Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

Dr. Rivkin’s non-surgical chin augmentation technique will correct a weak chin or receding chin and balance the profile without the pain, risk, and recovery time involved with surgical chin implants.

Traditional chin augmentation involves the surgical implantation of a shaped silicone, solid chin implant under general or local anesthesia. The surgery involves up to two weeks of swelling and pain. The results can be good, but can also be limited by the shape of the prefabricated implant. In his Los Angeles clinic, Dr. Rivkin uses Radiesse injectable filler, rather than performing surgery for chin augmentation. A topical numbing cream is applied to prevent pain during the procedure. Small amounts of Radiesse are then injected into precise areas building up the chin and bringing your profile into balance. Results of this non-surgical procedure are more precise because Dr. Rivkin expands only the areas that are absolutely necessary for the optimal cosmetic result.

The procedure is normally performed in two 15-minute sessions, which take place about three weeks apart. You may experience two to three days of minor swelling and tenderness. Most people are back to work the next morning with a natural appearance. The results will last 9 to 14 months, depending on the patient. This allows for adjustment in the future as your face changes, so that you will always retain a natural look.

If you are happy with the look of Radiesse, but would like a more permanent effect, there is a permanent FDA approved filler that Dr. Rivkin uses for chin augmentation. Artefill is composed of tiny spheres of methyl methacrylate, a safe surgical plastic that surgeons have been using for decades, in a bovine collagen carrier. Because the collagen is animal based, an allergy test is necessary prior to treatment. Artefill non surgical chin enhancement is safe, effective and permanent. The procedure takes two to three sessions because the collagen part of Artefill dissolves within a few weeks.
