Jaw Angle Reduction

Overview of the surgery:
Jaw Angle Reduction  is also called Reduction Angleplasty is done to individuals who have wide
jaw line or square face. It reduces the width of the lower face and change a square face to an oval one.
This procedure can enhance the masculine features, in men while in women it can give an impression
of strength and confidence.  In some, however, the jaw can be disproportionately wide as compared to
the rest of the face or zygomas and mandibular angles are overly prominent that upsets the balance of
the face. This is one reason for aesthetic Mandible Angle Reduction. The incision of mandible angle
reduction is commonly done inside the mouth which means the scar will be invisible.
The procedure is performed about 1-2 hours.
Care after surgery:
Swelling and skin discoloration are common and usually will subside within a week or two. Stitches
will be removed after about seven days. When the operation is carried out from the inside of mouth,
gargle your mouth with mouthwash for at least 10 days. Keep incision region clean and dry. Apply
prescribed antibiotic ointment to staples and stitches. Dry thoroughly with gauze. Keep ice
compresses on the surgical region continuously for the first 48 hours. Do not use hot dryer, when dry
up your hair. Avoid steam baths and saunas for several months. Start with clear fluids and increase as
tolerated. Avoid foods that are chewy for the first 2 weeks. No chewing of hard foods or tough foods
for 2-4 weeks after surgery. You are to stay on a light diet. No alcohol and no smoking for 2 weeks if
possible as they increase swelling; or have only in moderation. You will be asked to keep your head
slightly elevated for a few days. Rest quietly in bed with head raised on 2 – 3 pillows. During the first
48 hours bed rest is recommended. During the next 3 to 5 days, you should restrict your normal
activities, no housework and no physical labor. During the first 5 days after surgery, it is most
important not to engage in any activity which will elevate the blood pressure and possibly increase
bruising, swelling and bleeding. Walking is permitted as tolerable. Do not lie face down for one
month. When bending down, bend at knees, not with head down.
Recovery period:
Expect to feel tired for 7 – 10 days after surgery, especially after anesthetics. Don’t rub or scratch
surgical region for at least 2 weeks. Wound dressing should be done twice a day for 7 days, after tape is
removed. Take antibiotic for 14 days after surgery. Do not take any vitamin E and aspirin (or acetyl
salicylic acid) for 14 days after surgery, because they can increase your tendency to bleed and
prescription pain medications will be given for pain relief.
