Alternatives To Chin Implants NYC New York NY

offers several alternatives to chin implants in NY, including osteotomy to reduce the length of the face, and dermal fillers for patients unsure whether a permanent solution is right for them. Osteotomy, also known as a sliding genioplasty, is a separate procedure from chin implants in NYC and does not involve placing an implant. During this procedure, part of your chin bone is cut and advanced forward to add chin projection to your profile. An osteotomy can also be used to correct a crooked chin or what patients may refer to as a “long face.” This procedure is able to reduce the vertical length of the face by actually removing sections of chin bone.  In some cases the procedure can also be used to lengthen the appearance of the chin.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are a temporary solution to correct a recessive chin and will produce aesthetic enhancement similar to the aesthetic enhancement produced by a chin implant. Patients often choose dermal fillers, such as JuvĂ©derm or fat injections, to “test drive” the results that could be achieved by a chin implant in NY. Dermal fillers provide immediate results but only last about six months. During that time, patients often decide if they’d prefer to make their results permanent by choosing to undergo chin implants in New York City.  Patients may also choose to allow the temporary results from the dermal fillers to fade, returning their facial profile to its original appearance.

Fat injections provide similar results as dermal fillers, except the material used in the injection itself is actually your own transferred fat cells. This transfer is achieved by harvesting fat cells from your abdomen, thighs, hips, or buttocks during an earlier procedure that is similar to liposuction. The harvested fat cells are then re-injected into targeted areas of your chin to achieve the best aesthetic results.

If you are interested in a more permanent solution than what dermal fillers and fat injections can provide but are hesitant to commit to chin implants without gaining a better visual of your future results,  can help you as you consider this important decision. To gain a better perspective on how chin implants in NY will enhance your appearance, can inject sterile water into your chin to add volume where the chin implant would be placed. Your body will simply reabsorb the water within a few days.
