A sculpted, defined jawline is one of the hottest trends in aesthetics today. In fact, this trend is so popular that it’s coined a new name – the “snatched” jawline.
This look is becoming an increasingly popular style for our favorite stars and beauty icons, leaving many wondering how they can also experience the benefits of a more contoured jawline.
Dr. Paul Vitenas, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston, helps patients achieve a snatched jawline through tailored treatment recommendations.
Read on to discover seven jawline contouring options that may be suitable for you.
What is a Snatched Jawline?
A “snatched” jawline refers to better facial symmetry and balance, which inevitably leads to an increased aesthetic appeal. It’s a term often used in the aesthetics industry and is associated with a chiseled jawline and reduced skin sagging or double chin. Achieving a snatched jawline can enhance overall aesthetics and make you appear more youthful.
7 Options for “Snatched” Jawline Contouring
There are many options available for those seeking a more defined jawline. The best choice will depend on an individual’s aesthetic goals and the extent of the desired changes. Consulting with a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery can help patients learn more about which one is the best choice for them.
1. Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation, or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of the chin, creating a more defined jaw. Chin implants are most often made of silicone rubber and are pre-formed in various shapes and sizes.
Chin Augmentation Details
This procedure is a good option for those with a receding or underprojected chin, which can create the illusion of a weak jawline. Augmenting the chin provides structural support, strengthens the appearance of the jawline, creates better facial proportions, and provides an overall more youthful and balanced facial aesthetic.
A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is designed to improve the visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and loose skin in the lower face and neck area.
A facelift smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, enhances facial contours, reduces jowls, and eliminates loose, sagging skin along the jawline and neck. It surgically rejuvenates the jawline by tightening deeper tissues and removing excess skin. The result is a sharper, more sculpted, and defined jawline, providing patients with a more revitalized facial appearance.
3. Neck Lift
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that tightens loose neck skin and repairs sagging muscle bands in the neck. Neck lift surgery helps contour the jawline by tightening neck skin, reducing excess fat deposits, and tightening neck muscles. The result creates better definition along the jaw and down the neck.
4. Botox Cosmetic
Botox cosmetic injections can help achieve a snatched jawline look by relaxing the muscles along the jaw and reducing a squared jawline appearance. Neuromodulators like Botox recontour the look of the jaw.
Botox Can Help Me Get a Snatched Jawline?
Botox relaxes the masseter and platysma muscles along the jawline to reduce width and define the look. When injected along the neck, Botox also relaxes the platysma bands that can accentuate under-chin fullness. This multi-targeted approach helps Botox smooth and slim the jawline and neck.
Like Botox, Xeomin is a neuromodulator injectable that can relax muscles along the jawline to contour and define it. Xeomin blocks signals to overactive muscles that can cause a wide jawline appearance.
Xeomin Advantages for Jawline Contouring
Xeomin smooths bulky masseter muscles and relaxes platysma bands along the neck and jaw to slim and define the area. Xeomin lasts around 3-4 months per treatment.
Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that can remove excess fat deposits under the chin and along the jawline. This minimally invasive treatment sculpts areas like the double chin to reveal a more defined jaw structure.
How Liposuction Targets a Double Chin
Liposuction can directly target and eliminate stubborn fat cells under the chin and neck area for a more chiseled jawline. This highly effective procedure removes fat with a small cannula through tiny incisions.
7. Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers can be strategically injected along the jawline and chin to add volume and definition for a snatched contour. Fillers restore facial volume, smoothing lines and wrinkles in the lower face and jaw.
Choose Radiesse for the “Snatched” Look
Radiesse is a dermal filler option designed to sculpt the jawline and restore volume in the face. Made of calcium hydroxyapatite, Radiesse stimulates collagen and adds lift that can last up to 2 years for a long-lasting, snatched jawline.
Conclusion: Best Path to the Snatched Look
Ultimately, the best cosmetic procedure for achieving a snatched jawline look depends on each individual’s unique aesthetic goals and desires. Some procedures tend to provide more dramatic and longer-lasting, while others may be less invasive. It’s always best to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon so they can help you determine the best path for you.
