Are you unhappy with the shape of your jawline? Do you wish you had a more contoured jawline or a stronger chin? Are you eating healthy and getting lots of exercise, but can’t seem to get rid of that double chin?
Your jawline can have a huge influence on your appearance; for example, a slim person who is genetically predisposed to having more submental tissue (in other words, underchin fat) may feel as though they look larger than they are. As another example, having a weaker jawline may influence how others perceive you, which is especially true for men.
Fortunately, there are a number of chin reshaping procedures that can help individuals get the jawline they’ve always wanted – and they’re all at Total Dermatology in Irvine, CA. Take a look!
- Chin augmentation: If you have a weak chin, a chin augmentation procedure can help your jawline look stronger and more contoured. This procedure involves inserting a small silicone implant underneath the chin in such a way that adds structure and shape to the jawline. The surgical incision is placed directly underneath the chin, so it shouldn’t be noticeable. The procedure is straightforward and involves minimal recovery, so it’s an excellent solution for patients looking for a no-fuss approach to chin reshaping.
- CoolSculpting Mini: This non-surgical solution uses CoolSculpting’s small handheld device to target and freeze fat cells within the submental tissue. Once these fat cells are frozen, they break down and are removed via the body’s waste processes. The end result is a significant reduction in chin fat; in some studies, fat cells were reduced by up to 24%.
- Kybella: This FDA-approved injection contains deoxycholic acid, a compound that eats away at fat cells while preserving surrounding healthy tissue. Kybella is an excellent solution for candidates who have underchin fat and haven’t seen results from diet and exercise. Most patients only need 1-2 Kybella injections to see a significant reduction in underchin fat.
