How to Achieve a Defined Jawline

A defined jawline is one of the most sought-after results in aesthetics and plastic surgery. Chin and neck liposuction in NYC is one of the current trendy treatments, with a range of other surgical and non-surgical options available, including Volux injections and Ultherapy.

The “snatched jawline” trend shows no sign of slowing down. We’re sharing the treatments that can help you achieve a defined jawline and choose the most suitable procedure for your skin goals.

What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat from under the chin to return the definition to the jawline. This one-hour non-invasive surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia with an average surgery time of one hour.

Chin liposuction can also be used to remove fat from the jowls and cheeks. Many clients choose to double up and have a neck lift or neck liposuction to remove excess skin. It’s the ideal way to remove stubborn fat from under your chin or to treat a double chin. The procedure involves making small incisions under the jaw or ears to remove the fat with suction, which reduces the appearance of bulging in the area.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chin Liposuction

Chin liposuction in NYC is one of the most popular treatments of the year. It’s a safe way for you to achieve a snatched jawline.

What is the recovery time from a chin liposuction procedure?

Patients typically have a full recovery time of 2 weeks with minimal downtime. We recommend taking a day or two off work to recover post-procedure and to avoid exercising for the first 4 weeks. Specific post-operative instructions are provided to each patient.

Does chin liposuction leave scarring?

Incisions are made under the chin and ear during this liposuction treatment, hiding any scarring that may be created. This scarring will gradually fade over time.

What are the potential risks with chin liposuction?

The side effects and risks involved with chin liposuction are relatively low but include nerve damage, excessive bleeding and bruising, pulmonary complications, and skin infection. It’s very important to choose a professional with experience for procedures like this.

JUVÉDERM® VOLUX™ XC is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler that restores definition to your jawline with long-term results. Dr. Jennifer Levine is one of the first to bring Volux treatments to New York.

This filler is injected onto the bone of the jawline and chin to create definition by contouring your jaw to appear more lifted. Clients can notice a difference after just one treatment. Your practitioner will be able to recommend a tailored course of Volux injections to suit your face shape and skin goals.


Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to stimulate a face ‘lift’. It works within the foundational layers of SMAS and Platysma as a skin-tightening treatment that stimulates collagen production and lifts tissue to rejuvenate the skin. Unlike other non-surgical treatments, it only needs to be done once for optimal results that gradually appear over approximately 6 months. Additional treatments are typically recommended every 18 months.

These are just a few of the ways to achieve a ‘snatched’ jawline! Curious about which treatment is ideal for your jawline contouring goals? Schedule your consultation by calling 212.517.9400 to book a consultation with Dr. Jennifer Levine.
