An Enhancer for a More Youthful Jawline

Jowls, fullness, and general lack of definition are among the most frequent concerns we hear from people seeking a Lower Face Rejuvenation package at our San Francisco practice. While this package targets the chin, anterior jawline, and pre-jowl skin, some patients may want to amplify their results by adding our posterior jawline enhancer for the ultimate contoured, defined lower face.

What’s Going On?

Many people lose bone density with age, and this can cause the posterior bony angle of the jaw to decrease in prominence. This flattens the posterior jawline from an “L” shape to an almost straight line, which we associate with aging or being overweight. The angle of the jaw may also move up and forward.

The lack of prominence in the posterior jawline can leave the lower face looking undefined. When we improve the definition and contour of this area, it creates a more youthful, attractive appearance.

Our Solution: Posterior Jaw Enhancer Treatment

Most individuals don’t realize how much their jawline is impacting their appearance until we rejuvenate this area with fillers. We use fillers from the JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® families and strategically place them along the jawline and at the angle of the mandible. It is very important that this treatment is staged over 2 (or more) appointments. Too much filler at once can pool and create additional heaviness in this area.

Your Jaw Enhancement Procedure

Jawline fillers are staged over 2 or more appointments for optimal results. At the initial appointment, we restore volume to the larger anatomical areas, creating a foundation for the more subtle refinements we make at your second appointment.

In 1 to 3 months, you return for your refinement appointment. You will receive additional filler to the posterior jaw area. If your treatment was part of a package, we will make refinements to other areas as well. Results in the jaw area tend to last approximately 9 to 12 months.

Jawline Contouring FAQs

How long do jawline fillers last?

Jawline fillers typically last 12 to 15 months. Our goal is to  extend the duration of your filler results, so we take a phased approach that anticipates filler breakdown. We create a personal treatment plan for each of our facial contouring patients that includes touch-up treatments 1 or 2 times a year. This keeps the results looking fresh, and reduces the amount of filler needed per treatment.

How much does jawline contouring with fillers cost?

At MFI in San Francisco, the price of jawline contouring can range from $1,000 to $2,000, depending on several factors. If you see one of our PA Injectors, the fee is $1,000 if added on to another treatment package, and $1,400 as a standalone treatment (posterior jawline only). If you see Dr. Mabrie, the fee is $1,200 when added to another treatment package, and $2,000 as a standalone treatment. Additional syringes of filler used at your refinement appointment are offered at a discounted price of $500-$600. For a complete list of filler treatment package prices, please visit our Procedure Pricing page. 

Are bruising, swelling, and firmness normal for jawline filler recovery?

Yes, bruising, swelling, firmness, lumps, bumps—all of these are normal after jawline filler treatment. These may even appear unevenly or asymmetrically. That’s also normal. These typically peak within 24 to 48 hours of your treatment, but can last to some degree for up to 4 weeks. We recommend cold compresses on day one, then warm compresses intermittently after that. Visit our page about understanding the recovery process for more tips. The most important advice is to try and relax and be patient—your results will be worth it!
