How does a jaw angle reduction work?

The jaw angle reduction is performed under general anesthesia. To begin with, incisions are made in the mouth. Because of this there are no scars on the outside. The surgeon then uses a micro-saw via an intra-oral access. To get a nice rounded – and feminine – contour, work is done from front to back. Finally, the wound is closed with soluble sutures.


During your first consultation with the doctor you can indicate what bothers you most and what exactly you want to change. Prior to your interview, photos are made for the medical record and to be discussed with the surgeon during your interview. As a result, he will examine whether you are a suitable candidate and will propose the most suitable treatment for you to feminize the jaw angle. The surgeon also explains what this technique entails and what you can expect as the end result.

In this way you can make a well-informed decision about the desired jaw angle reduction. Furthermore, the surgeon will ask about your health, medical background and possible medication use. If you use blood-thinning medication, you must stop taking this at least a week before the treatment.

During your consultation, the recovery period and any risks and complications will also be discussed with you. After this, your consultation will be summarized in a treatment plan and the total costs of the treatment will be discussed with our consultant. The consultation takes approximately 60 minutes and aims to inform you as clearly and fully as possible about the jaw angle reduction.

What can I expect after the jaw angle reduction?

After the treatment your skin may be red and slightly swollen. However, this is temporary. The incisions in the mouth are closed with dissolving stitches. During healing, instructions are given to use a special mouthwash. This prevents bacteria from collecting in the crevices of the mouth. Once it feels comfortable for you, you can brush your teeth normally.

You can expect definitive results about three months after the procedure. After that it only gets better. Your jaw will be wrapped in bandages for one week. You can return to work after approximately two weeks.
