Jaw Filler & Non-Surgical Jaw Contouring
with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY
The jaw and jawline have become an important facial feature for both men and women. Celebrities have made well defined jawlines popular, especially because they are a sign of youth and can give off graceful, strong, or attractive vibes. The jawline naturally offers an angled shape, but due to facial shape, structure, weight, and other factors, it does not always present in the way a patient wants. A non-surgical jaw contouring procedure can help address these patient concerns. Dr. Scott Blyer provides the best jaw filler in Long Island and NYC.
Overview: Non-Surgical Jaw Contouring
Patients can choose to contour their jaw surgically or non-surgically. In mose cares, non-surgical jaw enhancement via fillers or other injectables is the best route for patients to achieve their goals. Jaw filler is less common than other filler procedures, mainly because chin augmentation also helps elongate and slim the jawline.For patients who do qualify, Dr. B and the providers at Cameo Surgery Center may use multiple types of cosmetic injectables to provide adequate enhancement. Some non-surgical ways to contour the jawline include:
- Botox: Botox injected into the masseter muscle can help slim the face. The masseter can become overly large for various reasons which can lead to a wide facial appearance. It may also distort the natural facial anatomy.
- Filler: Fillers can achieve many different types of results when enhancing the jaw. Firstly, it can help make the back of the jaw look more square and chiseled. This is popular among men. For women, it can also address this area and create a sharper jawline. Occasionally, the filler is injected along the jawline as well.
- Kybella: Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat under the chin. This can reduce the prominence of a double chin and may make the jawline look slimmer and more defined as well.
The jaw serves an extremely important functional purpose, but it can also impact overall facial appearance. Thus, maintaining the function of the jaw while enhancing the aesthetics requires a skilled and experienced provider. Additionally, patients—especially men and women—tend to have different cosmetic goals.
Women and men often want a different aesthetic result. Men naturally have larger jaws and tend to have a sharper angle at the joint. This leads them to want a square jaw, but that does not overly protrude or make the face look wide. Women have a gentler angle at the joint. Ideally, this creates a rounder and graceful slope.
Some women do want a sharper jaw which is possible most of the time. Other times, jaw filler can help balance the face. Ultimately, Dr. Blyer will evaluate each patient individually to determine if jaw filler or another non-surgical jaw contouring option is best.
Candidates For Jaw Filler
Candidates for jaw fillers tend to be in good overall health and have no known allergies to ingredients in the filler or other products used. Also, their anatomy should be able to benefit from the procedure. Most healthy adults are likely good candidates for some type of non-surgical jaw contouring procedure.
Jaw filler comes with some benefits and risks like all medically-based treatments. Fillers and other cosmetic injectables have good overall safety records and come with a relatively low risk. However, Dr. B and the patient need to consider the benefits and risks to make an educated decision on whether non-surgical jaw contouring is the best treatment option.
- Benefits of jaw filler injections can include:
- Sharper, more defined jawline
- Slimmer looking face
- Add volume to a recessed jaw or jawline
- Create more facial symmetry and balance
- Younger appearance
- Enhance the separation between the jawline and neck
- Improve the facial profile
- Address wrinkles and fine lines
- Strengthen a weak jawline
- Quick procedure
- Completely non-surgical
- Looks natural once fully healed
- Little to no downtime
- Low risk
- Instant results
- Can be reversed (hyaluronic acid fillers only)
- Temporary, but long lasting
- Performed by qualified and experienced injectors
Non-surgical jaw contouring generally is a low risk procedure. However, patients should always understand the risks before opting for any cosmetic procedure. Some of the possible risks include:
- Severe or prolonged bruising and/or swelling
- Pain or difficulty moving the jaw (temporary)
- Patient dislikes the results
- Nodule formation
- Blood vessel blockage
Non-reversible fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse can help enhance the jaw, but these fillers are not reversible. Most of the time, these options are recommended only for specific anatomy or for experienced patients. Hyaluronic acid filler is usually recommended for first-time jaw filler patients and those who want the lowest risk possible.
Wonder If Facelift With Neck Lift Works The Best For You?
Many patients do not experience major pain with jaw injections. Numbing cream can be applied and most fillers contain a small amount of lidocaine in their formulas to make the injections more comfortable. Patients often express surprise that jaw fillers hurt less than they expected.
The best dermal filler for jaw enhancement depends largely on the patient’s anatomy and goals. In most cases, the provider will recommend a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane Lyft or Juvederm Voluma. These fillers can be dissolved by an agent known as hyaluronidase which increases safety and allows the patient to try on the look for a while without committing long term.
The amount of time a patient enjoys their results depends on a few factors. First, the type of filler used because certain fillers last longer than others. Semi-permanent fillers last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers. Certain hyaluronic acid fillers can last up to two years. Otherwise, the average amount of time is around one year.
The patient’s biology is also a factor. If the patient has a fast metabolism, this can lead to their filler breaking down faster. Athletes and those that exercise frequently may see filler not last as long. The average workout routine minimally affects fillers in most cases.
When the filler wears off, the jaw will return to its original contour. Patients may seek a touch-up as soon as it is visible that the filler is wearing off. Some patients worry that filler will permanently stretch the skin. In the jaw, this is unlikely because it is not an area that patients or providers want to overfill repeatedly.
The exact cost of jaw filler depends on the filler used and the amount of filler used. Cameo Surgery Center’s filler prices are as follows:
- Juvederm: $689 per syringe
- Restylane: $689 per syringe
- Voluma: $800 per syringe
- Radiesse: $749 per syringe
- Sculptra: $699 per syringe
Exact costs can more accurately be calculated upon consultation with an injector where they can better understand the number and type of filler necessary.
