Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation: Injectables Open the Door to a Stronger Profile
Our chin is not only the base from which our face arises, but it also plays a major role in the proportion of all our other features. Whether our nose, lips, and cheekbones “fit” is influenced powerfully by the profile our chin creates.
Now it’s possible to significantly improve that profile without surgery, through the skilled use of injectable fillers. With your doctor’s selection, from among them you can see the results in a matter of minutes rather than weeks.
Perhaps few features are as closely associated with basic character and outlook as the chin. A recessive chin – one that ends short of a vertical line down from the brow and alongside the nose – is implicitly seen as weak or uncertain in many cases. Conversely, a chin that meets that imaginary line is frequently seen as a sign of confidence, conviction, and even authority.
Reducing Risks, Including the Risk of Hesitation
Because injectables offer the benefits of a stronger chin without the risks of surgery, are more adaptable and controllable for natural-looking results, require little recovery and no downtime, many people are choosing this solution now.
Avoiding the permanence of a surgical implant frees many patients to step forward and see what a stronger chin can mean for them.
Results on View Immediately
In most cases, only minor swelling has to subside for the results of a non-surgical chin augmentation to be fully in view. The procedure is a quick in-office procedure that takes less than five minutes without the need for any anesthesia.
The injectables used for non-surgical chin implants can go much deeper and bond with the body’s own tissue. Because they are applied in precise amounts and locations, you and your doctor have more control over how much change and what shape your procedure produces. Unlike permanent implants, injectables offer the opportunity to modify the augmentation as time goes on and they tend to adapt, looking more natural as the face continues to change.
A Careful Conversation is Called For
Even though the results of a non-surgical chin augmentation are not permanent, the change in appearance of a stronger chin is so fundamental that you’ll want to be sure you have the counsel of an experienced, board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has years of experience working with equal parts art, science, and skill.
