Aesthetic evaluations that include the jawline have become more and more popular. With age, you may notice changes to your facial structure that are dissatisfying. With both surgical and non-surgical procedures, patients can achieve the ultimate jawline.
How Do Injectable Fillers Reshape The Jawline?
If you are beginning your cosmetic procedure journey, injectable fillers are a practical procedure to start with. Liquid fillers are a minimally invasive treatment people can use to improve their face structure. Injectable fillers can restore volume to the face, alter contours, and soften scars and wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful appearance. Fillers remain one of the most common cosmetic procedures because of the efficient results, minor risks, and very minimal downtime. The injection itself may take about one hour but some dermal fillers have effects that can last up to 2 years.
How Does Botox Affect The Jawline?
You may have already heard of this product because it is a household name. Botox is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the United States. Botox works by obstructing nerve signals, momentarily weakening the muscles in the injected area, and relaxing wrinkles and lines. Botox is an effective option for jawline slimming and reduction when administered by trained and experienced injectors. This injectable is usually effective for 3-4 months. Botox injections are often combined with other non-surgical treatments, such as dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments to provide complete facial rejuvenation. If you are interested in more permanent solutions, there are surgical procedures that can help you achieve the ultimate jawline.
What Is A Facelift?
A rhytidectomy is one of the most common surgical procedures used to restore youthfulness to the lower face and neck. There are different types of facelifts, including traditional facelifts, mini facelifts, and neck lifts.
- Traditional facelift surgery is a broad procedure addressing all areas of the face. This is usually a more extensive procedure.
- A mini face-lift is an adapted version of a traditional facelift that uses minimal incisions and minor cutting. This procedure only takes a couple of hours, is less invasive, uses small amounts of anesthesia, causes low scarring, and has a speedy recovery.
- A neck lift is a surgical procedure that restructures the neck and jawline.
What Can I Expect From A Facelift Procedure?
The area of the initial incision will depend on what area is being treated. For a traditional facelift, the incision will begin at the temples and continue down to your hairline around your ear and into the base of your scalp. For a mini face-lift, a less intrusive incision will be made behind your ears. For a neck lift, the incision will be made in front of your ear so that it wraps around the back of the ear.
During each procedure, excess fat and sagging skin are extracted, the underlying tissues are relocated, fat is shifted, and the facial muscles are raised. This procedure will result in a smoother jawline, by either reducing or enlarging your jawbone.
Your specialist can perform additional cosmetic procedures during a facelift. Some surgeons may advise multiple procedures at once to make the process easier and more effective. During a facelift, your surgeon may be able to add facial fillers, resurface your skin, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. To best determine a plan that meets your aesthetic goals and health needs, consult your aesthetic professional on what is practical and most effective.
Which Treatment Is Best For Me?
Injectable and facelifts are very popular procedures for achieving a defined jawline. However, everyone has different facial aging processes and ideal facial ratios. This makes accomplishing an outlined jaw a complex process. Going to experienced doctors that can help you achieve your goal is vital. The recovery process for each surgery is different, depending on the individual, so speak to your doctor about the recovery period prior to your surgery.
