If you’ve ever looked longingly at someone else’s strong, defined chin and wondered why you weren’t born with chiseled features, a chin augmentation may be right for you. This cosmetic procedure provides a couple options and is fine-tuned to be the most flattering to your face.
Your chin has a significant impact on your overall appearance. The chin balances the shape of the face, and creates a relationship between your neck and the nose. A weak chin has an amazing ability to throw off the balance and harmony that exists between all of your facial features.
You have options when it comes to chin augmentation:
- Non-surgical chin augmentation. To complete a non-surgical chin enhancement, Dr. Schuster will utilize a combination of dermal fillers, BOTOX Cosmetic, and fat grafting. Going the non-surgical route allows you to avoid downtime and anesthesia. Although the injections do not last forever, they offer long-term results. You will need to visit Dr. Schuster for re-treatment 9 months to 1 year after your initial treatment. The non-surgical process is also highly customizable. Dr. Schuster can utilize the injectables to create dimples and a shape that is the most flattering to your face.
- Chin augmentation with an implant. A silicone chin implant can be placed surgically. Unlike fillers, the implant will last indefinitely. The surgical route is also somewhat customizable because there are several different styles and sizes to create the chin shape and projection you want.
Choosing between the two approaches is much easier when you meet with Dr. Schuster. He will listen to your goals and expectations, examine your chin, and make his recommendations for surgical augmentation. Ultimately the choice is up to you, but Dr. Schuster provides guidance every step of the way.
