Surgical Chin Augmentation or KYBELLA®, Where to Start?

Featured Image

Men and women with a weak or recessed chin may desire to enhance their facial features with surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. Chin augmentation with a chin implant can easily balance your facial features or profile, while some patients look to nonsurgical options, like KYBELLA. KYBELLA is an FDA-approved injection that can dissolve stubborn submental fat cells underneath the chin to create more definition. With the ideal candidate, body contouring procedures can give you a well-proportioned appearance in all the right areas when performed by the professional board-certified plastic surgeons at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Read on to learn more about chin augmentation in Jacksonville, FL and how to tackle this cosmetic problem.

Are you considering chin augmentation in Jacksonville, FL?

If you are bothered by a recessed chin or dislike how your profile looks, chin augmentation with an implant can help you feel more confident with your appearance. A chin implant is a medical device made from bio-compatible materials or solid silicon inserted into the chin through a discreet incision underneath the jawline area. Chin augmentation without an implant is another type of genioplasty, or surgical procedure for the chin, that uses a patient's own bone structure to add more definition to the jawline area. Chin augmentation can:

  • Improve facial harmony
  • Add more definition of the jawline and neck
  • Correct a recessed or weak chin
  • Help reduce the appearance of a "double chin" due to a small chin bone

What is KYBELLA?

Are you trying to figure out how to get rid of fat under your chin? The "double chin" effect is caused by weight gain and genetics, but it is also one of the first signs of aging. Over time, excess fat builds up in the submental space (the area underneath the chin) as muscles in the lower jowls and neck begin to deteriorate. KYBELLA is one of the first FDA-approved cosmetic injectables that reduce submental fullness and destroys fat cells. KYBELLA is an effective double chin fat removal treatment that doesn't require surgery to transform your profile, so chin up!

Should I choose KYBELLA or chin augmentation with an implant?

Both chin augmentation with or without an implant and KYBELLA are excellent options to recontour your profile. You may require chin augmentation with an implant for a more pronounced definition due to your recessed chin's nature and severity. However, if your condition is solely excess fat, KYBELLA may be your answer. Once we treat the submental fat cells with KYBELLA sessions, they will no longer grow back if you maintain your ideal body weight. The first step to reshaping and enhancing your facial profile is to consult with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. During a thorough consultation, you will share your concerns, and our expert plastic surgeons will personalize a treatment plan to meet your needs.
