The jawline is one of the most defining features of the face, and a well-defined jaw can give the face a youthful appearance. However, as we age, the jawline can become less defined due to a loss of muscle mass and bone density. Jaw contouring surgery, or jaw reshaping surgery, is a procedure that can help to combat this by sculpting and redefining the jawline. Dr. Edmund Kwan is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in the New York area who can offer this and other facial plastic surgeries to help patients boost their confidence and feel better about the way they look!
How Can Jaw Contouring Surgery Provide a More Youthful Look?
The surgery can be performed using various techniques, including liposuction, radiofrequency ablation, and dermal fillers. Each technique has its own benefits and risks, so it’s important to consult with Dr. Edmund Kwan, a qualified surgeon in the area of New York, New York, to determine which technique is right for you. In some instances, a chin implant can be used to help define the jawline and improve a patient’s profile appearance. Each treatment is custom-tailored to a patient’s needs.
What Can I Expect in Reshaping the Jawline?
This minimally invasive procedure can help to slim and define the jaw, resulting in a more youthful appearance. The surgery involves making small incisions along the jawline and inserting a thin tube called a cannula. Through this cannula, the surgeon will remove excess fat and sculpt the underlying bone. The surgeon may also use dermal fillers to add definition to the jawline in some cases. Jaw contouring surgery is often performed with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelift surgery or eyelid surgery. Some patients even combine it with a facelift or neck lift. A customized treatment plan can be designed with the patient’s unique needs in mind at the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan.
