Fillers for Jaw Enhancement

Postby NicoWild » Thu Sep 01, 2011 1:33 am

Does anyone have experience with getting fillers on the mandibular angle for width and height? First of all, is it worth it and what filler would you recommend?

I recall seeing a photo of a guy who'd had botox injected straight into the mandible angles and the results were great. They got a great square look from frontal view!

I have read elsewhere on this board that Radiesse is good for this. Also some people have had hydroxy apatite and have been pleased with it.

Firstly, Botox will, over time, reduce the size of the jaw muscle, not increase it.
After my jaw implants, I had a couple of cc of PMMA injected into one side to balance it out. I got maybe 2mm of additional projection from that 2cc. So, not something I would recommend for signifcant enhancement. PMMA is not something I would recommend to someone who isn't certain how to proceed, I would recommend Restalyene, But Radiesse would probably be ok, I have never used it.

I've been reading up on the subject, and Radiesse seems like the best option. It will last at least 12 months and apparently gives a more 'hardened', natural look than a soft filler like restylane might.

I'd be far too scared to go for PMMA, Aquamid or any other permanent filler. A lot of them are FDA approved, but they still don't know what's going to happen 10 years down the track. People have suffered nightmares at the hands of aquamid. That's not even considering the leap of faith it would take to put your trust in a surgeon for something that big.

had juvederm into jaw angle
half syringe on each side
very good

then 6 weeks later had another half syringe on each side
(hyaluronics are reported to last longer if you receive a top-off within the first few months)

now 7 months later
still good definition

cut face look

to be honest, i have strong jaw to begin with
wanted width at angle

totally worth it

dr. usually used radiesse for this but i wanted it to be reversible if i didn't like it

My dermatologist put some radiesse in my jaw and I didn't like the texture. It was kind of lumpy and stayed in the two spots in which he injected it. More recently, I had a consult w/a PS who recommended fat grafting. I had some of this to my cheeks a few years ago with great results. Now, the PS thinks he can fill and reshape my jaw most effectively with my own fat. He thinks I will get the most bang for my buck with this.

I decided to get my jaw contour fixed with the help of Juvederm fillers last summer. I was quite satisfied with the result. I consider it to be better than surgery. Why should people decide to undergo surgery if there are lots of multifarious dermal filler, which may be used to treat probably all the cosmetic problems?

I agree. I also got my jawline shaped with the help of dermal fillers. For sure the effect is not permanent, but even if something goes wrong, it can be fixed, moreover without any surgery.
