When a wider jaw makes patients look heavier than they really are, many patients begin to consider cosmetic jaw surgery. NY area doctor, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD, is a plastic surgeon who can perform jaw surgeries to improve the contours for a more attractive appearance.
Many patients consider this treatment because they want a more oval-shaped face, want a more prominent jaw, or want to thin down the area for the appearance of a V-shape around their chin. The only way to achieve these contours is with cosmetic jaw surgery.
Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD performs jaw surgery under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in his practice. Using an incision in the inside of the mouth, he can file down the jawbone and remove excess muscle that may be contributing to the fuller, wider jaw area. This does not affect the ability of patients to speak, chew, or perform any other regular activities.
Patients must be appropriate candidates for jaw surgery. To start the process, Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD recommends x-rays and a consultation appointment. At this time, he can discuss with patients what options they have in enhancing their appearance and determine if jaw surgery or an alternative may be best. Patients who are serious about changing the contours of their jaw and enjoying a thinning, less prominent jawbone may be the best ones to undergo this procedure.
