Moving the Jaw Forward in Patients with a Receding Jaw:
This move can be performed in different ways. Carrying out a customized treatment is essential. Especially in jaw aesthetics, we do not prefer bone related procedures in adjusting receding jaws, in other words, we make additions to the required place without touching the bone.
These additional materials can be materials made of silicone, as well as materials that are called medpor and that integrate with the body, gain a bony structure over time when it is placed on the bone. We can place these structures through incisions made below the jaw or inside the mouth.
Additionally, again for our patients, who do not need big improvements, fat injection is the saviour for us. We can achieve enlargement in the jaw by a special preparation of fat extracted from the body and its injection into the jaw.
Of course, it needs to be done within certain limits. In these patients, 40 to 60 percent of the fat we inject proves permanent. This way, we are able to achieve an augmented jaw.
Jaw aesthetics can also be provided with fillers. We can make a protruding jaw look behind with the fillers we apply to the sides. This way, we are able to achieve an optical illusion.
For a receding jaw, we can perform jaw aesthetics by applying longer-lasting fillers, which last 15-18 months, without taking anything from the body. For sure, the jaw is an important part of the face and having this procedure done properly by an experienced doctor is of utmost importance.
