Jaw Shaving Procedure
Anyone know of a board certified plastic surgeon who performs jaw shaving procedures? I searched online but could only find one in Los Angeles. Unfortunately I live in Texas and was hoping I could find a surgeon somewhat close to home. Also does anyone know the approximate cost of the procedure? Thanx much!

I know it costs $3,000 overseas (as per a colleague of mine).

I don't have any to personally recommend, but I know you shouldn't have a problem finding a plastic surgeon in the U.S. that does jaw reduction surgery.

If it's any help, jaw shaving is most popular for Asian ethnicities since they tend to have larger jaws (compared to many Caucasians who have the opposite, so they wish to make theirs bigger). So it might help to look for plastic surgeons that are known to specialize in Asian faces. There are a couple around me (and I know they do jaw reduction) but I don't remember their names. :)

Have you looked into Botox jaw reduction? That might be a non-surgical option to consider. I would do that before surgery.
