Jawline Filler Injection Technique by Dr. Tina Ho
I routinely inject filler along the jawline in both younger and older patients to enhance jawline definition and optimize facial rejuvenation. I counsel patients that this procedure often requires multiple syringes of filler for ideal results. I typically perform jawline filler injection via needle technique to minimize patient bruising, swelling, and discomfort.

Neurotoxin Masseter Injection with Dr. Tina Ho
Dr. Tina Ho routinely performs neurotoxin injection to the masseter muscles to help relieve pain from teeth grinding or jaw clenching associated with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction. The injection weakens the masseters and reduces muscle tension. As it atrophies the masseter muscles, the treatment also produces a slimming effect to the lower face. Patients with a round or square-shaped face often seek out this treatment to help achieve a more narrowed or tapered appearance to their face.
Neurotoxin Masseter Injection with Dr. Tina Ho
My favorite injectable procedure for myself is Botox to the masseter muscles. I personally suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, where I chronically grind my teeth or clench my jaw often due to stress. Botox injection weakens the masseters and reduces muscle tension. I routinely perform this injection on my patients as well. – Dr. Tina Ho
Cheek Filler Injection Technique by Dr. Tina Ho
Cheek augmentation is all the rage and is always in season. The cheeks are my favorite area to treat with filler injection. Cheek filler injection nicely enhances volume and projection to the cheeks for that “oomph” lifting effect, softens nasolabial folds, helps minimize dark circles around the eyes, and can even accentuate the cheekbones laterally. I typically perform cheek filler injection via needle technique to minimize patient bruising, swelling, and discomfort. – Dr. Tina Ho
Deep Plane Facelift and Neck Lift: Before and After
This kind 45 year-old female patient presented originally for chin liposuction consultation, bothered by the fullness under her chin. I instead recommended a definitive deep plane facelift and neck lift for the best facial and neck rejuvenation and contouring results. She already looks amazing at three months out in these before/after photos. Final outcome is seen at six to twelve months after surgery. We are so thrilled with her results.

Nasal + Facial and Jawline Contouring Surgery: Before and After
This wonderful male patient in his 30s came to me for consultation, interested in surgery to enhance his nasal contour as well as facial and jawline contour. We pursued multiple procedures at the time of his surgery including rhinoplasty with ear cartilage graft to augment his radix (upper nasal bridge), refine his nasal tip, and decrease his nostril width, buccal fat reduction for facial slimming, and chin liposuction with implant for jawline and neck contouring. The after photos illustrate his surgical outcome one year later. We are so thrilled with his beautiful, natural results.

What is Jawline Contouring?
Jawline filler injection may be performed alone or in conjunction with other injectable procedures such as neurotoxin injection to the masseter muscles to narrow the lower third of the face. Dr. Ho can further improve the jawline with liposuction of the neck. Jawline contouring requires the expertise of a surgeon who specializes in plastic surgery of the face and understands facial anatomy well. Dr. Ho is highly experienced in filler injections and performs each procedure in an artistic manner according to the anatomic features and aesthetic goals of the individual patient.

Mini Neck Lift, Neck Lift, and Jawline Contouring
Surgical Jawline Contouring: Before and After
This lovely patient was concerned by the fullness of her upper neck and lack of jawline definition as well as her nasal hump. She originally saw me for consultation for chin liposuction but was ultimately better suited for mini neck lift surgery. Based on her genetics and face/neck anatomy, this patient not only required removal of superficial fat below her chin but more importantly deeper sculpting including resuspension of her neck muscles (platysmaplasty) and deeper fat and gland removal below the muscle layer. She also desired a conservative approach to rhinoplasty to gently shave down her nasal hump and rotate her tip. Six months later, this patient is beaming with the dramatically rejuvenated jawline contour and neck she never had as well as a refined nose that is in harmony with her facial features. Submental liposuction alone would have produced very conservative results.
Volux Chin and Jawline Contouring
This beautiful female patient came in for consultation seeking more chin projection and jawline definition. We injected only two syringes of Volux filler to her chin and posterior jawline for a beautiful, contoured result. Volux is a brand new from Allergan that is the first and only FDA- approved hyaluronic acid filler for improving jawline definition. We are excited to offer this revolutionary filler to our jawline contouring patients!
Facelift and Neck Lift: Before and After
This wonderful male patient in his 60s came to me for surgical consultation, bothered by his aging neck. We pursued a deep plane facelift and deep neck lift and are thrilled with his beautiful, natural results. This video displays his surgical outcome one year later. Male facelift patients with shorter hair can have undetectable scars if they are placed along natural creases and curves around the ears and heal favorably.

