Curious about the difference between double jaw surgery and facial contouring surgery?

That is one of the most frequently asked questions, so here is detailed explanation!

Orthognathic surgery

Orthognathic surgery 

Orthognathic surgery, also known as double jaw surgery surgically corrects the upper and lower jaws and adjusts them in the correct position. The procedure is suitable for conditions including mandibular prognathism, mouth protrusion, facial asymmetry, and other abnormal positioning of the jaw.



Traditionally, braces were required to be worn 1 to 1.5 years prior to surgery. The double Jaw surgery method originating from ID Hospital, Surgery-First Approach Orthognathic surgery is an innovative procedure that has shortened the whole surgery time by eliminating the braces prior to surgery. After the surgery, a wafer is worn for one month followed by braces. Usually, depending on the cases, braces are required after the surgery to re-align the bite.

Orthognathic surgery Before and After 

There are many types of orthognathic surgery, so the right type of surgery is determined during consultation, after X-ray and 3D CT scans, to make a customized surgical plan.


Facial contouring surgery (V-line surgery)



Facial Contouring surgery (V-line surgery)
                   
V-line surgery, also known as jaw reduction surgery, actually includes two types of surgeries. Jaw reduction is done to reduce the size of the jaw bone (mandible angle) and a chin genioplasty surgery is done to reduce or extend the chin bone. 


Just like the orthognathic surgery, there are different types of methods for the V-line surgery, and osteotomy methods differ. Dia-osteotomy, T-osteotomy, etc. are recommended by the surgeon upon reviewing a patient’s X-rays. The golden ratio is used to determine the ideal proportion for a patient’s face.


Important things to keep in mind before going for any types of facial bone surgeries:

1. Experience level of the surgeon is important, so selection of the surgeon is vital and can make all the difference in the type of results you get.
2. The safety level of the facilities you select to have your surgery at.
4. Managing the surgery results, by following all the instructions given, and exercising the jaw to help it heal faster

Malaysian girl experiencing 'RHINOPLASTY' in Korea at ID Hospital!

↑Cherrie, after rhinoplasty

It's been nearly 1 year since Cherrie had rhinoplasty at our hospital.
She had fillers before in the bridge of her nose and wanted to have that nose permanently. So she got the fillers removed and our doctors replaced it with an implant! She also received alar-base reduction and look at her now! Her nose looks so natural and perfect!

New lease on life: orthognathic and facial contouring surgery review






Nationality: Korean 
Desired Surgery : Eyes, nose
Surgery performed: Orthognathic surgery, V-line facial contouring surgery



Before Surgery

I was born with severe facial asymmetry and had an under bite, so I grew up feeling very self-conscious about my looks. I was very glad when I found ID Hospital, and resolved to finally change my looks for the better. I had functional and aesthetic concerns, which were well addressed by my surgeon and I was recommended both the orthognathic surgery also known as the double jaw surgery, and facial contouring surgery known as V-line surgery. 



3 weeks post-surgery

Just after the surgery, I had a lot of bruising and swelling, so I had to do a lot of things to help reduce the swelling faster. I had pumpkin juice and walked a lot. I could only have liquids for some days after surgery, so I had a lot of warm soups and smoothies. I thought the swelling would stay for long, at least 3 months, but I am very happy with my 3 weeks post-surgery progress.


5 months post-surgery

From 3 months after surgery onward, my looks changed completely. From then on, daily, my face gets smaller and smaller as the minor swelling reduces. I did not imagine that the Orthognathic surgery and the facial contouring surgery would change me this way. I am still amazed every time I see my reflection in the mirror. 


