The chin plays a vital role in the shape and balance of the face. When the chin is recessed or less defined, it can impact the facial profile and make the upper facial features seem larger. A chin augmentation can restore balance to the face or make features like the nose blend with the face. At Uptown Body Contouring, we offer non-surgical solutions for enhancing the chin. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio can perform chin filler injections to reshape a small chin at our clinic in NYC.
Adding projection and width to the chin can define the lower face and jawline. Genetics, disease and aging can all impact the size and shape of the chin – the only way to change the shape is through cosmetic procedures. Chin implants can permanently change the shape, but they require plastic surgery. Chin fillers can provide a temporary enhancement with a non-invasive procedure. This is a great way for patients to “try on” a chin augmentation before deciding whether to have chin augmentation surgery.
Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation
Chin filler injections can be performed at our medical clinic in Manhattan in about a half hour. Dr. Del Vecchio takes the time to discuss the aesthetic goals of the patient and determines the best fillers and techniques to achieve the desired results. The procedure is not painful, and no downtime is needed after the treatment. Multiple injections are used to add facial filler in the appropriate areas around the chin. The results are almost immediate and can last for a year or longer after the treatment. Patients can go back to work or their regular activities after their appointment. The most common side effects are swelling or bruising from the injections, but these effects dissipate over the following days.
If your nose seems too large or your jaw lacks definition due to a small chin, augmentation with chin filler may be right for you. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is a board certified plastic surgeon who can create the artistic, natural results you desire to enhance your chin and profile.
