What is non-surgical chin augmentation?

Patients who are looking to achieve a subtle yet sizable chin augmentation can rely on non-surgical injectables. A non-surgical chin augmentation, also known as a liquid chin augmentation, can make the chin protrude further out, giving the patient a stronger profile. It also gives them a broader jawline and reduces asymmetry in the face. The added benefit of this method is that it allows patients to ‘try out’ a temporary form of chin augmentation before committing to chin fillers, which are a much more permanent solution.

What are the benefits of a non-surgical chin augmentation?

Beyond giving patients a more aesthetically pleasing profile, chin augmentation comes with the following benefits:

  • A more symmetrical nose
  • A more chiseled, defined jawline
  • A non-surgical procedure that comes with little downtime
  • No scarring or incisions are required
  • A huge boost in self-confidence
  • A customizable treatment for all individuals
  • A natural transformation, with no obvious signs of surgery
  • A more proportionate face
  • Enhances a weak chin
  • Keeps the chin protected

Who is an ideal candidate for a non-surgical chin augmentation?

As with any cosmetic treatment, ideal patients for a non-surgical chin augmentation in Chicago will have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Beyond that, it is a suitable treatment for patients that seek to:

  • Address asymmetry in the chin and jawline
  • Modify the height, width, and projection of the chin
  • Create more balance among the facial features
  • Treat dimples and unevenness in the chin

How does the treatment work?

Non-surgical (liquid) chin augmentation is carried out with injectable hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse. Hyaluronic acid is a compound that is naturally found in the body and works by bonding with hydrogen molecules. Upon injection, hyaluronic acid-based fillers add volume to the face, giving the chin an enhancement that appears totally natural. The body slowly breaks down and absorbs these fillers over time, making them totally safe for human use.

Your Customized Treatment Plan

Everyone is born with a unique chin and requires their own unique treatment plan to address their aesthetic concerns. Dr. Few helps his patients curate a proper treatment plan, choosing the best combination of dermal fillers possible. Prior to the injections, the skin is thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic is applied to ensure that patients are comfortable throughout the procedure.

The fillers are then injected into the pre-planned treatment sites, creating a more proportionate chin shape that is in harmony with the other facial features. A non-surgical chin augmentation typically takes about 30 minutes to perform.

What Happens After My Session?

One of the biggest benefits of this method is that it comes with little-to-no downtime or recovery. Patients can get back to work and their daily routines right away. That said, there are a few instructions that should be kept in mind:

  • Avoid vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours
  • Refrain from touching or rubbing the chin, as this can cause the filler to spread to other areas of the face
  • Avoid taking blood thinners prior to and following the procedure
  • Use a cold compress to help mitigate swelling
  • Avoid intense heat and/or sunlight for at least 48 hours

What to expect from the results

With just one non-surgical chin augmentation session, patients can achieve their desired outcome. The effects of the treatment are visible right away, leaving patients with an increased definition of the jawline as well as a more aesthetically appealing profile. Depending on which fillers are injected, results can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months before a follow-up treatment will be needed.

Additional Treatment Options

Patients who are seeking a more permanent solution for their chin can receive chin fillers. If a patient is struggling with a double chin, Kybella can also be employed as a means of reducing stubborn submental fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. More information can be provided during the consultation.
