BEFORE & AFTERS
What Is Jawline Contouring?
Jawline contouring procedures are designed to address genetic conditions and signs of aging that cause the chin area to lack definition. Common reasons patients choose to have jawline contouring treatment include:
- A double chin
- Loss of jawline volume
Fortunately, Dr. Lao offers surgical and non-surgical solutions to redefine the chin and create the aesthetic profile you desire.
Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring with Fillers
For patients who want to restore a youthful jawline without the inconvenience of a recovery period, non-surgical jawline contouring with fillers can be a great option. Dermal fillers can be injected by Dr. Lao to improve jawline definition by adding volume to hollow areas. This sculpts the chin to best complement your facial features.
Dr. Lao often recommends hyaluronic-acid-based fillers Juvederm and Restylane for jawline contouring. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are very popular for a variety of facial enhancements, including jawline contouring. Patients love that their results are immediate and can last up to a year.
Neuromodulators for Non-Surgical Jawline Contouring
If your jawline contouring goals include achieving a slimmer, more oval-shaped jawline, Dr. Lao may recommend an injectable neuromodulator like Botox. Botox can be injected to block nerve signals to the masseter muscle, which is the muscle involved with chewing. An overused masseter muscle can give the jaw a square shape that disrupts facial harmony.
Botox works to reduce masseter muscle activity, which causes the muscle to decrease in size. The result is a more proportionate, refined jawline.
Botox results can be noticeable within three days of your appointment, though it may take up to two weeks for full results to appear. Generally, you can maintain your desired look with Botox by having this non-surgical treatment every three to six months.
Submental Liposuction for Jawline Contouring
For patients who prefer a one-time treatment, Dr. Lao can perform surgical jawline contouring with submental liposuction. Submental liposuction is an effective way for patients with healthy skin elasticity to eliminate a double chin and improve facial contours for long-lasting results.
Your submental lipo surgery will begin with anesthesia. Then, one or two small incisions will be made either behind the ears or under the chin. A liposuction cannula will be used to extract excess fat from the area to reshape the jawline.
Surgical jawline contouring with lipo requires some downtime to promote healing and optimal results. Dr. Lao may have you wear a specialized chin strap for the first few days after your surgery. Any post-operative swelling and bruising will subside within a week or two.
Dr. Lao will keep track of your recovery progress and advise you when you are able to resume your normal routine and activity level. Most patients are approved to return to work within a week of surgery.
How Much Does Jawline Contouring Cost?
The cost of jawline contouring depends on your specific treatment plan. Non-surgical jawline contouring pricing varies based on how many injections are needed at each appointment to achieve and maintain your results. The price of surgical jawline contouring is affected by the extent of your procedure and whether you choose to combine it with additional treatments.
