Non Surgical Chin Augmentation
In terms of facial features, a well-defined chin projects authority and confidence. For years, the only way to correct a weak or under-projected chin was by going under the knife. Injectable dermal fillers have facilitated the advent of non-surgical chin augmentation with products like Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, and Radiesse. Also known as a liquid chin augmentation, this procedure can give patients a more sculpted profile while enhancing facial balance and harmony.
Chin contouring at Dallas Dermatology is used to bring this central feature in proportion with the rest of the face. Our highly experienced team understands the art of chin shaping and selects appropriate jaw and chin filler to achieve your aesthetic goals. Injectable fillers are a safe and non-invasive option for a number of concerns, whether you are looking to sculpt the chin, add volume and projection to a small chin, or correct asymmetry.
Chin contouring with dermal fillers is a non-surgical procedure that takes approximately 15 minutes to perform. Your dermatologist will inject one or a combination of fillers in strategic areas under the skin or muscle to sculpt and augment the lower face. The type, amount, and depth of filler injected are tailored to each patient for optimum results. Small amounts of filler may also be placed in the lateral jawline, depending on facial anatomy and desired refinements.
This lunchtime procedure can be used to enhance the projection of a weak chin, correct indentations or irregularities, and minimize jowls for a more contoured jawline.
Ideal candidates for chin augmentation and contouring with fillers are those with realistic expectations-- who want to improve their chin definition without cosmetic surgery. This treatment can help both men and women:
- Improve chin and jawline symmetry
- Improve chin height, width, and projection
- Enhance facial feature balance
- Correct dimples and uneven chins
Our board-certified dermatologists take great care to make this procedure is as comfortable as possible. A topical numbing gel is typically applied prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort.
Downtime is minimal after augmenting a recessed chin with facial fillers. Expect the chin area to feel sore and tender for a few days. Minor swelling is normal, and some will develop bruises at the injection sites. These side effects should resolve in a couple of days. Aftercare is simple: avoid strenuous exercise and sleep on your back or side to avoid moving the filler for the first few nights. Otherwise, you can resume normal daily activities. If there are any post-procedure concerns, consult your dermatologist.
The duration of chin augmentation results depends on the filler being used, the depth of injection, and your specific metabolism. Radiesse, for example, lasts 12-15 months. And certain Juvederm products can last up to two years.
