When Would I Need a Touch-up from a Radiesse Chin Augmentation?
Radiesse lasts about 12 months whether it's used to augment the cheeks, chin, jaw or fill in the nasolabial folds. I performed hundreds of fat transfers in the early 1990's and found them unreliable enough to continue using it for facial augmentation. If you're looking for a permanent chin augmentation, IMHO, silastic chin implants are the best option.
Radiesse vs Fat for Chin Augmentation
I have done a lot of fat augmentation over the past 20+ years and continue to recommend this alternative because the improvement lasts significantly longer. Radiesse is easier but must be repeated yearly.

Radiesse would provide a more predictable and even filler for chin augmentation than fat which can be absorbed and is more deformable. Radiesse lasts for over a year and is relatively cheap when compared to Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane.
