Jaw Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions 


Jaw Augmentation (Mandibular) Facial Plastic Surgery

JAW AUGMENTATION (MANDIBULAR) SURGERY

A strong jaw in men can give them that “chiseled” look and portray create the appearance of masculinity whereas a weak jaw may appear feminine.

It can give balance to what is a less defined face or further augment an existent jaw structure

WHAT IS JAW AUGMENTATION SURGERY?

Dr. Slupchynskyj's Jaw Augmentation Surgery involves uses synthetics or biological materials to augment, and make the mandibular structure of the face more prominent and aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Slupchynskyj's technique involves an oral approach where the incisions are made inside the mouth, on either side of the lower lip, creating pockets in which to insert the Jaw Implants. It is important to know that the Jaw Implant is shaped to match your specific jaw line. Dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions. There are no visible scars in this case and oral incisions heal quickly.

IS JAW AUGMENTATION RIGHT FOR ME?

Good health and realistic expectations are necessary for any successful result in cosmetic surgery. Jaw Augmentation Surgery is a good choice if you have a weak or inferior jaw and wish for a stronger, more defined jaw. Jaw Augmentation Surgery is also a good choice to enhance what you naturally have. During your consultation, Dr. Slupchynskyj will help determine your needs by examining your overall facial structure from front and as well as both profile views. Symmetry of your cheek, chin and nose will also be taken into consideration and analyzed. It is not uncommon to learn that you may require Cheek Augmentation and or Chin Augmentation to create facial features in complete harmony with each other. After examining your face, Dr. Slupchynskyj will discuss with you his suggested placement, shape and size of the Jaw Implants. Last, risks, which may affect surgical outcome, will be discussed at length.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING MY JAW AUGMENATION SURGERY?

Jaw Augmentation Surgery is performed under local anesthesia and light sedation. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and lasts approximately one to two hours depending upon the case and if you have another procedure being performed. Your results are immediate. Your ability to speak and smile may be limited the first few days. Swelling peaks at about 48 hours post surgery, which is normal and will start to diminish within five to seven days and resolve completely within a few weeks.

Dr. Slupchynskyj will advise you to avoid any strenuous activity until he is confident you are healed.

You will be advised to chew soft or liquid foods and maintain excellent oral hygiene during the healing process, as lack of oral hygiene increases risk of infection.
