Who makes the best candidate for facial feminization with mandible contouring?
If you feel that your jaw and chin are giving your face an undesirably masculine appearance, mandible contouring might be an ideal procedure for your aesthetic goals. Our team require that you be a non-smoker in good health, both psychologically and physiologically, and that you have reasonable expectations for your final results based on your Bay Area consultation.
What does recovery from jaw contouring involve?
Your surgeon will place a bandage after surgery to help reduce swelling and keep your new jaw shape intact. You will face some extended swelling and bruising for at least 2-4 weeks. The shape of your new jaw will be most visible at around 3 months, but final results will not be apparent until 1 year post op. For the first month after surgery, you will need to eat soft foods such as soups and puddings, and you will need to limit your physical activities. Our surgical team will ensure you are kept comfortable at all times through prescription pain medication, and we will also furnish you with antibiotics to help prevent post-operative infection.
What fees are there for mandible contouring?
The cost for mandible contouring will change according to the surgical approach chosen and how much work is required to meet your goal. Other factors include anesthesia, the facility fees and the surgeon’s fees. Dr. Satterwhite, Dr. Pang, and Dr. Gurjala will make sure you leave your initial consultation in San Francisco with a detailed, personalized quote so you can move forward feeling informed and empowered.
