Can fillers help soften the prominence of my chin?
If however the chin is weak, this creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a dermal filler or a chin implant (for a permanent enhancement) will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick and highly effective.
If on profile the chin is "too strong", the chin can be rasped down or the lips can be augmented following the proper aesthetic proportion. Ideally proportioned lips have the ability to soften the lower face and will take emphasis away from the chin and nasal areas.Hope this helps.
Best wishes and good luck.
