What's V line surgery mean?

V-line surgery is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the jawline and chin to give the face a narrow aesthetic V-shape appearance. The surgery removes part of the jawline bone (mandible) to give your jaw a triangular shape.

In some cases, your surgeon might perform a chin implant or chin augmentation to improve the final results.

How Does It Work?

V line jaw surgery reshapes the angles of your jaw and chin. The surgeon will remove parts of your jaw bone (the mandible bone), so your jaw can take a triangular shape. Also, the tip of the chin is reshaped to give your jawline a sharper, narrower look.

What V line surgery Involve?

We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your preferences and needs and match you with the best V-line surgeon available in Turkey. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure. Here is what you can expect:

1. Final consultation with your specialist 

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with the specialist. During this session, you will share with the surgeon your medical record, allergies, and if you're currently taking any medication. The surgeon will discuss the treatment plan and best approach to your condition.

2. Examination before the V line surgery

After sharing with your surgeon your medical record, you must go through some medical tests. Then, you will discuss the procedure in detail. Your surgeon will use placemarks on the surgery areas.

3. The surgery  

You will be under general anesthesia; your surgeon will make an incision along your jawline, then they will use a special device to shave the jaw bone to create the v line shape. They may also shave your chin bone to enhance the final results or place a chin implant in some cases.

Your surgeon will close the incision and dress your wounds. Temporary draining tubes might be placed to drain any accumulated fluids like blood. After the surgery, you will wear a compressing garment.

What Should I Expect After V-line Surgery?

  • You will need to spend one night at the hospital to monitor your recovery. 
  • You will wear a compressing garment to ensure the reshaped bones remain in position.
  • The first week after the surgery, your face will be swollen and feel discomfort. But your doctor will prescribe medication to manage the pain.
  • After the first week, the swelling will reduce. And after 7 - 10 days you can return to work and daily routine. 
  • Follow up with your doctor to track your recovery progress.
  • You can expect to experience full recovery after 3 -4 weeks.  

Things You Should Consider Before V line surgery. 

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take in anything alcoholic before surgery.
  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.

    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.
