Liquid Chin Augmentation in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, Miami, and South Florida
A SAFE AND EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO CHIN IMPLANTS
A number of patients desire improvement in the appearance of a poorly defined, underprojected chin. A strong chin can help add definition and balance to the other facial features. For patients who desire a non-surgical solution or are interested in seeing potential results before undergoing surgery, chin augmentation with filler is an excellent option.
There is an art to a liquid chin augmentation. The injector must understand not only the anatomy of the chin, but also the three-dimensional contours presented by the soft tissues and underlying skeletal framework. The chin is one of defining features of the face, giving shape to the face, and neck as well. And with aging, the chin tends to lose volume and projection. Fortunately, a natural chin enhancement can help to return the chin to a more youthful state without looking ‘fake’ or unnatural.
Dr. Ryan Greene is a master injector who understands the art of chin augmentation. After thousands of filler injections, he is a respected authority on facial fillers, serving as a national trainer for Allergan (the makers of Juvederm and Voluma). His goal is always to create natural and long-lasting results.
Even with a modest amount of filler, the chin can have a noticeable improvement. This can also help to define the jawline, and in many cases, provide the patient with a more tightened look to their neck. But even for patients who simply desire some forward projection of their chin, filler can provide impressive improvement.
Juvederm Voluma and Radiesse are common fillers used by Dr. Greene for treatment of the chin. Depending on the patient’s desires and their facial features, Dr. Greene will select a treatment plan to create a well-defined chin. And while many patients assume that these treatments are painful, discomfort can be virtually eliminated with Dr. Greene’s specially formulated anesthetic cream and injection technique.
