Chin augmentation can be acheived with surgery or fillers
Chin augmentation is one of my favorite procedures because it's very predictable and it really makes faces look better.
Fortunately you have less invasive options than genioplasty.
- Surgical implants work very well, can be done in an hour, and have a 5-7 day recovery.
- Fillers may also be used to augment the chin in the office. Fillers vary from Perlane which is 100% reversible and soft, to Radiesse which is firmer and last long, to Artefill, which is permanent.
Using fillers is nice if you aren't certain and want a preview of having more chin.
Good luck in your search for information.

The photos you provide show someone who has undergone a chin implant. Chin implants come in many different shapes and sizes. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can best address your concerns to select the appropriate implant for your face to obtain the results you desire.
