Mandible reduction, also known as mandible angle resection, creates a more beautiful and balanced overall look by softening the lower part of the face.
This surgery generally needs to be performed with genioplasty (slimming down the chin) for better proportions. Carving the mandible area doesn’t mean that the appearance becomes softer and more feminine. Rather, bone contouring surgery finds the ideal proportions in harmony with the whole face, by evaluating one’s anatomy from all angles.
CDU Mandible Reduction
1. Beautiful at any angle: mandible reduction + Sagittal splitting ostectomy
As the facial bone structure is three-dimensional, bone surgery should consider the appearance from various angles. If reduction is performed based on a two-dimensional concept, the result will not be effective from other angles.
2. Analyzing multiple causes of an undefined and wider face: bone, muscle, fat, and skin
CDU’s bone contouring surgery provides a customized surgery plan with an understanding of the proportion of the whole face and the condition of bone, muscles, and surrounding tissues through three-dimensional analyzing equipment.
3. No secondary step-off irregularities
CDU minimizes the possibility of an irregular contour by applying a delicate long-curve cutting method.
