One of the key elements of an attractive face is a strong and proportionate chin. An ample chin can help to create symmetry, add definition and bring balance to facial features. Chin augmentation can be performed using chin implant plastic surgery, but not every patient may be prepared for a surgical procedure. Patients who want to avoid surgery may consider non-surgical chin augmentation using Radiesse dermal filler.
People with a moderately recessive or undermined chin may be good candidates for non-surgical chin augmentation. Sometimes a patient may choose this procedure as a prelude to chin augmentation surgery. MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, provides non-surgical chin augmentation to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.
To perform chin augmentation without involving plastic surgery, the treatment provider may use Radiesse facial filler injections. This procedure can be performed in-office in a single treatment session lasting less than 20 minutes, and the patient can simply return to their normal routine after the treatment. The provider will apply a local anesthetic injection or a topical numbing cream to the targeted area of injections around the chin.
Radiesse filler gel will be administered through a very small needle or a micro cannula in the marked areas of the chin. The gel will reach the deeper skin layers to add volume and projection to the chin. Radiesse filler gel is composed of calcium microspheres, which do not disintegrate easily. Therefore, the patient can enjoy longer lasting results with Radiesse than with many other filler injections.
Recovery and Results
Chin augmentation effects with a single Radiesse injectable treatment can last for up to one year. Some patients may have to receive touch up treatments at six-month intervals. The patient will experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, and post-treatment bruising will be low. Swelling may last for two to three days after the procedure.
Radiesse injectable chin enhancement procedure will avoid the typical risks and complications that are associated with a chin implant surgery. Common problems such as infection and scar tissue are avoided with Radiesse chin augmentation procedure. This FDA approved treatment is highly safe as long as it is performed by a qualified and experienced dermal filler provider.
Each patient has a unique facial anatomy and chin appearance. At the same time, the aesthetic perspectives and requirements will also vary from one patient to another. Therefore, an experienced Radiesse chin augmentation treatment provider will create a customized injection plan after taking various factors into account.
In some cases, Radiesse chin augmentation may be combined with other injectable fillers such as Juvederm Voluma. Chin and nose are often addressed together to maintain facial balance. Botox or filler injections may be used for the nose to create the right balance between the nose and the chin.
