Chin Filler

with DrBfixin in Long Island, NY

The chin makes up the focal point of the bottom third of the face. A weak or recessed chin can cause several appearances that a patient may not like. Chin augmentation can improve facial balance and create a more attractive profile. There are two methods cosmetic providers use to increase the size and projection of the chin: surgical placement of a chin implant and chin filler injections. Cameo Surgery Center provides the best chin filler Long Island and NYC offer.

Overview: What Is Chin Filler?

Chin filler refers to a procedure where a medical provider injects dermal fillers into the chin. The goal is to make the chin project more, bigger, and sometimes have a more attractive shape. Filler is non-surgical and non-permanent. However, this may be ideal for some patients. For example, those who only need a small enhancement or are not ready to commit to a permanent chin implant..

Benefits & Risks

While less invasive than surgery, chin filler does come with benefits and risks that patients must consider. Overall, chin filler is a safe procedure with few major risks for the average patient.

The benefits of Long Island chin filler injections may include:

  • Obtain desired and ideal chin shape
  • Balance facial features
  • Correct facial asymmetry
  • Help create a slimmer looking jawline
  • Correct a recessed chin
  • Achieve more of a heart-shaped face
  • Reduce the appearance of a round face
  • Enhance side profile
  • Help reverse signs of aging
  • Achieve a more feminine or masculine facial appearance
  • Non-surgical
  • Instant results
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Performed by an experienced and expert injector

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation Filler Options

An injector can use a few different types of filler for chin enhancement. The right filler will depend on the anatomy of the chin and the goal result. Dr. B or an injector will work closely with the patient to determine the right facial filler to enhance their chin. The most commonly used chin fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers, but semi-permanent fillers can also help augment the chin.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid fillers—or HA fillers—use an injectable form of hyaluronic acid to add volume to targeted areas. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body and is a common ingredient in hydrating skincare products. It is a known humectant which means that it draws in water which can also help it plump more. Certain HA fillers will plump up more than others.

Restylane and Juvederm are the two primary hyaluronic acid filler brands. Both have options that can work well in the chin. Another benefit of choosing HA fillers is that they are dissolvable. This helps reduce risk and allows patients to have less of a commitment to the results. 


Radiesse is a semi-permanent injectable filler that contains calcium hydroxyapatite gel microspheres. Calcium and phosphorus ions are found naturally in the body. Radiesse is considered hypoallergenic, nontoxic, and a safe injectable option. Originally, physicians used Sculptra to help fill out the faces of people with certain autoimmune conditions like HIV where symptoms can include a thinning face. 

Unlike HA fillers, Radiesse is not dissolvable, but it can work well for patients with a more prominently recessed chin. It is also considered a great option for a non-surgical rhinoplasty.


Sculptra utilizes poly-L-lactic acid as its main ingredient. Like Radiesse, it is a semi-permanent option that helps stimulate more substantial collagen production for long lasting effects. Repeated treatments can help promote the natural build up of a collagen. Cosmetic surgeons frequently use Sculptra in the hips and buttocks as a non-surgical alternative to a Brazilian butt lift.
Patients may undergo multiple sessions of Sculptra injections initially to build up to the desired results. From there, touch ups may only occur once a year or less. Sculptra is not as commonly used for chin augmention, but it can benefit the area for some patients.

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Choosing whether to undergo chin surgery or chin filler injections is not always an easy or straightforward decision. Depending on the patient’s existing anatomy and desired result, one may be more practical. However, surgery requires more of a commitment to the results and a surgical recovery. Fillers are a good option for those who want to try chin augmentation without getting a permanent chin implant. 

The table below compares the two forms of chin augmentation to provide insight into which may work best for an individual.

Chin Filler

  • Temporary results
  • Numbing cream
  • Performed in 10-20 minutes

  • Can address smaller features such as unwanted dimples, a cleft chin, etc.
  • Less risk of complications
  • Fewer side effects
  • Subtler results
  • Easier to change the shape or projection
  • Malleable results that allow for more molding to the chin

  • Local or general anesthesia
  • Performed in about an hour
  • Uses a silicone chin implant
  • Addresses a recessive chin and bolsters the natural bone structure for increased projection
  • More risk of complications
  • More side effects
  • Can achieve more dramatic results
  • Further surgery required to change projection or size
  • May provide more consistent results

Wonder If Chin Filler Works The Best For You?


Chin filler can achieve many possible aesthetic results. This can include elogonating the face. Chin filler does help lengthen the jawline which can provide a slimmer looking face and enhanced facial profile. Based on the patient’s goals, their provider can help them determine the right amount of filler and injection areas. Normally, an injector will work off of the existing bone structure and anatomy to maintain a natural looking result.

The amount of time patients can enjoy their non-surgical chin augmentation Long Island results depends on the type of filler injected and biological factors. HA fillers tend to last around six months on average. Though, some HA fillers can last up to 12 months. Radiesse and Sculptra both have an average lifespan of about two years once the initial treatment is complete.

Patients can return to most of their normal lift immediately after treatment. However, patients may need to limit certain activities temporarily to prevent side effects and promote ideal settling of the filler. Aftercare following chin filler injections may include:

  • Avoid strenuous activities for one to two days
  • Do not lay flat for a few hours after the injections
  • Limit or avoid bending over
  • Skip certain skincare products or steps
  • Do not massage unless instructed to do so
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol for about two days to prevent bruising and swelling

The exact cost of chin filler treatment in New York City will depend on the number of syringes used. This can vary between patients, so patients will receive the most accurate cost estimate during a consultation. It starts at $689 and goes up from there based on filler type and amount.
