Jawline contouring refers to a range of techniques designed to smooth and/or slim the area surrounding the chin and neck. Depending on your needs, this may include reducing jowls, getting rid of excess fat, or smoothing horizontal neck bands. The ultimate goal of treatment is to achieve more definition in the neck and accentuate the jawline. Based on your personal preference and desired results, Dr. Sepehr can incorporate facial plastic surgery procedures and/or non-surgical cosmetic enhancement into your treatment plan. Patients often achieve the best, most comprehensive results through a combination of both modalities. For the majority of patients, this involves one of the following dual treatment options:
Jawline contouring is performed entirely with your goals and anatomical needs in mind and the following factors will help determine the best approach for you:

The lifespan of your results will depend on which procedures were part of your treatment plan. The outcome of surgical fat removal with submental liposuction should last indefinitely as long as patients maintain a stable weight. KYBELLA® injections can also offer long-lasting results, as fat cells are permanently destroyed. However, it is very important to commit to an active lifestyle after KYBELLA®, as any additional weight gain can still be distributed to surrounding fat cells.
Chin implants usually provide permanent results without the need for retreatment. Any enhancement with dermal fillers is temporary and the outcome can last anywhere from 9 to 24 months, depending on which product was used.
