Jaw contouring and chin augmentation in Montgomery, AL

While the eyes and lips often get a lot of attention in regards to cosmetic surgery, jaw contouring and chin augmentation can not be overlooked. These procedures have the ability to achieve much better proportion and balance, and can make quite a big difference in the lower half of the face and profile. These procedures are often assisted by buccal fat removal and facial liposuction to get the best results. Our surgeons at ALPRS, Dr. Blake Raggio and Dr. Thomas Cawthon, are able to expertly and beautifully perform these procedures.

About jaw contouring

Jaw contouring in Montgomery AL can reduce the jawline for a slimmer, more V-shaped appearance, or it can bring definition to a jawline that is weak. For men, the goal of chin and jawline enhancement is often to create a defined, masculine jawline that concentrates on angles and straight lines in order to complement the natural bone structure. For women, the goal is to achieve a subtle to strong definition that accentuates the elegance and femininity of the neck. Surgical jawline contouring can be achieved with implants. An incision is carefully made near the wisdom teeth, and the implant is positioned through this incision.

About chin augmentation

Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that can help make a weak chin more prominent to improve the profile balance and overall facial appearance. This procedure can make a dramatically better change. Surgical chin augmentation is most often accomplished with soft, synthetic chin implants that, once healed, feel like natural bone. The implant is small and made of a flexible, biocompatible material that will be placed on top of your natural chin bone to build up and enhance the area.

Buccal fat excision

In some patients, a big part of jawline contouring involves buccal fat removal. The buccal fat pads are what give some people “chipmunk cheeks”. While everyone is born with these fat pads, in some individuals they are more noticeable because of genetics. Buccal fat excision removes these fat pads from inside the mouth to get rid of the “baby fat” appearance and help achieve a more defined jawline.


Facial and/or neck liposuction are also often performed to enhance the results for jawline contouring surgery and/or and chin augmentation in Montgomery AL . Liposuction is a fat removal process that uses a cannula to break up fat and suction it out of the body. This can be done on the cheeks, jowls, and neck to slim down these areas and contribute to a more sculpted jawline and a more defined chin.
