There are several jaw reduction techniques available - by surgical and non-surgical. Ideally prior to selection of a treatment, you will examined to determine whether the cause is due to the bone, the masseter or both. Additionally, if a treatable cause is present it should be identified.
Jaw contouring surgical techniques are used to directly reduce the size of an enlarged mandible. Incision can be to the inside or outside of the mouth, though the internal incision is the most common because it leaves no visible scar
Non-surgical techniques are essentially limited to cases in which the masseter is enlarged. A convenient method to treat an enlarged muscle is through the use of Botox injections. Botox is injected into the enlarged muscle, weakening it so it slowly becomes smaller through atrophy over several months.
After Jaw Contouring surgery there are some numbness and temporary discomfort may persist around the incision for several days. But this can be controlled with pain medication. The bruising and swelling that does occur will usually subside considerably in the first week.
Bandages will come off a day or two after Jaw Contouring surgery. Stitches from the surgery are removed during the 5 -7 days, though this varies from patient to patient.
Normal work can be resumed 10 days (desk job) after a Jaw Contouring procedure. You should be able to shower and wash your hair a few days after the bandages come off. However, vigorous activity should be limited for several weeks, including jogging, bending, sex, or any activity that increases your blood pressure.
Most of the visible signs of Jaw Contouring surgery should disappear within couple months. Minor swelling or bruising can usually be hidden within a few weeks. Do not worry if you feel a bit tired and let down at first as your body heals itself and you begin to look better.
Most persons are usually very satisfied with their new look once their surgery site has completely healed. Patients often do not realize just how much their reduction contributed to an older appearance until they see their new refreshed look.
Recovery time following Jaw Contouring is about 2 - 3 weeks (desk job). Patients are allowed to go about their regular routines in a week, which mean minimal impact day-to-day life.
Normal appearance close to the final may take up to one to two months after surgery. For fully recovery close to natural result may seen around three months after surgery or when residual swelling has gone.
