Chin Implant or ChinPlant?
American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) President Malcolm Z. Roth, MD commented that:
“The chin and jawline are among the first areas to show signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery … We also know that as more people see themselves on video chat technology, they may notice that their jawline is not as sharp as they want it to be. Chin implants can make a dramatic difference.”
Actual implants require surgery and don’t come without possible problems like shifting, visibility and post-implant infections. But they are permanent and you can be asleep while they’re placed beneath the skin.
Why not “try one on”?
Even if you think you really want a chin implant, a simple “try on” with an injectable product (either temporary like Perlane – or long term like Radiesse or new Voluma) can be a good way to see if you like that new look. And also a great way to gauge just how prominent you want your new chin to be.
Instantly strengthen the jawline
An injectable “chinplant” can’t correct a severe receding chin, but most certainly can strengthen the jawline and minimize the visual impact of excess or loose skin in the neck.
Radiesse, Perlane or Voluma can be injected with smooth tip cannulas for painfree treatment with no bruising.
