The dimensions of the chin can have a profound impact on the aesthetics of a face, playing an important role in the overall silhouette and symmetry of the face. Balanced and proportionate facial features are paramount to a beautiful appearance, so a weak or receding chin can affect overall facial structure.
Procedures for chin augmentation or enhancement – both surgical and non-surgical – can help to reshape, reposition, and refine the chin for a more natural and attractive facial profile.
Both surgical and non-surgical methods have their advantages. So, below we address each to help you better understand each method while deciding which procedure is right for you.
Chin Implant – Surgical Option
Chin implants can increase the forward projection of the chin, provide augmentation of the depression between the chin and jowl – or both. Performed using local anesthesia and light sedation, a chin implant takes approximately 30-45 minutes and heals within 1-2 weeks. It is often performed in conjunction with a face and/or neck lift or in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to improve the overall proportions between the nose and chin.
Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement
Some dermal fillers can naturally and safely correct a weak profile or receding chin without the risk and downtime associated with surgical implants to help facial symmetry and balance.
KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance and profile of a moderate to severe ‘double chin.’ The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin permanently. Each treatment session with KYBELLA™ is typically 15-20 minutes.
