Abstract
BACKGROUND: A slender or slim face with narrow facial features is considered esthetically appealing in Asian people. Plastic surgery to obtain an oval face, called a 'V-line,' is popular among young people. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 20 Korean patients were included in this study. The patients underwent mandibular anguloplasty with three-dimensional computer-aided design and manufacturing surgical guides that were accurately fitted to the upper and lower teeth, allowing for precise replication of a virtual surgery during a real surgical procedure. RESULTS: There were no significant complications, including severe bleeding, facial nerve injury, or airway obstruction. All patients were satisfied with the esthetic and functional results, except for one who was neutral toward the result. The mean satisfaction score was 4.75, which was between 'satisfied' and 'very satisfied.' CONCLUSION: The V-line guide and gooseneck saw allowed for safe and fast resection of bone in the mandibular angle area. This technique provides consistent results during surgery as well as minimizing surgical complications.
