Before chin augmentation the facial and jaw structure have to be checked to decide if chin augmentation is suitable for you or not.
Chin augmentation is not suitable for people with overbite with receding jaw where augmentation of the chin can make the chin crease deeper and not aesthetic, Also in some cases a strong chin can suite some people while a rounded chin can suite people to soften their facial structure. In some cases surgical correction of the jaw is require to get the best sethetic results.
Pain tolerance varies with each patient, but to help lessen any possible pain we will apply a special topical numbing cream. This works to make things a little more comfortable and some dermal fillers also contain anaesthetic to reduce the pain of the procedure as much as possible.
A chin enhancement with dermal fillers is part-technique and part-aesthetic , which is why we work closely with you to understand the look you are hoping for.
To help reduce the risk of piercing a blood vessel, our team use a cannula or needle to administer the dermal fillers to the chin area. This will also reduce the risk of bruising or intravascular injection of the filler.
You might experience some slight swelling, dull aching, or minor bruising under the skin for a few days. The swelling would be minimal and will usually subside relatively quickly. However, with almost instantaneous results, the chin augmentation procedure is highly recommended for those wanting a perfectly framed face.
At our Chelsea Heights location, we only have the facilities to handle all surgical procedures, double chin injections, anti-wrinkle muscle relaxant, and dermal fillers (liquid face lifts, lip fillers and nose jobs). The Templestowe Clinic can handle all procedures detailed on this website.
