Using Filler vs. Surgery for Chin Sculpting

Side-by-side picture of a woman's facial profile before and after chin surgeryA well-defined chin and jawline establishes an attractive balance the neck and face. A sharp jawline and chin gives the perception of youth and strength. Unfortunately, everyone is not blessed with “perfect” anatomy. It is very common to have fullness throughout the neck either due to muscle anatomy, fat or both. In addition, the development of your jaw and teeth can determine how chin appears.

If you are concerned about the appearance of a “weak chin”, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald Schuster can strengthen your chin and provide a beautiful balance to your facial features using fillers or chin implants. In cases of an over-projecting, or “long,” chin Dr. Schuster can surgically alter the chin in a chin reduction and/or reshaping procedure.

When correcting a weak chin and/or jawline, fillers can be very effective. They are easy to perform in the office and give immediate results. Fillers are also great to fix those dimples and irregularities which so frequently appear as the chin thins out during aging. Chin implants are more appropriate if you desire a long-lasting change. Finally, Botox and Dysport can be used to relax and soften the chin when there is increased strain and flattening.
