A sharp, chiseled jaw can be a sign of strength and masculinity, while a soft, rounded jaw may help accentuate a feminine face and features. Achieving these features can be a goal for many men and women, and there are many routes you can take to do so.

One of the most popular methods of jaw contouring is through makeup and beauty techniques. Facial putty and using contrasting shades, for example, can give the illusion of a different shape or size in your chin.

Temporary solutions may not be for everyone, especially those who want to avoid a lengthy morning routine every day. Thankfully, there are many other solutions for patients who seek jaw contouring that can be permanent or long-lasting. At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery, we offer patients a myriad of options, ranging from non-invasive to cosmetic surgery. Our facility welcomes patients from all over Michigan, including Grand Rapids, Birmingham, Detroit, and Kalamazoo.

What is Jaw Contouring?

Jaw contouring is a term that describes a form of cosmetic enhancement that focuses on altering the size, shape, or sharpness of the jaw. Whether you are hoping to achieve a slimmer jaw contour or enhance your profile for a sharper jawline, Dr. Bengtson, Dr. Alfonso and their team can help.

When it comes to jaw contouring Grand Rapids' Bengtson Center can perform various techniques and procedures, depending on what a patient needs, and the approach can vary slightly for everyone.

If you feel your jaw does not flatter the rest of your face or you would like to see a different jaw shape or chin structure, jaw contouring procedures can help you achieve your desired result.
