Upper jaw bone is known as the maxilla, while the lower jaw bone is called the mandible. For the mandible and its main muscle, the masseter, are the primary anatomic factors determining the width and shape of the lower called the “jaw line.”
Some Asian women prefer a more slender jaw profile to a stronger square or flared contour that might feel out of proportion to other more delicate facial features. Slimming does soften the facial contour and cam make the neck appear slightly longer. Some women feel a square jawline makes them appear less feminine, although this argument is flawed. There are countless beautiful women with extremely square jaws and many handsome men with highly angled jaw. Jawline reduction can be undertaken using either permanent surgical or temporary non-surgical methods.
Surgical reduction of the mandibular angle is particularly effective in changing a square –shaped face into one with a more oval contour.
A dimple surgery is a procedure to create dimples to help them have a great looking smile. The surgery is performed on the inside of the cheek and there are no scars or incisions on the outside skin with local with or without sedation. Dr. Choi measures patient’s face to find the area where naturally occurring dimples would be, by measuring the corner of the eye down, then the intersecting point from the mouth which is about 2-3 centimeters.

Ear Cosmetic Surgery
Ear Surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is a procedure which sets prominent ears back, closer to the head, or reduces the size of large ears. This surgery can be performed on children as early as the age of 5. We also offer earlobe repair for stretched out or torn earlobes, which is accomplished by removing the skin cleft that resides between the two sides that are split. A new lobe is reconstructed using sutures that are placed in both the front and back of the ear.
This ear surgery is often done on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia or local with IV sedation.
