Hi I'm currently in my early thirties I'm bothered with my facial contour. My face looks long,my cheekbones stick out and the curve on my mandible sit very low. When I look in the mirror my face seems better in proportion when I smile. There is less space between the nose and mouth. My mandible appear wider and more in sync with my cheekbones. I'm not 21anymore. Im afraid to get implants cause Im afraid I'll look shallow. Could some injectable give volume there? What procedures could help me?
Is It Possible to Change the Facial Contour?

Facial contouring can be achieved using a combination of non-surgical techniques, including fillers and botox/dysport to achieve a natural and balanced result. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can properly evaluate you and assist you in achieving the results you seek.

Changing facial contour
Yes, there are many options, but you would need to post pictures or be seen in person to give you specific recommendations. However, products such as Botox and fillers such as Sculptra, Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane and fat grafting can all be use to improve facial structure. There are also more invasive methods such as facial implants which can be used to alter facial structure. I would suggest consulting with your local board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
