The jawline is an important element of a person’s appearance. Whether you desire a more symmetrical jawline, a more defined chin or a slimmer facial appearance, there is a jawline fix that can help you achieve your ideal appearance. Both permanent and non-surgical options are available, and Schaffer Plastic Surgery is the place to go for an expert jawline fix.
Surgical Jawline Fixes
Facelifts, neck lifts and chin augmentations can dramatically improve a person’s jawline. Your unique anatomy and goals will help our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Schaffer, decide which procedure (or combination of procedures) is right for you.
Facelifts for Jawline Fixes
When wrinkles, facial volume loss or sagging skin leads to an undefined or asymmetrical jawline, a facelift may be the best fix. A personalized facelift called a mid or mini facelift will address only the lower face. It can correct sagging cheeks and jowls while sharpening the jaw line and addressing wrinkles on the midface. It does not include a neck lift and is therefore recommended for those only wanting to address issues at or above the jaw line.
Neck Lifts for Jawline Fixes
Neck-lift surgeries can help men or women of any age achieve a more gracefully contoured neck, which can add definition to the jawline. For younger people, a neck lift can help remove sagging skin left over from weight loss or debulk fullness in the central neck that causes a double chin. For older people, a neck lift tightens up loose skin and muscles to allow for a more well-defined, contoured appearance.
Chin Augmentations for Jawline Fixes
The chin plays an important role in the overall appearance of the jawline. A small or weak chin can make the neck appear undefined and fleshy and make the nose appear larger in profile. A chin augmentation brings proportion to the chin and promotes symmetry among all facial features. Chin implants are available in different types and sizes and are made of materials that feel like natural tissues. Dr. Schaffer will help choose the right type and size of the implant and will custom fit the implant to your unique facial features.
Non-Surgical Jawline Fixes
Results very similar to those delivered by facelifts, neck lifts and chin augmentations can be achieved with neuromodulator and dermal-filler injections. Neuromodulators like BOTOX® can prevent certain facial muscles from moving. Dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane® or Sculptra® can improve facial volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Each can make the jawline appear more defined and contoured. Jawline fixes through injectables are not permanent, but results can last up to six months.
