Having the perfect jawline has become very popular these days and many are considering various options to reshape and refine their jawline. There are many ways that can help you get the jawline you want, including contouring exercises, dermal fillers, skin tightening procedures, neck liposuction, buccal fat removal, chin augmentation, and laser skin resurfacing. But the most important step for achieving the perfect jawline is to seek the advice of a professional like Dr. Thomas Walker.
But before you schedule an appointment, let’s take a look at some of the options you have for contouring and sculpting your jawline.
Options for Sculpting Your Jawline
There are a variety of procedures and solutions to help you achieve the jawline of your dreams, including:
Fillers are a great way to camouflage sagging jowls and create volume along the jawline for a fresher and more youthful appearance. There are a variety of fillers available that can be used to enhance the jawline and restore volume loss. Fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse are the most commonly used. Fillers are a great option because they can be injected directly into the area and require minimal to no downtime.
Neuromodulators, such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Daxxify, or Jeuveau can be used to help shape the face and jawline in patients with a strong masseter chewing muscle. Neuromodulators are a great non-surgical option and can be tailored to your needs with results that can last up to 6 months depending on the neuromodulater.
Radiofrequency (RF) treatments such as Infini RF microneedling and truSculpt are excellent for making minor adjustments to the jawline. These treatments help tighten the skin, and the heat energy stimulates collagen production to help create a more defined jawline. These treatments are non-surgical, require minimal to no downtime, and the results can last for several months.
Kybella is another popular option to help achieve a more defined jawline. When the solution is injected under the chin, it eliminates the fat cells there. The whole process takes about 15-20 minutes and results typically take about four to six weeks after your final treatment. Typically, at least 2 treatments are needed to eliminate the fat under the chin.
With neck liposuction, Dr. Walker can remove unwanted fat from the neck and jawline area to give you a more sculpted appearance. This can help reduce jowls and a double chin and can be performed along with a neck lift. Recovery takes about 1-2 weeks though it may take up to four weeks for the swelling and bruising to completely disappear.
Chin augmentation is another option to make your jawline more defined. It can be done using fillers but chin implants are available as well. During the procedure, a silicone implant is placed in a pocket onto the jawline where it is secured. Recovery from a chin implant procedure takes about a week or two. Results can take a month or more to be fully noticeable.
Facelift & Neck Lift
A facelift and neck lift can be an option to not only refine and redefine the jawline but also to improve the appearance of the entire face for a dramatic, yet natural looking transformation. This surgical procedure can help to improve age-related signs like sagging and wrinkles as well as jowls or an undefined jawline. A facelift will require more recovery time but will provide more dramatic and long-lasting results.
