by Dr. Ramtin Kassir, M.D., F.A.C.S. | July 24, 2018, 1:23 p.m.
If you are looking to change the size, shape and overall appearance and projection of your chin, you might want to consider a nonsurgical chin augmentation. This technique is used to strengthen and define the jaw line by injecting temporary dermal fillers into the chin.
Dr. Kassir is the number one provider of dermal fillers in the New Jersey/New York area. The procedure is quick and comfortable with little-to-no downtime. The dermal fillers are strategically placed to give you a natural enhancement and build on the size and shape of your chin.
Dr. Kassir will gladly consult with you to see if you are a good candidate for a non-surgical chin augmentation. This procedure is suggested for patients with a weak facial profile, any trauma to the chin area, less defined jaw line or if you have a small and reduced chin. It is a great option if you would like to balance out your profile. You can request to see before and after pictures and go over the procedure in great detail if you have any additional questions.
Patients are expected to see results right away and these results can last anywhere from nine to fourteen months depending on the type of dermal filler. Being that this is a temporary fix, it allows for adjustments in the future if your face shape or facial proportions change.
