Chin Non-Surgical Augmentation
A nice chin adds balance and definition to the face. Not everyone is born with the perfect chin and through the process of aging, the chin (along with all the bones and subcutaneous structures) can become “weaker” in its structure.
Patients who prefer an alternative chin structure now have an important alternative to chin surgery. Jawline contouring using surgery has many risks including scarring, infection, and anesthesia complications. Therefore, non surgical chin augmentation (or chin augmentation with fillers) is becoming more popular. Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation might have some swelling or bruising at the site of the injection, but overall requires almost no recovery.
Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation is a safe, non-invasive alternative to jawline contouring. Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation involves injecting a filler such as Radiesse (Radiesse jawline!) or Hylauronic acid fillers such as (Restylane, Voluma or Juvederm) into precise dermal planes of the chin to create a more aesthetic length, depth or prominence to the lower face. When looking at jawline filler before and after photos, patients are always surprised by the subtly.
Women always appreciate having a more youthful neck and jaw and using fillers is a great first step to create a more pronounced demarcation between the face and the neck. In men, having a strong jawline and a “manly strong chin” creates a more balanced aesthetic facial contour. In both sexes, non surgical chin augmentation and jawline contouring is an important aspect of facial contouring.
Like the use of any other dermal fillers, chin augmentation is an art. Natural looking chin augmentation and jawline contouring requires full respect of the 3D structures of the soft tissues and underlying skeletal framework, and a calibrated hand for precise placement of the exact amounts of the correct fillers.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
