Dermal filler injections into the chin can achieve many different aesthetic goals that patients look for. The procedure is becoming more popular among women and men because of what it can do for overall facial aesthetics and symmetry. Let’s look at the question, “What does filler in the chin do?’
Firstly, chin filler can increase the projection of the chin. For people who naturally have or developed a recessed chin, filler can help bring the chin into alignment with the rest of the facial features. This helps create a more harmonious facial appearance and can even make patients look younger in some situations.
Chin filler can also contribute to other aesthetic goals. For example, adding projection to the chin also elongates the jawline. This helps create a sharper and more defined jawline as well. This may also disguise the look of a slight double chin in some patients. Additionally, if a patient is interested in a chin implant but wants to see how it would look on them first, chin filler allows them to essentially “try on” the results temporarily.
