Jawline augmentation is becoming quite the popular facial adjustment, as many patients seek to enhance and define their jawline either surgically or non-surgically. In our latest online interview, highly revered London-based consultant oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Miss Natasha Berridge, walks us through the different non-surgical and surgical options when it comes to jawline augmentation.
What is jawline augmentation?
Jawline augmentation is a term used to define a group of procedures that define and tighten the lower third of the face. Jawline augmentation is becoming increasingly desirable.
What are the non-surgical options for jawline augmentation?
There are surgical and non-surgical treatment options that are used to achieve a more snatched and tighter jawline. Whether you go down the surgical pathway or non-surgical route really depends on the cause of your ill-defined jawline.
The main non-surgical options include Botox, with the main aim here being to enhance the contour of the jaw. Radiofrequency skin tightening is also an option.
What are the main surgical options?
Naturally, there are a lot of surgical options to enhance the jawline. The main ones include the following:
- mandibular osteotomy
- jaw implants
- chin implants
Does a neck lift improve one’s jawline?
A neck lift most certainly helps define the lower part of the face. It gets surgical access to the deeper parts of the face, which tightens and improves the drape of the lower facial tissues, thereby giving you a more snatched, crisp, and defined jawline.
