Loose or sagging skin at the jawline and chin, or an undefined jawline, could all mean you are a great candidate for jawline contouring. Dr. Garo Kassabian of Beverly Hills is renowned for his signature, non-invasive contouring procedure, the Game Changer™. This procedure enhances the jawline and chin through volumizing, lifting techniques, and reshaping–without the use of anesthesia or surgery.Types of for Jawline Contouring
There are two methods of jawline contouring: surgical and non-surgical. A consultation at our clinic can help determine which option is best for each patient.
Surgical jawline contouring usually entails liposuction, chin implants, and/or buccal fat pad removal – each individual’s procedure varies. Liposuction removes excess fat at the base of the jaw in the neck, while chin implants extend and define the jawline. Buccal fat pad removal consists of withdrawing fat deposits in the cheeks to create a slim and contoured appearance.
If you prefer a minimally invasive procedure, a non-surgical option is available. Botox and dermal fillers are the most popular treatments. Fillers add natural volume and a lifting effect to reduce sagging and drooping, and provide subtle contours to the jawline. A combination of both Botox and dermal fillers reduce wrinkles and fine lines in areas around the lips, chin, or jaw.
Am I A Candidate for the Game Changer™?
If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your jawline, neck, or chin, the Game Changer™ could be an option for you. Whether you would like a more feminine and contoured appearance, rigid masculine lines, or simple smoothing of wrinkles and slightly tightening loose skin, Dr. Kassabian can use his signature technique to give your jawline a natural, contoured look.
Before you receive treatment, a consultation with Dr. Kassabian is necessary to discuss your medical history and expectations. This will determine which treatment option and plan is best for you. If it is decided that the Game Changer™ is best for your needs, you can receive the treatment during the same appointment as your consultation.
What to expect from the Game Changer™
Contouring makeup takes time, skill, and products – which can end up costing a lot throughout your lifetime. The Game ChangerTM offers patients a semi-permanent solution. This signature technique, crafted by Dr. Garo Kassabian, does not require incisions or the use of needles. Instead, he uses Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Voluma XC facial fillers to help achieve a natural contoured appearance, enhance your natural beautiful lines, and create a balanced look. The number of injections needed for contouring will be dependent upon expectations, facial structure, and your skin’s health.
Recovery & Results
Some patients may be concerned whether any pain is involved during the non-surgical procedure. Patients experience minimal to no discomfort, but a topical and/or local anesthetic is applied to the area to reduce any pain or discomfort.
The Game Changer™ is performed on an outpatient basis and takes approximately an hour or less – you can even have it done during your lunch break. There is no downtime and rarely any bruising or swelling. Once the procedure is complete, you can return to your daily routine when you are comfortable.
The results of the procedure are instant, except for Botox which take 7-10 days to become effective. You may notice a more defined jawline, tightening and lifting of loose skin , and diminished wrinkles. Results last approximately 18 months, depending on your lifestyle and the way your body naturally metabolizes the filler.
An incredible advantage of having facial fillers is that they encourage the skin to produce more collagen. As the filler starts to dissolve, your skin naturally produces more collagen, giving you a more youthful appearance in the long run.
