Listed below are the different procedures for chin augmentation.
1-Soft touch treatment: This is by far the simplest option. The patient is injected with a fine needle in the comfort of our office. This is available with or without local anaesthetics.
While this will give you an immediate result, it only lasts for 3-6 months. After this you will need another injection. Over time, however, the effect may begin to last longer, occasionally enduring up to 8 months. We recommend one treatment every 3 months for the first year, after which we will review the best way forward.
This treatment is provided at the same day of consultation in the office and may require local anaesthetic.
2-Surgical procedure: If you want a permanent solution then it’s best to go for the surgical option.
This is done in a hospital under either a local or general anaesthetic and takes around 60 minutes.
This procedure is simple and safe. It utilises your own fatty tissue or an implant to give you a long-lasting refinement to your mid-face.
If we use your own tissue there will be no scar. If we use an implant there will be a small 3-4 cm scar inside your mouth. This will heal, and the stitches will dissolve on their own.
For help deciding which treatment is best for you, book a consultation and discuss options with your surgeon.
