In Singapore, body contouring is a popular beauty option for men and women wanting to change the shape of their face, mid-section, arms, or legs. The visual proportions of a V-shaped face have become increasingly popular in Singapore in recent years in particular. A V-shape face treatment is characterised by high, tight cheekbones and a small chin.
V-shape surgeries and cosmetic procedures aim to eliminate or greatly reduce the appearance of a double chin, soften the wrinkles and crow’s feet that accumulate around the eyes, smooth out scarring, and tighten the skin around the cheekbones.
Getting the V-Shape with Surgery
Generally speaking, there are two ways that surgeons help their clients obtain a V-shaped face. Some aestheticians elect to perform a surgery on their patient where they cut and restructure the jawbones into a V-shape. Although this particular procedure leaves very little superficial scarring, it is very invasive and expensive. And, depending on how much restructuring needs to be done, the recovery process can last several months.
The V-Shape Face and Botox
People looking to avoid jawbone reduction surgery should consider V-face treatment that uses Botox injections and filler to achieve the right look. The benefits of avoiding surgery are numerous: Botox requires no cutting, nor does it leave scars. Another advantage of going the Botox route is that patients report seeing V-shaped results in as little as 3 days following the procedure.
To reduce the jawbone using Botox, the aesthetician needs to make between 3 and 6 injections on each side of the face along the patient’s jawline. These Botox injections will begin to atrophy the patient’s jaw muscle. In time, the size and appearance of the chin will be greatly reduced.
From there, the aesthetic centre in Singapore will inject the patient’s chin with artificial filler to achieve the chin and jaw shape the patient desires. Hyaluronic acid is used by the surgeon to give shape to the patient’s renovated chin.
Hyaluronic acid is an organic substance that is found in many different areas of our body. More specifically, we have hyaluronic acid in our joints and eyes, as well as in the layers of our skin. Hyaluronic acid’s organic properties make it completely safe for all contouring procedures.
Possible Side Effects with Botox
Another benefit of choosing to contour your face using a combination of Botox and hyaluronic acid is that the serious side effects associated with jawline surgery are non-existent. In fact, most patients report that the most serious side effect they suffer from the Botox injections is a light bruising near the injection sites on the chin.
Slight swelling around the cheeks and chin is also possible, though these side effects are usually very minimal and always temporary.
Nose Contouring with Hyaluronic Acid
Depending on a patient’s desires, some people choose to contour their nose with hyaluronic acid, too. The acid is injected into the bridge of the nose. Injecting the filler at the bridge of the nose allows the surgeon to more easily reshape the nose to the patient’s preferences.
