When it comes to facial symmetry and balance, the chin is an important feature. The size and position of your chin can impact the appearance of your lips, nose, and neck. At Seriously Skin in Chagrin Falls, OH, when patients express concerns about the shape of the chin, we often recommend dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can be used as minimally invasive chin augmentation to enhance a weak chin and achieve optimal symmetry and definition.
Enhancing an aging face with minimally invasive chin augmentation
Minimally invasive chin augmentation is a safe and effective alternative to implants that enhance the appearance of the lower face.
As we get older, the chin tends to lose volume, position, and fat. This, combined with a reduction in the jawbone and fat loss around the mouth, can lead to jowls. During minimally invasive chin augmentation, injectable dermal fillers can be used around the mouth as well as along the chin and jawline to restore volume and a more youthful appearance.
How minimally invasive chin augmentation works
During the procedure, fillers are injected into specific areas of the lower face to increase the width and length of the chin. Minimally invasive chin augmentation is a customizable procedure based on the needs of each individual, allowing the patient to determine the degree of projection he or she desires. The entire treatment typically takes 10 to 20 minutes, and the result is a natural-looking chin with more definition that brings balance to the rest of the face.
Both hyaluronic acid fillers such as Voluma and calcium-based fillers such as Radiesse can be used for minimally invasive chin augmentations. During the consultation process, we work with patients to determine which filler is appropriate to achieve the desired results.
