Getting a Defined Jawline:
the best Aesthetic Treatments
Everything you need to know about the options available for a more defined jawline and choosing what’s right for you
When it comes to facial aesthetics, the jawline often takes center stage in defining one’s profile and overall balance. However, not everyone is satisfied with the appearance of their jawline and chin. Thankfully, there are several options available for lower face rejuvenation, all of which are offered at Clinique Le 1620.
Chin Implants for Facial Harmony
If you have a weak chin, a chin implant may be the most suitable option for you.
Chin implants involve surgically inserting a solid biocompatible implant to change the chin’s size and shape. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, and the implant is placed through an incision either inside the mouth or beneath the chin.
Chin implants can improve facial balance by providing a stronger and more defined chin, thus creating a more harmonious profile. The implants come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, allowing for a custom experience based on individual facial features and the desired outcome. Once the implant is in place, it is a permanent solution to chin augmentation, requiring no further maintenance or touch ups.
Since this is a surgical procedure, the recovery time typically takes a few weeks. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort may occur, but it gradually subsides, leaving you with a chin and jawline that helps to balance out your facial harmony.
Liposuction to Refine the Jawline
If you are looking to remove excess fat beneath the chin and jaw, then liposuction is a great option.
Jawline liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to remove excess fat from the chin and neck area. It involves using a thin tube called a cannula to suction out unwanted fat deposits and thus redefine the chin area.
Compared to surgical procedures, like a chin implant, liposuction is relatively less invasive and requires smaller incisions, resulting in minimal scarring. It also features a shorter recovery time and patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few days.
Although liposuction is a good option for fat reduction, it is most effective for individuals who have good skin elasticity. If you have significant loose or sagging skin, additional procedures such as a neck lift, may be recommended for the best results. It also may not address issues related to chin projection or bone structure, so hence a chin implant or fillers may be a more suitable option.
FaceTite for Lower Face Rejuvenation
If you are looking for a less invasive yet permanent solution to a sculpted jawline, then FaceTite may be for you.
FaceTite is an advanced facial rejuvenation technique that utilizes radio frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) technology to contour and tighten the skin in specific areas.
This minimally-invasive surgical procedure targets the chin and jawline, effectively eliminating excess fat and tightening loose skin, resulting in a more defined and youthful facial contour. FaceTite works by delivering controlled radiofrequency energy through a small probe inserted under the skin. This energy gently heats the underlying tissues, causing the fat cells to dissolve and the collagen fibers to contract. This technology not only removes unwanted fat, but also stimulates collagen production, leading to long-lasting skin tightening effects.
There are many benefits to FaceTite as it offers an alternative to traditionally more invasive chin and jawline sculpting procedures, such as implants or liposuction. It also generally completed within an hour or two, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles. It requires minimal downtime, so most patients can resume their regular activities within a few days to about a week, post-operatively.
As mentioned above, FaceTite not only removes excess fat, but also stimulates collagen production, leading to continued improvement in skin firmness and elasticity over time. The results can last several years, making it a cost-effective option for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Mirko Gilardino is a FaceTite specialist and has used the technology on hundreds of patients over the years.
Injectable Fillers to Define the Jawline
For those who are looking for a non-surgical approach to jawline enhancement, fillers can be the perfect option.
Jawline fillers, which are typically composed of hyaluronic acid, offer a non-invasive solution to add volume, contour, and symmetry to the chin area. This procedure is temporary, with results lasting between six and 18 months, depending on how your body metabolizes the filler, as well as the specific product used. Jawline fillers start at $750 per syringe at Clinique Le 1620.
Jaw filler injections provide a customizable solution and are injected into precise areas of the jaw and chin to achieve the desired shape and projection. The good thing about fillers is that the results are immediate and have little to no downtime. As well, since they are typically injected along the jawline, they do not directly affect the muscles responsible for smiling, and, in most cases, should not significantly affect your smile.
Fillers also offer the flexibility to adjust or reverse the results if needed, making them a suitable option for those who prefer temporary enhancements or want to explore different jawline aesthetics over time.
Although jawline fillers are generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced professional, there are some potential side effects that can occur. Some side effects include swelling and bruising, discomfort or pain, redness and tenderness, allergic reactions, lumpiness or unevenness, and infection. It’s important to note that these side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.
