What is a square jaw reduction?
Facial contouring surgery
A square jaw indicates when a face seems square angles due to broad and angled mandibular bone.
The angled bone underneath the ear may cause a broader look than its actual size.
In this case we suggest square jaw reduction and can remove the angled jaw
as well as the width of the frontal chin to make a slim face
Face / Facial Contouring surgeries are at Grand

jaw resection

creates a smooth line
by resection the corner
of lower jaw. Trimming
he line not to make
a “secondary angle”
is important.
When the jaw bone is
thick, we resect the bone
incrustment to make
the narrowed
chin line
Jaw Reduction

We perform both cortical and square jaw resection simultaneously to maximize the front effects,
so you will be able to see the effect in anytime.

Grand is using laser for square jaw surgery.
You can have a facial contouring surgery which breaking bones
smoothly without hear injury or vibration by using water and laser.

 01| It has fewer cracks than cutting out the bone with the saw. 
 Laser light is accelerating cell division
 so it helps combining reproduction. 
 03| Less damage and hemorrhage to blood vessel, and soft tissue. 
 04| Less bleeding. 
 05| Surgery procedure is sade.

Reduction in both square jaw and width of the bone
It is differed from the existing surgeries which cut only the angled jaw,
but perform the cortical resection to reduce the width of bone to make an obvious outcome.

It’s safe
It requires incision in many nerves and facial bone, thus it has to be done by skillful surgeon.
As we analysis the face with 3D concisely and considers not to touch the neural gland as one of the
most important point, this high degree surgeries could be done safely.

A complex resection for a severe square jaw
We perform a complex resection when patient has a severe square jaw.
This complex resectioning square jaw surgeryguarantees the
very slim and small chin line even to those who have strong angled jaw.

A thorough after care and recovery system
After the surgery, we provide after care system to soothe swelling and pain,
thus shortening the recovery period.

Through an accurate 3D CT scanning, a beautiful face contour is created.
As each patients has different anatomical structure it might cause
different complications during surgery (nerve damage which might
cause paresthesia,abnormal anatomical structure which cause excessive
bleeding, a respiratory failure which might happen during full
anesthesia, difficulties on respiratory after the surgery etc)
has been check-up before hand, it’ not only a matter of discussing
the surgery method scientifically but also about having a shorter
surgery time to reduce the recovery time as well.

Check up using the most common 2D(panorama, W-ray etc)
system, to get a check up on a 3D face through a flat picture
might cause error and it might be hard to get a detailed check-up
For a more
accurate diagnosis
3D CT scanning is used

The methodology of square jaw reduction
Facial contouring surgery
Mandibular resection
This makes the face slim by resecting jaw bone underneath the ear. It has a slim and smooth view inside
view inside way than the front because we resected the exact angulated bone.
Cortical resection
It enhances the slimming effect by reducing the width of jaw bone.
Eliminating only one external layer among the three layered bone structure,
the actual face size will be reduced and can intensify the slim-looking effect.
V-line square jaw
When the chin tip is too broad to have limitation reducing the size with mandibular removal,
we can add a T-ostetomy to reduce the width and make the face overall slim.
Round Roation Shaving
When the chin tip is quite broad,
it is better performing the mandibular resection bit longer than the general one.
Square jaw reduction and chin correction lead to facial contour correcting effect
as well as asymmetrical correction, thus the outcome and satisfaction are positive.
Minimum-incisional square jaw surgery
It is taken with a minimum-incision when you already have an idealistic shape of jaw but have an excessively
developed mandibular. Not penetrating inside of the mouth, instead, as it is performed through
a small hole underneath the ears, post surgical awkwardness is very rare while having fast recovery as its advantages.
However, it could be used restrictively when the shape of jaw is idealistic,
thus the result could be also restricted if you have problem on the whole mandibular area.

Then who needs a square jaw reduction?

Grand's square jaw reduction surgical designing system
Facial contouring surgery

It is for the main structure of
face such as square jaw
and the tip to make better
facial contour.
It is an “Image Surgery”
which can change one’s
appearance into much more
clear and refreshed image.

Round rotate shaving is also
a type of facial contouring
surgeries and has to consider
of the overall facial image
and visual effect around
nose and lips which might
be accompanied
by the surgery.

Medical photos and an x-ray
of the whole face are
taken one week before the
surgery, so the result
is minutely planned.

This kind of
‘planned surgery system’
gives the beauty which cannot
be compared to other hospitals
which performs operation
with only surgeon’s
hunch and sense.

 After care is also important after facial contouring 
It is advised to use ice pack right after the surgery until swelling goes down.
Fasting for a day after the surgery and taking soft food
(thin rice gruel, juice, milk and drinkable liquid food) is recommended.
Taking normal food is possible 2 weeks after the surgery, however, cut side dishes into pieces
and eat solid food 4 weeks after the surgery.
Wear compression band for 3-4 days after the surgery and avoid bending head down or lying on the
stomach. Sleepingwith 2-3 pillows under the head will help with subsiding pain.
Gargle to keep clean inside the mouth after taking meal in order to prevent inflammation
and infection inside the mouth.
Smoking and drinking will slow down healing wound. If unavoidable,
they are possible 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
Going through heavy shock should be avoided Every patient has swelling after the surgery,
however depending on quantity matter and individual constitution may affect the condition
