The Jaw line is one of the very prominent features of the face and can add contour and balance to the whole face. In the past decade this has received a lot of attention from the aesthetic medical fraternity towards enhancing and contouring and making the jawline look sharper and more defined. There were many ways even before that for jawline shaping but they were mostly surgical procedure and involved pain and recovery time.
In the recent past there have been many innovations, which have led to excellent results in jawline shape enhancement without surgery. There are many non surgical options now for treating the jawline.

Remember each face and jawline is very unique and deserves a customised plan of treatment indeed.
A combination of methods to contour the jawline can be used like, Ultherapy or H.I.F.U, Threadlift, Fillers, these need to be done at the right place and right time for the right person, only then there will be the desired success.
The fillers have a lifting effect , but for a patient with a very “chubby” jawline, a thredlift with or without ultherapy will be a better option.
