What is a Liquid Chin Augmentation?

Patients seeking subtle yet flattering chin augmentation can turn to non-surgical dermal fillers with excellent results. A liquid chin augmentation procedure can enhance the chin’s projection, create a wider jawline, correct a cleft chin, and reduce asymmetry. This approach can also help clients “try on” the results of a chin implant before committing to the surgery.

How it Works

Non-surgical (liquid) chin augmentation is performed using hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring compound in the human body that binds to water molecules to hydrate and firm the skin.

When injected, HA-based fillers can add natural-looking volume to the face, enhancing the contours of the chin bone. Over time, the filler is safely broken down and discarded by the body; there is little to no risk of allergic reaction.

Your Customized Treatment Plan

Each chin is different, and Dr. Parakh will create a personalized plan of action to resolve your aesthetic concerns, choosing the ideal combination of dermal fillers that are right for you. Prior to your injections, the skin is cleansed and numbed with a topical anesthetic to ensure your complete comfort. The fillers are then used to create a more proportionate, harmonized chin that is a perfect fit for the rest of the facial features in terms of size, shape, and projection. A liquid chin augmentation takes around 30 minutes to complete.

What Happens After My Session?

Patients enjoy liquid chin augmentation because the treatment comes with no downtime or recovery. Normal activities like work or school can be resumed immediately. However, there are a few tips to bear in mind:

  • Refrain from strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Avoid touching, rubbing, or otherwise disturbing the chin
  • Stay away from Ibuprofen products and alcohol before and after
  • Make use of a cold compress to minimize swelling
  • Postpone exposure to intense heat and sunlight for 24-48 hours

Your Liquid Chin Augmentation Results

Patients can typically achieve their ideal outcome with a single liquid chin augmentation session. Results can be seen right away, with patients noticing enhanced definition in the jawline and a more balanced, aesthetically pleasing profile. Depending on the exact fillers chosen, results can last from 12-24 months before an additional touch-up appointment is needed.

Additional Treatment Options

For those seeking more permanent changes in the chin, a surgical procedure with implants can be performed. If a double chin is of concern, Dr. Parakh offers Kybella injections to reduce stubborn submental fat that does not respond to dieting and exercise. Speak with Dr. Parakh about any additional aesthetic issues you wish to address during your private consultation.

FAQ

What are the risks?

Can a liquid chin augmentation be combined with other procedures?

What are the risks?

Since a liquid chin augmentation is non-surgical and non-invasive, complications are rare, especially when the procedure is guided by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Parakh. Risks may include swelling, bruising, infection, temporary numbness, and contour irregularities.

Can a liquid chin augmentation be combined with other procedures?

Yes. Many patients choose to undergo a liquid facelift or liquid rhinoplasty at the same time as their non-surgical chin augmentation. A liquid chin augmentation can also be combined with surgical rhinoplasty to balance the profile and enhance harmony among the features.
