Chin augmentation adds volume to your chin to create more balanced and proportionate facial contours. During the procedure, Dr. Kerendian sculpts and augments your jawline and chin to correct asymmetry. He may use dermal fillers or chin implants to enhance your chin’s shape.
Some of the numerous benefits you can obtain from chin augmentation include:
To determine if you’re a good candidate for chin augmentation, Dr. Kerendian reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines your chin.
You might be a good candidate for the procedure if you’re in good health but have a receding chin, undefined chin, weak chin, or facial asymmetry.
Dr. Kerendian might recommend one of the following chin augmentation procedures to help you achieve the best outcome:
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables Dr. Kerendian can distribute just beneath your skin to add volume to it. He first numbs the area, so you don’t feel any discomfort. While dermal fillers aren’t a permanent solution, they’re long-lasting. Periodic follow-up injections help you maintain your desired results.
While you’re under local anesthesia, Dr. Kerendian makes an incision just beneath your chin and places an implant under the skin. He stitches the incision closed and bandages or tapes the area to optimize healing. You can go home on the day of the procedure but must have someone drive you there.
After chin implant surgery or chin injections, you might experience swelling, redness, or bruising. Follow your aftercare instructions to optimize healing. Take medications as prescribed and ice the treatment area to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Take it easy until Dr. Kerendian OKs physical activity. While fillers are temporary, chin implants are a permanent solution for a weak chin.
Don’t live with undesirable facial contours or asymmetry when simple chin augmentation procedures are available at Desired Beauty. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Kerendian and his team by phone or online today.
