The chin is instrumental is creating a balanced profile and facial harmony. It acts as an important counter balance to the nose.
Chin augmentation can be performed either surgically or non-surgically.
Surgically, the chin is modified with either an implant or using your own bone. Both options provide you with much longer-lasting results compared to dermal fillers. Both the bone and the chin implant can be contoured to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Non-surgically, the chin shape and contour can be altered using dermal fillers as volume, or even your own fat can be used. Chin augmentation with fillers is minimally invasive, and the results last for about a year.

The best candidates for chin augmentation are clients:
If you have undergone chin augmentation with an implant or your own bone, there will be some swelling and bruising for about one week. A dressing will be applied directly after surgery to keep the chin’s new shape intact and these will be removed after a few days.
If you have undergone chin enhancement with injectables, then your recovery will be much shorter, and you will be back in action the same day as your treatment. In either case, Dr. Lee will provide a customized set of aftercare instructions for you, and will see you for follow up visits to ensure your healing is on track.
