3 Options to Better Define Your Chin

Posted on May 28, 2021

Face - PugaoThe chin: for such a small feature, it plays a big role in your appearance. When it isn’t properly defined, it can make the whole face look weaker and unbalanced. With chin augmentation, you can take control over your facial contours and add greater harmony to your looks.

Keep in mind that enhancing your chin doesn’t have to mean surgery. There are three chin augmentation options and only one involves going under the knife. 

  1. Fat Transfer

    We all have a little extra fat somewhere on our bodies that we’d like to get rid of. Rather than just removing it, you can have it purified and then used in a chin fat grafting procedure. The entire process is done under local anesthesia, from fat harvesting to injecting the purified cells into the chin. 

  2. Filler

    If the process of harvesting fat cells isn’t appealing to you, dermal fillers could be a great alternative. While these are not permanent, they are a good way to test drive a fuller chin or just get great results in minimal time. 

  3. Implants

    Chin implants are inserted during a surgical procedure. Depending upon your preference, this can be gone under general anesthesia or sedation with a local anesthetic. Chin implants are permanent and offer well-defined results. 

Of these three options, none is inherently superior to the others. However, one will be best for you in terms of your needs and meeting your goals. To learn more about chin augmentation, sit down for a consultation with Dr. Pugao. Call the office at 575-521-7111 or fill out our contact form.
