Your jawline contributes to the balance of your entire face. The jaw affects how your nose and cheeks look, balancing your face by creating definition between the cheeks and jaw. The ideal jaw is shaped like an upside-down egg with soft angles that are not square, and is smooth and free of excess fat and skin. Not happy with yours? Here are two ways to improve the look of your jawline.
1. Achieving a chiseled jawline by using injectables and filler: For a less permanent fix, Botox or Dysport can be injected below the jawline to prevent the neck muscles from contracting and forcing the jowl to pull downward. Fillers like Sculptra Aesthetic and the hyaluronic acids, can be injected in front of and behind the jowls to smooth the jawline and add just a bit of volume for a more proportional jaw.
2. Get long-lasting results with implants: By placing small, soft silicone implants in or around the jawline, your plastic surgeon can create a more balanced look. A small incision is usually made inside the mouth, and an implant is inserted to build up the jawline. After surgery, your lower face will be bruised and swollen, and you may have difficulty eating, chewing, speaking or smiling for the first few days.
