How Is Jawline Enhancement Done in Iran?
Jaw augmentation in Iran is performed with different surgical and non-surgical methods by trained and experienced plastic surgeons.
As mentioned earlier, there are two surgical and non-surgical methods for jaw augmentation. Now we’re going through each of the mentioned methods separately.
Surgical Jawline Augmentation
This surgery which is also referred to as jaw implants, is ideal for men and women with small jaws, giving them an angular and strong jawline.
Jaw implants are also called gonial angle implants because they augment the gonial angle of the jaw. These manufactured implants are designed for different jawline shapes.
This surgery is done under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes incisions inside the mouth. Then, the implant is placed through the incisions, hidden inside the mouth, right against the jawbone behind the masseter muscle and is held in place with titanium screws.
After the placement of the implants, the incisions are closed in layers in order to avoid the fluids in the mouth to enter into the wound. This procedure usually takes about 1- 2 hours.
Sometimes chin augmentation is also performed simultaneously with the jawline augmentation surgery. Chin implants are placed through small incisions made inside the lower lips. People with small and weak chins can benefit from this surgery along with jaw enhancement. These will give them more balanced facial features and looks.
What type of jaw implants are used in Iran?
Medapor and silicone implants are the two main types of jawline implants. The body tissues can grow into Medapor implants and they have the benefit of being more stable than silicone implants.
In Iran, Medapor and silicone implants are used based on your condition and preference. Also, FDA-approved mentor implants are very popular in the country as they yield more satisfactory results.
PROs and CONs of jaw augmentation surgery
The advantage of this surgery is that there are no external scars because all of the incisions are made from inside of the mouth. Furthermore, the implants can result in more harmony as they can be shaped to match the patient’s jawline.
After enhancing your jawline, you’ll experience limited ability to smile, talk, and open your mouth and you may go through some level of discomfort for a limited time. It also takes a few weeks or months to see the final results.
Non-surgical Jawline Enhancement
Another type of jawline contouring treatment is a non-surgical method which is called dermal filler jawline injections.
Filler injection for jawline is done in clinics specialized in skin care and cosmetic procedures in Iran. The cost depends on the volume used in each session, which is usually about 2 CC. It also depends on the type of gel, doctor and clinical services.
This procedure starts first by wiping the area with alcohol. The doctor applies topical anesthetics to the area. Then, the filler is injected and is massaged in order to mold it into place. Dermal filler injection takes no more than 15 minutes.
PROs and CONs of jaw augmentation with fillers
- No downtime and hospital stay
- No external or internal scarring
- No need for general anesthesia
- Reversible process
- Immediate results
- It does not correct every problem
- The results are temporary
- You will experience swelling after the injection which will subside within 3 to 4 days
Recovery after Jawline Augmentation Procedures
The duration and nature of your recovery period are determined based on whether you get a jaw implant or filler injection.
After jawline surgery, swelling and soreness are common. The swelling may increase especially within 24-48 hours after the operation. The major swelling subsides after a few days, but some swelling may remain for weeks and even months. So, it will take a few months in order to see the final results.
Generally, you will need to take around 1 week off from work. During the healing time, smiling, fully moving the mouth, and talking might be limited. Appropriate diet and eating habits must be advised by the doctor.
After getting jawline enhancement fillers, there’s no specific recovery involved. You’d be able to go home and resume your work immediately after the injection. However, you may experience swelling, numbness, and discomfort for a few days after the procedure.
