The face is an important physical feature that is typically the primary focal point when interacting with others. So it can be discouraging when we begin to notice unflattering signs of aging appearing on our faces.
Losing facial definition and developing pockets of fat in stubborn areas can affect the overall shape and seem almost impossible to erase.
Minimally invasive procedures can help restore the flattering angles on our face and redefine the jawline and neckline.
What Surgical Procedures Can Redefine My Chin and Jawline?
Dr. Persky offers different surgical procedures and techniques to sculpt and redefine important facial features. Depending on how fast you need to see the results or the type of facial corrections you hope to see, there is an option for everyone.
Liposuction on the Neck
Chin fat is almost as stubborn to get rid of as neck fat. Liposuction for the neck targets and removes excess fat hanging on the neck. Vertical banding, also referred to as the platysma bands, are long and visible lines that can extend from the top to the base of the neck. Liposuction can help laser away the loose, hanging skin.
People who are searching for more drastic results may choose mentoplasty, or chin surgery. This surgical procedure enhances the structure of the chin by placing chin implants or reducing the bone itself. This procedure can improve facial contours and enhance the jawline definition by inserting a shaped silicone implant to increase chin projection or by mentoplasty reduction to the bone to decrease an overly projecting chin.
Facelift and Neck Lift
Laxity on the lower face and neck can soften the angles of the chin and obscure your desired definition. This surgical combination tightens the underlying tissues of the face and neck while trimming away excess skin.
After a facelift and neck lift combination, your jowls will be minimized and your jawline will be more contoured.
What Non-surgical Procedures Can Redefine My Chin and Jawline?
Profound™ Lift implements the use of microneedling and radiofrequency to treat sagging skin on the face and neck and to lift the forehead. This technique tightens the skin and strengthens the contours of the jawline.
As we age, our cheeks can naturally lose volume and begin to sag. These tissues settle around the jawline to obscure its contour. Injectable treatments can restore this definition and return youthfulness.
Dr. Persky uses JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, an FDA-approved injectable treatment for cheek augmentation, to restore lost volume in the cheeks and redefine facial contours and improve the jawline. This non-surgical cheek augmentation technique provides long-lasting results.
Sculptra® Aesthetic, Restylane® Lyft™, and RADIESSE® are additional injectable fillers offered by Dr. Persky to enhance the chin and jawline.
Excess fat underneath the chin can seem almost impossible to remove. KYBELLA® is an injectable modulator that permanently destroys stubborn fat cells under the chin. This technique can redefine the jawline structure and enhance facial features without surgery.
