Do You Need Chin & Jawline Contouring?

It’s understandable that you would want a strong chin and jaw—they are key components of an attractive face for women and men. When your chin lacks projection or your jawline isn’t defined, it can cause the appearance of jowling, heavy cheeks, and double chin, even if you’re young and fit.

The chin, jawline, and jaw angle define the lower face by visually separating the face from the neck, and are responsible for shaping the lower face. These anatomical areas help frame the face and can determine how masculine or feminine your face looks. Fortunately, at Mabrie Facial Institute in San Francisco, our mastery of the art and science of dermal fillers means our chin and jawline contouring patients enjoy stunning results.

Our Solution: Chin & Jawline Contouring With Fillers for Jaw-Dropping Definition

At Mabrie Facial Institute, we take a surgical approach to fillers, meaning we have elevated the art, process, and administration of fillers for an exceptional experience and outcome. We specialize in chin and jawline contouring to sculpt attractive contours for these key areas and define the lower border of the face using dermal fillers. 

Considerations for the Chin 

The chin is the focal point of the lower face and in many ways is key to the attractiveness of the entire face in general. The chin shape, height, width, and projection are all important, and though they are determined by underlying bone, fat, and muscle, they are adjustable with fillers. 

The width, shape, and size are important determinants of the masculinity or femininity of the face. Masculine chins are wider, larger, and more angular than feminine chins. 

Considerations for the Jawline 

The jawline extends from the chin to the angle of the mandible, and frames the face, visually separating it from the neck. It is shaped by the underlying bone, but the prominence of the adjoining structures can affect the visibility and definition of the jawline. For example, sagging cheek skin can make the jawline less sharp. 

Mandibular Angle 

Located at the very back of the jawline curving upwards towards the ear, this is the posterior prominent point of the face. For both males and females, the prominence of the mandibular angle is important for a youthful-looking, attractive lower face. It is generally more prominent in men than women.

Masculine Chin (Wide & Chiseled)

After

A masculine chin is often described as “chiseled” and “strong”. When the chin is small or under projected the face appears round or lacking definition. A weak chin and jawline can contribute to a “baby-face” or immature-look. Fillers to the chin allow us to customize the height, width, and projection of the chin. The results are a strong, sculpted appearance with angled contours.

Feminine Chin (Narrow and V-shaped)

After

A softly, contoured chin can create a feminine, V-shape in women. The shape and size of the chin can be customized from subtle to amplified based on goals. Fillers to the chin can reshape a round face by elongating the chin to create an oval, heart, or diamond shape.

Enhance Male Jawline

A straight and contoured jawline helps define the face most notably on profile. Jawline fillers can be performed as a single procedure or added during chin contouring to correct volume deficits, asymmetry, and irregular contours. The results are smooth, defined, masculine angles that balance and enhance the face.

Enhance Female Jawline

Jawline filler in the female face sculpts, shapes, and enhances the lower face improving overall appearance most notably on profile. Patients can customize their treatment plan from subtle to strong, angular contours based on desired results. The procedure can be performed stand-alone or combined with chin enhancement.

Enhance Mandibular Angle

After

The angle of the mandible is located at the back corner of the jawline. This area of the jawline helps frame the face and create delineation between the face and neck. Beneficial to men and women, shaping the mandibular angle can anchor the profile and create facial shape.

Facial Slimming with BOTOX

The Facial Slimming Enhancer is an excellent addition to the Chin and Jawline Contour treatment. Often, bottom-heavy cheeks obscure the jawline and create an undefined transition between the face and neck. By slimming bottom-heavy cheeks we are able to alter the facial shape, making it less round and revealing more definition to the jawline.

Your Chin & Jawline Contouring Procedure 

At Mabrie Facial Institute, our Illumination 360° approach means your results will look great from any angle, in any light. We contour your chin and jawline to bring your lower face into harmony with your other features without looking unnatural or altered. Our experienced injectors carefully sculpt the chin in all 3 dimensions: projection, height, and width. We correct asymmetry, and meticulously blend chin augmentation with the adjacent jawline to create a natural appearance. Many individuals also opt to add facial slimming to their treatment plan for a more significant transformation. 

All this is carefully discussed and planned, then executed over 2 (or more) appointments for optimal results and satisfaction. 

Initial Appointment 

For the chin, the filler is placed in the different areas to build, layer, sculpt, and contour the lower face. The amount, location, type, and depth of filler are modified according to your desired results. We may use a combination of fillers and place them in locations including just under the skin, under the muscle, or on the underlying bone. Sometimes we use BOTOX® injections on the mentalis muscle in order to relax it and allow for increased projection. 

When contouring the anterior jawline, our skilled injectors place filler just beneath the skin (subcutaneous) to build and sculpt a more youthful jawline. For the mandibular angle, we place the filler just under the skin and directly on the bone to increase the prominence of the angle.

Refinement Appointment  

The refinement appointment is not optional, it is essential to creating the caliber of results our patients deserve and expect. We are careful not to place too much filler at the first appointment because it can pool and spread, causing undesirable results. By layering an appropriate amount of filler over multiple visits, we create natural definition along the jawline and a clear separation of the face from the neck.

Chin & Jawline Contouring FAQs  

How much does chin and jawline contouring cost? 

The chin and jawline contouring procedure package typically costs $4,500 at Mabrie Facial Institute. This includes your first appointment and the fillers used, as well as your second appointment and one additional syringe of filler. If additional syringes are needed, those are priced at a discount.  

We offer financing through CareCredit and Alphaeon, and qualified borrowers may be eligible for 0% financing for 6 to 12 months.    


