#1: Sharper JawlineMany patients who come in for jaw filler to achieve a sharper, more defined jawline are surprised when their injector recommended chin filler instead. A recessed chin, even one that is not that noticeable or pronounced, can make the jawline look shorter and less defined. Adding projection to the chin with filler lengthens the look of the jawline which overall defines its appearance.
#2: Opportunity To “Try On” A Chin ImplantDeciding to undergo chin augmentation with an implant is a big decision. While chin implants are sized and customized to the patient, it can be difficult to commit without knowing you will even like the look of your augmented chin. Dermal fillers are a temporary way to experiment with how your chin would look post-surgery. This can help many patients decide the best chin augmentation route for them.
#3: Correct Unwanted Chin DimplesWhen a patient comes in wanting to correct an unwanted chin dimple or similar minor concern, a chin implant is simply not warranted. While it may address the issue, it ultimately overcorrects in many cases. Therefore, filler is a great option for these patients because they can use only a small amount of filler to correct the specific problem areas.
