Abstract: This paper reports on the case of a Western female patient with square jaw and low mandibular angle deformity who sought treatment for aesthetic facial enhancement. While face-narrowing surgical procedures are especially popular among Asian women, there seems to be a general, cross-cultural agreement that a beautiful female face should be oval and slender. Under general anesthesia, intra-oral incisions were performed bilaterally to approach the mandibular angles. After periosteal elevation, bilateral corticectomies of the mandibular rami and "V" ostectomies of the mandibular base were executed. Postoperative recovery was uneventful. Six months after surgery, the patient's face was not only rounder and gentler in the frontal view, but also showed an evident increase of the gonial angles in the profile and three-quarter views.
