Recently I have seen so many young men interested in minor procedures to maintain a rested younger look. Many aspects of “fashionable” facial esthetics do change with women- not so much with men.
Throughout time, the young, strong, prominent jaw line has been a sign of health and strength. This has remained a constant in the past, and will certainly be a constant in the future.
As we age, both men and women tend to experience loss of bone tissue and elastic skin tone along the jaw line. Fat tissue tends to accumulate in the neck under the chin and along the collar line. Many men try to use facial hair to reestablish a sharper distinguished jaw line.
There are great long-term solutions to this issue. Limited liposuction and jaw line injections with Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, and Radiesse can reverse aging changes in under an hour with no down time and limited costs. Using local anesthetic only, most of the procedures are done in under an hour in the office comfortably and safely with great results.
Solid extended silicone implants can be placed along the lower jaw that provide a permanent improvement. In many cases this is done in combination with liposuction of the neck to maximize results.
