Ideal candidates for chin filler are adults in good general health, have realistic expectations, and have no known allergies to dermal filler and anesthetics. We recommend that our clients consider chin filler treatment if they have the following concerns: 

  • A receding chin
  • Insufficient vertical chin height
  • Gonial angle size that is either too small or too large
  • A small mandibular structure

Whether you have a chin that is recessed, asymmetrical, or a structural variant such as a cleft chin, chin augmentation can deliver transformative results. When done appropriately, it can also help hide the double chin or restore volume in the lower face as we age. Chin and jawline enhancements can also be great for men seeking a strong and chiseled jawline or for women longing for a profile that is more feminine and elongated. With different volumes and proportions, either masculine or feminine features can be further accentuated.

Reversibility: On the rare occasion that results do not align with expectations, hyaluronic acid products like can be dissolved with hyaluronidase, providing an additional layer of control and peace of mind.

Our injectors will make a customized plan depending on whether we are building a stronger chin, correcting a cleft chin, or restoring the lower face including the jawline and marionette zone. Our doctors will typically begin with a conservative amount and bring our clients back for further treatments until we've captured your envisioned outcome.

Do Chin and Jawline Filler Go Well Together?

Chin fillers can elegantly elongate and define your chin, bringing harmony to your facial features. Pairing this with jawline fillers can further enhance the definition of the lower face, creating a sharper, more contoured profile. We recommend an in-person consultation to assess whether combining these two treatments would be right for you. 

Is chin filler good for a round face? 

Chin filler can give you more definition and vertical length if you have a round face. Dermal fillers can be placed strategically to increase both the vertical height and horizontal projection of your chin, resulting in a stronger chin and a more angular appearance in the lower third of your face. Additionally, chin filler can be utilized to sculpt a particular shape, such as a pointed chin, which can contribute to a more heart-shaped facial contour if desired by our client. 

Is chin filler good for men?

Dermal filler treatments offer a solution that is both enduring and versatile, striking a balance that allows for natural-looking improvements. By customizing treatments to suit individual needs, chin fillers empower men to enhance their facial aesthetics, ultimately bolstering their confidence. 

How much does chin filler cost? 

At Sparrow MD, our dermal filler cost varies depending on the type of filler we choose. Chin filler treatment cost depends on the volume required to enhance your chin, which can vary significantly from one individual to another. We encourage you to schedule an appointment to have a conversation with one of our physicians to discuss your aesthetic goals. 

Chin implant vs chin filler: How do I decide? 

A chin implant will deliver a more pronounced result but involves a surgical procedure with some downtime. On the other hand, chin fillers offer a more immediate, non-invasive alternative that requires ongoing upkeep. If you're curious about the best chin shape for you, dermal fillers allow room for experimentation. Ultimately, the choice between fillers or an implant hinges on your facial needs and aesthetic goals.

Does chin filler cause significant bruising? 

Bruising after dermal filler treatment is completely normal. On the fortunate side, some of our patients do not experience any bruising at all. Most of our patients experiencing mild bruising that typically persists for a few days, though it can last up to a week or two in some cases. In most instances, dermal fillers settle within two weeks after treatment. Patients can generally cover up any bruising with makeup, and many have no issues returning to work shortly after their treatment.

What is the risk of migration with chin filler? 

Although it is theoretically possible for fillers to migrate, this side effect is exceptionally rare and can be largely prevented by selecting a skilled and qualified injector. At Sparrow MD, our doctors are highly trained and board-certified. Both Dr. Zhai and Dr. Van Dewark  are able to use facial ultrasound to guide treatments if necessary and finetune results as needed. At Sparrow MD, we prioritize post-treatment care and provide follow-up appointments after dermal filler treatments to ensure your well-being and the success of your treatment.
