Ever take a good look at a Roman or Greek statue at a museum? How about the portraits of famous leaders of history? Have you ever noticed the jaws of those depicted? They are often angular, strong and well-defined, right? For centuries, a sharp and defined jawline has been a sign of power, health, youth, achievement and a high level of fitness. If a strong and defined jaw is what you’re after, but you are having difficulty achieving the jawline of your dreams, don’t worry! Dr. Peterson can give you a little help.
Nonsurgical Treatment Options
If you want to get the jawline of your dreams but don’t want surgery, you’re in luck. We offer patients several solutions to help better define their jaw, including fillers, fat-melting injections (Kybella) and surgical thread-lifts. Keep in mind that these procedures are not permanent, and you may need multiple treatments to maintain results.
Dermal Fillers. Fillers can help enhance the edges and angles of your jaw and are ideal for individuals who do not have sagging skin or fat along their jawline.
Kybella. If you have a mild amount of excess fat, you can melt it away to help achieve the jaw you want by using Kybella. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable designed to melt away unwanted fat in the chin area.
Surgical Thread-Lift. If you have jowls but still want a defined jawline, a surgical thread-lift is an excellent option. During the procedure, surgical threads are placed around your jowls and tightened to lift your skin gently.
If you’re looking for something more permanent to define your jawline, Dr. Peterson also offers surgical options. Surgical solutions are also beneficial for individuals with a moderate to large amount of fat beneath the chin and loose skin around the neck.
Neck Liposuction. One of the surgical options offered by Dr. Peterson is neck liposuction to remove unwanted fat and tighten loose skin.
Surgical Neck-Lift. The neck-lift procedure is an excellent option to lift and tighten the excess skin and tissue that supports the neck. The result is a more defined neck and jawline and a more youthful appearance for you.
