Male mandibles usually have more bone volume and
the muscles which operate the mandible are stronger and more pronounced.
They are also generally more angular from ear to
the chin, whereas female mandibles generally have less bone volume and smaller muscles and have more curvature from the ear to the chin. The female face is generally more rounded than the angular
Remodeling the mandible to more natal female
proportions can create subtle, but significant differences in gender perception. The objective is to create a more rounded appearance by reducing sharp angles and in reduction of size of the Masseter
muscles when indicated.
The procedure is usually undertaken as an element
of additional FGAS procedures and harmonized with chin surgery to create a smoother and more rounded appearance. All incisions are intraoral leaving no visible scar and the remodeling is undertaken
using a range of instruments and oscillating tools specific to bone shaping.
