Overview of the surgery:
V-line surgery is a type of plastic surgery procedure use for the reduction the chin to a more
slender and oval shape without increasing its length. The surgery also reduces the overly strong bone
flanking each side of the chin, thus transforming the more masculine U shape to a sharper and more
feminine V shape.
The chin line is excised into a smooth line. The chin end can be brought together without touch of the
nerve. The protruding parts in both sides of the mandible are excised.
The narrowed chin end produces the wholly oval V-line face type.
The surgery may be performed 3-4 hours depending on the extent of the operation.
Care after surgery:
You will be told to keep your head elevated and as still as possible for a couple of days after surgery to
help minimize swelling. Avoid alcohol, steam baths, and saunas for several months. Above all, get
plenty of rest and allow your body to spend its energy on healing.
You may be able to go back to work at least 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Strenuous activities should be
avoided, including heavy housework for at least 2 weeks but walking and mild stretching is fine.

corrections, patient can assure a free of charge revision.
