Facial dermal filler treatments are ideal for these kinds of aesthetic defects, so I ...

ABOUT OUR PATIENT After having a facelift over 20 years ago, this California woman in her 60's told herself she wasn't going to have surgery again. Her previous surgeon told her that she didn't have enough bone on the left side of her face, so the sagging she was experiencing was "permanent". After browsing through the before and after photographs she saw on my website, and checking out the amazi...
About Our Patient This patient is a California Bay Area man in his 50's. He was experiencing an issue with moderately loose skin under his eyes and around his neck. In short, this patient was starting to see the physical effect that gravity has on the face as we age. After visiting my downtown San Francisco office looking for information on face and neck liposuction, we came up with an appr...
Chin Augmentation and the Aging Face
As we age, the mandible (jawbone) gets smaller, and we begin to lose fat around the mouth and chin. These gradual changes can cause marionette lines, thinning and wrinkling around the lips, as well as contribute to jowling. Injectable fillers can be placed both around the mouth and along the chin to add volume to the face and create a more youthful appearance.
How Is Chin Augmentation Performed?
The non-surgical chin augmentation technique places a dermal filler such as RADIESSE®, JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC under the skin using a needle or microcannula to add volume and projection to the chin.
Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation with Radiesse®
How Long Will The Results Last?
Dr. Mabrie’s preferred filler is RADIESSE, which lasts up to 1 year with touch-ups at 6-month intervals. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC results can last up to 2 years. For patients who desire short-term results, Dr. Mabrie offers fillers such as Perlane®, which last up to 6 months with touch-ups at 3-month intervals.
Individuals with severely weak chins are usually better candidates for surgical chin augmentation.
For patients who are not 100% sure about receiving fillers, Dr. Mabrie can inject saline into the chin to provide a 10-minute illustration of the potential filler results.
