The best way to enhance the mandibular angles
There is no doubt that mandibular angle implants are the way to go for the best looking and permanent result. They are put in through the mouth in the back behind the molar teeth, the operation takes about one hour. There is considerable swelling initially that even possibly for the first few weeks. Other volumizers such as fat and fillers cannot accentuate the shape of the angle the best and at best are only temporary for a matter of months, requiring over a long period of time considerable expense and many injections.
Implants or fillers for a stronger jaw angle
- Leave the successful implant as is, Fillers and implants are both options.
- Consider Radiesse as a filler to see if that works well for you,
- If that does not get you the improvement you want, have the implants.
Chin implant vs fillers for jaw bone an chin correction
The chin implant can be used and it can improve anatomy if combined with other implants when needed.
Filler has been used in our office for chin augmentation if there is no desire for surgery.
