Jawline Contouring & Square Jaw Reduction
WHAT IS JAWLINE CONTOURING & SQUARE JAW REDUCTION?
The shape of the jaw is dependent on the bone, muscles, fat and skin the comprise it. There are many factors that affect the appearance of the jaw including genetics and lifestyle. Some people seek to enhance the shape of the jaw. The most common reason for this is usually to treat sagging of the lower face. Another common reason is if they are seeking a more defined appearance. One way to achieve this is by having non surgical jawline contouring. This can widen or narrow and shorten or lengthen the appearance of the jawline as required. Jawline contouring can also help lift and firm up the appearance of a sagging lower face. For those with a wide jaw, square jaw reduction can help produce a narrower V-shaped jawline. Ultimately, the results are dependent on your face shape, targets and the abilities of your aesthetic doctor.
WHAT CAUSES THE APPEARANCE OF A SAGGING OR SQUARE JAW?
Several structures are responsible for the shape of the lower face. These include your jaw bones, muscles and soft tissues like fat or skin. Genetics play a huge part in terms of the shape and size of these facial structures. However, beyond that there are also a number of other factors that come in to play. The main cause for lack of definition or sagging of the jawline is ageing and reduced face volume. One of the main reasons both men and women can develop a square jaw is overactivity of the chewing muscles. The most common cause of this is usually tooth grinding. Other factors that can give the appearance of loss of definition, jawline sagging or a square jaw is ageing and loss of volume in the cheeks or lack of chin prominence or neck sagging.
WHAT IS NON-SURGICAL JAWLINE CONTOURING & SQUARE JAW REDUCTION?
There are a number of non-surgical options for enhancing the jawline and reducing a square jaw. Botox injections are an effective treatment for square jaw reduction which also has the benefit of stopping teeth grinding. These Botox injections can also lift a sagging neck and hence sculpt the lower face and jawline.

Dermal fillers can directly reshape the jawline and help lift up the lower face. A combination of jawline, cheek and chin dermal fillers to contour the jawline and the whole face.
