1. Jaw augmentation: for a stronger jawline
There’s not much you can do to change your jawline naturally if you’re already at a healthy weight—these jaw exercises can help a little, but they’re not going to turn you into Colton Haynes. The good news is that a weaker jawline isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Studies show that women don’t necessarily want a guy with a ridiculously masculine face.
Still, a lot of men are looking for a stronger, more sharply defined jawline, especially if they work out. “I see a lot of personal trainers who want a more ‘athletic’ contour to the jawline,” Steinbrech says. “People expect personal trainers to look ripped, and a strong jaw makes you look fitter.”
There are two ways to get a stronger jawline: dermal fillers (as shown in this photo) and jaw implants. Dermal fillers are gels made of hyaluronic acid (a natural compound in your body), and are injected into your face. Fillers are cheaper than surgery, and the procedure is easy to perform—Steinbrech says he can do an entire “model makeover” with fillers in about 15 minutes—but they’re also temporary. Fillers last around six to nine months, depending upon how quickly your body breaks down the acid. Implants, on the other hand, are permanent, but the process is more involved: The doctor makes a small incision in your cheek (inside your mouth, so no scars are visible) and places a small implant in your jaw.
Jaw implants are sometimes coupled with a chin implant to square out the whole jawline. And don’t worry about losing the cleft in your chin, because surgery is a step ahead of you. “If you’ve got a dimple or a cleft in your chin, or you want one, we have custom implants for that,” Steinbrech says.Back to top
