Do I have weak chin ? (photos)

I like your chin
Voluma is an awesome product to "try something out" without a long term commitment. Voluma is a 2-year hyaluronic acid filler, and I have used it to widen a chin and also to lengthen a chin, even though these are currently "off-label" uses in the USA. I've even modified chins, for example filling in an unwanted cleft (even though I really like clefted chins.) After an injection, you can see an immediate change without surgery, and without risks of surgery. It can even be undone just as easily with some hyaluronidase.
Surgery is not easy to reverse. Voluma is easy to re-do or adapt. Good luck and best regards, Marla Klein MD
Thank you for your question hauhz. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. It works well for those with a little extra fat in the area that is resistant to diet and exercise. If I had a patient who looked like the person in these photographs I would say she is a good candidate for Kybella treatments. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
You have a lovely chin
Based on your photos, you look to have a lovely chin on a lovely face. I don't think you need anything done.

Benefits of Kybella include:
-FDA-approved for use on fat underneath the chin. Allows more control then coolsculpting over the treatment area
-Minimally invasive -No downtime -Reduced fat underneath the chin
-No general anesthesia
-Very rare and minimal side effects (typically bruising, pain, and redness at the injection points)
If you are interested, I recommend consulting with a qualified physician for a full consultation.
Chin and Kybella
You appear in your photo to have a great chin and have no need for Kybella or any other cosmetic injections. Best, Dr. Green
If you have less than 1/4 of an inch of space you have a weak chin. If you have more than 1/4 of an inch you have a large chin.
A non surgical option to enhance chin projection includes the use of fillers.
