With the explosion of social media, we are seeing celebrities, models and Instagram influencers sharing beautiful selfies and gaining thousands of followers in the process. Their sculpted jawline and sharp angles tempt us to press the ‘follow’ button too. How do they do it? While many claim that it’s about the lighting, your fat deposits and bone structure both play a significant role in getting that picture-perfect angle. Your jawline is one of the most noticeable features on your face and contributes heavily to your entire facial aesthetic. Because of this, many women are getting their jawline recontoured surgically.
Getting your jawline recontoured through surgery gives the best long-term results. Some jawline recontouring cases are medical while others are aesthetic. In aesthetic cases, females are generally looking to reduce a prominent jaw for a more feminine look, get a defined jawline and remove a double chin. We all have different facial proportions, so this procedure should be customized to enhance your natural beauty.
Depending on your features, jawline recontouring can combine neck liposuction, buccal fat pad removal, chin reduction surgery and chin implants.
Getting rid of a double chin
A long neckline is considered graceful and helps the face look more refined while enhancing your profile. Many women come in looking to get rid of a double chin. Genetics are the main factor for double chins, but weight gain can contribute as well. A neck liposuction gets rid of double chins and refines the area under the jaw, making the jawline look more chiseled.
Slimming the face
Your buccal fat pads are located in the lower cheek. Both genetics and weight gain play a big role in the size of your fat pads. Buccal fat pad removal is a surgical procedure for reducing these fat pads, slimming down the face. This can help result in a more sculpted look.
Reshaping the Chin: Reduction
Along with your nose, your chin plays a prominent role when it comes to facial aesthetics. Chins that are too wide or jut out too far can be reshaped through chin reduction surgery. Your jaw develops until you reach 20, so this type of surgery is recommended for people 20 and above. In this surgery, excess bone is removed and shaped to contour the face.
Reshaping the Chin: Implants
While some people want to reduce a prominent chin, others are worried that their chin isn’t prominent enough. In these cases, implants can be used to create a natural-looking, sculpted jaw line. A chin implant will help define the chin from the neck area. Usually, chin implants are done in conjunction with rhinoplasty, keeping facial proportions balanced.
