What Are Jawline Implants?

In most cultures across the world, a strong jawline is seen as a beautiful part of the face. When a person gets older, gains weight, or suffers from an injury, the jawline can start to lose definition. To create a stronger-looking jawline, jaw implants can improve the shape of the lower, outer part of the jaw. Depending on your cosmetic goals, we can make the jaw look more feminine or masculine. If you would like to learn more, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK with Dr. Angelo Cuzalina.

Are Jawline Implants For You?

Jawline implants can help patients with a variety of cosmetic issues, including:

  • A jawline looks wide or undefined because of aging, weight loss, or weight gain
  • Overbites, open bites, or other types of bites that impact the appearance of the face
  • Asymmetry due to an injury or a congenital defect

As a safe treatment option, jawline implants help patients attain a stronger jawline or improve their oral health. With years of experience, Dr. Cuzalina is a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon who specializes in facial and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Surgical Technique

In one of our private, accredited AAAHC operating rooms, Dr. Cuzalina will start by administering anesthesia or an IV sedative. Once you have completely relaxed, Dr. Cuzalina creates small incisions inside the mouth and inserts the implants through the incisions. When the implants are against the bone, we place small screws to secure the implants. He will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures and use bandages to control bleeding or discharge. Typically, the surgery takes about 1 – 2 hours to complete. You should see noticeable results after the surgery, which will get better as your body starts to heal.

What to Expect

Following your procedure, you will experience some swelling and bruising. These symptoms will subside in about 1 – 2 days. You will also have some tightness near the treatment area, which will start to feel more normal as you get used to the implant. For 2 – 10 days, you should avoid food items that require you to chew because this could interfere with your healing. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions that outline how to care for your incisions and reduce discomfort. In addition to caring for your incisions, you should avoid strenuous exercise, and you will need to sleep upright for a few days.
