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.

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor
Megan Shea

Dr. Bachilo is an incredible doctor and has a very friendly and kind personality. I had been to many plastic surgeons and none made me feel comfortable and respected the way she did when talking with her. I will continue to see her no matter where I am in the U.S. - Google

Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Bachilo performed this procedure on me in March 2019. I am a 50-year-old female, 5‘4“, 170 pounds. Dr. Bachilo removed 10 L of fat, which is a very aggressive surgery. I felt comfortable with her, and asked her to push the limits, which she did. I spent the night in the hospital as a precaution as my blood pressure dropped and needed to be stabilized and monitored. Dr. Bachilo is excellent bedside manner. She checked on me several times during the day and night before I left. I am now 8 days post-op and pleased with the results. - RealSelf

She has been wonderful
Lindsey Coats

Dr. Bachilo has now completed an arm lift and thigh lift for me. She has been wonderful with me through both procedures and her work is remarkable. I have asked a lot of her throughout both procedures that are difficult enough without me asking her to go above and beyond. She continues to deliver truly incredible results. - Google

I recommend Dr.bachilo!!!

I Am so Thankful We Found Olga!
Elvira V.

I am so thankful we found Olga! She has changed my life! I've gotten breast augmentation with Olga, I went to 3 different surgeons for a consultation and the moment I met Olga my mom and I both knew she was the one. She was so personal, warm and made me feel like my concerns were her priority! She was always there for me, before and after the surgery. Answering my late night texts and making sure I was in a good place. My mom has also gotten treatments at their med spa and she couldn't be happier with her results. All the staff are very sweet, kind and welcoming! I would highly recommend this place! - Yelp
