Jaw implants can drastically improve one's appearance and self-esteem. Whether it's for a more feminine or masculine look or a sharper and more defined jawline, there are options available to achieve the desired result.

What are Jaw Implants?

Jaw implants are a type of cosmetic surgery that can dramatically change the appearance of one's face. The procedure involves inserting synthetic or biological materials into the jaw to improve its shape and size. Different types of implants augment different parts of the jaw. Lower jaw implants or mandible jaw implants augment the mandible, and upper jaw implants augment the maxillary bone. 

When getting jaw implants, females especially, benefit from a more feminine and aesthetically pleasing jawline. However, with jaw implants, males can create a more masculine and chiseled appearance. The results of jaw implants can be permanent and long-lasting, but the success of the procedure largely depends on the skill of the surgeon and the patient's individual healing process.

Who Can Have Jaw Implants? 

Jawline implants are a popular choice for individuals who want a more defined and contoured jawline. The implants can create a sharper and more angular jawline, or add volume to a flat or recessed jaw.

Jaw implants may be appropriate for those who:

  • Have a weak or underdeveloped jawline
  • Have an asymmetrical jawline
  • Desire a more defined or angular jawline
  • Have experienced a loss of jawline definition due to aging or weight loss
  • Have suffered a facial injury or deformity that has affected the shape or size of the jaw

For individuals who do not have enough bone in their jaw to support implants, a jaw bone graft may be necessary. Jaw bone grafts for implants involve taking bone from another part of the body, such as the hip or rib, and transplanting it to the jaw.

Jaw Implants Procedure Treatment Duration  

In general, a jaw implant procedure typically takes about 1-2 hours to complete. However, this can vary depending on the complexity of the surgery and the number of implants being placed.

Jaw Implants Side Effects

  • Swelling and bruising: It is common to experience swelling and bruising in the jaw and surrounding areas after the surgery. This should gradually subside over a few days.
  • Pain and discomfort: Some level of pain and discomfort is normal after the procedure, but it can usually be managed with pain medication prescribed by the surgeon.
  • Infection: There is a risk of infection after any surgical procedure, but this can be minimized by following post-operative instructions and keeping the surgical area clean.
  • Numbness: Some patients may experience numbness in the lower lip or chin area due to nerve damage during the surgery. This is typically temporary and should improve as the nerves heal.
  • Implant rejection or displacement: Although rare, there is a risk that the body may reject the implant, or it may shift or become dislodged after the surgery.

Mandible Jaw Implants Recovery Time

During the first few days after the procedure, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the jaw area. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort, and patients may also be advised to use ice packs to help reduce swelling.

Patients should follow all post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon, which may include avoiding certain foods and activities for a period of time, as well as taking any prescribed medications as directed. Patients should also be careful to keep the surgical site clean to prevent infection.

It's important to note that it may take several months for the jaw implant to fully integrate with the surrounding bone tissue, and during this time, patients should avoid putting undue stress on the implant area.

Jaw Implants Surgery Success Rate

Jaw implant surgery has a generally high success rate when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. The success of the surgery can depend on several factors, including the patient's individual anatomy, the type of implant used, and the surgeon's skill and technique.  

Studies have shown that the long-term success rate of jaw implant surgery is generally good, with a low risk of implant displacement, infection, or other complications.

How Are Jaw Implants Procedure Performed?

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, and the surgeon will make incisions inside the mouth or under the chin to access the jawbone. The implant is then carefully placed into the jawbone and secured in place with screws or other fixation devices.

How To Prepare For Jaw Implants Treatment?

  • Research. It is recommended to research the procedure you want to get to have a better understanding. This will help you make an informed decision. 
  • Look at jaw implants before and after pictures to make sure you want the procedure
  • Research the jaw implants cost as the procedure is not covered by insurance
  • Rest, and adjust the dosage of any anti-hypertensives and blood-thinning medication you are on, as recommended by your doctor

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
