An oval jawline is considered to be feminine and beautiful in many cultures. Overactivity of the chewing muscles can enlarge the jawline giving a more square and masculine profile.
We unknowingly contribute to this, unaware that the overlarge chewing muscles create an excessive fat or a saggy jawline. A variety of non-invasive and laser techniques can be used to slim the face with far less downtime than traditional maxillary surgery. The result is a slimmer, sharper, and more pleasing jawline.
Jaw slimming has become increasingly popular in recent years in some cultures with many people seeing a V-shaped or heart-shaped face as highly desirable. Gone are the days when wider face angles were seen to symbolize prosperity and abundance. Today, V-shaped faces, slimmer faces, are more feminine and therefore, more attractive.
Over time, our face shape changes gradually become wider at the bottom than the top. In some cases, it is a change led by age, but in others, it is due to the presence of strong bulky chewing muscles on both sides of the lower face. It is possible to slim a widened jawline using cosmetic injectable treatments.
