How do doctors determine how much chin fillers to give a patient?Aesthetic Medicine
For chin fillers, how do doctors know how much to give to a patient, and when is it overdone?
Hi, this will depend on the natural anatomy of the patient.
A weak/receding chin may need more fillers compared to someone who already has a good chin profile and just needs slight enhancement.
As mentioned by Dr Wong, an experienced doctor with a good aesthetic eye will be able to tell roughly how much is needed. It is also important to discuss with your doctor your own expectations of how you would like your chin to look.
Overdone chins tend to look either very sharp, lengthy or overtly heavy. If HA fillers were used, this can easily be dissolved to look more natural.
Hope this helps!
Hi, usually we will start with 1cc of the filler (because they come in 1cc syringes ). And we inject cautiously until the desired chin shape is reached.
A sharp pointy chin in a female will need less filler than a man (who needs a more gentle squarish chin).
After years of experience, we can roughly estimate how much is needed more accurately by visual assessment.
Chin fillers really depend on the aesthetic eye of the doctor as well as with discussion with the patient.
Well done, chin fillers really can change the appearance of the patient.
