Redefine Your Jawline

Want To Redefine Your Jawline? Here Are Your Options

If you want to redefine your jawline, you’re not alone. At Mittelman Plastic Surgery Center, many of our patients tell us the area they most want to change is from their jawline to the collarbone.

What Is Happening To Your Jawline?

Jowls, double-chins, saggy necks and crepey skin are all an accumulation of fat and skin on your lower face. But, the real problem actually begins higher, on your mid-face. As we age, we lose volume in our faces and the skin’s supportive network of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin breaks down. The result is that facial muscles and tissues have less support and everything below begins to sag.

Saggy Jawline – What Are My Options?

Fortunately, we have many options for addressing lose skin and excess fat around the jawline and neck. The best way to determine what is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our double-board certified facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Harry Mittelman But in the meantime, we’ve outlined some of your options for a more chiseled jawline depending on your concerns and goals:

Dermal Fillers To Lift The Jawline – Best for mild to moderate jowling and jawline laxity

If you have mild jowling or skin laxity in that area, one way to tighten is actually to add volume to the cheeks using dermal fillers. Adding fillers to the midface will lift the skin and therefore give the jawline a more defined and tight appearance.

Another way to use dermal fillers to give the appearance of a more solid jawline, is to inject filler into the prejowl sulcus – the area between the jowl and chin – to blend the jaw and chin into a straighter line.

Using dermal fillers to replace lost structural support in the face can make a natural but dramatic change in the contour of your jawline.
