Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation in Omaha, Nebraska
Having strong facial features or facial structure is a sign of youth and beauty, though preferences differ from person to person. For both men and women, a weak chin can truly hinder the appearance of the profile. Until now, the only option for chin enhancement or jawline augmentation was plastic surgery. Finally, Resytlane has achieved FDA Approval for their Defyne Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler to be used for non-surgical chin augmentation.
Do you feel like your lower face is too small or set back? The first step in determining if you have a weak chin or chin retrusion is with a pen test. Hold the pen from the top of your nose to your bottom lip; if your chin is more than a few millimeters behind the pen, you may have chin retrusion.
If your chin lacks desirable projection, cosmetic surgery could be avoided with Restylane Defyne chin filler. If you’re jawline definition is hindered by double-chin volume or fat, Imagen has minimally invasive options for you to consider including Liposuction, CoolSculpting, or our Renuvion neck lift.
What Makes A Strong Profile?
The key ingredients for a well defined jawline and perfect chin projection include bone, muscle and fat. Omaha Cosmetic Center by Imagen offers options to address each of these elements. During your your free consultation at Imagen, one of our board-certified injectors will create a custom treatment plan that can include Restylane Dyfine or Juvederm Voluma, Botox or Dysport, Liposuction, Fat Transfer, and/or a Renuvion Face Lift.

Bone: Mandibular Angle
A well defined mandibular angle is essential for a sculpted jawline. The mandibular bone is the largest facial bone and creates the line that connects your lower ear to your chin. The mandible angle is essentially the portion of the jaw that shapes the face and creates a line of separation from the neck. This line tends to be more prominent in men than women. If your goal is to achieve a more sculpted jawline but avoid cosmetic surgery, non-surgical chin augmentation with FDA-Approved Chin Filler, Resytlane Defyne, can create the illusion of a more prominent bone structure.
In contrast to men who tend to desire a more prominent mandibular angle, women with a “strong jaw” or square shape to their face often achieve a facial reshaping or facial feminization with Botox injections to the masseter muscle. When you clench your jaw, you’re using this jaw muscle, and in some women, a strong masseter can create a undesired shape. By softening this muscle, men or women can achieve a more tapered and slender jawline.
Fat: Aging & Weight Loss
For most of our lives, we’ve been trained to believe that fat is bad. When it comes to the youthfulness of our face, fat is very good! As we age and our facial fat breaks down, some lose volume in desired places and the skin around the chin and jawline can begin to sag. Jowls are a common side-effect of aging, that can create the illusion that we’re frowning. During this season of life, some believe a face lift or neck lift is their only option, however Imagen often uses liposuction with a fat transfer to address facial aging.

Perks of Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Hyaluronic Acid fillers are also dissolvable, so if you’re unsatisfied with the results of your chin fillers, one of our injectors can
How Long does Non-Surgical Chin Filler Last?
The duration of the the filler depends on the patient and the filler used. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural occurring substance in the body which breaks down over time. Some are still enjoying their results more than a year after optimal injection. All patients are different and individual healing times and results may vary.
