Throughout history, a strong, balanced profile has been prized in both genders. However, many men and women have poorly-defined chins that do not project properly. Chin augmentation improves the symmetry of facial features, restoring a harmonious look. Dr. Ariel Ostad brings skill, experience, and artistry to every non-surgical chin augmentation procedure at his NYC practice.

Importance of proportion

Non-surgical chin augmentation downplays those characteristics for a more youthful, refined look. This procedure can be a good choice for a man or woman with a:

  • Chin that is noticeably square or pointed
  • Prominent nose
  • Recessed chin
  • Thick neck

You no longer have to go under the knife

At one time, your only choice was a chin implant procedure, placing a silicone implant below the lower arch of teeth. Dr. Ostad offers a chin implant option that does not involve cutting, sutures, or the recovery time of a surgical procedure. Instead, he utilizes FDA-approved injectable dermal fillers to supplement size, and reshape the chin beautifully. Benefits of non-surgical chin augmentation:

  • A more comfortable procedure. Fillers are infused with lidocaine, and topical numbing is an option
  • Quick—you can have a new chin in 15 minutes
  • None of the risks of surgery – infection, scarring, or shifting of the implant (requiring a follow-up surgery) 
  • Little or no downtime. You may return to work or other activities right away
  • Instant results. You see your newly-structured profile – with increased volume and projection – immediately
  • Low risk of side effects. While there can be some redness, swelling, or bruising at injection sites, it is mild and resolves naturally within a few days
  • Cost-effective, at about one-third the price of surgical chin augmentation
  • Not permanent. While patients are typically thrilled with results, Dr. Ostad uses hyaluronic (HA) fillers for an outcome that is reversible
  • Long-lasting. Non-surgical chin augmentation can last up to two years before retreatment is needed to maintain results
