This is where you can have the best V Line surgery in South Korea.

Everybody has heard of the V line surgery, or aka facial contouring or aka chin reduction + genioplasty. It is a procedure sought after by many women to create a more symmetrical facial line. This procedure has been around for years and as more and more plastic surgery clinics pop up around the world, this means a number of patients will be getting this done by surgeons who have little to no experience on v line procedures.

Korea is probably the country where the v line surgery is carried the most and even so there are many inexperienced surgeons that produce botched results. This can range anywhere from an uneven face, to sagging skin to numbness on the face. This is why choosing a surgeon that has a lot of experience should be a top priority, not a clinic that gives huge discounts.

There are 2 different types of the v line surgery / procedures at Regen Plastic Surgery.

V line

The V line procedure is basically a jaw reduction and a T/V osteotomy performed at the same time. The amount of bone that is cut depends on how big the jaw bone / chin bone is. The jaw bone is cut from the bottom and the chin bone is cut in a T or an inverted V Osteotomy procedure. Pins are then placed on the chin to hold the bone in place during recovery which takes around a year.

Regen’s One-piece V line

This is similar to a v line procedure except a slight chin reduction is performed instead of an T/V osteotomy with pin placement. Because the bone from the base of the ear to the front jaw is cut in one piece, recovery is faster than normal v-line surgery, and although there is not much difference in the front jaw, the face looks slender even when viewed from the front.
