For patients who want a more chiseled and defined jawline, Dr. Maercks is able to perform Aesthetic Facial Balancing© of the jaw. He strategically places hyaluronic acid-based filler around the area to achieve a more sculpted jawline with this signature procedure.
Recovery time from Aesthetic Facial Balancing may vary depending on the amount of volume used during the procedure, as well as the patient’s age, overall health, and post-procedure activities. When small sub-unit steps are planned, there’s typically no significant recovery time — but with more extensive treatments, recovery time may be 2 to 7 days. In some cases, there’s no recovery time at all, but patients should always be prepared for minimal swelling and perhaps some bruising. Patients usually leave Dr. Maercks’s office thrilled with their outcome, and are able to immediately return to their regular day.
