What Causes a Weak Jaw?
There are many factors that can cause a weak jawline. Weak chin, receding chin, or small face are all physical characteristics often associated with the appearance of a weak jawline. Other considerations can be aging. As you age your facial structure can change and you may accumulate fat in your neck or chin and your skin may begin to droop. Genetics can play a role in the structure of your jawline and chin, you may have inherited your bone structure from your family. Having an overbite can also cause your jawline to recede.
Treatment for a Weak Jaw
There are several treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. At your consultation, Dr. Tantawi will let you know what is the best recommendation for your particular treatment plan. Below are the options for correcting a weak jaw:
Dermal Fillers and Botox
Dermal Fillers are a gel, usually made from hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance made by the body. By injecting the dermal filler into the right areas, your jawline can be filled in. Dermal fillers usually last from 12-18 months, and are a non-surgical way to address a weak jawline.
Botox is another option to correct a weak jaw. By injecting Botox into the masseter muscle of your jaw, the muscle begins to become smaller. This gives your jawline a slimmer and more v-shaped look.
Liposuction is a treatment where fat is suctioned from your neck, jawline and sometimes your chin. By reducing the fat in these areas, the jawline becomes slimmer and more pronounced. Liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment with little downtime. The procedure is done by Dr. Tantawi, and consists of making a small incision where a calendula is inserted and the fat is suctioned out. The incision is then sutured up. Because the incision is so small , there is no scarring.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that lifts the skin on your neck and contours and tightens the skin and muscle in the neck area. It can also include liposuction of the fat in the neck, chin and jawline. This results in a more defined, slimmer, neck and jawline. There is a considerably longer downtime with a neck lift. Recovery usually takes 7- 10 days.
