The effects of age and gravity can cause skin to sag around the jawline, creating a “jowly” appearance. Also, as other areas of the face lose volume, such as the cheeks, the skin can hang more loosely over the jaw. Although surgery is the best and sometimes the only viable solution for correcting severe cases, especially in older patients, modest sagging can be camouflaged by the use of injectable fillers.
Dr. Siproin can add volume to your cheeks and jawline to both lift sagging skin and add definition. Adding volume beneath the skin causes the excess skin to lie more smoothly on top of it (think of adding air to a deflated balloon). And by adding filler to the jawline, Dr. Siporin can give the face a sharper, more defined profile.
Although results from jawline augmentation are immediate and can be long lasting, they are not permanent and must be maintained. The procedure is simple, quick and with the addition of numbing cream of an injected numbing medication, relatively free of discomfort. As with any injectable procedure, redness at the injection site, bruising, or swelling are possible but these effects are usually mild and temporary.