What fillers do you use for chin and jawline contouring? 

For contouring the chin and jawline, we use fillers from the Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® families and RADIESSE®. For your procedure, depending on your specific needs and goals, we may use a combination of different fillers. Each formulation has its own unique characteristics, and our expert injectors choose the appropriate product based on factors such as depth of injection and treatment area. Learn more about your different filler options by visiting our Dermal Fillers 101 page. 


What can I expect after my chin and jawline contouring procedure? 

It’s normal to have some discomfort, swelling, and bruising for 24 to 48 hours after your treatment. Because we use the flexible, blunt-tipped microcannula and a very gentle approach, our patients have less of this than the typical dermal filler patient. Cold or warm compresses can help with your comfort. You’ll want to avoid lying face down or strenuous exercise for the first day, but other than that, you should be able to return to normal activities right away. For more information, visit our page about the recovery process

Loving my results so far! I can't wait to come back again! The staff was so friendly and made me feel welcomed and very safe. The office is beautiful and clean! I was immediately greeted and did a COVID screening with a temp check. They escorted me to my room with a beautiful view of SF. I felt pampered, and their customer service is excellent! The injector Tiffany answered all my questions and made me feel at ease, since this was my first time getting Botox. After she marked my face, she explained where and why she was placing the Botox in certain areas. My frown muscles were so bulky and I didn't like how it always looked like I was frowning even when my face was at rest. Now, I don't always look like I'm frowning! My frown muscles look less bulky, forehead looks smoother and I got a subtle brow lift -- I love it!

They are amazing here w/ customer service, amiable, listen fully to your desires, and work their hardest to bring them to fruition whether it’s the initial appointment or in my case, complementary touch up w/in set timeframe. Just for clarification, when I put “they” I mean everyone from whomever answers the phone/anyone greeting you when the elevator’s doors open and you arrive at your appointment to your departure via the elevator again. Side note: I would include the security/door men as they’ve always been pleasant to me, but they aren’t apart of this business🙂

For my first time ever getting work done on my face, this was a great experience. They made me feel at home and comfortable which eased my fear. I got my mid-area done by Kimberly and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to fly back out there for my second session! If your looking to have work done I highly recommend them, you’ll be happy you did.

I came in earlier today and got a 360 facial treatment done. Everyone in the office made me feel really comfortable. It’s a really lovely space and it’s chic but really homey. I definitely would go back and I feel safe with the results. I feel like Dr. Mabrie was very transparent about the pricing and what he would be using and where. I do still have some swelling in my chin mainly. But excited to see what it looks like when I’m healed!

Dr. Mabrie is a wizard. After extensive research across California (SF to LA and everywhere in between) for who to consult for some of my skin concerns, I chose this clinic for Dr. Mabrie's multi-faceted expertise and reviews on meticulousness. I wasn't shorted, him and his team are incredible.

I've visited Mabrie Facial Institute twice, and both visits were stellar. All staff members, from the font-line staff, to assistants, all the way up to Dr. Mabrie were kind, caring, thoughtful- I honestly just can't say enough. At no time did I feel pressured about anything. Honestly (and trust me, I'm skeptical of most people), everyone there made me feel appreciated and cared for. They were patient with my endless questions, did very careful work, and were just overall so lovely and personable. I've honestly never had such a great experience before.

I first came across Dr. Mabrie’s practice when I was reviewing the top 100 US aesthetic injectors list for 2019. While I had been to other offices in LA and NYC, I had been dying to go someplace in The Bay (where I live). Finally I had found a practice where I could draw up a beauty plan and see tangible, top of the line results. Fast forward to 2020 and I’m on my second visit with Kimberly for lower face enhancement and masseter slimming with Botox. The warmth, professionalism, and artistic vision of Kimberly and the Mabrie team is unparalleled — I highly recommend if you’ve been considering any type of cosmetic beautification, that you jump right into the chair at Mabrie Facial Cosmetics. Thanks again Mabrie team!! I love my results, and can’t wait to see you again in just a month’s time.

Previously, I've used online coupons offers which slightly improved my sunken eye look, as well as the furrows on my brow and mouth. After receiving Dr. Mabrie's facial treatment, my husband who hadn't been too impressed with my coupon treatments, immediately said, "WowI Baby, you look so beautiful!" I cannot give a greater testimonial than that. And I too share my husband's sentiment - I do look damn amazing! 🙂

I have been going to Dr. Mabrie for probably seven years and I look better than ever! I saw his online discussions of his techniques and decided, this is the doctor for me! I have not been disappointed and it's definitely worth my 2.5-3 hour drive to San Francisco to get my treatments. He and his entire staff are excellent!

Truly, the best practitioner in the Bay Area, and one who keeps up to date on new developments in the field. Since 2017, when I first went to see Dr Mabrie after noticeable loss of volume in my face, he's carefully restored me back to my younger appearance. He doesn't ever suggest unnecessary treatments or over-inject; he's not cheap (nothing in San Francisco is), but his expert approach to fillers guarantees very natural-looking results that will elicit "Oh, you're looking so great!" comments, rather than the dreaded "Got some work done, huh?" Highly recommend him!

Dr Mabrie's office was in a convenient location in Union square. It is an elegant office, I was greeted warmly. I was nervous as I had other facial experiences that I did not want to repeat. Matt gave me details on the products and answered all my questions even ones I didn't know I had. When Kimberly can in I was ready. With a steady gentle touch she made such a difference in my appearance. I am excited to get back in and continue down the path of renewal. I look like me only refreshed. Comments like you look great, had some time off? I love it!
