This third course of a three-part series addresses techniques and recommendations for aesthetic treatment of the lower third of the face. The lower face is considered an advanced area for facial aesthetic treatment. In this region, soft-tissue fillers play a more important role than neuromodulators and should be used first to provide structure and support. Treatment of the lip, perioral region, and chin, in addition to maintaining balance of the lower face with the face overall, is challenging.
Procedures on the lip should avoid overcorrection while respecting the volume and the projection of the lips on the profile view and the ratio of lip size to chin. The chin is often neglected, but reshaping the jawline can provide dramatic improvement in facial aesthetics. Both profile and anterior views are critical in assessment and treatment of the lower face. Finally, rejuvenation of the neck region requires fillers for structural support of the chin and jawline.
