What to know about chin filler

A chin filler injection is a nonsurgical procedure that alters the contour and definition of the chin. It is a popular procedure for people who are self-conscious about their side profile and want a more balanced facial structure.

Chin fillers can create a stronger jawline, making the face appear more youthful. These injections can also add more definition between the face and neck.

Chin filler injections are relatively simple procedures that doctors perform in an office or clinic.

Chin fillers involve injecting temporary dermal fillers, which are gel-like substances, into the soft tissues of the jaw. They are an alternative to permanent chin implant surgery.

Anyone considering chin filler injections should speak with a board certified cosmetic surgeon. There are many fillers available, each with its risks and benefits, so people should discuss the options with a qualified medical professional.

Fillers can restore age-related volume loss in the face. People may choose chin filler to:

  • strengthen and define the chin
  • increase projection of the chin
  • improve facial symmetry
  • add proportion to the bottom of the face
  • contour the jawline
  • restore the structure of the lower face
  • change the contours of the chin
  • soften cleft chin

How long does it last?

There are several types of fillers, and they can all act differently. The filler type, treatment area, and an individual’s body chemistry affect how long chin fillers last. Generally, denser products injected more deeply last longer.

However, this is not always the case.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most temporary option, usually lasting 6–12 months. Therefore, doctors may recommend these options for people trying filler for the first time.

Another short-term option is calcium hydroxylapatite, a temporary dermal filler lasting around 12 months.

Soft tissue fillers are not FDA-approved for chin augmentation, so this use is considered off-label.

What to expect

Doctors typically perform chin filler injections during an office visit.

However, an individual should have a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon before the procedure. This visit gives them the opportunity to ask questions, discuss concerns, and learn about possible side effects. Additionally, the cosmetic surgeon will evaluate their chin and discuss medical history.

When a person returns for their chin filler procedure, the cosmetic surgeon cleans the area and may apply a numbing cream. They then inject a specific amount of filler strategically into the soft tissues of the chin.

Typically, people can see results immediately after receiving the injections. However, results may differ depending on the product and area of injection. Some people may experience mild swelling and bruising for a few days following the procedure.

A person can return to normal life right away, but the cosmetic surgeon may advise them to wait a day or two before exercising or partaking in other strenuous activities.
