Performing Of The Procedure

The surgery is done according to the needs of the person and may incorporate other cosmetic surgery procedures like bone trimming.
During surgery, most incisions are done from the mouth and between the gum or cheek mucosa. Hence, the surgeon has access to various regions in the face like a jawbone. This enables hiding of the resulting scar.
In most cases the surgery takes around 2.5 hours to 5 hours; this depends on the work being done. Also, hospitalization may be done which takes a few days, for close monitoring of the patient.
