What is chin augmentation with filler?

Chin augmentation with filler involves injecting temporary dermal fillers, which are gel-like substances, into the soft tissues of the jaw. It is also known as non-surgical chin augmentation and is an excellent facial sculpting option for those with minor concerns. These injectables alter the contour and definition of the chin to successfully bring the chin and lower third of the face into proportion with other prominent facial features.

The best candidates for chin augmentation with filler:

  • Have a small chin compared to their nose or other facial features
  • Are generally healthy non-smokers
  • Understand the risks, benefits, and realistic outcomes associated with the procedure

What are the benefits of filler chin augmentation?

Chin fillers can create a stronger jawline, giving the face a more youthful and elegant appearance. Additionally, these injections can add more definition between the face and neck while restoring age-related volume loss in the face.

Dermal fillers for chin augmentation can:

  • Strengthen and define the chin
  • Increase chin projection
  • Improve facial symmetry
  • Create proportion at the bottom of the face
  • Contour the jawline
  • Restore the structure of the lower face
  • Reshape the contours of the chin
  • Soften and reduce the appearance of a cleft chin
  • Give immediate results with no downtime and minimal recovery

Chin augmentation procedure

Dr. Markelov performs chin augmentation with filler injections during an office visit. He cleans the injection site before applying a numbing cream to reduce discomfort. After ensuring the site is prepared, Dr. Markelov expertly injects a specific amount of dermal filler into the chin’s soft tissues.

You can see results immediately after receiving the injections. Any mild swelling and bruising should subside within one week following the injection. While you can resume your usual activities, you may need to wait a few days before exercising or doing other strenuous activities.

How long does chin augmentation with filler last?

Chin augmentation with filler provides long-lasting but temporary results because your body will absorb the filler over time. As such, this is an excellent treatment option if you want a general idea of the improvements achieved with dermal fillers. 

A nonsurgical chin augmentation in Tampa can last between six and twelve months. These results may continue to progress for one full year after injection but are determined by the following:

  • The type of filler
  • Size of the treatment site
  • Individual body chemistry
