Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane are popular ways to recontour the jawline without having to undergo surgery. Using injectables is a quick and easy option for restoring lost volume.
Most times, the treatment takes less than 30 minutes and generally does not require downtime or anesthesia. Though you may experience some bruising, swelling or redness, the results are immediate and last up to a year, depending on the filler and the area injected.
If you’re looking for more permanent results, your doctor may recommend fat grafting-a procedure where fat is removed from an area like the thighs or buttocks and injected into the deep tissues of the face. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia or mild sedation and may require a few days of downtime.
Keep in mind, with fat grafting, generally 30% to 50% of the transferred fat stays permanently, so you may opt to repeat the procedure to obtain maximum results.
