Your face looks its best when it is in proper balance and harmony. Patients who have a poorly defined chin may deal with a smooth or nonexistent jawline that makes them appear heavier than they are. Chin augmentation with a cosmetic surgeon is a great way to ensure more definition and balance with the chin, jaw, and neck. Dr. Jeffrey Hartog and his team at The Bougainvillea Clinique can educate patients on ways to restore harmony and balance while ensuring a more beautiful appearance.
What methods of chin augmentation are available at The Bougainvillea Clinique?
Dr. Jeffrey Hartog is pleased to offer several solutions for patients to consider when they are thinking about achieving a more defined chin and jawline. Below are just a few of the options that might be recommended depending on your needs:
- Chin implants – just as the breasts can be improved in size and shape with implants, certain chin implants can be inserted above the chin bone to add shape and contour. This also improves definition of the jawline along the chin and improves the contours of your profile in a more permanent manner.
- Dermal fillers – dermal filler injectables formulated with hyaluronic acid may also be used along the chin and jaw area to add volume and augment the jawline. This provides a more defined appearance to help differentiate the chin from the neck area. Dermal fillers only last a few months, so regular appointments for reinjection are often necessary.
- Kybella® injections – patients who have poor definition and excess skin under the chin and around the neck, sometimes known as a “double chin,” can address this problem with certain injectables available at our office. Instead of removing unwanted fat, or “submental fullness,” from the neck area with liposuction, patients can have Kybella® injected around the area to reduce fat cells and improve the chin, jaw, and neck contours.
