The V shaped face 

The youthful face is shaped in an upside-down V with the base of the triangle at the eyebrows and the point of triangle at the chin.  With age, time and gravity, the cheeks flatten and hollow out, and midface tissues fall downward and accumulate as jowls at the chin and jawline, which flips the V-shaped face of youth. The point of the triangle is now between the eyebrows and the base of the triangle is at the chin and jawline which emphasizes the jowls.  

Volume restoration in the cheeks with dermal fillers results in a healthy and youthful appearance and recreates the facial V-shape of youth. You can rebalance facial contours and proportions with dermal fillers. 

Injectable fillers 

Injectable fillers are the cornerstone of facial sculpting and allow for three-dimensional augmentation of the chin and cheeks. Dermal fillers such as Voluma, Restylane Lift and Radiesse offer the opportunity to temporarily correct mild to moderate chin recession or a weak chin. Nonsurgical rejuvenation with dermal fillers can reshape the chin and jawline, lift soft tissues and improve facial proportions effectively. 

Juvederm® Voluma  

Juvederm Voluma is a vycross hyaluronic acid filler that has been designed specifically for augmentation in the mid face and jawline. Nonsurgical augmentation with Volume lasts about a year. 

Radiesse® 

Radiesse is a Calcium Hydroxyapatite filler that has been safely and successfully used for facial augmentation for more than 30 years. It works in two ways: It provides immediate and temporary volumization and stimulates the formation of new collagen for long-lasting results. As the new collagen forms, the calcium is absorbed and eliminated from the body. Effects last up to a year, but the new collagen helps to retain the improvements much longer.  

Restylane® Lyft with Lidocaine 

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid filler injected into the facial tissues to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkling and folds and augments the cheeks to correct midface contour deficiencies. Treatment provides natural looking volume to the cheeks. Results can last for up to 12 months in the cheeks. 

Cheek augmentation  

As we age the midface loses volume and structural support due to a decline in the production of collagen.  Additionally, soft tissues atrophy, and bony resorption flattens the face giving the impression of tiredness. Moreover, facial fat pads at the cheeks sink hollowing out the undereye area and the fat drifts toward the jawline and chin causing jowls. 

Facial rejuvenation begins with the midface. Cheek augmentation with fillers can lift the cheekbones, restore volume, lift the jowls, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Cheek augmentation can restore a youthful appearance and femininity by increasing cheek volume and contours for a more youthful appearance. 

Chin augmentation 

The chin and jawline are important components critical to the perception of facial attractiveness that conveys beauty and youth. A well-contoured chin and jawline are desirable in men and women; and is also a defining feature of masculinity and femininity.   

A weak or recessive chin may be a natural feature or the result of aging. The goal of chin augmentation is to improve or restore the contours and proportions of the face to enhance beauty.  

Men who seek to enhance a masculine feature will desire a well-defined chin. Women, especially those with an oval or heart shaped face, may desire to strengthen the chin and jawline to improve facial contours. 

A weak chin can make the nose look larger.   Nonsurgical chin augmentation can improve the appearance of the nose and jawline, improve the look of sagging jowls, a thick neck, unbalanced profile and an asymmetrical chin. 

Nonsurgical chin augmentation is a good option for patients when their chin is not in proportion with or out of balance with the rest of the face or is asymmetrical and lacks definition. Chin augmentation can:
