Jawline contouring in Newport Beach can be achieved using a number of surgical and non-surgical options. At Batniji Facial Plastic Surgery, we know that a person’s jawline defines their profile. With the help of jawline contouring, we can give patients a well-defined jawline for an improved facial profile.
Jawline Contouring Using Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can provide non-surgical minimally invasive contouring of the jawline without the need for surgery. Injectable Juvederm fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues, restoring volume to areas of the jawline that have lost volume over time.
Fillers last for six months to a year or longer (depending on the chosen filler product), and maintenance treatments are available.
A double chin and excess neck fat can negatively affect one’s facial appearance. To address these and improve the definition and contours of the jawline, neck liposuction can be employed. Liposuction can be used on the neck to remove excess stubborn fat and treat a double chin.
In this procedure, a small incision is made under the chin. A cannula (a thin tube) is inserted into the incision and used to remove fat from the area through medical suction. Finally, the incision is carefully closed. Recovery varies from patient to patient.
Botox Jaw Reduction
A jaw that is overly wide can negatively affect one’s overall appearance. For effective jawline contouring, it is required to reduce the width of the jaw. One of the best ways of doing this is by using Botox jaw reduction.
It is well-known that Botox is derived from botulinum toxin. When injected in low concentrations, it can be used to safely relax and diminish the volume of contracted jaw muscles. Botox is injected into the masseter muscle, which is the muscle that affects the shape and size of the jaw.
The effects of Botox last for three to four months. After this point, patients can return for maintenance appointments to preserve their contouring results.
Kybella is an injectable product that is used to reduce excess fat under the chin (the submental area). A double chin can be eliminated in this way without using surgical methods. Kybella is composed of synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally found in the body, where it is used to break down dietary fats.
Kybella is administered through a series of injections. It destroys the fat cells, which are gradually metabolized by the body and eliminated. As this occurs, the volume of the chin is reduced, creating permanent and effective jaw contouring.
The Cost of Jawline Contouring
The price of jawline contouring is dependent on a number of factors. The exact procedure chosen is the primary factor, and the anesthesia required also impacts the overall cost.
