Chin Augmentation / Enhancement

What is chin augmentation with a filler?

Non-surgical chin augmentation is the process of injecting dermal filler into the precise areas of the chin, based on the individual need to achieve adequate length, width or projection of the chin.

The chin is an important part of the face, both in men and women, and is a main feature that adds to physical countenance. Chin augmentation can be attained permanently through surgical methods such as chin implants. Patients who are uncertain about undergoing a surgical procedure can opt to be treated non-surgically for chin enhancement. In non-surgical chin augmentation, a small amount of dermal filler is used in order to keep total control over the shape and contours of the chin for both men and women. The dermal fillers are composed of biocompatible materials that may stimulate natural collagen formation beneath the skin to achieve the defined shape.

Am I a good candidate for a chin augmentation with a filler?

Patients who wish to improve the size and shape of their chin, with minimal pain or without surgery, can opt for non-surgical chin augmentation.

The ideal candidates for this procedure include people having:

  • Small or weak chin
  • Chin deformities by birth
  • Injured chin deformities

How long does the procedure and recovery take?

Non-surgical chin augmentation is a painless procedure that takes less than half an hour, and the patient may return to their routine activities immediately after the procedure. The attained chin enhancement usually lasts for 6-9 months, but the type of dermal filler used determines how long the results will last and ranges from months to years.

What happens during the procedure?

The procedure is usually performed under local anaesthesia and often the patient is allowed to participate in the pattern of correction by watching the process in a mirror. In some cases, the procedure may be repeated the following month in order to achieve the full effect as desired by the patient.

What are the side effects of non-surgical chin augmentation?

The side effects of non-surgical chin augmentation are similar to other injectable treatments including redness, swelling, and discomfort that usually are resolved within a week.
