Our chin and jawline create a very important impression to the rest of our facial features. Having a chin and jawline that fits your face truly does create a harmony amongst the remaining facial features and reveal your individual beauty. Patients often tell us that they are seeking to improve their appearance because of a chin or jawline that is too soft, which accentuates their nose, or too strong, which affects the balance of the remaining facial features.

The philosophy of our practice in La Jolla is to restore the harmony and balance amongst your facial features to showcase your unique beauty. Sometimes making subtle adjustments to your chin and jawline have very powerful and natural aesthetic effects. Dr. Malone uses minimally invasive surgical techniques to provide chin augmentation and jawline contouring in San Diego and La Jolla, whether accentuating to strengthen your profile or a reduction to soften the facial angles. Often times, no incisions are made on the skin and Dr. Malone can create the natural outcomes that you are seeking from hidden internal minimally invasive incisions in the mouth.
