Jawline contouring surgery can provide significant improvements in the shape of your face and restore overall facial balance. Jawline surgery, also known as V-line surgery, is a surgery performed to surgically reshape the jawbone and can change the patient’s appearance from the front as well as the side view.

During Surgery

  • If you want to undergo facial bone reshaping surgery, you need to prepare well to achieve the desired results and avoid complications. Preparation for facial bone shaping may vary depending on the procedure performed. Therefore, you should always ask your doctor what you should do beforehand. In general, and regardless of the procedure you are about to do, you should:
  • Quit smoking: Quit smoking 4 to 6 weeks before surgery.
  • Avoid alcohol consumption: Drinking alcohol can increase the chance of bleeding during and after the procedure. You should avoid alcohol for about a week before the surgery.
  • Avoid using blood thinners: It is not recommended to take blood thinners before surgery. If you are taking these, tell your doctor and ask if you should stop taking the medication or use an alternative.
  • Stop herbal remedies: Just because they’re natural doesn’t mean they can’t harm you. Ask your doctor about any herbal medicine you are taking and whether you need to stop it before surgery.
  • Protect yourself from the sun: Try to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen. It is better to have a natural skin tone during surgery.
  • Avoid eating the night before surgery: Eating before surgery can interfere with anesthesia, so you should stop eating the night before surgery. On the other hand, you should drink enough water and stay hydrated.
  • Medical tests: Some surgeries may require some blood tests and imaging. Ask your surgeon if you need any tests, especially if you are about to use a surgical approach.

Preparation also includes preparing your mind. Some approaches are irreversible, so you need to know exactly what to do. Ask for some images from people who have had surgery before, and be honest with your doctor about your expectations, and let them know if you have any concerns.

After Surgery

Recovery after face contouring depends mainly on the procedure you have undergone, and recovery time will vary accordingly. Subsequent recovery time varies from a few days to 3 to 4 weeks. To avoid possible complications and make sure you get the best results, you should consider the following:
  • Get some rest and avoid sports for a few weeks.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol for a month after the surgery.
  • Sleep with your head elevated.
  • If there is swelling, use cold packs.
  • Avoid hard foods that are difficult to chew.
