A defined jawline is a coveted beauty standard in the twenty-first century. However, few people naturally have this structure, or they lose it over time due to aging. Most people turn to makeup to achieve this look, but this is temporary, subject to smudging, and is obviously present on the skin. It can also be time consuming and interfere with everyday life. Dermal fillers offer a longer lasting solution. Sarasota Surgical Arts offers the best jaw filler Sarasota provides.
Jaw filler is a non-surgical way to enhance the appearance of the jaw using dermal fillers. There are multiple ways this can be done and the right technique for you largely depends on your starting anatomy. Fillers can help achieve a sharper, squarer, and more prominent jawline. It is used by both men and women to create either a more masculine or feminine look.
Cosmetic surgeons and injectors use a variety of fillers for jaw enhancement. Most commonly, hyaluronic acid fillers are the preferred option. Nearly any Restylane or Juvederm filler is viable for jaw filler injections. Though, some of the frequently used fillers in the jaw include Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Defyne, and the semi-permanent Radiesse.
When considering the anatomy of the jaw and how it affects filler treatment, it is one of the trickier places to inject filler. The jaw is full of muscles, little fat or soft tissue, and maintaining movement is vital. Therefore, your provider must inject precisely based on your anatomy to keep the results looking natural and the jaw functioning properly.
Additionally, with aging, the jaw can begin to look less defined. The jawline can sag, the skin loses elasticity, and the little volume in the area can decrease. Filler injections can help restore a younger look. Though, if jowling has progressed to a certain point, Dr. Sessa may recommend a facelift to correct the jowls first. After that, filler may provide further enhancement.
Jawline enhancement with fillers offers several benefits to patients wanting a more defined and prominent jawline. Though, since filler can achieve countless results, not everyone will see the same types of benefits. For example, one person may receive filler towards the back of the jaw for a squarer jaw while another may have jaw filler along the jawline and chin to address asymmetry. Some of the benefits and advantages of Sarasota jaw filler include:
Men and women often have differing goals for any type of filler treatment. However, when it comes to jaw filler the goals are especially opposite. While both tend to want a sharp, defined jawline, women do not want to look too masculine and vice versa. This also leads providers to use varying techniques for men and women. Below you can find some of the differences between jaw filler for men vs. women.
Of course, jaw filler for men and women do share many similarities. Both may also treat the chin which can naturally elongate the jawline. Ultimately, jaw filler enhances the natural bone structure in both men and women.
Before getting jaw filler injections in Sarasota, you will meet with a provider at Sarasota Surgical Arts. They will evaluate your medical history, relevant history, treatment goals, and anatomy to recommend and create a customized treatment plan. If jaw filler is part of this plan, they will further explain the procedure and filler options. However, if they believe you are not a candidate for jaw filler or another procedure would better help you reach your goals.
If you choose to proceed with the injections or want to understand the cost of each of your options, the Sarasota Surgical Arts team will provide a personalized price quote. They will also give you financing information if desired.
To prepare for your jaw filler injections, your provider will first disinfect the area. They will then apply numbing agents to the injection sites. Most hyaluronic acid fillers also contain lidocaine to help ease the pain of the injections. Generally, jaw filler injections are not too painful, but your provider will do everything they can to make it as painless as possible.
Beginning the injections, your provider will use either a needle or cannula to insert the filler. Depending on your goals and anatomy, there may be multiple injection sites at the back of the jaw, along the jawline, and on the chin. The injections usually do not take more than thirty minutes.
After the injections, your provider may gently massage the filler into place to prevent asymmetry or bumps. Other injections can complement jaw filler and often are performed at the same time. A few of these include Kybella, Botox, and other cheek fillers.
Immediately following the injections, you will see results. However, in the coming hours and days, swelling and the settling of the skin and filler may distort results. Your provider will advise you to wait at least two weeks before considering the results final and evaluating them as such.
Dr. Sessa and his team aim for natural results catered to each patient’s goals and desires. They will also use their expertise to create an ideal treatment plan that will complement both the patient’s facial anatomy and goals.
Jaw filler can help reduce the look of early jowl formation. However, if you have a large amount of extra skin and are a facelift candidate, filler will not be an effective option. This is largely up to an individual’s skin quality, progression of aging, and anatomy. Your provider will determine if jaw filler is a good fit for correcting your jowls.
Jaw filler is largely considered safe. There are risks like with any medical based procedure. However, if you go to a qualified provider and use safe, FDA-approved fillers, jaw filler is perfectly safe for most people. Certain medical conditions may increase risks which is why it is important to discuss your medical history with your provider.
Yes, though, it is best used to treat a double chin in conjunction with other procedures. For example, jaw filler with Kybella treatments may help reduce a double chin while enhancing the jaw structure. If the double chin is slight, jaw filler and/or chin filler may help correct it.
Jaw filler does come with some risks. While generally minimal, some of the risks of jaw filler can include:
Some minor side effects following jaw filler are perfectly normal. They should subside in about two weeks or less. Among the side effects, you may expect can include:
The exact cost of jaw filler will depend on the type of filler chosen and the number of syringes needed. A more accurate estimate can be given upon consultation. To find out per syringe pricing, visit our price list.
