Chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers is a non-surgical approach used for enhancing facial appearance by adding volume to recessed or weak chins. This procedure involves injecting synthetic fillers into the soft tissues near the existing skeletal structure of the chin. The results are temporary, typically lasting 9-12 months. It can also be performed to help a patient to develop realistic expectations of how a permanent chin implant may improve the overall facial appearance.
About the Procedure
Chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers is an excellent option for people with recessed chins to temporarily experience the benefits of permanent alloplastic chin implants. During this non-surgical outpatient procedure, soft tissue fillers like silicone, Juvederm, and Radiesse can be injected into the soft tissue that surrounds the skeletal shape of the chin. This outpatient procedure is associated with little downtime, requires about 6 days to recover fully from, and costs $650-$2500 on average. Numbing creams are typically mixed with the soft tissue filler agent that is being used to reduce any pain or discomfort during the procedure. This type of liquid chin augmentation helps to restore chin volume that is naturally decreased in most people with age. It helps to restore a more youthful chin, neck, and jawline appearance, and thereby improve the contours and balance of the entire face. Autologous fat transfer (fat grafting) may also be used for chin augmentation. Excess fat tissue can be harvested via liposuction from anywhere in the body, and then, injected into the chin area to add volume. Some people prefer fat transfer chin augmentation over synthetic soft tissue fillers because it is less prone to bodily rejection and is metabolized less quickly.
