The male jaw is typically wider and taller than the female jaw. Men's jawlines are wider and heavier-set, with a flatter base and a sharper angle between the chin and jaw. This gives the male jawline a distinct "square" appearance. Women's jawlines are typically rounded, tapered, and pointed.
Many of Iranian Surgery patients who are considering facial confirmation surgery to feminize the face mistakenly believe they require "Asian" V-Line surgery for the jaw when, in fact, feminizing jaw surgery — also known as FFS-specific jaw contouring or jaw tapering — is required.
V-Line jaw surgery typically works to narrow and bring the jawline forward. This procedure is typically recommended for women with an overly-square jawline who want a more feminine, streamlined appearance to the jaw and chin. This strategy, however, does not work to feminize a male face because a male face is typically taller or longer, so a V-Line procedure would only make the face appear more elongated. In the case of a male transitioning into a female, jaw contouring surgery to shape the jaw into a more feminine aspect, as well as a vertical reduction genioplasty, are both required (shortening the height of the chin). In comparison, a V-Line procedure commonly should not reduce the vertical height of the chin as that would run counter to the intended appearance.
If the face to be feminized is overly long, a condition that is known as vertical maxillary excess or “long face syndrome”, we may also recommend surgical correction via a jaw surgery procedure known as the Le Fort Osteotomy I.
