The restoration of facial harmony and improvement of contours of the chin, neck and jawline is the goal of chin augmentation. Gem clinic offers non-surgical chin augmentation which typically involves injecting fillers around your existing chin bone to augment the size and shape of the chin and achieve a more naturally attractive balance between facial features.
The chin a significant part of the face. Not only does it act as the lower part of the front jaw, it also serves as a safeguard when we are chewing food. Although many of us are born with tiny chins, they gain in size and differ in shape as we grow older and reach puberty.
Chin augmentation can be used to define and give a recessed/retruded chin more prominence. It’s amazing, how the shape of the chin is closely related to nose size. Meaning, a small chin may make a normal size nose look large, and vice versa.
Hence, nose augmentation and chin augmentation are often done together, to achieve a more naturally attractive balanced appearance between your facial features. Chin augmentation can also be done with neck or facelift, for better jawline definition.
Many people do not have a sharp, small chin that is considered beautiful. With effective procedures, you too can shape your jaw to meet your desired beauty standard. With specialised treatment like hyaluronic fillers, your chin can be shaped and contoured to fit your beauty target.
If you are concerned about your chin (recessed, retruded or “weak”), or you feel your facial features lack proportion, chin augmentation can help you feel more confident in your appearance.
- Improved facial harmony and naturally attractive balanced appearance between your facial features
- Corrected recessed chin
- Enhanced jawline definition and appearance
- Reduced appearance of double chin caused by retruded chin
Injection related risks and side effects such as mild pain, redness, bruises and itchiness are most commonly seen and they usually resolve spontaneously within a few days. The risk of bruising can be reduced by avoiding blood thinners or supplements like vitamin E, gingko, ginseng, ibuprofen and aspirin.
Client is advised to avoid putting pressure or massaging on the treated area and to avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours to avoid extra bruising. He or she should sleep with the face up and apply an ice pack wrapped in a thin cloth or a cold gel pack to reduce swelling and bruising.
