How To Achieve The Ultimate Jawline, JLo Style!
We are 100% positive that JLo had a mini facelift performed in the past couple of years. Jawline definition have become the go-to when it comes to enhancing our beauty..Why? Having a sharp, well-defined jawline is a sign of health, fitness and youth.. Lopez being the ultimate example to this procedure, and thanks to modern plastic surgery, there exists some nonsurgical and surgical options for those of you craving that happy-birthday-you’re-so-hot-for-a-woman-who’s-50 comment, this article is for you..
Nonsurgical options are best for patients who have mild to moderate fat obscuring the jawline, a fairly well-defined chin area and minimal to moderate loose skin around the jawline. Options include dermal fillers, neurotoxins, fat melting injectable agents and surgical threads.
Dermal fillers to the jawline
By injecting dermal fillers to directly to the jawline, the edge of your bony angle and mandible is enhanced. This works best in patients who are “almost there” but do not quite have a hard bony edge that you can see.
Typically you will need 1-4 syringes of dermal fillers, based on your anatomy and how defined you want your jawline. The results are immediate and should last about 12-18 months, depending on the dermal filler used.
Botox to the masseter muscles
Botox can be placed directly in the masseter muscles of the face, which will slim your overall facial shape into a slightly more “V” like shape.
You can feel your masseter muscles by clenching your teeth and feeling a slight bulge at the end of your jaw. Thinning out the masseter muscle requires a fair amount of neurotoxin, usually about 30-60 units of Botox per side to achieve visible results. These results last about 3-4 months.
Kybella to the neck and chin fat
If you have some mild excess fat, you can melt this fat with a melting agent called Kybella. The area in the double chin is considered on-label use, but getting to the very sides and back portion of your jawline may require injections that are off-label use. Depending on how much fat you have in the jaw area, you will need 1-6 vials of Kybella. The results are permanent, assuming you maintain your overall weight since the fat is physically melted.
Surgical threads to tighten loose skin
Surgical threads can be placed around your jowls to tighten your slightly loose skin. You will probably need anywhere from 4-8 threads, depending on how large your jowls are and how much loose skin you have. Surgical threads generally last 6-12 months.
Surgical options are for patients who have a moderate to larger amount of fat and loose skin around the neck and jawline areas. The main treatments are mini facelifts, liposuction or neck lift or both. Another new technology is radiofrequency energy.
Mini facelifts are less invasive than the full on surgical facelift, and leaves minimal scarring. They have the same desired outcome of a tightened, more youthful looking face and is done under local anaesthetic. However, in a mini facelift bio-compatible wires are threaded under the skin and tightened to lift the face and Botox is used on certain areas of the face. Also, dermal fillers and hylaronic acid are injected to fill out the skin and give it a plump look, and skin rejuvenation injections are also applied. A mini facelift’s effects will last around two to five years.
If you have fat that is just under the skin and not underneath your neck muscles, liposuction of the neck and jawline area can be done to remove fat and give you a nicely defined jawline. Depending on the technology used, you will have mild to moderate skin tightening with liposuction as well. Results will last years or a lifetime since the fat is physically removed.
After making incisions near your ear and behind your ear, as well as an incision underneath your chin, your neck skin is lifted up, revealing access to your neck muscles, fat and supporting structures or your neck. A neck lift allows the most access and best long-term results, because all of the structures that can make your jawline more defined – skin, fat, muscle, SMAS, salivary glands – can be addressed in one procedure to give you maximal results that will last for years.
Radiofrequency energy can tighten loose skin and, in the neck area, can be used to tighten the skin after some type of procedure, usually neck liposuction. RF can be used with other procedures to tighten your neck skin and your redraped neck skin will be more smoothly and tightly placed over your jawline.
