Rotational Bone Cutting Surgery

돌려깎기 이미지

Rotational Bone Cutting Surgery is a surgical procedure to shape and resect the overall jawbone, not only to reduce the size of one’s square jaw, but also the chin to achieve well-defined V-line. This is recommended for those with square jaw with long or wide front chin. It is an extended surgery from ‘Long-curve square jaw reduction using a special mirror’, developed by BK Plastic Surgery Hospital to lengthen the resection from the jaw to front chin

Advantages of Rotational Bone Cutting Surgery

V-line with smaller face can be achieved whereas mere Square Jaw Reduction can only define the facial line seen from the sides.

Multiple improvements can be expected – from square jaw, long chin to asymmetric facial line – at once.
