Chin fillers in London
Elevate your facial profile with Centre for Surgery’s expert chin filler treatments – where natural, harmonious enhancements meet the pinnacle of aesthetic precision
Chin fillers, also known as non-surgical chin augmentation, is a non-invasive procedure designed to enhance and augment an under-projected or recessed chin using dermal fillers. The procedure can be easily done in the clinic without the potential risks and downtime that are associated with chin implant surgery. The use of dermal fillers can correct a wide variety of chin concerns.
Chin fillers can effectively contour the chin and create a stronger and more sculpted chin which is particularly noticeable in the profile view. Chin asymmetry can also be corrected, which may often be due to asymmetry affecting the facial skeleton.
Many individuals may have a dimpled chin with a prominent midline cleft, and fillers can be used to soften and smoothen any unwanted lines or chin dimples. Patients with a double chin can often benefit from chin filler injected along the chin to soften and reduce the appearance of the double chin in mild cases of excess fat in the chin area without chin & neck liposuction. The effects of ageing on the chin can be reduced with chin filler placement and improve the appearance of jowls. Chin fillers are excellent as a tester treatment for patients considering chin augmentation surgery with a chin implant but would first like to see how they may look through the injection of chin filler, a temporary treatment lasting 12-18 months.

How Do Chin Fillers Work?
Chin fillers are a cosmetic treatment aimed at enhancing the chin’s appearance. The process involves the careful injection of a dermal filler, commonly composed of hyaluronic acid, into targeted areas of the chin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body, known for its ability to add volume and hydration.
RELATED: Facial Fillers
The primary objective of chin fillers is to modify the volume in certain regions of the chin. By doing so, it brings about subtle yet significant alterations in the chin’s shape and size. These changes are instrumental in improving the overall facial profile, offering a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing look.
A key aspect of chin fillers is their versatility. They can be strategically injected to address specific concerns. For instance, if there is any asymmetry in the chin, fillers can be used to create a more symmetrical appearance. Similarly, depending on individual preferences and aesthetic targets, fillers can either enhance the prominence of the chin or reduce it, to achieve the desired facial harmony.
This procedure is popular due to its non-invasive nature and the ability to provide immediate results with minimal downtime. It’s important to consult with a qualified professional to understand the best approach for your unique facial structure and aesthetic goals.
Benefits of Chin Fillers
Enhancing Feminine Aesthetics with Chin Fillers for Women
Chin filler treatments offer distinct benefits tailored to women’s aesthetic preferences. A primary goal for many women is to accentuate the feminine aspects of their facial structure. The application of chin fillers can be particularly effective in crafting a ‘heart-shaped’ facial contour, which is widely regarded as an epitome of feminine beauty.
RELATED: Solutions for a Receding Chin
These fillers play a crucial role in softening and balancing facial features. For instance, if a woman has a more pronounced, square-shaped jaw, fillers can be adeptly used to harmonise these stronger features. The result is a more symmetrical face that aligns with traditional perceptions of femininity. By subtly altering the chin’s shape and volume, chin fillers can thus contribute significantly to achieving a softer, more traditionally feminine facial appearance.
Tailoring Chin Fillers for Masculine Enhancement in Men
For men, chin fillers have become increasingly popular for enhancing the masculine features of the face. One of the standout benefits of chin filler treatment for men is its ability to define and strengthen the jawline. Men often seek a more pronounced, ‘square’ jaw, which is associated with traditional masculine aesthetics.
RELATED: Male Chin Surgery
The use of chin fillers in men is strategically focused on augmenting the chin and jawline area. This enhancement not only provides better definition but also contributes to a more rugged and traditionally masculine look. A well-defined, contoured chin can significantly alter the face’s appearance, making it appear more angular and masculine.
