Traditional surgery requires the implantation of shaped silicone and involves up to two weeks of downtime and pain. Instead, Dr. Hansen injects natural and safe fillers in precise areas of the chin in order to build it up and balance the profile for a natural look.
The procedure is generally performed in one or two 15-minute sessions, taking place about 3 weeks part. A topical numbing cream is applied for your comfort during the procedure, and then you may experience 2 to 3 days of minor swelling and tenderness. Results of your non-surgical procedure are very precise because the filler expands only to areas that are absolutely necessary to achieve the optimal cosmetic result.
The results will last up to two years. This allows for adjustment in the future as your face changes, so that you will always retain a natural look. Fillers used for the non-surgical chin augmentation include Bellafill®, Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®. Dr. Hansen selects the best filler for your particular needs.
