Dr. Kayle shares his tips on getting a defined jawline without surgery
I would like to have a more defined jawline. Is it possible to achieve this without surgery?
Yes, it is. An additional use for fillers is to sculpt the jawline. To have a defined neck and jawline, you need to have a firm distinction between where the face ends and where the neck starts. Bone is what gives a more contoured look but for those who have not got the bone structure naturally, we can use a structural filler to achieve a similar outcome. The amount of filler that will be used will depend on the severity of the condition and the result you want to achieve. It is also worth noting that for some people, the lack of a defined jawline can be attributed to the neck muscle pulling too much in the down direction. By placing Botox strategically in the neck, you can cause the muscle to pull up and in, which will increase definition. The volume of Botox and filler will be determined by the doctor as it will need to be tailored to the individual. The filler will last up to one year, while the Botox neck will generally last five to six months, and best of all, these procedures have zero downtime and boast an immediate improvement in both the jawline and facial profile.
One important thing worth noting, however, is that because this is a delicate procedure necessitating a great deal of experience, you must go to an expert surgeon who has a stellar reputation for performing this procedure successfully.
