What is Jaw Filler and How is it Done?

Jaw filler is one of the most commonly preferred medical aesthetic procedures by both women and men who desire an aesthetic jawline. It is particularly used to correct unevenness, asymmetry, and hollow structures in the jaw. One of the biggest influences on how the face looks is the shape of the jawline. Jaw filler is applied to treat problems such as the jaw being more recessed or protruded than normal, jawline indistinctiveness, and shape irregularities.

During jaw filler procedures, special filler substances are injected directly into the jawline. This ensures that the desired shape harmonizes perfectly with the facial features of the patient. This method is applied only for complaints that can be corrected using filler injections. After identifying the structural irregularity accurately during the examination, the area of injection on the jaw is determined. Prior to the treatment performed using acid-based filler substances, a cream with a local anesthetic effect is applied. Since the procedure is completed within a range of 15-30 minutes, it is practical.

After achieving the desired results, the durability of the acid-based filler substances used varies between 12-18 months. To ensure the longevity of jaw filler, it’s important to avoid exposure to harmful sunlight. Sunscreen creams can be used at this point. Regularly moisturizing the skin and increasing water intake are also important. The acid-based substances injected under the skin for jaw filler are absorbed over time and begin to fade. At this stage, it is possible to perform refills according to the patient’s preference.

Since it doesn’t require any surgical procedure, it is applied in a practical manner. It enables making aesthetic changes that perfectly match with the existing jawline and facial features of the patient. As the jawline gradually settles and gains prominence over time, the patient’s face also achieves a much younger appearance.

What Should Be Done After Jaw Surgery Operation?

Leakage-like bleeding may be observed in the first 24 hours after jaw surgery operations. It is not recommended to rinse or spit for 48 hours after the operation.

Consumption of very hot or very cold beverages is not recommended after jaw surgery operations. Aspirin and similar blood thinners should be discontinued prior to the operation as they may increase bleeding in the area. Additionally, numbness due to anesthesia begins to fade within 3 hours after the operation. Therefore, it is not recommended to eat or drink anything before the numbness completely disappears, as it may unknowingly burn or harm the lips. Finally, brushing teeth in the first 24 hours after jaw surgery is not advisable as it may cause bleeding.