9 months post-surgery

My confidence level has increased so much!  I keep getting compliments all the time, so that motivated me to join the gym and get working on my body! I feel great and look forward to life with a great outlook. ID Hospital is really the best when it comes to orthognathic and facial contouring surgeries

Thank you, ID Hospital, for giving me a new life!~

Double Eyelids and Rhinoplasty surgeries at ID Hospital : Review




Nationality: Korean 
Desired Surgery : Eyes, nose
Surgery performed: Skinny Incision Double Eyelid surgery, Soft-Mesh Rhinoplasty 

I was always concerned with how low my nose bridge is, and I got fillers but I did not see much improvement. So I decided to go ahead and have rhinoplasty surgery! While I made the decision to have rhinoplasty, I also decided to go ahead and have double eyelid surgery too. I already had a line line, but I wanted thicker double eyelids, I wanted to have beautiful eyes!~

I decided to go for the surgery during the holidays~




2 months post-surgery

It has been 2 months since I have had surgery, not only am I extremely happy with the results, but everyone loves it. Everyone keeps asking me where did I get my double eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty done, and of course, I tell them it's ID Hospital! Everyone who knew me before the surgery say they barely recognize me, that I am a totally different person, and that makes me happy!



4 months post-surgery

Every photo I take is perfect from any angle! I totally am loving my surgery results, and as time goes, the minor swelling reduces and I still keep seeing progress. The best part about the soft-mesh rhinoplasty is the ability to move my nose around. With traditional rhinoplasty surgeries, people cannot move their nose around and that is usually an indicator that they had surgery. But this surgery is completely different, my nose looks natural and moves around naturally too!



7 months post-surgery

It has been 7 months already and I can barely remember what my old face looked like. I never imagined that a face can change so much with just 2 simple surgeries like Skinny Incision Double Eyelid surgerySoft-Mesh Rhinoplasty, but these surgeries have changed my life forever. I get compliments daily, and get compared to celebrities often. 
I have recommended ID Hospital to all my family and friends, since I am so satisfied with my surgery results.

Anesthesia: Surgery and Post-care

Anesthesia is used to induce a temporary state of unconsciousness, to have a surgical procedure without feeling any pain. 


There are 2 main types of anesthesia used by ID Hospital for surgeries.

General anesthesia: suppresses central nervous system activity and results in unconsciousness and total lack of sensation. This is used for facial bone surgeries, some lifting surgeries and breast augmentation.

Local anesthesia with sedation: blocks transmission of nerve impulses between a targeted part of the body and the central nervous system, causing loss of sensation in the targeted body part. Sedation is administered at the same time to put the patient in a temporary state of unconsciousness. This is used for surgeries which do not require general anesthesia.

The type of anesthesia required by the patient is evaluated by ID Hospital’s board-certified anesthesiologistsThey assess the patient’s condition to select the appropriate anesthesia drug for safe surgery.

Stationed 24 hours and be responsible for our patients’ safety
id Hospital’s Safe Anesthesia System

For the safety of our patients, our board-certified anesthesiologists stay with patients throughout the entire surgery process, from before surgery to full recovery after surgery. Moreover, with our high-tech equipment that can monitor patients’ condition, we provide safe environment throughout the entire surgery process with a thorough safety control.




Safe Surgery Management

Prior to entering the surgery room, we use air shower system used in university hospitals for sterilization up to 99.9%. Using a central control system, we check all patients’ condition multiple times during surgery to ensure the patient will have a safe surgery.

Patients usually get nervous or afraid before surgery, so ID Hospital uses anesthesia preparation room for such people. In the room, patients meet their anesthesia specialists and nurses for their surgery, and they go to sleep after everything is prepared.


Post-surgery, the patient is moved to a recovery room and then to the ward. If the patient has undergone general anesthesia, they are instructed not to fall asleep or drink water for 6 hours, until the effects of the anesthesia are gone. 

Post-surgery instructions are given and a translator will go over the instructions with you, about the following:

1.      The medication, and the cleaning process for the surgical area
2.      The level of activity allowed and what is not allowed
3.      What types of foods to eat
If you are not sure about any of the information given, ask questions and do not leave without making sure you understood all the instructions.
