Why don’t I have a defined jawline?

What’s standing between you and your perfect profile? The answers vary, but common reasons for a weak jawline include:

  • Genetics: Your natural bone structure might not lend itself to a strong chin or jawline.
  • Aging: As we age, skin elasticity decreases, leading to sagging and laxity along the jawline.
  • Weight Fluctuation: Weight gain or loss, resulting in excess fat or loose skin, can affect jawline appearance.

What’s the best treatment for the jawline?

Jawline treatment differs from patient to patient based on your facial anatomy and aesthetic goals, which typically vary for male and female patients. However, everyone has their own unique vision. This may include achieving sharp, chiseled contours or subtle jawline definition. During your personalized consultation with Dr. Rockmore, he’ll assess your skin, discuss your goals, and share your surgical and nonsurgical jawline treatment options.

How does jawline surgery work?

Patients with pronounced jowls and loose skin often choose a neck lift or lower facelift to lift and tighten skin for a more youthful and defined jawline. Neck liposuction is another alternative for removing excess chin fat to sculpt the jawline. Some individuals may benefit from chin augmentation with a silicone implant to balance facial features. While surgical jawline treatments involve more downtime and recovery, they produce natural, long-lasting results.

Which jawline fillers tighten the jawline?

Jawline fillers don’t actually tighten the jawline. They can add structure and shape, making the contours of the chin and jawline appear more defined. Popular hyaluronic acid (HA)–based fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE® safely and effectively define and sculpt the jawline. Unlike surgical treatments, jawline injectables provide immediate results with minimal downtime. However, results are less dramatic and more temporary than a facelift or neck lift.

There are, also injectable treatments for slimming the chin and jawline:

  • KYBELLA: If excess fat under the chin is hiding your jawline, KYBELLA injections dissolve submental fat to add definition between the face and neck and produce a sleeker, slimmer jawline.
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: For certain individuals with a wide or bulky jawline, BOTOX injections can shrink the masseter muscles and create a slimmer, more V-shaped lower face.