Ideal Candidates for Chin Filler
Chin fillers using Juvederm are a non-surgical treatment without the incisions, scars, risks and downtime of chin implant surgery and are applicable to a much broader range of patients compared with patients considering chin implant surgery:
- Patients wishing to reduce chin dimples and other surface irregularities
- Patients seeking an improvement in chin contour and symmetry
- Patients who would like to enlarge their chin and reduce chin recession
- Reduction in mild jowl formation with the injection of dermal filler along the jawline adjacent to the jowl
- Patients want to consider how their chin could look with chin fillers before proceeding with chin implant surgery
Selecting the Ideal Chin Filler: A Guide to Making the Right Choice
When considering chin fillers, it’s crucial to choose a type that aligns with your specific needs and goals. At Centre for Surgery, we specialise in using dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). These fillers are highly favoured due to their optimal balance of offering long-lasting results, exceptional aesthetic outcomes, and the flexibility of being reversible.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers are renowned for their excellent aesthetic results. They enhance the chin area by adding volume and sculpting the desired shape, seamlessly blending with the natural contours of your face. The ability to achieve such natural-looking enhancements is a key reason why HA fillers are a preferred choice.
Another significant advantage of HA fillers is their high biocompatibility. Since hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the body, the risk of allergic reactions is extremely low. This makes HA fillers a safe option for most individuals, ensuring that the treatment is not only effective but also well-tolerated by the body.
At our clinic, we prioritise the use of only the highest quality dermal fillers. We choose products that have been approved by reputable regulatory bodies, such as the FDA and carry the CE mark, indicative of their compliance with health, safety, and environmental protection standards. Brands like Juvederm and Teoxane are among the top choices we offer. These brands are known for their superior quality and have a proven track record of delivering satisfactory results.
How To Prepare For Chin Filler Treatment
Chin filler enhancement techniques
The amount of chin fillers injected, and the location of placement is dependent on the type of chin correction sought by the patient to achieve results that are in line with expectations. The results and their longevity after chin filler placement are also determined by the type of chin filler used.
Filler for ageing chin and jowls
Chin filler is injected further back from the chin adjacent to the jowl in an area known as the pre-jowl sulcus. This helps to blend the area of the jowl with a reduction in the appearance of sagging skin to smoothen the jawline contour. The ideal filler to use would be Juvederm Volift, which is a softer filler compared with Voluma.
Dimpled or Cleft Chin
The appearance of chin dimples or a cleft chin whilst may be seen as a desirable feature in many individuals, is often a troublesome feature that affects people’s appearance. Irrespective of the cause of the chin dimpling, the appearance can be significantly improved with the injection of chin dermal filler.
Chin recession or chin under-projection can lead to an unbalanced facial proportion, particularly in profile view. A small receded chin results in the lower face looking weaker, and this can lead to an overly prominent upper face. Using a firmer dermal filler such as Juvederm Voluma can add volume and firmness to the chin and achieve results similar to what can be attained with chin implant surgery.
Double Chin or submental fullness
Most patients presenting with a double chin or submental fullness should have submental liposuction to remove excess fat and contour the chin, neck and jawline. In patients with only a mild degree of submental fullness, which is associated with a weak and recessed chin, the placement of chin filler can help blend and smooth the submental region and reduce the appearance of a double chin.
Differences between the Male and Female chin
Men generally have a more squared and fuller shape to their chin compared with women, who often have a more narrow and rounded shape to their chin, and these differences should be accounted for when placing chin fillers into patients of both genders for optimal correction.
Surgical Chin Augmentation
The use of chin fillers is effective, though the results are temporary and require repeat injections to maintain them over time. Results typically last between 12 months to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used. Follow-up injections of chin filler are determined by how much volume was used initially and how quickly the hyaluronic acid in the dermal filler is broken down by the body, which varies between people.
RELATED: Chin Surgery (Genioplasty)
Using a chin implant to augment the chin for increased volume and projection is a simple and straightforward surgical procedure with permanent results and is an alternative to regular treatment with chin filler injections. Using chin fillers can give patients a realistic idea of how they could look after a chin implant procedure. Using chin fillers is a reversible procedure. If a patient is not happy with the result, they can choose to have the filler dissolved with Hyalase (Hyaluronidase) or simply wait for the filler to be metabolised and removed by the body over time. With the insertion of a chin implant, a patient would need to have a second surgical procedure to remove the implant or replace it with an implant of different dimensions if they were not happy with the initial result after the first procedure.
How many syringes are needed for a filler chin augmentation?
