What is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation with filler is a cosmetic procedure to enhance the chin’s size, shape, and projection. Dermal fillers are a fast, effective, non-surgical option for achieving a more balanced chin structure.

Are You a Candidate for Chin Augmentation?

While everyone has their unique reasons, here are a few reasons to undergo chin augmentation:

  • Enhance Facial Proportions: Chin augmentation can improve the chin’s proportion with other facial features, such as the nose and lips, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Weak Chin: A weak, receding, or recessed chin can affect facial harmony, making the nose or other features appear more prominent. Chin augmentation can increase chin projection and create a more attractive facial balance.
  • Define the Jawline and Neck: Chin augmentation can enhance the definition of the jawline and neck, creating a more sculpted and youthful appearance. 
  • Reduce the Appearance of Submental Fat: Chin augmentation can address a small or recessed chin bone, helping to reduce the appearance of submental fat (double chin). 
  • Aging Changes: As we age, the chin area may lose volume and definition, giving your face a less youthful appearance. Chin augmentation can restore lost volume and rejuvenate the lower face for a fresh, healthy look.
  • Boost Confidence and Self-Esteem: Chin augmentation can significantly impact self-confidence and self-esteem, resolving lifelong aesthetic concerns. So Many Non-Surgical Options

Dermal fillers offer a versatile and minimally invasive solution for enhancing the chin. Here are the dermal filler options available for chin augmentation:

  • Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular choices for chin augmentation. Hyaluronic acid fillers are biocompatible and offer long-lasting but temporary results, typically 6 to 18 months.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) Fillers: Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers stimulate collagen production, providing immediate volume and long-term improvement in chin contour. CaHA fillers can last up to 12 months or more.
  • Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA) Fillers: Poly-L-lactic acid fillers are designed to stimulate collagen production and gradually restore volume to the chin area. These fillers are ideal for patients seeking subtle and natural-looking enhancement over time. PLLA fillers typically require multiple sessions for optimal results and can last up to 2 years or more.
  • Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Fillers: Polymethyl methacrylate fillers contain microspheres that remain in the skin permanently, offering durable and predictable enhancement. PMMA fillers are suitable for patients seeking a more permanent solution for chin augmentation.

The Chin You Have Always Wanted: The Procedure

Chin augmentation using dermal fillers is a minimally invasive procedure performed in the office under local anesthesia. The filler is injected directly into the chin area using a fine needle or cannula, with results visible immediately after treatment.

Quick Recovery

There is minimal downtime associated with chin augmentation using dermal fillers. Patients may experience minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site, which typically resolves within a few days. Most patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.

Long Lasting Chin Enhancement

The results of chin augmentation using dermal fillers are immediate and can last 12-18 months or more, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism and lifestyle. Touch-up treatments may be recommended to maintain optimal results over time.
