Traditional chin augmentation involves the surgical implantation of a shaped silicone, solid chin implant 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.
Both Radiesse and Restylane are great options for augmenting the chin temporarily. Many patients have been extremely pleased with the result.
Smoothing out folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous difference to your appearance. With dermal fillers, facial rejuvenation can be carried out without the use of foreign elements. When treating wrinkles or folds, a dermal filler is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The injected gel produces natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. The results can be seen immediately. Treating wrinkles with a dermal filler is fast and safe and leaves no scars or other traces on the face.
Fillers can be used to augment the chin area as an alternative to a chin implant. The choice of filler depends on the objectives of the treatment. Generally, radiesse will provide a longer result and more firm.
Radiesse is an excellent filler for Chin Augmentation. The injection can be done in 15 to 20 minutes in the office with very precise results that can last a year or more. The benefits include- no operative downtime, precise contouring- the posterior jaw line can be shaped as well, a chance to see what a permanent implant can look like, very little risk of complications.
You can have bruising- this can last up to 10 days. Radiesse has very few complications when used correctly.