I received a mini neck lift and a chin augmentation in May 2022 and I am thrilled with the results of the procedure. Prior to surgery, Dr. Ho made sure any questions I had were thoughtfully answered. My incision scars have healed so well thanks to Dr. Ho’s extraordinary skill. Additionally, Dr. Ho has frequently followed up with me in person to check on my healing. So thankful for such a positive experience.

In March of 2021 I received a Deep Neck Plane Lift by Dr. Tina Ho. Upon meeting her on our virtual consultation she educated me on the process and different options I had. She was well spoken and immediately made me feel comfortable. I drove from Rhode Island to Philidelphia for this procedure and it was the best decision I have ever made for myself. Thanks to Dr. Tina Ho I am now more comfortable in my skin and confident. I will continue to see her in the future and highly recommend to those who are thinking of going to her.

I received chin lipo + platysmaplasty from Dr Ho and am so happy I made the decision to do it. I was nervous and overwhelmed going into the process and Dr Ho was so caring, patient, and skilled throughout the whole experience. She really cares about her patients and makes sure they understand everything and answers all questions. Would definitely recommend working with her!
Dr. Ho is an amazing provider, surgeon, injector and teacher! She is very thorough when explaining what is going to happen during your treatment. And takes her time to ensure your perfect results! She is the best! I highly recommend anyone to book with her!

I can’t say better things about Dr. Ho. I have gone to her for several treatments including Kybella, tear drop fillers and Botox. Not only is she extremely skilled, but she makes you feel very comfortable. I sing for a living so kybella was something I really wanted to improve my neck area. I LOVE the results and I feel like a new person. I HIGHLY recommend her for enhancing anything you’d like!

What are other injectable procedures routinely performed with jawline contouring?
It is common for other injectable procedures to be performed at the same time as jawline contouring, depending on the patient’s anatomic issues and rejuvenation goals. They include but are not limited to the following: filler treatment for cheek augmentation and tear trough deformity, temple filler injection, chin augmentation, lip, and perioral rejuvenation, and Kybella injections to the submental area. When performing jawline contouring, Dr. Ho takes into account the anatomy and treatment of the midface region (cheeks and eye areas) to create rejuvenated faces that are aesthetically beautiful and balanced. Dr. Ho is experienced in a wide range of aging face procedures and will thoroughly evaluate each jawline contouring candidate and discuss with them whether they would benefit from additional procedures at the time of their procedure.
What is neurotoxin masseter injection?
What is Kybella injection?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injection procedure indicated for the reduction of moderate to severe submental fat (the area of fat below the chin). This injection is a common adjunct procedure in jawline contouring that contributes to creating a more defined jawline on profile view and typically requires a series of three treatments or more before achieving noticeable results. Kybella® can be considered to have a permanent effect, as the active ingredient deoxycholic acid is a bile acid that breaks down and destroys fat cells. Dr. Ho has experienced in Kybella® injections and will discuss with each patient the best treatment options that meet their aesthetic concerns and goals.
What is the ideal jawline?
On profile view, the most anterior point of an ideal chin should be at or approach a vertical line (Zero Meridian of Gonzalez-Ulloa) that runs through the root of the nose and is perpendicular to a horizontal line that runs through the inferior orbital rim and superior limit of the ear canal (Frankfort horizontal line).
What are the advantages and disadvantages of Injectable Procedures for jawline contouring compared to aesthetic surgery?
Injectable procedures are an appealing non-surgical treatment option as they are less invasive and involve fewer risks and downtime compared to surgery. In contrast to filler injections, surgery typically yields more permanent results and may be considered advantageous from a long-term cost-benefit analysis when compared against repeated injectable treatments. Dr. Ho is experienced in both non-surgical and surgical methods for facial rejuvenation and will discuss with each patient the best treatment options that meet their aesthetic concerns and goals.
