Will augmenting my chin with fillers make it sag later when it wears off?

Worries about using fillers for chin augmentation
In terms of which filler would be best my recommendation is to go with a hyaluronic gel. This could be dissolved if for some reason you didn't like it. Recently available is Voluma which is a denser gel and a good choice for chin augmentation and cheekbones. Plus it lasts longer than any of the other HA gels.
If you want to "try on" a filler, then a more short term gel such as Restylane or Juvederm would be an option - and less expensive than Voluma.
There are fillers that are termed semi-permanent, but if you've never had filler in the area, you could regret the choice and those fillers are not removable.
In the instance that your weak chin requires more than filler, then an implant or even surgery that moves the bone forward is another option.
And "sometimes", a re-balance of the facial contours above the chin with fillers or Sculptra pulls the focus up and away.
Do some research and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon or a board certified dermatologist who does a lot of feature correction with fillers.
Fillers for weak chins won't cause sagging later.
