There are several options for jawline contouring procedures depending on your aesthetic goals, and Dr. Lee may combine options for optimal results.
Some of the most common procedures used for jawline contouring include:
Chin augmentation or reduction
The chin is instrumental in creating a balanced profile and facial harmony because it is an essential counterbalance to the nose. As part of jawline contouring in Beverly Hills, the chin can be modified with an implant, dermal fillers, or fat to add volume.
When the goal is to reduce the size of the chin, a jawbone reduction procedure can correct a disproportionate appearance due to a prominent chin bone. By surgically shaving down the bone, Dr. Lee can achieve a better overall face balance while improving both the front and profile views.Learn More
The neck and jawline are often the body's first parts to begin showing signs of aging. As the skin starts to sag, visual changes include:
A neck lift tightens and firms neck contours and can include a customized combination of liposuction, tightening of the platysma muscle, and lifting and trimming away lax skin. As a part of this custom combination procedure.Learn More
Excess fatty tissue underneath the neck often gives the appearance of a double chin. This excess fat is often hereditary. Submental liposuction removes the extra fatty tissue to restore a more elegant and natural neck contour. Additionally, submental liposuction can be paired with a neck lift.Learn More
Buccal Fat Removal
Reducing midface cheek volume produces a slimmer, more contoured appearance. The buccal fat pad is located in the lower part of the cheek, and significant amounts of buccal fat can make your cheeks look rounder. Buccal fat pads also sag over time and may give the appearance of fullness around the mouth. The incision for buccal fat removal is placed inside the mouth with no external scar. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia. This minimal downtime procedure reduces the size of the lower face to make the face appear slimmer.Learn More

Physical and environmental factors such as genetics, aging, and weight fluctuations can be the cause of less-than-desirable lower facial features, including:
Jawline contouring in Beverly Hills is most popular among our female patients who either want to define the jawline, or to achieve a less prominent jawline, thus allowing for a more harmonious balance with other facial features that can soften one's appearance. On the other hand, jawline contouring is most popular among male patients who wish to create a stronger, sharper, and more square-shaped jawline. Healthy adults with realistic aesthetic goals and expectations are likely potential candidates. Ideal candidates also have a suitable amount of skin elasticity.
The recovery period for jawline contouring varies according to the procedure that is performed:
Chin Procedures: After your chin reduction or augmentation, you should take it easy for up to two weeks. You can do light activities but avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise, and bending over.
Submental Liposuction: You may experience slight bruising, tenderness, and tightness that will resolve within ten days. Additionally, Dr. Lee will provide a compression garment to contour the neck.
Neck Lift: Following a neck lift, you must sleep with your head elevated, keep yourself hydrated, and follow Dr. Lee’s post-op instructions. You should take up to two weeks off work and don’t lift anything or exert yourself during this time. The PERK team will provide you with a detailed and customized post-op plan.
Buccal Fat Removal: The recovery is minimal with most patients returning to work the next day. Swelling is to be expected immediately after the procedure and the majority of the swelling takes a month to resolve. You need to maintain a soft food diet during the first few days after surgery, and a special mouth rinse may be recommended.
After a successful recovery following jawline contouring surgery, you’ll notice a chiseled jawline and a slimmer and more youthful face. These visible improvements will progress up to one year post-procedure but depend on the jawline contouring method you select with Dr. Lee.
