Severe trauma to the lower jaw, or mandible, can affect both mouth function and the aesthetics of the face. A broken jaw is not only painful but can also alter the teeth and jaw position. This may impact chewing, smiling, talking and other functions. Repairing a damaged mandible often requires reconstructive surgery. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in New York City is an expert in facial reconstruction and plastic surgery. He repairs mandible injuries and restore beauty to the jawline.
Severe damage to the jaw is usually caused by a blunt impact to the face. This impact may occur as a result of an auto accident, sports activity or an act of personal violence, leaving the victim in pain and with alterations to their jaw function and appearance. The jaw is a complex mechanism in the face, requiring precise positioning to function correctly. Dr. Linkov’s extensive knowledge of the intricacies of the facial bones, nerves, muscles and tendons is used to repair the function and recreate a pleasing appearance to the jaw.
Depending on the extent of damage to the mandible, specialized techniques may be needed to restore both form and function. Dr. Linkov uses cutting-edge techniques and methods to ensure his patients with jaw injuries have the highest level of restoration to their jaw movement. He also uses his artistic skills to recreate the aesthetics of the chin and jaw to improve the balance of the facial features.

Dr. Linkov performed submental liposuction on me and I couldn’t be happier with the results! He has amazing bedside manner: he took the time to listen to my concerns and explain them thoroughly; he made sure that I left with no questions. In addition, Dr. Linkov told me that I should expect a subtle change as opposed to something drastic. I love how honest he is about the procedure, unlike some other doctors who advertise drastic change and not delivering them. Even tho Dr. linkov said that the results would be subtle, I am so happy to with the results which really have tightened up the jawline and gave me more definition. I can’t thank Dr. linkov enough!
