While a square or prominent jaw may be considered a desirable trait for men, it can cause facial disharmony and an overly masculine appearance for women – especially those of Asian descent.
In these cases, Dr. Lee will likely recommend a non-invasive, non-surgical Asian jaw reduction to soften the appearance of the lower face, sculpting a more beautiful and harmonious overall look.
Why do women of Asian descent need jaw reduction?
It’s quite common for women of Asian descent to require jaw reduction because they tend to have more prominent jaw muscles than individuals in other ethnic groups. In addition, these muscles can enlarge further with excessive use, from activities such as gum chewing, teeth grinding or teeth clenching. Regardless of the cause, overly large jaw muscles can result in the lower portion of the face appearing too wide, contributing to a masculine and undesirable cosmetic effect.
An Overview of Non-Surgical Asian Jaw Reduction
In the past, an invasive and substantial surgical procedure was required to address an overly prominent and masculine jaw. However, today patients have access to an innovative and extremely effective non-surgical solution for their jaw reduction, which can be obtained using Botox Cosmetic or Dysport.
To prepare for among the best Asian jaw reduction Beverly Hills has to offer, Dr. Lee will first evaluate your facial anatomy and how it relates to the prominence, shape and size of your jaw. She will then work closely with you to compose a custom plan designed to decrease your jaw’s prominence, while also ensuring an extremely natural outcome. In working with ethnic patients, Dr. Lee is very careful to ensure the cosmetic result doesn’t necessarily strip away all traces of your ethnic identity, but rather refines it to create a more harmonious, feminine and beautiful overall look.
To perform the actual treatment, Dr. Lee will use Botox Cosmetic or Dysport to reduce the size of your enlarged jaw muscles. By injecting the medication into the muscles at multiple points, she temporarily shrinks the enlarged structures and achieves a more feminine and less prominent jawline. You can expect the entire procedure to be quick, virtually pain-free and requiring no anesthesia or downtime. In terms of results, you’ll see an immediate visible improvement in your jaw that will continue to progress over the next few months.
What to expect after treatment
Because non-surgical Asian jaw reduction is a completely non-invasive procedure, there is virtually no downtime. You are encouraged to resume your normal daily activities immediately, however you are advised to avoid exercise for at least 24 hours to prevent the Botox or Dysport from moving to an unintended location within the face. In terms of results, you can expect them to endure for at least three months, at which point you will need a follow-up treatment to ensure you’re able to maintain your beautiful and feminine new look.
Is this treatment right for you?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your jaw, and you feel it’s too large or masculine for your other features, you may be considered an ideal candidate for non-surgical Asian jaw reduction. To qualify for this procedure, you should be in between the ages of 18 and 65, and interested in a non-surgical way to achieve a softer and more feminine facial appearance. During your initial consultation with Dr. Lee, she will help you determine whether or not this treatment is in your best interest and can accomplish your precise cosmetic objectives.
