There’s no denying that a well-defined jawline is on the wish list of many men and women.  However, genetics, weight gain, and the aging process might make it difficult to achieve the contoured jawline you’ve always wanted.  When diet and exercise alone won’t lead to results, it’s time to discover non-surgical chin augmentation alternatives at Correa Plastic Surgery in The Woodlands, Texas.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are one of the best treatments for achieving a well-defined jawline without the need for invasive surgery.  These injections contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that adds instant lift and volume to the treatment site.  Dermal fillers are typically used to enhance volume in the cheek areas; however, they can be placed around the jawline and cheeks to offset a weaker chin.

Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that can reduce stubborn submental (chin) fat.  Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that dissolves fat cells upon contact while leaving surrounding tissue healthy and untouched.  Kybella results are long lasting, provided that the patient continue to follow a healthy lifestyle.

For patients with moderate- to- severe chin fat, Kybella can be combined with skin-tightening procedures to help produce a more augmented chin.

Surgical Chin Augmentation

For some patients, non-surgical chin augmentation may not be enough to achieve a more contoured, well-defined jawline.  In these cases, surgical chin augmentation may be the best choice.  Surgical chin augmentation can involve adding a chin implant or modifying the jawbone for a stronger chin.
