Chin enhancement - Chin correction: lifting the chin (augmentation) - chin reduction - correcting a double chin
Lifting the chin:
- Enhancing an underdeveloped chin with injectable fillers.
- Lipofilling - Lipostructure: Chin or jaw enhancement with the patient's own fat.
- Inserting chin or jaw prostheses - implants
Removing excess fat and / or skin.
- Liposculpture - liposuction: removing a double chin
- Neck correction - Neck lift
Fillers for lifting a regressed or underdeveloped chin.
We can enhance your chin with injectables or with your own fat: a few injections with a filler are often sufficient to achieve the desired result. We often also add some volume to the jawline and cheekbones which creates more youthful curves. An oddly-shaped nose can also be visibly improved.
The aim of chin enhancing treatment is to make the nose and chin look in proportion.
Often a small correction of just a few millimeters is enough to achieve the desired results.
Chin Enhancement: Injectable Fillers
A slightly regressed or underdeveloped chin can be easily lifted using an injectable filler. We distinguish between the two types of fillers:
1. biodegradable fillers
2. non-biodegradable fillers
Biodegradable fillers are broken down by the body over time which means that their effect slowly disappears. The best known injectables used to enhance the chin are based on hyaluronic acid.
The advantage of biodegradable fillers is that the result lasts for up to two years, the treatment can then be repeated.
The new generation of injectables are also used for facial rejuvenation and to fill wrinkles:
Liquid facelift technique.
The advantage of non-biodegradable fillers is that you just need one single treatment, with a possible touch up. The result is permanent.
Chin Enhancement: Injections of the patient's own fat
Lipofilling, lipostructure - also called fat transfer or fat transplantation - is a very successful treatment for enlarging an undersized chin or softening a chin which is too pointed. We use excess fat from the stomach or the hips to give extra shape and volume to your chin.
Lipostructure is an improved lipofilling technique. Lipostructure (improved Coleman lipofilling method) is intensively used all over the world to improve the shape and proportions of the face.
The results of lipostructure are more predictable than lipofilling. The results of the treatment are also permanent.
Chin Enhancement: Implant - Prosthesis
Chin and jaw prostheses: By inserting a chin or jaw implant the profile of your face can look more balanced: the proportion between the nose, chin and jaw is improved. Read more.
- Chin prosthesis - Chin implant
- Liposculpture of the neck
- An undersized chin can be lifted or enlarged.
- An oversized chin can be reduced.
Liposculpture for a double chin
- Liposculpture - Liposuction of the neck and jawline.
Neck Lift Correction
- Neck lift + SMAS muscle (platysmal) band correction
- SMAS Facelift
- Upper eyelid correction
Liposculpture - Neck lift: Double chin
The skin at the neck can become slack and start to sag. Fat can collect there which means that the jawline is less firm.
A double chin is usually the result of:
- fat deposits
- excess, sagging skin
- slack muscles at the base of the mouth and/or neck
Fortunately there is a tailor-made solution to every problem:
- Liposculpture of the neck: Liposuction of the fat in the neck and under the chin.
- Neck Lift: SMAS correction + lifting + removal of excess skin.
- Correction of the neck muscles = Platsymaplasty.
The results for neck correction and liposculpture of the neck are permanent.
Chin reduction: Bone-sculpture
Bone-sculpture for the chin is a plastic surgical technique to reshape the chin's existing bone structure.
A small change of just a few millimeters can result in a significant visible improvement.
