Many people are bothered by a recessed chin, fullness in the neck and a weak jawline. However, double board-certified Atlanta Jawline Contouring expert Dr. Julia Kerolus knows the importance of a solid jawline to make your face appear more attractive and demand more attention. A chin and jawline contouring procedure can fight age and genetics, giving you a defined jawline. Schedule a consultation with Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery to how reshaping your face can change your world.
A sharp, defined jaw
The term "jawline contouring" refers to a variety of procedures that improve the appearance of the neck and jawline. The chin, jaw, and lower face are reshaped using these treatments. Specific procedures target a sagging jawline caused by the aging process, while others focus on eliminating extra fat or addressing a natural bony structural deficiency.
Surgical options may include submental and neck liposuction, buccal fat removal, neck lift, or chin implant. Dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of jowls, give the jaw a sharper look, balance the symmetry of your face, and strengthen the chin. During your consultation for Jawline Contouring Atlanta Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kerolus will discuss your goals and create a custom and unique series of procedures to ensure you love your new look. The overall goal is to give you a younger, more balanced appearance that gives you the confidence to walk with your chin held high.
Patients who undergo chin ad jawline contouring procedures, get permanent results that cannot be obtained through weight loss or lifestyle modification.
It is usual for people to lose bone density in their jaws as they get older. This affects both men and women, but it is more common in women due to hormonal changes associated with menopause. As a result, fat can build up under the chin, resulting in a loss of definition; others may lack, to begin with, a strong jawline structure. Jawline contouring treatments are safe to treat most men and women efficiently. Patients considering jawline contouring should be at a healthy and maintainable weight, be nonsmokers, and have good skin elasticity.
If you are unhappy with your jawline, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kerolus to find out how jawline contouring can improve the shape and structure of your face.
Before surgery, you'll meet with Dr. Kerolus to thoroughly discuss your goals and expectations. It is essential for Dr. Kerolus to ensure that both of you are on the same page as far as anticipated results are concerned.
She may use a marker to mark your face before entering the operating room to confirm the surgery sites. Depending on your preferences, Dr. Kerolus can tighten different layers or create a more subtle modification. Some patients opt for a chin implant (genioplasty) or dermal fillers to supplement this treatment, but it isn't always necessary. Dr. Kerolus will next use dissolvable stitches to close the incisions delicately. After everything is said and done, you will be able to leave the clinic the same day and head home to begin your recovery.
Safe and long-lasting
It's typical to experience face swelling following surgery, depending on the extent of your procedure. Dr. Kerolus will give you instructions on what foods and beverages are safe to consume, what kind of medicines you can take, how to sleep without disturbing your face, and when you can return to work or school. After the procedure, you should not smoke, engage in intense activities, or exercise. Once the swelling has subsided, you will notice instant and permanent improvements.
Results you will anticipate
Your results will vary based on your specific combination of procedures. For example, fillers can last up to two years, while surgical procedures can last up to ten years. Therefore, it is essential to have an honest discussion with Dr. Kerolus about your anticipated results to ensure you both clearly understand what is expected.
A distinguished jawline and chin can change people's perceptions and make you look younger and more energetic. Find out how Jawline Contouring can make a difference for you by scheduling an Atlanta consultation at Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery.
Mild discomfort is to be expected with any face-altering procedure. However, everyone tolerates pain at different levels. An honest discussion with Dr. Kerolus will allow you to ask how to manage the pain based on your own tolerance.
Dermal fillers are another choice for those who don't want to have surgery but want a more defined jawline. The greatest candidates for jawline fillers already have a prominent jawline that they wish to augment slightly.
Botox injections along the jawline have a similar effect to jawline shaving surgery. However, Botox is less permanent. Botox works by thinning the masseter muscles (chewing muscles on the sides of the face), giving the face a slimmer appearance.
Taking care of yourself is about more than just annual check-ups and eating right. You also want to preserve your ability to look and feel your best. If you feel like you have an area that you want to improve through plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kerolus. She will make sure you find the right treatment for your best results.
