There’s no denying the fact that everyone loves an angular and sharp jawline. Out of all the jawline shapes, a V-shaped chin and jawline are widely considered the most beautiful. Our fellowship-trained facial cosmetic surgeon can help you achieve a chiseled jawline using personalized surgical techniques that target the lower-thirds of your face.
The Beauty of V-Shaped Jawline
A well-defined jawline is something that almost everyone desires. A symbol of youth, good health, and beauty, a V-shaped jawline can make a person look more youthful, attractive, and elegant. Dr. Fathimani specializes in jawline contouring and chin surgery to help you achieve a V-shaped jawline in Lone Tree, Colorado.
What is V-Line Surgery?
V-line surgery 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.
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. 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.
- Follow all of your surgeon’s instructions regarding aftercare, including taking antibiotics.
- Don’t smoke because that can impede healing and increase the risk of complications.
- Eat healthy and stay hydrated to improve healing.
