The shape of the jaw makes a huge difference to the overall appearance of the face. However, the procedure often requires a surgeon to reshape the bone, so it is considered a more serious type of cosmetic surgery. It is therefore important to work with an experienced surgeon who has had a lot of practice doing this type of surgery. Jaw shaping is not as common in the UK or the US, so it tends to cost about $8,000 there. However, most Asian countries know just how much a perfectly shaped jaw improves good looks, so a foreign surgeon may be more qualified to perform a jaw shaping surgery. At our partner clinics, you can easily find surgeons who have plenty of experience performing the surgery, and it is normally only about $4,000 for the routine surgery.

The overall cost of a jaw shaping surgery will depend on the different procedures needed. At one of our many skilled partner clinics, you will be paired with a surgeon who has the experience to create a perfect jaw shape that will balance your face.

How Does a Jaw Shaping Procedure Work?

The first step in a jaw shaping surgery will be applying a general anesthesia before beginning to shape the jaw. If a patient has a wide, excessively square, or misshapen jaw, most of the surgery will focus on shaving off excessive jawbone. A surgery to slim the jawline is the most common type of jaw shaping, but some people actually need a jaw shaping surgery that increases parts of the jawline. Implants can be used to fix a receding jawline and make it look more pronounced. Once the ideal shape is finished, any incisions will be closed with dissolving stitches. Since this surgery is somewhat invasive, patients may need to spend a few nights at the hospital so that recovery can be monitored. Most severe swelling and bruising will be gone after 6 weeks, but it can take several months for the complete results to be evident.

The severity of this surgery means that it is only recommended for patients who are truly unhappy with their face shape and desire a permanent and lasting change. It is not advised for those who are ill or have other health conditions. However, as long as a patient is in good health, they will typically be able to get surgery for the jawline they desire.
