Jawline contouring

Jawline contouring is a procedure Dr. Kamal Alhallak (Ph.D. in Pharmacy) performs daily alone or as a part of the “mini facelift” procedure. The treatment use threads and filler to correct the pre-jowl sulcus and oral area

Dr. Kamal usually inserts between 2-6 threads on each side, depending on the case. The choice between PDO and PCL thread depends on the patient’s budget. The PCL threads are more rigid but last longer and are more expensive. The threads are loaded on a blunt cannula, about 21g and 10 cm long. The fillers of choice for the jawline contouring are something of a higher consistency, such as Juvederm Vulox, Revanesse Shape +, or Restylane Volym. Dr. Kamal might decide to inject Botox into the DAO muscle to reduce the resistance.

Cost

The cost of this procedure varies depending on how many threads are used. In this specific case, Dr. Kamal used three threads on each side. Therefore, the total cost is $900

Side effects of jawline contouring

The main side effects to be expected are bruising and swelling, which lasts up to 4-5 days but varies with each person, depending on their skin type

Results

The treatment results in tighter skin, a more defined jaw, and less saggy skin in the jowl area. The results last between 6-12 months
