The G.I. Jaw Procedure

Nowadays the number of men who are candidates for cosmetic procedures has increased. Men are more thinking about enhancement of their facial features, contouring their body shapes, improving their skin quality, and etc.

One of these cosmetic treatments for enhancement of jaw shape is the G.I. Jaw procedure. This procedure is done in order to create a more chiseled and masculine appearance by enhancement of the jawline and chin. Having a sharper jawbone is one of the factors which is known as a hallmark of muscularity. It’s called the “G.I. Jaw®” because appearance is associated with tough, brave soldiers.

According to the statistics of the American Academy of plastic surgeons augmentation of the jaw and all procedures on the jawbone are among the most common aesthetic process. You can not have a more balanced jaw and chin appearance without a cosmetic procedure.

Why Enhance the Jawline with the G.I. Jaw Surgery?

From the time of ancient people having a strong jawline was an advantageous and attractive feature for the opposite sex for mating purposes. Having a stronger jawbone is a sign of higher levels of testosterone hormone. These days the number of men having cosmetic procedures has increased a lot because all days they compare their appearance with other people on social networks like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and ...

This comparison makes them unhappy and unsatisfied with their appearance and due to these reasons, they will be candidates for cosmetic purposes.

Among cosmetic procedures lower face is much more important for having an attractive masculine appearance specifically in these areas:

      • Jaw
      • Chin
      • Submental area beneath the chin

It is known that strengthening the jawbone adds to a man’s sex appeal and overall attractiveness, which can make him feel more confident and appear more fit in society.

What is the G.I. Jaw Procedure?

This type of jaw surgery was invented by doctor Miller who designed it for creating more attractive existing features to make them handsome. This technique is used to outline the jawbone and enhance the other areas of the face that a patient is not satisfied with.

This is done to make a sharper angle for mandibular bone in order to have desired results like a more balanced jawline. During the operation, jaw implants can be used but most of the time it's not necessary. Not having jaw implants makes the recovery timeline shorter.
