Perioral Mounds Treatment
Lower Periorial Depressions & Dimpling May Be Helped By Volumizing Filler & Nonsurgical Chin Augmentation
My volumizing filler of choice for the chin, in my Upper East Side Manhattan practice, would be Voluma XC, and for the sides of the jaw, Restylane Lyft. (In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved fillers and volumizers are available, I would opt for Emervel Volume for the chin and Hyaluronica 2 for the sides.)
Treating these areas is not for novice injectors accustomed to injecting simple smile lines with ordinary fillers. So you would be wise to seek consultation and treatment by a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in advanced injection techniques. And of course, be sure to ask to see his/her before and after photos.
Before proceeding, you would be wise to also consider a dental consult to check to see if some bite irregularities are in any way contributing to your problem.
Good luck to you.

From the photo that you described it appears that you might benefit from fillers and/or braces to correct this problem area. Please consult an expert to assess the area. Best, Dr. Green
Dimpled area below lip
- This fullness is often from muscle -
- A trial of Botox would be my first suggestion.
- If the lower face has muscle imbalance - that can be times be corrected with braces, oral surgery or chin surgery.
- Neither liposuction nor filler is likely to be a good choice.
- I suggest you start with a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
