Perfect Jawline; Chin Implant Vs Fillers

Perfect Jawline

Lip injections have been the star of the facial cosmetic enhancement scene among young people for seems like eternity. Now, there is a new trend that is taking over social media with stride. With the help of internet personalities, jawline and chin enhancements are the new way to improve your look.

Traditionally, chin implants were the procedure of choice for anyone interested in chin augmentations. However, implants have a number of disadvantages and shortcomings that in many situations make them an unappealing solution. Placement of an implant is a surgical procedure that carries certain risks and requires about a week of downtime for healing. The customization of implants is fairly limited, sometimes resulting in a less than ideal chin contour. If the patient is not completely happy with the results, removing or replacing an implant requires another surgery, which could potentially lead to complications.

Chin fillers have none of these shortcomings. The procedure is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and hardly requires any downtime. Chin fillers are a great way to enhance, contour and improve the balance of the lower face while being customizable to each patient’s individual facial structure and aesthetic needs. If additional enhancement is desired, more filler could easily be added during the following visit. Ideally, if the patient is not happy with the results, chin filler could be completely or partially dissolved. The major downside of a chin augmentation with fillers is it’s limited longevity. In order to maintain the desired result, re-injection would be required every 1-2 years. In addition, fillers might lack the firm structure of an implant making it less effective in situations when significant projection is required.

Given the advantages of fillers over the more conventional approach of chin augmentation surgery, filler injections work best for people who are new to cosmetic enhancements of the face. With fillers, one can take a more gradual approach to chin enhancement to find and customize the best shape and projection of the chin for each patient. Once this is established, a permanent enhancement such as a chin implant can be used. Always talk to your doctor and consult a specialist such as New York’s facial rejuvenation expert Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich, to find the best chin enhancement option that fits your needs.
