Chin augmentation–whether surgical or non-surgical–can dramatically change facial profile and appearance. As the main feature for the bottom of the face, the chin can affect the look of the jawline and neck. A recessed chin can cause the jaw to look undefined or the neck to look short. Using filler or an implant, Dr. Jonov can address these, and other concerns you may have. When it comes to facial aesthetics, the bottom of the chin should roughly line up with the tip of the nose. Sometimes, the chin does not fully extend to meet this, and this is known as a recessed chin. Most of the time, this is only slight and does not bother many people. However, for those that choose, a chin augmentation procedure can subtly or dramatically augment this area to create the desired facial profile. Dr. Jonov of The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery uses two methods for chin augmentation. The first involves a chin implant that he places during a chin augmentation surgery. This provides longer lasting results and works best for those wanting a more dramatic result. It can also alter the shape of the chin. Non-surgical chin augmentation uses dermal fillers to augment the chin. Results are usually more subtle and last between six months and two years depending on the chosen filler. It can address minor chin recession, dimples, and other minor alterations.To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
When patients seek treatment for an undefined jawline, they may think that jaw filler or an implant are the only methods that will help them get the chiseled, contoured jaw they want. However, because of the jaw’s relative location on the face, and it’s importance to the facial profile, addressing the chin may actually provide the results they want. Lengthening the jaw by injecting filler or placing an implant in the chin, can make the jaw look longer and sharper. Additionally, a recessed jaw often causes an unpronounced jaw. When you correct this using filler or an implant, this can lead to a strong, defined jawline.Chin augmentation can be performed in many ways, however, most commonly it is either achieved through the use of dermal fillers or a silicone implant. Dermal fillers provide a non-surgical, although temporary, it does allow you to try out the look of your chin and jawline before committing to an implant. Some people also only need minor corrections, making an implant unnecessary for their needs.
