Chin Augmentation with Dermal Fillers: An Alternative to Implants
By Sheryl Pilcher on October 07, 2017
The chin is one of the focal points of the face. A weak or receding chin can detract from an otherwise strong, attractive jawline, ultimately making the other facial features look out of proportion. Fortunately, plastic surgery offers a potentially ideal solution to this problem in the form of chin augmentation.
When most people think of chin augmentation, they probably envision a surgical procedure, and rightly so. Chin augmentation can be performed surgically, with the use of chin implants, to add volume to weak chins and improve the contours of the jawline. However, for those who do not wish to undergo an invasive surgical procedure, excellent jaw augmentation results can also be achieved through the use of injectable dermal fillers.
Dr. Sheryl Pilcher offers chin augmentation with dermal fillers at her San Antonio, TX plastic surgery practice, using her keen eye for aesthetics to produce the most natural-looking results possible. The results of treatment can last anywhere from three months to a year, and treatment can safely be repeated as necessary.
Are you dissatisfied with your appearance due to a weak or receding chin? Would you like to find out whether you are a good candidate for chin augmentation with dermal fillers? If so, please schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Sheryl Pilcher at Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A. today.
The Art of “Liquid” Chin Augmentation
Chin augmentation with dermal fillers, also known as “liquid” chin augmentation, requires a particularly artistic eye along with an intimate knowledge of the anatomical structures of the face and how they interrelate. A plastic surgeon cannot simply inject a dermal filler into the chin and make it more prominent; its relationship with the jaw, cheeks, neck, mouth, and underlying soft and hard tissues must all be taken into consideration. The plastic surgeon must have a keen understanding of how dermal fillers work so that they can be strategically injected in just the right areas and in just the right amounts.
Dr. Pilcher has mastered the art of liquid chin augmentation. She is able to assess each individual patient’s face and plan each chin augmentation so that fully customized results are achieved. Whether a patient requires a fuller, more defined jawline or simply improved projection of the chin, she is able to personalize results to his or her unique needs and goals.
Depending on the desired results, Dr. Pilcher will choose the type of dermal filler or might even elect to layer two different dermal fillers. It is important to note that the results of all dermal fillers are temporary, with results lasting generally between three months and one year. Treatment can be repeated as necessary; however, Dr. Pilcher recommends that patients undergo touch-up treatments before their results fade in order to maintain their desired appearances.
