Crafting Your Ideal Look with Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS

Jaw augmentation—which can sometimes involve the placement of artificial implants—is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves adding synthetic materials or natural tissue to the jawline to enhance its definition and improve the overall appearance of your face. The implants are typically made of silicone or other biocompatible materials and are inserted through small incisions made inside the mouth, enabling Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS to utilize his keenly developed artistic eye to sculpt a more pleasing facial appearance.

Should you feel as though your jaw and/or chin are overly large or too prominent, however, jaw reduction might be ideal for you. This procedure involves removing a portion of the bone from your jaw to make it less prominent and is often performed on patients who have an overly large or wide jaw that may cause discomfort or a disproportionate appearance. If you’d like to learn more about how Dr. Rogers can help you enjoy a jaw that more appropriately frames your face, reach out to our Beverly Hills office and set up your initial consultation today.

Should I Consider Jaw Implants or Reduction?

If you are struggling with loss of facial structure due to age, injury, or disease—or are simply interested in improving the features and contours of your face—jaw implants can correct and strengthen your jawline, restoring a youthful balance to your whole face. A patient who has a heavy, overly-squared, or outwardly flaring mandible (which can diminish the more delicate features of the face) will commonly request a jawbone reduction, on the other hand.

Your Jaw Enhancement Experience

Both jaw implants and jaw reduction procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia. This means that you will be fully asleep and will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

The duration of a jaw implant or reduction procedure can vary depending on the specific technique used and the complexity of the individual case. In general, the procedure typically takes between one to three hours to complete.

Once your procedure is complete, you’ll spend a bit of time in our recovery area before being able to head home and begin the recovery process. You will need a friend to drive you home, however, as the anesthesia will still be wearing off.

Your Rest, Recovery, and Results

Most patients can return to work and resume their normal activities within 10 to 14 days after the procedure, but the final results may take several weeks to fully develop. You may need to avoid solid foods and stick to a soft or liquid diet for a few days. Dr. Rogers will give you clear aftercare instructions and a detailed timeline that explains what you can expect from the recovery experience. He’ll also schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing nicely.
