What is Jawline Contouring?

Jawline contouring, also known as V-line or K-pop surgery, has been extremely popular in Asian countries for years before emerging as a trend in the U.S.

The term “K-Pop” surgery came from its popularity in Korea as it exemplifies the jawline of many prominent Korean pop stars. The jaw can be wide in the back near the angle, in the front near the chin, or both. The masseter muscle can also cause the back of the jaw to enlarge towards the back of the jawline.

This can be addressed with botox performed every three to four months to shrink the muscle. It is often the case, however, that the actual bone structure of the jaw is wide, leaving surgery as the best option.

How Do You Contour the Jawline?

To perform mandible contouring, incisions are made inside the mouth to gain access to the bone. From there, the bone can be reshaped by rasping or making cuts in the bone to narrow the contour.

In rasping, a special instrument similar to a powered nail file is used through those incisions to precisely sculpt the bone. When cuts to the bone are needed, the amount of bone to be removed in preplanned based on measurements on a preoperative CT scan to ensure that the procedure is done safely without damage to nerves or blood vessels. Sometimes titanium plates and screws are needed to keep the bone in place once it is in the proper position. At our offices for plastic surgery in Austin and Dallas jawline contouring is just as much an art as it is a science. The right eye to determine the ideal degree of narrowing and shape of the jaw is essential when considering who to perform your jawline contouring surgery.

Jawline Contouring Candidates

Jawline contouring surgery is suitable for individuals seeking to enhance their jawline and achieve facial balance and symmetry.

Common issues that can be addressed include sagging or loose skin, a weak jawline, excess fat deposits, or an uneven or asymmetrical jawline. However, eligibility for the procedure is determined on a case-by-case basis, considering factors such as age, overall health, allergies, and specific medical conditions. During a consultation at Saxon MD, our skilled medical professionals will evaluate your specific circumstances and discuss your desired outcomes, taking into account any contraindications or disqualifications. They will provide personalized recommendations and alternative treatment options if necessary.

To determine your eligibility for Austin or Dallas jawline contouring surgery, it is important to schedule a consultation with a qualified surgeon. They will assess your personal needs and goals, review your medical history, and discuss any potential contraindications. By being open and transparent during the consultation and providing accurate information about your health and previous surgeries, you can ensure a safe and effective treatment plan tailored to your specific situation.

Recovery After Jawline Contouring

What is Recovery Like After Jawline Contouring?

The incisions in the mouth are closed with dissolving sutures.

It is our goal that you experience the best jawline contouring Austin and Dallas have to offer. While healing, instructions are given to use a special mouthwash to keep bacteria from collecting in the crevices of the mouth. You will be able to brush your teeth as soon as you are comfortable. There is considerable swelling after this procedure mostly from enlargement of the masseter muscle along the edge of the jaw.

For this reason, final results aren’t realized for at least 3 months and can continue to improve afterwards. A compressive dressing to give support to the chin and jaw is kept on at all times for one week and while at home afterward for an additional one to two weeks.

Will I Have Loose Skin After Jawline Contouring Since the Bone is Smaller?

Since the jaw bone (mandible) is significantly smaller after surgery, sometime skin tightening is needed. Depending on the degree of laxity, a neck lift or FaceTite may be needed. These procedures can also be done at the same time as Austin or Dallas jawline contouring to ensure your jawline is smooth and defined once it has healed.

What Other Options Do I Have to Make the Bottom Half of My Face Smaller?

There is sometimes fullness to the lower half of the face even when the jaw bone isn’t very wide. One thing that can be causing this is the muscle attached to the bone called the masseter.

In this situation, neuromodulators, like botox, can be injected into the muscle to shrink the fibers resulting in a narrower angle of the jaw. If you feel like you have chubby cheeks rather than a large jaw then the buccal fat pad can be removed to narrow the face. Masseter botox and buccal fat removal can be done at the same time as jawline contouring to address these issues.

Jawline Contouring Packages

Slim and Sculpt

Narrow and tighten the lower half of the face with this comprehensive package. This package is ideal for those who already have a narrow jaw but want to slim the lower half of the face while maintaining or adding definition.


This combination treatment maximally reshapes the jaw bone and tightens the skin around it to prevent postoperative jowling.


Do you want to create a wider, more defined jaw angle? This package first tightens the skin around the jawline with radiofrequency energy. After this is done, Radiesse (calcium hydroxyapatite filler) is injected between the chin, the angle of the jaw, and any other area that has a deficiency.
