Why Is Our Chin Important
Lower face proportions contribute to overall facial balance. The region that highlights the lower face is the chin. When the chin is less than the ideal size, other facial areas tend to appear too large or too small. Inadequate chin projection makes the adjacent neck tissues look prematurely aged.
The shape of the chin is determined by the underlying bone and skeletal structure of the lower face. Above the bone are lower facial muscles and of course the soft tissue fat pads that frame the chin.
The best way to assess a chin is via a straight up view and a lateral view, where we look at two things – projection of the chin as well as the shape of the chin from the view straight up. Most of the time, we would like a well projected chin with a nice tapering down to form a heart shape.
How Should I Enhance The Chin?
We strive for non-surgical enhancements, achieved by using a combination of moderate hardness fillers such as Restylane Lyft or Restylane Defyne, which allow for versatile sculpting with low risk of injury to nerves. This also allows us touched ups to be done easily with minimal to no downtime. The procedure takes around 30 minutes. They can last between 12 – 24 months, depending on individual.
