Before & After iWELL’s Mini V Line

iWELL’s mini V line surgery is performed on patients with a long and round chin. It involves performing T-shaped osteotomy on the lower part of the jawbone and gathering the left and right bones together before fixing them in place and resecting the jawbone on the sides. This reduces the width of the chin and makes the jawline appear smoother, and this is why it is recommended to people with a wide chin that makes their face appear to be in a square shape.


– Round chin and dull, unrefined appearance
– Wide and large face


– Feminine and refined appearance
– Smoother jawline and slimmer face

Chin Osteotomy VS iWELL’s Mini V Line

Chin Osteotomy iWELL’s Mini V Line
Result Improves the appearance of only the chin V-shaped face with noticeable changes in the contours
Method Must either reduce the length of the chin or move the jawbone Possible to reduce the length of the chin and move the jawbone by T-shaped osteotomy in addition to gathering the chin bones to create a slimmer jawline
Effectiveness Difficult to improve the overall look of the jawline as there are limitations in slimming down the face by simply changing the appearance of the chin Can create a natural-looking V line by slimming down the jawline from the chin to the back

Mini V Line Surgery Procedure

01 Determine the exact locations of the jawline and nerves based on a 3D-CT scan
02 Devise a safe and accurate surgical plan through a 3D image analysis
03 Perform T-shaped osteotomy and remove the bone fragment in the middle
04 Gather together the bones and fix them firmly in place
05 Gather together the bones and fix them firmly in place
06 Perform a resection of the square jaw next to the outer corners of the mouth
07 Perform a resection of the rear part of the cortical bone, which reduces the thickness of the jawbone and makes the face appear slimmer from the front
08 Suture the incision site and provide individually customized post-op care

But wait!

Are you hesitant to have metal pins in your body?

iWELL mini V line surgery can be performed using absorbable pins and screws that are not noticeable.

Metal pins are used to fix bones in place during mini V line surgery. They are not visible to the naked eye, but they can be seen on an X-ray or CT scan, and this is why some people are reluctant to undergo this type of surgery. If this is the case for you, you can choose “transparent contouring,” which involves the use of absorbable pins (osteo trans), which get integrated into the bones and disappear over time.


Special Characteristics of iWELL’s Mini V Line Surgery

V Line Achieved with Minimal Incision
Unlike the square jaw resection method, only the chin is operated on, so the procedure is relatively simpler. Minimal incision is made to reduce pain and bleeding as well.
V Line Designed According to Your Face Shape
The key point when it comes to mini V line surgery is to create V line that is in a harmonious balance with the rest of the face by taking into consideration the original face shape of the patient.
Maximized Slimming Effect from the Front!
After the T-shaped osteotomy, the bones are gathered together as much as possible so that the jawline appears slimmer even from the front!
Safe Procedure That Avoids the Nerves
High-tech equipment such as 3D-CT and 3D scanner equipment is used to accurately locate the nerves and determine the facial structure to ensure safety and minimize adverse effects.
Same-Day Discharge and Fast Recovery
Because this is a relatively simple procedure performed on the chin, there is no need for hospitalization. Bleeding is minimized to reduce swelling and ensure a speedy recovery.

Facial Contouring

Advanced Medical System

The low-dose 3D-CT equipment at iWELL helps maximize the scope of CT scanning and allows a more accurate assessment of the bone structure of the face thanks to its high resolution. There is also a 3D scanner with which a virtual plastic surgery procedure can be performed as a way to predict the results. Through these measures, individually tailored facial contouring surgery can be performed in a safer and more accurate manner.
