Dr Wittenberg is internationally known for jawline augmentation and facial contouring. He has a unique background and artistic nature to analyze and plan for individualized jawline contouring. He specifically customizes the materials for each patient by creating the implant contours at the time of the surgery so each patient achieves the best contour and balance for their face.
Chin implants and sliding genioplasty procedures are an effective way to enhance your profile and can provide a relatively simple solution to improve the look of the jawline. Effective definition of the jawline can also be achieved with a surgery to recontour the chin in 3Dimensions so that all aspects of the jawline are improved. Often the key to a good result is not only the prominence of the chin in profile; but also the width of the chin, and the height of the chin. Dr Wittenberg is the only surgeon who customizes the area along side the chin towards the back of the jaw in order to enhance the jawline in a smooth even contour. This avoids the dip alongside chin surgeries often seen elsewhere. The augmentation of the chin can also help to ‘flatten’ the area under the chin and reduce the look of a ‘double chin’ so as to avoid liposuction. However, when chin liposuction is necessary, it can be done simultaneously to achieve the most ideal results.
Dr. Wittenberg performs cosmetic surgery with a combined anatomic knowledge and artistic integrity. He has a unique approach to repositioning tissue to its natural and original positions in order to properly rejuvenate the facial balance. He is well known for all procedures including browlifts, eyelid lifts/blepharoplasties, midface lifts, face and neck lifts, nasal esthetic surgery, lip and tissue filler augmentation, and skin laser treatments. His sincere and gentle approach is very well appreciated by his patients.
The natural aging of our facial tissues often leads to others commenting that we ‘look tired’. The use of nonsurgical and surgical techniques to restore and rejuvenate our appearances is a strong feature of our practice. With a detailed knowledge of facial anatomy including bone and soft tissue, Dr Wittenberg is able to truly establish a natural repositioning of tissues to rejuvenate the face. There are many approaches and we will honestly recommend the appropriate one for your goal.
The overall facial shape can appear too wide and ‘strong’ in a female such that one can reshape the facial bones to yield a softer feminine appearance. This usually involves trimming the jaw angles as well as the side of the jaw and the chin. The chin is often recontoured 3 dimensionally to achieve the soft ‘V’/tapered look.
The use of Invisalign to straighten teeth without fixed braces is an increasingly common procedure. In those cases where orthodontic (orthognathic) surgery is required in coordination with the Invisalign to align the jaw positions; Dr Wittenberg has the worldwide reputation of having developed the technique to avoid the necessity to place fixed braces at the time of surgery ; and he is able to perform the surgery without braces from our website. He is unique in the use of Invisalign Surgery and can consult with you and your orthodontist to achieve the best possible result for you.
