You may not realize it, but the size and shape of your chin can play a strong role in the overall beauty and balance of your face. While men and women seek different attributes in a chin, augmenting or enhancing this facial feature can create drastic improvements to how you look. It is common for patients to complain of a small, “weak” or undefined chin, which can disrupt the balance of the face and even make the nose appear too large.
Fortunately, there are ways to correct a small or weak chin. The two most common (but very different) methods are chin implant surgery and non-surgical facial fillers. As with any cosmetic procedure, deciding which one is right for you depends on several factors, including your individual needs, preferences and goals for chin enhancement.
How Should You Enhance Your Chin?
To help you choose between chin implant surgery and chin fillers, here is a brief list of the benefits of each:
Benefits of Chin Implants
- Permanent results
- One single procedure
- Dramatic improvements
- Resemble natural chin bone in look and feel
- Highly customizable in shape, size and chin projection
- Hidden scars
- Ideal when combined with other facial plastic surgeries
- Short, low risk surgical procedure
Benefits of Non-Surgical Fillers
- No surgery, downtime or recovery
- Less upfront cost than chin implants
- Quick, painless procedure
- No anesthesia required
- Safe, effective and well-tolerated by most patients
- Temporary in case you are unsure about results
The Bottom Line
Ultimately, the decision is up to you as to whether you want lasting chin enhancement using chin implants or prefer the “lesser commitment” of non-surgical fillers to define and reshape your chin. However, at Beverly Hills Center, we encourage patients to schedule a chin augmentation consult so that we can individualize the pros and cons based on personal needs and goals.
