If your jaw or mandible is weak, receding, undefined, or sunken, it can give your face an aged and tired appearance, also making your facial expression appear grim even when you’re happy. For many people, the solution is a jawline implant, sometimes known as jaw augmentation, mandible augmentation, or mandible implants.

What Are Jawline Implants?

Jawline implants are implants, usually made from silicone or other biocompatible material that is inserted into the jawline between the muscle and bone to add volume and fullness to the area.

In most patients, Jawline implants are recommended when the lower face has lost excessive facial volume due to the aging process, weight fluctuations, bone loss, or certain other health conditions, or in cases where a receding jawline is hereditary.

What is the Purpose of Jawline Implants?

The purpose of jawline implants is to fill in the sunken or flattened jawbone area with a material that will restore volume and definition to the area.

While in most cases the implants are made of biocompatible silicone gel, in some cases, the surgeon may use the patient’s own fat tissue via a fat grafting procedure.

Jaw augmentation balances the facial appearance by restoring proper proportion to the facial features and also enhances a more masculine and youthful appearance in male patients.

Custom Jawline Implants

At Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, Dr. Bachilo is happy to provide her patients with custom Jawline implants to create a custom look that addresses your individual concerns.


Who Can Benefit from Jaw Implants?

Jawline implants are more commonly performed in men than women because men often want to emphasize a square jaw and a defined lower face.

However, for women whose faces have lost facial volume in the jaw due to the aging process, female jawline implants may also restore facial balance and rejuvenate the facial appearance.


Recovery from Jawline Implant Surgery

Following the procedure, most patients are able to return to office work within one to two weeks, but swelling gradually subsides over a period of several months. For this reason, you may not be able to fully appreciate the final appearance of your new jaw and chin for a period of three to four months until all of the swelling has totally subsided.
