Bring Your A-Game to Your Face
Donít let weak facial contours define you! Men, take control of your look by bringing more definition to your jawline, your cheeks, your chin, or all of the above. Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Bengtson uses advanced surgical and nonsurgical techniques to enhance the cheek, chin, and jaw with fillers and fat transfer for men in his Grand Rapids practice. He also offers more nonsurgical treatments—including CoolSculpting®, Kybella®, ThermiTight®, and Ultherapy®—that can further enhance a man's look by getting rid of problem fat or sagging tissue. These procedures help men obtain a strong jawline and chin: chiseled and confident features that can have a profound effect on both appearance and self-confidence.
At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, the latest dermal fillers and other modern treatments can enhance a chin that is small or recessed, define a weak or hidden jawline, and balance the lower portion of the face with other facial features. Overall, Dr. Bengtsonís goal with chin and jaw enhancement for men in Grand Rapids is to achieve symmetry and harmony for an appearance that is uniquely and naturally yours. He draws on his years of experience with a range of solutions and knowledge of facial structure to craft a solution that is uniquely yours.
What is Cheek, Chin, or Jaw Enhancement?
Jaw enhancement for men at our Grand Rapids practice involves using a combination of injectables and other nonsurgical procedures to enhance the angles, size, or projection of facial features, including reshaping the fullness and contours of the cheeks and mid-face to redefine flat or hollow cheeks. Volume-adding injections may be made up of dermal filler or a patient's own fat, which is often used to provide a more long-lasting solution.
What Are the Available Nonsurgical Options?
Nonsurgical techniques for chin, cheek, or jaw enhancement have become increasingly popular since the launch of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA®, which is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Another volumizing option involves removing fat from one area with liposuction, processing it, and then injecting the refined, high-quality fat where necessary on the face. This is particularly suited for men who want a significant volume increase.
Enhancing a masculine profile can involve more than just augmenting a chin. Sometimes, the process requires eliminating stubborn fat or loose tissue that provides too much padding and creates a soft, round, or even drooping appearance where a chiseled, angular look is preferred.
CoolSculpting® destroys fat by chilling it down and leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. While this technology can be applied all over the body, there's a particular applicator designed especially for tackling double chins. Using the CoolMini™, Dr. Bengtson can eliminate submental fullness over a series of sessions that require no incisions or injections. The process requires no surgical recovery, so you can get it done and get out, letting your body take over the work of slimming down as you go about your daily activities.
Another option for losing neck fat that collects below the chin, Kybella® is an injectable that disrupts the fat cells it encounters, triggering a natural process that removes them from the body and reduces submental fullness. That means no more double-chin, also with no surgery. Results are gradual, but require no extra effort on your part after the initial treatments. Just work, play, or do whatever you want while your body efficiently deals with getting rid of the extra fat.
Even with unwanted fat gone, lax tissue can still make what should be a sleek jawline appear soft and flabby, since loose folds of skin due to volume loss and facial aging can create a turkey neck. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to tighten this sagging skin, stimulating collagen and forming a firmer, more defined profile.
Some men choose heat to firm up loose skin on the neck and lower face. ThermiTight® delivers energy into subdermal tissues, pulling skin tight and providing more definition. It's both powerful and gentle—making visible changes without the need for recovery after a treatment session.
These noninvasive treatments can be used alone, combined, or employed to complement any cheek, chin, and jaw enhancement or related procedure.
Why Might Cheek, Chin, or Jaw Enhancement Be Recommended for Me?
Looking young and improving facial harmony may be attained through cosmetic procedures. A cheek, chin, or jaw enhancement for men at our Grand Rapids practice can enhance a small or recessed jaw or chin, define a weak or hidden jawline, and provide contour to a mid-face that is flat or lacking volume.
