Chin Augmentation Options
If you have a small chin or a weak chin, it can negatively impact the appearance of your face. Having a more prominent chin that juts out can make a dramatic difference. Dallas, TX cosmetic surgeon Mark A. Deuber offers facial plastic surgery and enhancement options to alter the shape and contour of the chin.
Chin implant surgery and dermal filler injections are two great options for chin augmentation. Let’s consider how these surgical and non-surgical approaches work and which may be right for you.
About Chin Implants
Chin implants are custom-made facial implants that alter the shape and add volume to the chin. Chin implants are usually placed through an oral incision along the crease inside the mouth where the base of the lower lip meets the mandible. Through this incision, the facial implant is positioned to improve the prominence of the chin.
Good Candidates for Chin Implants
Good candidates for chin implants are people who would like to alter the shape or enhance the overall prominence of their chin. They should understand the risks and benefits involved in the surgery, and have realistic expectations about the procedure and what it entails.
The Results of Chin Implant Surgery
The results of chin augmentation with implants can be dramatic. A recessed chin will have much better definition and will project outward. This can have a major impact on your appearance whether viewed in profile or straight on. The chin implant can improve self-esteem and enhance your other facial features as well.
About Dermal Filler Injections
Dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injectable that adds volume to the injection site. These solutions are commonly associated with anti-aging treatments, such as reducing wrinkles and adding volume to loose parts of the face. Dermal fillers can also be used for chin augmentation, adding projection to a weak chin without the need for a facial implant.
Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Good candidates for liquid chin augmentation include patients who would like to avoid the risks and downtime associated with facial implant surgery. They should be aware of the nature of dermal filler treatment, and know that the results of liquid chin augmentation will be temporary.
The Results of Dermal Fillers
The results of a liquid chin augmentation are comparable to chin implant surgery. Patients have no downtime after an injection session, and the overall outcomes can be natural-looking and dramatic.
The dermal fillers will usually fade within a year, though some fillers can last up to two years. Repeat dermal filler procedures can be performed as needed to prolong the positive result.
