While lower square jaws are often considered a positive trait in men, a wide lower jaw in women can distort the natural appearance of the angle between the chin and the neck, and cause significant facial discordance and/or masculinization of the female face. Even in certain men, the size of the lower jaw can cause facial disharmony—particularly when there is asymmetry. This square jaw appearance is further accentuated in Asians because of their smaller facial structures.
Square jaw reduction can create an almond shaped face shape for ladies and a youthful sleek look for the men.
Our dental specialist/ dentist will find out the details of your medical and dental history, go through a consultation and examination, and take digital X-rays of your teeth to enable a thorough and detailed diagnosis. Part of your examination includes checking the joints and muscles for tenderness, clicking, popping or difficulty in opening/ closing. We may also make a replica model of your teeth to see how your bite fits together.
Our dental specialist/ dentist will analyse your facial features and recommend the most appropriate solution for an optimal outcome.
For individuals who undergo the surgical reduction of square jaw, home rest of 2 to 3 days is recommended after surgery. It takes around 1 to 2 weeks after surgery for the swelling/ bruising to subside. Strenuous exercise for about 1 month after surgery should also be avoided.
Reduction of square jaw by Botox injections is a simple 10-minute procedure. Recovery time is minimal and most people return to normal activities immediately after treatment. After injection, it takes about 3 days for Botox® to begin taking affect and around 7 days to see full results.
