Is Your Jaw Man Enough?
Dr. Jacono was featured in Details magazine in an article that discusses the appearance of a masculine jaw.
Dr. Andrew Jacono is the director of the New York Center for Facial, Plastic, and Laser Surgery is seeing five guys a week for this procedure alone. Specific numbers are not available - the FDA has yet to approve hyaluronic acid for this purpose, though its use is not illegal and the practice is common among doctors - but the market for this injectable grew 32% in 2013, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Jacono says it's so normalized that patients routinely show up with vision boards. "They bring in images from some 'masculine jaw' Google searches. Pictures of David Beckham, Tom Brady, Gerard Butler, MMA fighters, that guy in the Dolce & Gabbana ads."
Rather than requiring scalpels and sutures, fillers offer a slight tweak with little hassle - and without the "Tells" of other treatments; the results are both immediate and impressive. "I was nervous it would look like I had a facelift," says a male patient who was treated by Dr. Jacono and found the effects to be surprisingly natural.
