You may think there is nothing you can do to change your facial profile, but jaw augmentation can indeed do just that. Men and women seek this cosmetic procedure to sculpt and alter their facial dynamics for aesthetically pleasing effects. Many people are surprised to see the striking enhancements jaw augmentation produces to the entire face. By balancing out facial features and adjusting recessed chins or weak jawlines, patients benefit from bringing the jaw and chin into proportion with the rest of their face.

Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery can perform jaw augmentation in Virginia Beach with dermal fillers, so you can still get the look you want even if surgery is not your thing. It is hard to overstate how this seemingly small change with minimal effort provides such large rewards for our clients. We make it easy for locals to schedule a consultation at their convenience and determine if jaw augmentation meets their needs.

Benefits of Jaw Augmentation

The jaw and chin area can have a significant impact on facial harmony. Changing the shape of the jawline and adding definition have shown to offer dramatic yet natural results. For people with more prominent noses, a jaw augmentation can balance the face out to completely change their look without rhinoplasty or other surgeries.

Many Virginia Beach residents have used jaw augmentation to successfully reduce the appearance of jowls or double chin, which can be an unavoidable side effect of aging. In some cases, a small jawline or recessed chin can be the cause of jowls or a double chin. Additionally, patients can strengthen an underdeveloped chin, remove chin dimpling, or achieve a more triangular shape to the jawline.

Fillers Versus Implants for Jaw Augmentation

Fillers used in Virginia Beach for jaw augmentation are commonly hyaluronic acid and last up to one year. Other types of fillers made of polymethyl methacrylate, or PMMA, are longer lasting and considered semi-permanent. Our specialists inject fillers under the skin by the jawline for countering. This minimally invasive procedure provides immediate results and requires minimal downtime if any.  Touch-ups and revisions are necessary to maintain the desired look.

Implants used for jaw augmentation require a surgical procedure with downtime of a week or two before doctors clear patients to resume normal activities. While implants are permanent and require little to no maintenance, surgical implants require more work upfront and are substantially more expensive. Patients should meet with our team to determine what type of jaw augmentation is ideal for them.
