Jawline contouring Miami, When a person starts getting older from the age of 30 and above, the skin starts to lose its collagen and breakdown. The jawline, lips, and eye area show visible signs of aging. The collagen that supports the skin and holds it in position gradually loses its effect and wrinkles starts to show.

Also, poor lifestyle, smoking, excessive intake of alcohol, bad dieting, and stress can also accelerate the aging process. The elasticity of the skin reduces, the volume of the cheek begins to wear off, and facial bones start to recede which leads to fat descent and jowliness. The oval, triangular, or round face you may have when you were younger begins to change shape. The cheek and chin area begins to sag.

Jawline contouring is a procedure to remove parts of the lower jaw in order to make the lower part of the face look narrower. It is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the reduction of the mandible muscles and shaving off the sides of the jawbone.

How is the jawline contouring procedure done?

During the procedure, your surgeon will first administer general anesthesia. An incision will then be made inside your mouth in between the cheek and the gum. This is to enable the surgeon to access the mandible. The surgeon then uses specialized drills to re-shape the mandible.

The process continues until the corners of the jawline are rounded and reduced in size. A part of the mandible known as the masseter muscles may also be removed or reduced in some cases.

When the desired size of the jaw is achieved, the surgeon closes the incision with sutures and leaves a drain tube inside the jaw to prevent the accumulation of fluid.

The procedure can also be performed outside the mouth. In this case, the surgeon makes an incision of about 5cm in the outer corner of the jawline so as to access and cut the muscles surrounding the mandible. The surgeon then uses a medical saw to cut off a part of the mandible and also removes a part of the masseter muscles. The incision is then closed with sutures and a drain tube is left in the surgical site for several days to prevent the accumulation of fluid.

The procedure is generally a safe procedure. Most patients achieve a feminine face that they desire. The effect of the procedure is completely noticeable after four months to six months of the procedure.
