Jaws are another area of the face that can be corrected through surgery. The angle of the lower jaws (just below the ear) is frequently augmented by an implant to give more width to the lower face. The implant will also outline the jawline and add volume to the jaw.


This operation is done under general anesthesia. It lasts about an hour or two. Mandibular (jaw) implants are inserted through incisions made inside the mouth on either side of the lower lip. The implants are fixed into position with one or two screws. The incision is then closed.


Jaw implants do not cause much pain. Swelling and minor bruising is gone in 7 to 14 days. There is no scar, and all sutures will dissolve over 10 to 14 days.


The results of your jaw (mandibular) implant surgery are seen immediately following surgery. Cold compresses placed over both sides of the face every hour for fifteen minutes (while awake) will decrease swelling and bruising. Swelling following mandibular implant surgery will decrease significantly over the first week. Swelling will continue to decrease over time and it should disappear completely after 4 to 6 weeks as your outcomes appear.


All procedures carry some risk. Possible complications from Jaw implant and chin surgery include: infection, bleeding, change in skin sensation due to nerve injury, swelling, and bruising.
