An Elegant Facial Profile Is Possible

Aging and genetics are two major reasons patients cite for dissatisfaction with their jawlines. As we age, our skin and muscles loosen in the face and neck to create jowls, neck banding, and for some, the dreaded turkey neck. Others of us simply inherited a weak jawline. Thankfully today there are cosmetic procedures that help patients look their best.

What Is Jawline Contouring?

Jawline contouring is the shaping of one’s jawline through surgical or injectable methods. Each method has its own strengths, and requires a facial specialist with experience and discernment to determine which is appropriate for you. During your consultation, Dr. Robb will assess your facial structure and listen to your aesthetic preferences to decide which modality will yield the best results.

Jawline Contouring Via Facelift

Ostensibly for reducing visible signs of aging and rejuvenating the face, a well-done facelift also lifts and sharpens the jawline. Dr. Robb performs a “Deep Plane” facelift which allows for more precise manipulation of facial tissue. This type of facelift often yields more symmetrical facial proportions and enhances your jawline significantly. A facelift is the most complete facial correction possible, and requires a dedicated recovery period. 

Chin Augmentation With Implant

This form of chin contouring utilizes implants to shape the lower face. Dr. Robb can reduce the size of your jawbone or add to it with a medical-grade, soft implant. Both result in a natural look and feel that last a lifetime, though implants can be surgically removed later if desired. Dr. Robb chooses the shape and size of the implant based on the patient’s aesthetic goals and facial structure. Recovery time is needed for this procedure.

Facial Fat Transfer To Sculpt The Jaw

Like dermal fillers, fat grafting can restore facial volume lost as a result of aging. Using modern liposuction techniques, excess fat is harvested from another area of the body, such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. The fat is then cleaned and purified before being used to add shape and definition to the chin or jaw. Since the fat is taken from your body, there is no chance of rejection. Facial fat transfers are great for achieving a natural look and feel, and the results are long-lasting. 

Submental Liposuction For A Sleek Profile

This minimally invasive liposuction procedure eradicates fat from under the chin and reduces the appearance of the dreaded double chin. Submental fat accumulation can make the jawline and neck appear heavy and ill-defined. Once the fat is removed, the jawline’s natural contour will be more evident. Submental liposuction is a quick procedure with very little recovery time needed.

Dermal Fillers To Define and Shape

Dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, and Radiesse are very effective for molding and defining the chin and jawline. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers add volume and can help reshape the jawline without surgery while stimulating the body to naturally produce more collagen (necessary for skin firmness). Dermal fillers require no downtime, but because fillers are temporary, jawline contouring with this method requires regular maintenance.
