more masculine jawline, help!
what would be the best option to get a better jawline? i would also like to have my cheeks more defined. what kind of surgery would be the best option for me? Jaw augmentation or chin augmentation?

I also have a small overbite. Would braces help define my jaw once my overbite is fixed? and if so, would invisalign be able to do the same as conventional braces? thanks for your response

You are masculine enough in the way you look. Behavior is more important. If you like the appearance of someone you think you look like and wish to be more like them. Send me an email and I will make a recommendation.
Good luck from NYC

there are non surgical options as well  May 8, 2013 12:32 PM

to get the effect you are thinking of, augmentation of the angle of the jaw would be the best first move. it will give you a better jawline. i would also think about a bit of chin augmentation to give more volume to your chin. you can do these things surgically, but you can also do them both with filler. its a simple injection and the results last for 10 to 12 months with radiesse. if you like it, there is a permanent filler option.
