Fillers & Lower Face Re-contouring

Yes, fillers can be a fantastic way to re-contour the lower face. I would advise you to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist in your area to discuss which options would best suit your needs. Best, Dr. Nazarian

Volumizing Fillers Can Work Well For Shaping & Contouring The Jawline

Nowadays, in experienced hands, volumizing fillers, such as Voluma XC, Radiesse Plus and Restylane Lyft (my three go-to products in my Upper East Side Manhattan office) are routinely used to shape and contour both the anterior jawline region (the area closer to the chin) as well as the jawline region near the posterior angle of the mandible. (In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved volumizers are available, I typically opt for Emervel Volume, Teosyal Ultra Deep and Hyaluronica 2 for these purposes). 

Since it is well known that underlying poor dentition and occlusion can result in a suboptimal overall lower facial appearance, I certainly agree that best results will be obtained once you have had the dental implants. However, in the meantime, the above, properly  performed in experienced hands, should provide gratifying improvement.

Juvederm for jaw enhancement

Thank you for the good question. Juvederm as well as other fillers are excellent for enhancing the jaw area. Results usually last 6-9 months and patients are typically highly satisfied. Good luck.

Filler for jawline

Fillers can help improve the jailing but are not a replacement for some good choppers!  It is a good idea to get your teeth fixed.

Yes it can...however: read more

Yes, Juvederm is excellent for jawline contouring, both in men and in women. This technique is best used if there is a natural reduction in bone density and 'volume', in your case it would depend on the extent of the loss, as loss of dentition (teeth) maybe too much. A photo will help. 

Regardless, Juvederm can augment implants, and certainly reshape the jawline. 

All the best
