Male Jawline Filler Contouring

The last few years have seen a growth in popularity of dermal filler treatments to enhance the jawline, particularly among male patients looking to improve the projection and definition for more striking facial features.

This treatment is an excellent choice for those looking to add a little to their natural profile. Relatively small amounts of dermal filler product can make a big difference in how the jaw shape balances within the overall structure of the face.

    For male patients, the use of jawline filler can help to deliver a more masculine and chiseled jawline worthy of Hollywood – yet all without the cost, inconvenience and risk of surgery. It is a relatively simple and straightforward procedure from the patient’s perspective. However, from the point of view of the person delivering it, the jawline filler treatment is a lot more complex than other dermal filler treatments, such as lip filler.

    That’s why for best results we recommend a practitioner who his medically qualified and who understands how the essential anatomical components of bone, muscle, fat and other tissues interrelate in this specific area.

    Anatomical components of the jawline

    The main anatomical components that give the jawline its shape are

    • The mandible: The mandible is the lower jawbone. It is actually the largest bone in the human skull and has some important functionality. It holds the lower teeth in place and also assists in chewing. It provides attachment for several important muscles. The mandible is a U-shaped bone that forms the lower part of the face and the jawline. The shape of the mandible is largely determined by genetics, but it can also be affected by factors such as diet, exercise, and age. The angle and shape of the mandible provides the foundational structure of the jawline shape.
    • Masseter and temporalis muscles: The masseter muscle is a large muscle that runs from the cheekbone to the lower jaw. Along with the temporalis muscle, it is responsible for chewing and clenching the jaw. The size and shape of the masseter and temporalis muscles, greatly contribute to the appearance of a strong or defined jawline
    • The zygomatic bone: The zygomatic bone, also known as the cheekbone, is a paired bone that forms the prominence of the cheek. The shape and size of the zygomatic bone can also affect the appearance of the jawline. The relation of this bone to the mandible provides shaping
    • Superficial fat pads: These are important to how the jawline looks. If your body fat percentage is too high, then accumulation of fat around the jawline will make it lose definitions, so that the face appears round and soft. A rounder face smoothes out masculine features. It can also be the cause of double-chin.
    • The skin: The skin of the jawline is also an important factor in its appearance. The skin on the jawline is typically thinner than the skin on other parts of the face, which can make it more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging.

    Aging and changes in body weight can also affect the shape of the jawline by altering the underlying fat, muscle distribution and even bone density.

    What defines a masculine jawline?

    There are several key points that distinguish male and female jawlines. These include:

    • Shape: Male jawlines are typically more angular and defined than female jawlines. This is due to the fact that men have larger and more pronounced mandibles, as well as thicker skin and less fat on their faces.
    • Width: Male jawlines are also typically wider than female jawlines. This is due to the fact that men have wider cheekbones and a larger masseter muscle.
    • Chin: Male chins are typically more prominent than female chins. This is due to the fact that men have a more pronounced gonial angle, which is the angle formed by the lower jawbone and the cheekbone.
    • Facial hair: Let’s not forget that males typically have more facial hair, which can further accentuate their jawline and add to their masculine appearance.

    These key points can give men’s faces a more rugged and masculine appearance, while women’s faces typically have a softer and more feminine appearance.

    Jawline filler

    To add volume, shape and definition, Jawline Filler using Dermal Fillers is the most common option. It has potential to sculpt and shape the area to create a stronger and more defined jawline shape. 

    Results are instant and you’ll see straightaway how the delicate injection of filler makes the chin and jawline look sharper. The finished effect will last several months, at which time the procedure can be repeated.

    When should I consider BOTOX in the jawline?

    For some patients, BOTOX® anti-aging injections may be recommended to improve the jawline. These work to relax the muscles lower down in the face which make the upper muscles stronger. This essentially is used to contour or slim the jawline and create a more angular appearance. This is often done for those who have a square or overly prominent jawline.

    After around 7-14 days, the anti-aging injections will settle in, allowing the tightening and lifting will take place.

    How to enhance the ideal male jawline

    There is no one definitive answer to this question, as the ideal male jawline will vary depending on individual preferences. However, there are some general guidelines that can be used to define an attractive jawline.

    • Jawline width: The jawline width is the distance between the cheekbones at the point where they meet the lower jawbone. An ideal jawline width for men is typically between 12-14cm. This helps to create a wide and masculine jawline.
    • Chin projection: The distance between the bottom of the chin and the front of the neck can also influence the appearance of the jawline. In males, a more projected chin is generally considered more desirable. An ideal chin projection for men is typically between 6-8mm. This helps to create a balanced and proportionate jawline.
    • Gonial angle: This is the angle formed where the mandibular bone meets the temporal bone in the skull. An ideal gonial angle for men is typically between 120°-130°. This angle helps to create a strong and masculine jawline. In males, a larger gonial angle is generally associated with a more masculine or angular jawline.
    • Mandibular plane angle: This is the angle formed between the plane of the mandible (the lower jaw) and the plane of the skull. In males, a lower mandibular plane angle is often considered more desirable, as it creates a more prominent chin and jawline.

    These guidelines are only one facet of determining the optimum shape of the jawline. An ideal male jawline should be sculpted and defined, with a smooth curve from the cheekbones to the chin. The jawline should also be free of any sagging or jowls. The ‘rules’ of angles and dimensions are only part of creating the finished result. In planning jawline enhancement, it’s always equally important to also consider the overall effect in the context of the patient’s face and to consider their personal preferences.
