Male Facial Sculpting

Male facial sculpting is one of the most significant (and growing) trends in the aesthetics industry. Younger male patients are seeking more contoured facial features, including stronger, squared-off jawlines; higher and angled cheekbones; and bold, defined chins to achieve a “modelesque” look or a more masculine appearance.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer, a renowned expert in both male and female facial sculpting, provides stunning, natural-looking transformations with a range of injectable dermal fillers and innovative non-surgical approaches. Dr. Emer meticulously and strategically injects ‘micro-aliquots’ of filler in various areas of the face to not only enhance your signature features but also enhance your overall shape, contour, and facial harmony or balance.

At the same time, older male patients are also turning to non-invasive male facial sculpting to rejuvenate the face and address the visible signs of aging, including skin laxity, sagging skin, volume loss in the midface and temples, under-eye bags and dark circles, and more prominent jowls.

In the hands of a renowned facial sculptor like Dr. Emer, dermal fillers can be used to:

  • lift and enhance the cheeks
  • augment and strengthen the jawline and project and widen the chin to create a more masculine, chiseled, and structured look
  • soften the nasolabial folds and marionette / laugh lines, crow’s feet, and fine lines and wrinkles
  • rejuvenate the under-eye area, including hollows and dark circles
  • lift and restore volume to areas with hollowing, volume loss, or sagging, such as the cheeks and temples

facial asymmetry

  • provide subtle lip improvements
  • correct facial asymmetry to create a more proportionate, harmonious look
  • improve the nose through liquid rhinoplasty (non-surgical nose job), including improving nasal symmetry, addressing bumps and irregularities, and correcting droopy nasal tip
  • balance the lower, middle, and upper face
  • fine-tune and provide subtle enhancements

How does Dr. Emer do it differently?

For the best results in male facial sculpting, Dr. Emer addresses every area of the face and employs techniques that shape and blend rather than simply line fill. A skilled and experienced artist, Dr. Emer layers thicker, more robust dermal fillers with softer, more subtle fillers to lift, contour, define, and create an all-around “natural” look.

To address your unique aesthetic goals, Dr. Emer may recommend a customized combination treatment that includes dermal fillers, neuromodulators or “freezers” (such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau), Sculptra (a natural collagen stimulator), laser treatments, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy-based devices, microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and tailored skin care protocols.

If desired, Dr. Emer can combine these treatments with the minimally invasive Renuvion (J-Plasma), a “shrink wrap” internal heating device that tightens the skin on the face, chin, and neck, or InMode FaceTite, which contours the lower face, jawline, and jowls through a Mini-Facelift and Neck Lift. For patients with severe hollowness and/or volume loss, Dr. Emer and his board-certified facial plastic surgeons can introduce facial implants to create more significant and permanent volumization.

How long do male facial sculpting improvements last?

The longevity of your treatment varies depending on the filler(s) used and your body’s response to the product. Depending on your specific aesthetic goals, Dr. Emer may recommend temporary dermal fillers, semi-permanent fillers such as Bellafill (ideal for men who metabolize hyaluronic acid fillers very quickly), or permanent solutions such as silicone injections or fat grafting.


The only FDA-approved dermal filler for both immediate and long-term improvement in acne scarring, Bellafill immediately plumps the skin and binds to the tissue to create a scaffold beneath the skin, thereby promoting natural collagen production. The new collagen creates additional volume and reduces the appearance of scars, cellulite, lines, wrinkles, folds, furrows, and indentations, resulting in a smooth, subtle, and long-term outcome. When used in combination, hyaluronic acid fillers and Bellafill can create immediate results and long-term solutions.

One of Dr. Emer’s newest combinations is a blend of Bellafill and Juvederm Voluma, or “BellaLift,” which features the lifting properties of Voluma and the long-lasting, collagen-building benefits of Bellafill. This cleverly crafted combination approach is a more permanent solution to facial sculpting procedures, such as enhancing the chin, defining the jaw, and contouring the nose, and can even be used to improve scarring, facial asymmetries, facial trauma, or hollowing temples.

Are there any risks involved with male facial sculpting?

With any dermal filler treatment, there is always a potential for pain, swelling, bruising, headaches, lumps or bumps in the area treated. Meticulous technique by an experienced and skilled injector is the best means of reducing risks and complications. For this reason, it is important to schedule a formal evaluation with a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Jason Emer to determine the ideal and safest method of treatment for you.
