Face, Neck & Jawline Contouring
The Nefertiti Neck Lift
We can work as hard as we can to look after our bodies, by maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle. We can eat well and get plenty of beauty sleep, but there are certain things that will give away our age no matter what we do. One area is our neck, which loses collagen as we age, making the skin start to sag.
At Glojas Smart Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery Centre, our In-House Plastic Surgeon does perform a neck plication for those who need to erase the signs of ageing on their neck. This would be a combination of a neck and chin liposuction and muscle modification & skin re-draping.
There are beauty regimes you can follow to help improve the tone, condition and skin laxity of your neck and décolletage. The skin in these areas is as delicate, if not more so, than that on your face.
A V-line in the face is held as a sign of beauty. With a V line we refer to a facial contour that tapers from the cheekbones to the chin. Sometimes, however, the masseters on either side of the face are so muscular that the jawline appears too broad. Men and women often consider this a desirable feature.
A wide jawline is often genetically determined and frequently observed in people of Asian descent. If the highlight of your face is such a broad jawline, it is conceivable that your cheekbones are not reaching their full potential. The correct balance between cheekbones and jawline (jawline slimming) is essential for a soft appearance and a V-shape. With the use of a Botox treatment by a highly experienced and talented Plastic Surgeon and an Aesthetic Doctor, we can achieve the appearance of a perfectly contoured jawline.
There are 3 Steps in achieving this perfection.
Step 1: Liposuction of the Chin & Neck & Buccal Fat Pad Removal
This procedure is done by our Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Mohd Ali. He is also Malaysia’s ONLY fully qualified Craniofacial Surgeon. This Liposuction procedure is done under the safest and most effective technology called a “Water Assisted Liposuction.”
Buccal fat removal – the concept of modifying the deep fat of the face from inside the mouth, is a gentle, precise and tissue-sparing procedure for facial contouring and rejuvenation. The surgery is effective for improving facial proportions, soft-tissue asymmetries and age-related lower facial heaviness.
A reduction of the buccal fat pad will result in slimmer contours of the front part of the lower face. The treatment highlights the natural definition of the underlying craniofacial architecture, providing a more defined jawline and cheekbones.
Step 2: Why contour your jawline with Botox?
After 5 weeks has passed since your liposuction and buccal fat pad removal, you can then proceed with Jawline Contouring with Botox and then followed by Radiofrequency Facial and Neck Skin Lift.
For a more visible V-line in the face, Botox can partially relax your masseter muscles. By reducing the size of these muscles, Botox slims the jawline. This in turn increases the visibility of the V-line in your face, making your face appear more youthful and slender, while emphasizing your cheekbones.
Slimming the jawline is a procedure most popular amongst people of Asian descent and those with wide mandibles. In addition, this procedure can relieve pain / teeth grinding (bruxism), which often results from an overload of pressure in highly developed masseters.
The procedure (Botox Jawline Contouring) is carried out by our experienced and licensed Aesthetic Doctors with the use of Botox injections, usually 3 injections per side. Slimming the jawline with Botox is a very gradual procedure, and results are often only visible after 8 weeks. The procedure must be repeated every 3-6 months in order to retain your jawline’s newfound slimness. However, it only takes two weeks before you should be able to feel whether the procedure effectively lifted pain symptoms and/or bruxism.
This Botox treatment does not come with any major side effects. In most cases, it constitutes a lunchtime treatment, and neither you nor your friends should be able to notice any signs of treatment. In very rare cases, some minor bruising could be visible, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
Once your masseters have undergone a Botox treatment, the end result will not be directly visible. This is because slimming the jawline with Botox is a gradual process. Results usually only appear after 8 weeks on average.
Step 3: Radiofrequency Face & Neck Skin Lift
Here at Glojas we recommend this treatment in assisting better and more effective results of jawline contouring. Once the botox jawline contouring is done. It can follow with this treatment. This treatment should be done once in 7 days for the next one month followed by once in two weeks for the second month and then once a month for maintenance. This treatment effectively tightens, contours and lifts the facial and neck skin including around the eye region & mouth region.
After the treatment
We recommend not to practice yoga or any other sport on the day of your Botox procedure. Furthermore, we ask you not to lie down during the first two hours after your treatment. Once your masseters have undergone a Botox treatment, the end result will not be directly visible. This is because slimming the jawline with Botox is a gradual process. Results usually only appear after 8 weeks on average.
