Jaw slimming horror stories are many. Laser year we saw over 15 patients who had a lopsided droop to their lower face and an uneven smile after having facial slimming treatment. Worst outcomes were when the practitioner whom they had visited forgot to treat the chin. That meant the person had a minuscule jawline which in the end doesn’t look aesthetically pleasing either.
As a patient who is looking for jaw slimming treatment, you need to understand that things do go wrong.
