Chin Augmentation with Soft Tissue Fillers
What is chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers?
Chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure for chin augmentation. Synthetic fillers like Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and silicone can be used, or alternatively an autologous fat transfer procedure can take advantage of the patient's own fat tissue via liposuction. Chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers restores a more youthful chin, neck, and jawline appearance while improving the contours and symmetry of the face.
Unlike chin implant or genioplasty procedures, no incisions are made and there is no risk of scarring. A chin augmentation procedure is often combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as a rhinoplasty, neck lift, or facelift to further enhance the results and overall facial features.
What cosmetic concerns does a chin augmentation with soft tissue fillers procedure treat?

Injectables can correct a receding chin, weak chin, small chin, double chin, recessed chin, and other deformities of the chin bone.
