Chin filler is a highly sought-after procedure at our Brisbane cosmetic clinic. It is important to remember that we are not only viewed front-on but from 360-degree view points. Patients may seek to add length, in order to look more elegant, while others prefer a more angular chin which (subconsciously) portrays strength and fertility.
Why Chin Filler?
Chin enhancement is part of our injectable profiloplasty treatments. A good chin gives your face a strong statement from facial profile perspective and upscale perceivable social traits.
There are several reasons why patients seek chin filler at Eleventh Heaven™:
- Want a younger or more ‘elegant’ aesthetic
- Displeased with their side profile
- Wish to balance their front profile
- Desire to portray strength and youth
- To look more beautiful/handsome
Here is an interesting medical journal article about the correlation of the chin position, perceived personality traits and perceived emotional facial expressions.
Our Approach & Design
Small or recessed chin (microgenia) can be improved non-surgically by the use of chin fillers. Depending upon the shape and size of your face pre-injectables, the size created with dermal filler will be variable and discussed with Dr. Ricky.
Men typically require more filler if they are seeking an angular, straighter chin to display strength. Women tend to have narrower and tapered lower face and so conventionally the shape will be a slightly pointy to project an air of elegance.
With ageing, there are bone resorption, atrophy of the soft tissue and hypertonic chin muscles which result in a rotated, receded and squarer chin. In female, this leads to a more aged and masculinised look with negative emotional attributes such as tiredness. By applying filler to the chin area, we can reshape the chin by project and/or lengthen the face, thereby rejuvenating and preserving a more feminine aesthetic.
Without realising it, subconsciously men are considered more attractive and desirable if they have a more angular chin as our brain has been programmed to subconsciously decipher that as showing power, dominance and ability to propagate. Dr. Ricky treats many male patients and also specialises in male treatments to enhance their aesthetic.
Beyond The Box
We think far ahead before we pick up our syringe and inject. Many factors come into our mind when we design your chin - your personal style/personality, what your chin look like in 3D view and during animation, what your chin may look like in long run. Gender and ethnic considerations are made during our facial design.
