Do I have a weak chin?
Hi, I have performed many Chin Augmentations using chin implants for over 30 years. From the photos, your chin is weak. A weak chin 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 chin implant 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, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty. I perform chin implant surgery in 30 minutes or less, often using a local anesthetic alone.
Hope this helps.
Is weak chin present?
There is some recession of your chin which could be improved with placement of a chin implant. The procedure would help to balance the view from your profile.
Weak Chin--Filler into the Chin and Jaw -- Cannulas with Radiesse, Perlane, or Voluma
I wouldn't call your chin weak, but this area can be increased/contoured with fillers if done by an expert. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in facial contouring to assess and treat you. Best, Dr. Emer.
