Jawline Contouring

In Long Island


Jawline Contouring

A defined and prominent jawline is probably one of the most important aspects of your face. A saggy jawline can negatively impact your appearance, which can also impact your self-confidence. The good news is there are ways to turn back the clock on your appearance, including a sagging jawline, to restore your youthful vibrancy. Jawline contouring is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping and defining the jawline to create a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing appearance. The goal of jawline contouring is to enhance the natural contours of the face and create a more balanced and proportionate appearance.

Dr. Cohn routinely sees Jawline Contouring patients from all over Nassau County, Suffolk County, Long Island, and even from Manhattan. His boutique office is located in Smithtown, New York, making it a convenient destination for any Jawline Contouring patients on the North Shore.

Jawline Basics

What is Jawline Contouring?

Jawline contouring in Long Island is a surgical procedure that reshapes the jaw bone to improve the appearance of the jawline. The procedure is also known as V-line surgery, as it creates a V-shaped jawline that is more defined and angular.

During the surgery, Dr. Cohn will carefully remove excess bone from the jaw and chin to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape. The procedure can also involve removing or adding volume to the jawline, depending on your specific needs.

If necessary, Dr. Cohn may also use implants or fillers to add volume to the jawline, tailoring the procedure to each patient’s unique needs.

Who are the best candidates for the Jawline Contouring procedure?

Good candidates for jaw contouring surgery include patients who are unhappy with the shape or size of their jawline and are in good overall health. The procedure is suitable for both men and women and can be performed on patients of any age. Good candidates for this procedure typically have a weak or ill-defined jawline, an asymmetrical jaw, or an overly prominent jawline that detracts from their facial balance.

The first step to getting Jawline Contouring in Long Island is to book a consultation with Dr. Cohn. Our patient coordinators are ready to help you and get you started on your journey. By scheduling a consultation, you will get to meet Dr. Cohn, learn more about what Jawline Contouring involves, and decide whether this is the right procedure for you. 

Prior to the day of your surgery, Dr. Cohn may ask you to fast for a certain amount of time or abstain from certain types of medication.

What to expect on the day of Jawline Contouring surgery

On the day of your procedure, Dr. Cohn will walk you through his surgical steps, based on your consultation where he mapped out your treatment and took photos of your bone structure. 

The first step is to administer anesthesia to numb the area. Jawline Contouring is usually performed using general anesthesia. 

The next step is where Dr. Cohn makes an incision inside the mouth to access the jaw bone. 

Using specialized surgical tools, he will then carefully remove any excess bone from the jaw and chin, sculpting the remaining bone to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape.

Following the surgery, the incisions are closed with sutures, and the patient is closely monitored in a recovery room to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery.

Jawline Contouring surgery can take several hours to complete. We strongly advise arranging transport to and from our clinic on the day of your procedure.

Jawline Contouring recovery

Before you leave our clinic, Dr. Cohn and his team will ensure you have all the information necessary for a smooth recovery at home. 

After jawline contouring surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. While these symptoms are temporary and generally subside within a few weeks, patients can manage their discomfort with pain medication and by applying cold compresses to the affected area.

Following Dr. Cohn’s post-operative instructions are important to ensure a smooth and successful recovery. We advise patients to take at least a week off from work or school to allow their bodies time to heal. You should also avoid strenuous activities and contact sports for several weeks after the surgery to reduce the risk of complications.
