What is V-Line Surgery?

V-line surgery in Lone Tree is a type of cosmetic surgery that alters the shape of your jawline to make it appear more V-shaped. The procedure involves shaving down the bone and cartilage on both sides of your jaw, chin, and mandible, and in some cases, removing excess fat from the area. Most people opt for V-line surgery to correct a jaw that is naturally square-shaped or oval, and to achieve a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of V-Line Surgery

V-line surgery is a type of facial cosmetic surgery that narrows the jawline and creates a more V-shaped appearance. This surgery is often done in combination with other facial surgeries, such as a chin reduction or rhinoplasty. A V-shaped face is often seen as being more youthful and attractive, so if your face is too wide or “boxy”, V-line surgery in Lone Tree may be a good option for you. This procedure can also correct any imbalances in your facial features.

The V-Line Surgery Process

Dr. Fathimani curates a highly personalized V-line surgical plan based on your unique anatomy and goals. After administering local anesthesia or general anesthesia, the surgeon makes small incisions inside the mouth. After making the incisions, the surgeon trims away the surrounding jawbone tissues to make your face look more tapered and v-shaped. The surgeon will also make an incision near the front of the mouth to modify the chin shape, following which the incisions are closed with stitches.

V-Line Surgery: Recovery & Downtime

The recovery process following V-Line surgery is typically very short, with most patients only needing a few days to rest and recover before resuming normal activities. However, there is often some bruising and swelling around the surgical area that can last for a few weeks. You must avoid strenuous activities during this time to prevent bleeding and further swelling.

Most patients report minimal pain and discomfort following V-line surgery in Lone Tree. However, pain medication can be used if necessary. It is important to keep the surgical area clean and dry to prevent infection. You will likely see your surgeon for a follow-up appointment a week or so after surgery. You must follow the surgeon’s aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal healing.

V-Line Surgery: Aftercare Guidelines

  • Apply an ice pack to the area for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
  • Sleep with your head elevated on pillows for the first few nights.
  • Avoid hot showers, saunas, and steam rooms for at least 2 weeks.
  • Avoid strenuous activity and rubbing the area for at least 2 weeks.
