What is long face surgery?

A surgery which corrects a long face with a long central region of the face or a developed lower jaw

This surgery corrects a long face with a long central region of the face or a developed lower jaw.

The surgery reduces the length of the face by considering the ideal facial proportion and makes a three dimensional and refined young look.

In the case the face looks long simply due to a long lower jaw, facial contouring surgery alone can solve the problem depending on the cause of the long face.

Special features of VIEW’s long jaw surgery

Ideal customized facial proportion

The surgical procedure perfects the ideal proportion of 1:1:0.8 from the forehead to the tip of the chin.

Younger-looking effect

This surgery reduces the face length into an ideal proportion and perfects a three dimensional and refined young-looking image.

Bone scalpel

A safe and precise surgery is made possible because this device responds only to bones without damaging important nerves and blood vessels.

Bone scalpel enhancing the accuracy
The bone scalpel is an ultrasonic device which cuts the bones by responding only to the bone tissues.

It has less vibration within 0.5mm enabling a very precise surgery, protects nearby blood vessels and nerves by responding only to bones, causes less tissue damages and bleeding and provides quick recovery.

When you need long face surgery

01If you have a long skeleton of the central face and developed lower jar

02If you have a long skeleton of the central face

03If your gums show a lot when smiling

Surgery method

It is different from conventional bimaxillary osteotomy in that the surgery does not simply push the chin inward but reduces its length as well.
It forms a facial length in an ideal proportion with an exact reduction without any error.

1

The lengths of the upper and lower jaw is reduced by considering the ideal proportion of the face.

2

The shortened upper and lower jaws is moved upwards to dramatically reduce the facial length.

TIP
If the length of the central face is normal and only the lower chin is long

Cause 1. Lantern jaw surgery which corrects the lower jaw position is effective for long lower chin due to lantern jaw or malocclusion.

Cause 2. If the occlusion is normal and the lower jaw is simply long, front chin (chin tip) surgery can reduce the lower chin length.

3Fast fixing

The fast fixation is a short-term fixation procedure for 2 – 3 days to help the chin joints settle in a more stable position.
The joints are fixed with rubber bands rather than metal wires for the free movement of the chin and comfortable breathing, eating and conversation.

43D CT satisfying both precision and safety

It is important to accurately identify the position of the neural gland and understand the bone structure (size, width, thickness, length) due to difficulty in securing a good field of vision during the facial bone surgery.

View Plastic Surgery Clinic performs 3D-CT imaging for 3D analysis to precisely identify the bone structure and the position of the neural gland, effectively solve problems in the function of the chin and aesthetic issues, and minimize nerve damage through a safe surgery.

53D Morpheus virtual surgery simulation for predicting surgery results

Morpheus 3D scans the facial information, predicts the facial appearance after the surgery and displays a 3D image through cutting-edge 3D simulation.

It can precisely take images within less than 0.1mm error, scientifically evaluates the progress by 3D facial image comparison, and is able to effectively change the surgery plan if required.

This makes it possible for both the doctor and patient to share the surgery goal for a more precise surgery.
