Chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to strengthen the appearance of a receding chin by increasing its projection. This procedure improves facial profile by creating a better balance between the chin and other facial features.
Dr. Blue’s non-surgical chin augmentation technique will correct a weak chin or receding chin and balance your profile without the pain, risk, and recovery time of surgical chin implants.
Traditional chin augmentation involves the surgical implantation of a shaped silicone, solid chin implant usually under general anesthesia. The surgery involves up to two weeks of swelling and pain. The results can be good, but can also be limited by the shape of the prefabricated implant. Dr. Blue uses Hyaluronic Acid injectable filler, rather than performing surgery for chin augmentation. A topical numbing cream is applied to prevent pain during the procedure. Small amounts of Hyaluronic Acid are then injected into precise areas building up the chin and bringing your profile into balance.
Results of non-surgical procedure are more precise because Dr. Blue expands only the areas that are absolutely necessary for the optimal cosmetic result. The procedure is normally performed in two 15-minute sessions, which take place about three weeks apart. You may experience two to three days of minor swelling and tenderness. The results will last about one year. This allows for adjustment in the future as your face changes, so that you will always retain a natural look.
