V-line is a specialized cosmetic procedure that combines chin surgery to achieve a slimmer chin, and jaw surgery to create a more feminine jawline.
It’s commonly requested by women of Asian descent who wish to soften the lower portion of their face to achieve a more beautiful and balanced overall look.
An Overview of V-Line
To prepare for among the best v-line Beverly Hills has to offer, Dr. Lee will spend a substantial amount of time with you, evaluating your anatomy and how it relates to your chin and jaw. She will then work closely with you to compose a custom surgical plan designed to contour your chin and jaw, while achieving an extremely natural outcome. In working with ethnic patients, Dr. Lee is careful to ensure the cosmetic result doesn’t necessarily strip away all traces of your ethnic identity, but rather refines it to create a more harmonious and beautiful overall look.
To perform your actual surgery, Dr. Lee will begin by administering general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. From there, she will make a number of precise incisions inside the mouth, between the gum and the cheek so she can access the jawbone. Through those openings, she will shape and contour the jaw to achieve the soft and feminine look you desire. Once your ideal jawline has been achieved, Dr. Lee will close the incisions with dissolvable sutures and begin contouring your chin. For this portion of the surgery, Dr. Lee will make an incision in the front of the mouth, on the gum line. Through that opening, she will reshape the bone and tissue to achieve a softer and less pronounced chin. She will then close the incision with dissolvable sutures and place bandages to minimize swelling and ensure an optimal surgical outcome.

What to expect during recovery
Immediately after your v-line surgery, you can expect to experience swelling and bruising in the treatment area, though it will peak within two days and subside within two weeks. As you heal, you’ll be advised to avoid strenuous activity and adopt a temporary soft food diet to prevent irritating the area. In most cases, you are able to resume work and your daily routine within one week, though Dr. Lee will provide you with more personalized guidance during your post-operative appointments.
