The jawline – beauty, differences between the sexes, aging and correction.
Dr. Weiner shows his reJAWvenation™ technique. In this patient he is using Radiesse, but also uses Restylane Lyft and Restylane Defyne. This has become one of Dr. Weiner’s most popular procedures. The jaw line naturally resorbs over time. Injecting filler makes for a much more defined jaw line, making one appear ages younger.
Nefertiti was recognized for her crisp jawline and smooth neck. Her bust is one of the most famous of the ancient Egyptian sculptures.
A razor sharp jawline and well defined ascending ramus (or gonial angle) are hallmarks of beauty, both male and female. Jowling, submental fullness, blunting of the gonial angle, and an irregular jawline are all signs of aging.
While there are many commonalities between the sexes of what constitutes an attractive jawline, there are fundamental differences as well.
I absolutely love going to the Aesthetic Clinique. I have gone here for several years now and it is my absolute favorite thing to do for myself. These women are so professional and quickly answer my questions or concerns all while keeping me completely comfortable during these procedures. If you are considering something like this for the first time, all I can say is, do it…

The age related mandibular changes lead to loss of support of the soft tissue in the lower face – falling forward and downward. Jowling and submental fat is exaggerated. The upper neck skin shows more laxity as facial skin drops into the neck.
Dr. Weiner has perfected a correction using dermal fillers which he has coined “reJAWvenation”. It is based on restoring the age related loss of bone and leads to support of the lower face soft tissues. Filler is placed along the inferior border of the mandible as well as filling the gonial notch. The gonial angle is recreated. The lower aspect of the jowl is considered the new baseline and filling is made on either side to “camouflage” the jowl. Filler is also placed along the posterior aspect of the ascending ramus. The prejowl sulcus is filled, with emphasis to include the space beneath the inferior mandibular border. The chin must also be corrected to the male/female appropriate projection and shape.
reJAWvenation offers a quick (10-15 minute) correction of the age related changes to the jawline. Improvements in jowls, upper neck, jawline, and chin can be expected. There is minimal or no downtime. Even with facelifts, jawline volume is not typically addressed and needs to be corrected either during the procedure with fat grafting, or in the office, after healing, with fillers.
