Is Chin Augmentation Worth It?

By | Face, Chin Augmentation, Injectable Fillers
Chin augmentation—whether done with an implant or dermal fillers—is a procedure that is perfect for good candidates, but can cause seriously bad results for patients who are not good candidates. This can lead patients to become weary of any chin augmentation procedure and ask, “Is chin augmentation worth it?”   In the right patient who has a recessed chin, chin augmentation is absolutely worth it. The procedure brings the facial thirds into alignment and enhances facial symmetry and balance. It can also help create a sharper and slimmer looking jawline. Dr. Jonov or your provider at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can examine your facial structure to determine if you are a good candidate for chin augmentation.    In the wrong patient, chin augmentation can cause the chin to protrude too much and throw off facial balance. Usually, this is due to poor patient screening or over injection of filler. The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery’s providers work to ensure that your treatment plan is right for you.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Benefits Of Chin Filler

By | Nonsurgical, Chin Augmentation
For many patients, chin filler is one of the most surprising non-surgical procedures available. This is because it can address concerns seemingly unrelated to the chin. Since the chin is one of the structural mainstays of the lower third of the face, a strong chin can make a major difference in the look of the face. Here are some of the benefits of chin filler and some may be surprising.

#1: Sharper Jawline

Many 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 Implant

Deciding 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 Dimples

When 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.

What Is The Best Filler For The Chin?

By | Chin Augmentation, Juvederm®, Injectable Fillers
Chin filler–also known as a non-surgical chin augmentation–is becoming a popular procedure because it can make improvements to the jawline, facial profile, and symmetry. Chin augmentation traditionally uses surgical methods to place a chin implant. However, with new techniques, many patients with more minor concerns can undergo non-surgical procedures to achieve the results they want. When inquiring about chin filler, patients often want to know, “What is the best filler for the chin?”   Hyaluronic acid fillers Juvederm and Restylane are the two most frequently used dermal fillers for the chin. Considering the chin is bony, thicker fillers tend to work better in this area. Juvederm Voluma is a popular choice and usually provides good results when injected into the chin. This filler also lasts the longest among hyaluronic acid fillers.   Restylane Lyft which is often used in the cheeks can also provide good results in the chin. Of the Restylane filler options, Lyft is one of the thicker options that is still malleable and well suited to the area. Occasionally, other fillers such as Radiesse may also be used in the chin. Though, this is largely on a case-by-case basis. Your injector will discuss your filler options and the best one for your chin filler in Bellevue.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.

Chin Implant vs. Chin Fillers: Which Is Right For Me?

By | Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation comes in two main forms: a chin implant or chin filler. Depending on your individual anatomy, preferences, and goals, one may benefit you more than the other. In a consultation, Dr. Craig Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can evaluate you and your goals to aid you in determining the best Bellevue chin augmentation option for you.   During chin implant surgery, Dr. Jonov will place an implant into the chin to create a more prominent and well shaped chin. The implants are typically made of silicone and are sized to compliment your natural facial features. This option is often preferred by patients who have a recessed chin or who need a modification that filler cannot provide. For some patients who continually seek filler, this may offer them a longer lasting solution.    Chin filler has many uses. It can filler in wrinkles, unwanted dimples, or provide subtle augmentation to even out the facial profile. When used for chin augmentation, filler is injected to increase the projection of the chin. This can lead to a more symmetrical appearance and a facial transformation that is not immediately noticeable.

Chin Augmentation: How It Can Transform Facial Profile

By | Chin Augmentation, Injectable Fillers
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.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation: It May Be The Solution For Your Undefined Jawline

By | Face, Chin Augmentation, Injectables
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.  To schedule a free consultation with Dr. Jonov or a qualified injector, call The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery at 425-775-3561 or contact us online.
