Before & After iWELL’s Long Curved Square Jaw Surgery

iWELL’s long curved square jaw surgery helps create a slimmer face by refining from square jaws beneath the ears to the side jawlines as a single piece. As it is performed in long curved shape along the entire jawline, it makes the face appear smaller and slimmer from the side and the front.

BEFORE

– Wide and large face
– Masculine and unrefined look
– Looks older than one’s actual age

AFTER

– Soft, feminine look
– Smoother jawline and slimmer face
– More youthful appearance

But wait… Is it possible to shave down the jawline all the way to the chin all at once?

At iWELL, we perform long curved rotation sculpting surgery, which involves cutting the lower edges of the jawbone from the mandibular angle to the chin. In this case, the ends of the jaw become clearly reduced in size and this is apparent not only from the side but also the front. However, this surgery is possible only if the patient does not need any chin surgery such as sliding genioplasty that involves moving the chin forward or backward. Square jaw surgery requires extra caution to prevent damaging the nerves, and at iWELL, a 3D-CT scan is performed prior to surgery to accurately determine where the nerves are running and formulate a surgical plan that ensures safety.

iWELL’s Unparalleled Facial Contouring Technology

Acquired a patent on a facial contouring surgical instrument for square jaw surgery that helps prevent damage to tissue, blood vessels and nerves!

A retractor for square jaw surgery that prevents damage to the blood vessels and nerves has been developed by iWELL and a patent has been granted by the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) in recognition of its safety and effectiveness.

iWELL’s Long Curved Square Jaw 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 Make a 4cm incision inside the mouth and perform a bone resection from the square jaw below the ears to the end of the jawline in a meticulous manner to prevent a secondary angle (uneven jawline)
04 Perform a resection of the square jaw next to the outer corners of the mouth
05 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
06 Perform muscle resection to slim down the entire face
07 Perform long curved resection, T-shaped osteotomy and genioplasty based on the individual facial contours and bone structure
08 Suture the incision site and provide individually customized post-op care

Before & After iWELL’s V Line Square Jaw Surgery

iWELL’s V line square jaw surgery is a type of facial contouring surgery that maximizes the slimming-down effect from the frontal and profile view of the face. It is basically a combination of long curved square jaw reduction surgery, which involves making a curved resection of the jawline, and T-shaped osteotomy designed to reduce the size of the chin. The conventional method of reducing the appearance of a square jaw had limitations in slimming down the chin area as it centered on partial osteotomy. In contrast, iWELL’s V line square jaw surgery results in a perfect V line by combining long curved square jaw reduction and T-shaped osteotomy.

BEFORE

– Strong, masculine look
– Wide and large face
– Looking older than one’s actual age

AFTER

– Soft, feminine look
– Smoother jawline and slimmer face
– More youthful appearance

iWELL’s V Line Square Jaw Surgery Procedure

1. T-shaped osteotomy is performed on the chin.

2. The bone fragment in the middle is removed and the bones are gathered together and fixed in place with pins.

3. A curved resection is performed on the lower jaw in a meticulous manner to prevent a secondary angle (uneven jawline) and create a smooth V line.

4. Additional resection is performed on the cortical bone (incl. square jaws next to the outer corners of the mouth and rear part of the cortical bone) to create a slimmer jawline.

Conventional Square Jaw Surgery VS iWELL’s V Line Square Jaw Reduction

Conventional Square Jaw Surgery iWELL’s V Line Square Jaw Reduction
Effectiveness Secondary angle (uneven jawline) may occur as the focus is on removing the jawbone underneath the ears and this may necessitate corrective surgery Smooth jawline without any secondary angles is achieved through long curved resection and the slimming-down effect is maximized from the frontal view thanks to the effective T-shaped osteotomy
Description Difficulties in ensuring precision
• Difficult to accurately see the surgical site due to a narrow view
• Relatively large scope of tissue separation and large incision site
Can ensure safety and precision • Accurate assessment of the jawbone and nerve locations is made based on a 3D-CT scan, which makes it possible to accurately locate the surgical site, blood vessels, bone tissue, etc
•  Minimal tissue separation and incision into the soft tissue
Scope of Surgery One-dimensional surgery centering on partial osteotomy
• Focus on the square jaw area below the ears
Three-dimensional surgery that combines long curved resection, chin osteotomy, cortical osteotomy, and firm fixation • Long curved resection from below the ears to the chin
• Osteotomy performed on the chin and the square jaw next to the outer corners of the mount
• Cortical osteotomy and removal of excess muscle and fat along the jawline
• Lifting and fixation of the soft tissue to prevent sagging
Effectiveness The face looks slimmer from the side but not as much from the front The face looks slimmer from every angle including the front and the side
Swelling The long incision made in the oral cavity and excessive tissue separation raise the likelihood of tissue damage and bleeding, which in turn causes severe and prolonged swelling Unnecessary tissue damage is minimized for reduced swelling and bruising
Speed of Recovery Slow recovery Fast recovery
