What causes a weak chin?
A smaller jaw bone or less bone growth can cause poor chin projection.This is often due to genetics. The reduced bone volume as we age also gives the appearance of a weak chin.
When we age the bone of the lower jaw disappears slowly with time and this can create the appearance of a weakend chin and can affect the look of your lips, mid face and profile.
How can it be treated?
Non prominent chins can be augmented or filled with dermal fillers. Either Hyaluronic Acid or Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse) fillers can be used to increase projection of the chin.
Will I need repeat treatments?
Chin augmentation will last 6m to 1 year depending on the filler used.
Will it be painful?
Chin augmentation is not very painful. The chin may feel a bit firm with the new filler but this will settle in a few days. Numbing cream is also used.
What does it cost?
Please see the price list for chin fillers.
Are there any other treatments?
A more expensive but permanent solution may be a chin implant, but you will need to see a plastic surgeon for this.
What do I do after treatment?
I will clean the chin and give you an ice pack for comfort. I will ask you not to exercise for 24 hours and avoid resting on the chin for 1-2 days. You can take some paracetamol to help ease any discomfort. Minimal touching of the area is advised.
Some bruising may occur after chin fillers but this can recovered with makeup
