Will Cryolipolysis help to define my jawline (make it more V shaped)/decrease fat under my chin and in lower cheeks? (Photo)

Im 34 years old woman with a round jaw line.It is not as defined probably due to the submental fat. It almost looks like the bottoms of my cheeks are hanging down a bit (although I dont have a sagging face) and it looks as though I might have a bit of double chin. Shape of my jawline is U rather than V with tapering jaw. I am not up for invasive procedures. Can the Cryolipolysis help me? Could it decrease fat under jawline? Do I need one applicator right under my chin or two on the sides? Thanks

Thank you for your question. You may be a good candidate for the CoolMini, however, it is difficult to say without assessing you. I would recommend seeing a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation. This way, you can explain your concerns, learn more about different procedures, and find an option that works for you. An in-person assessment is always best.  Regards,

Cool Mini

You look to be an excellent candidate for the Cool Mini, and then consider a bit of filler in the pre-jowl hollow (a hyaluronic) for a further improvement in your jawline. A template can be used to show the area that will be treated, and base your decision on whether a second treatment is needed on the 2-3 month results after the first.
Best of luck!

Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting to define a jawline

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Dear Aneta.valova,

Thank you for sharing your photos.

Working with non-surgical options only,  the Cool-Mini applicator has been very successful for the  sub-mental neck. Using the Cool-Mini under the jawline may give you the sharper "V" shaped contour you seek. 

Also, consider a new non- and minimally invasive option called ThermiRF.

ThermiSMOOTH uses serial treatments on top of the skin non-invasively to deliver massage-like controlled heating of the deep dermis where skin is shrunk and a natural stimulation of collagen is produced.

ThermiTIGHT™ is a non-surgical , minimally invasive procedure. It is the first cosmetic procedure that delivers controlled and monitored thermal energy under the skin. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin and radio-wave energy is used directly on the dermis and fat with immediate shrinkage and longer term collagen formation. 

Consider a Obagi ZO Skin Health Therapeutic Skin regimen for continued skin rejuvenation.

Consult with a well experienced and Board Certified Plastic Surgery Team with certification in the above therapeutic procedures.

Good luck!

Cryo lipolysis vs Infini

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
My opinion, Cryolipolysis is excellent for the fat underneath the chin. If you are looking to sculpt your cheeks and jowls as well as remove some of the fat underneath the chin, I have found that Infini is more successful. Furthermore, Infini can tighten the skin underneath the fat pockets down to the base of the neck. Look for a doctor who has experience with treatment of the neck. Ask to see pictures. Hope this helps. Good luck.
