Jaw

“Beauty is not just skin deep”

It is surprising that that so few doctors practicing cosmetic facial surgery pay any attention to the underlying bone structure of the face when we all know that bone structure plays such an important part in facial aesthetics. How often do we hear the comment that a person looks good because she or he “has good bone structure”.

One of the most frequent reasons why a person will consult a surgeon about a facelift is because they want to improve their jawline. To have a good jawline after a facelift it is necessary to have a good bone structure.

The jawline can be improved in a number of ways but it is important to have your surgeon perform a thorough analysis. This may involve X-rays and a computer prediction which can demonstrate the changes in your appearance after any proposed surgery.
