Chin implant after use of Fillers, Timing and options
Hi, For best result have your surgeon use Hyaluronidase ( an enzyme that dissolves the Restylane). After that your surgeon can make measurement for the most precise and predictable result. Hope this was helpful.
Chin implant after restylane injections
Restylane can provide a temporary improvement to the chin area. However, if you are not satisfied with the appearance from the restylane, then there is a product you can have injected to quickly remove what is left. This product is called hyaluronidase and will dissolve away the remaining restylane you have. After you remove the remaining restylane, the surgeon will have the proper idea as to what size chin implant works best for you. It usually takes 48 hours to dissolve away the remaining restylane. I hope this information helps.
Non-surgical Chin enlargement: not enough & looking for implant - management and timing
You could undergo alloplastic augmentation genioplasty, however, your surgeon would have to compensate with a larger implant to anticipate resorption of the restylane. Alternatively, you could undergo off-label injection of hyaluronidase to expedite resorption of the restylane and then proceeed with chin augmentation
