What is a jawbone reduction surgery?
Jawbone reduction surgery involves the jaw area of the face. Which means the bone called the mandible, as well as the masseter muscle.
Who should get a jawbone reduction surgery?
Patients who have a wide jawbone or very big jaw muscle can get this surgery done. A wide jaw will make the patient look much more masculine if they're female, and for males, it can make them look rougher.
What does the surgery involve?
The surgery involves reducing the jawbone if the patient has an enlarged bone or a wider bone. Also, if the muscle is big, then the muscle needs to be partially removed.
It requires jawbone reduction, and this is done in my office Dr. Edmund Kwan, MD. in New York City.
