Chin augmentation can be accomplished using facial implants, dermal fillers, or through chin bone advancement. Your doctor will recommend the most ideal method for you, so it’s important that you seek the help of a trusted surgeon to ensure overall facial symmetry and optimum results.
For non-invasive chin augmentation, Dr. Sedgh uses a safe, injectable dermal filler that is thicker and more robust to allow for deeper placement and increased structure. He will begin by marking the designated injection sites and applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area. The filler will then be injected into these sites in small increments, until the desired shape is achieved.
The results for this type of procedure are temporary and will last for about six to twelve months, which is why patients usually undergo regularly scheduled injections to maintain the chin’s improved appearance.
Meanwhile, surgical chin augmentation through implants or bone advancement will yield permanent results.
