Nonsurgical chin augmentation, also known as liquid chin augmentation, uses dermal fillers to change the shape and appearance of the chin without surgery. During the procedure, your injector will use a hyaluronic-based filler into the chin to add volume and create a more defined chin contour.
Is Nonsurgical Chin Augmentation right for you ?
Nonsurgical chin augmentation is an excellent alternative to surgery for many patients who wish to add width, projection, or definition to the chin. This treatment is best for patients with mild to moderate chin asymmetry or lack of projection. It is not recommended for those with severe chin deformities or a significant bone deficiency, which may require surgical correction. During your initial consultation, your injector will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your appearance goals to understand if this treatment is right for you.

Barrett injectors use hyaluronic acid-based fillers for this procedure. Juvederm Voluma is a thick but smooth filler specifically designed to add volume to areas like the midface and jawline, with natural results lasting for about a year. Radiesse combines dermal filler with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres, supporting the dermal structure while stimulating collagen production for six months to one year.
Results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used and the patient’s unique response. With maintenance, results can last indefinitely.
Numbing cream is applied before this treatment to ensure comfort. Most dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic to minimize pain further. Some swelling and bruising following this treatment are common.
