I know it doesn't last as long, but is chin augmentation using Radiesse or Restylane less effective or not as natural as a surgical implant?
Any Negatives to Using Radiesse or Restylane for Chin Augmentation?

Disadvantage to NS Chin Augmentation
In my opinion, the ONLY disadvantage to using Radiesse (I don't believe Restylane is a good filler for the chin) is that it is temporary. Other than that, it is a wonderful tool to use for chin augmentation, especially because the procedure can be guided in real-time by the patient.
Why Filler vs Implant for Chin Augmentation but him
We use Juvederm for chin augmentation.
The only negatives to chin augmentation with fillers are that, as you say, it is not permanent, and that poor injection technique can lead to a bad result.
In Manhattan, we use Juvederm. Restylane does not last as long, and Radiesse, when injected very deep, can lead to unwanted bone formation.

Radiesse in the chin is temporary and requires expert skin to ensure that it looks natural. Consult with an experienced and expert board certified plastic surgeon to understand your options.
Non- Surgical Chin Enhancement with Radiesse
A chin enhancement is a very quick and easy treatment that produces immediate results with no downtime. Dr. Ebrahim prefers to use Radiesse as it is a thicker product that provides a very good result.
Filler versus chin implant
Negatives to the use of Radiesse and Restylane for chin augmentation (genioplasty)
Chin augmentation (or genioplasty) with fillers are just as natural as a surgical implant. However, given the non-permanency of Radiesse or Restylane, an implant is probably more cost effective. Depending on the amount of augmentation you need, this may cost you anywhere from $400 to $1000+. Chin implant surgery may cost from $2000 to $4000 depending on the geographic location, experience of the surgeon and other factors. After only one to two years, you can see how it may be more beneficial to choose surgical chin augmentation. Also, most implants used can easily be removed without any untoward side effects if you are unhappy with the results.
Negatives to Radiesse or Restylane
A filler, such as Restylane or Radiesse is as effective and natural as an implant, but the downside is that it isn't permanent and will require that you come back for more product as it is dissolved overtime. A surgical implant is the only permanent solution for chin augmentation.
Any Negatives to Using Radiesse or Restylane for Chin Augmentation
Radiesse and Restylane and Juvederm will give great results for chin augmentation with proper injection techniques. The main problem is lack of permanency. Cost wise it would be better to have a chin implant procedure which is permanent.
