I have marionette’s mouth and I would like to have dermal filler put in both sides of my jowls.
This is a common area we fill with dermal fillers. It helps to support the corners of the mouth, and soften the appearance of ‘marionette lines’ . Furthermore, we usually place some fillers along the side of the chin (just ahead of the jowls), to help to hide the jowls. There are a few options in regards to the fillers, and each person will require a different amount to improve the area.