One syringe of dermal filler is roughly the same as a fifth of a teaspoon in volume. The additional filler may occasionally be required once the initial swelling resolves after chin fillers if the further volume is preferred. Our treatment philosophy is to avoid injecting too much filler at one sitting and add volume incrementally over time with top-up treatments if further volume is required. When chin fillers are being performed for the first time, the volume, which is often apparent straightaway, tends to go down quicker than in follow-up treatments as your tissues start to generate collagen in the areas of chin filler injection. Of course, every person is different and has a unique chin structure that needs to be considered when planning treatment. The amount of filler required can vary from 1 syringe to 3-4 syringes, depending on the degree of correction required. Your doctor will accurately assess you at consultation to determine the correct treatment and the recommended number of syringes required for full correction.
Chin filler treatment
You would have had a consultation before your chin filler treatment to discuss what the treatment involves, your desired outcome and the risks and complications.
Arriving at the clinic, you will have numbing cream applied if required. Your doctor, nurse or surgeon may mark you up and use a cannula technique to help with the smooth contouring required to achieve a strong jawline and to help reduce the risk of bruising. Dermal filler is injected into the area, and our experts determine the correct amount. The overall treatment is usually very quick, 15-30 minutes and the majority of patients do not feel pain.
Dermal chin fillers treatment is effective at improving the definition of the chin so it will appear more in balance with the rest of the face, recede and overly prominent chin so it will be more in proportion with the face and fill in sunken areas in and around the chin as well as helping to lift the appearance of jowls that may have become more prominent with age and reduce any fine lines or wrinkles on the chin.
Chin fillers are an advanced dermal filler technique and should only be carried out by highly experienced medical practitioners.
After Your Chin Filler Treatment
Results can usually be seen immediately after treatment; however, swelling and bruising may be present, so it is best to wait for this to settle to see the final results. Results from chin filler can last between 9 – 12 months and you will need to return for additional treatment to maintain your results.
The pain after chin filler treatment is low, and you should not be in too much discomfort. There may be some redness and/or swelling, and it is advised that you do not partake in strenuous activity for 24 hours post-treatment, which includes exercise. You should also avoid applying make-up to the area for 24 hours.

How Do Chin Filler Augmentation and Chin Implants Differ?Chin filler augmentation and chin implants differ primarily in their permanence and invasiveness. Chin implants involve a surgical procedure and are permanent, with any changes requiring another surgery for removal. In contrast, chin filler augmentation is non-invasive and reversible, offering flexibility through the use of hyaluronidase for adjustments or removal.
Do Chin Fillers Address Marionette Lines?Indeed, chin fillers are effective in reducing the appearance of marionette lines, which are the lines extending from the corners of the mouth to the chin. By adding volume to these areas, chin fillers help smooth out these lines, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Can I Combine Chin Fillers with Other Dermal Filler Treatments?Yes, at Centre for Surgery, we offer combination treatment packages. These allow you to address multiple facial areas – such as the chin, jawline, lips, nose, or tear trough – in a single session, providing a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
What Potential Risks and Side Effects Should I Be Aware Of?Chin fillers, like any cosmetic procedure, carry some risks. Common side effects include bruising and swelling at the injection sites. Less frequent risks, such as the formation of nodules or vascular occlusion, are rare, especially when the treatment is conducted by the highly skilled professionals at Centre for Surgery.
How Soon Can I Resume Work After the Treatment?You can typically return to work immediately following your chin filler treatment. However, it's advisable to steer clear of intense social engagements for about two weeks post-treatment. This period allows your chin to properly heal and the filler to settle optimally.
Is the Chin Filler Procedure Uncomfortable?The process of receiving chin fillers is generally not associated with significant pain. While you might experience a slight pinching sensation as the filler is administered, it's typically quite bearable. To further enhance your comfort, a numbing cream can be applied to the area before the injections, effectively minimising any discomfort.
What If I'm Not Satisfied with the Results?One of the advantages of using hyaluronic acid fillers is their reversibility. If you find yourself dissatisfied with the outcome, the filler can be quickly modified or completely dissolved using hyaluronidase. This offers a safety net, ensuring you're content with your final look.
What To Expect
When you schedule a consultation for chin filler treatment at Centre for Surgery, it's a vital step towards achieving your desired aesthetic results. This consultation is a comprehensive process designed to ensure that the treatment aligns perfectly with your needs and expectations. Here’s what you can expect during this key stage:
Discussing Aesthetic Goals and Concerns
The consultation begins with an open discussion about your aesthetic aspirations and any specific concerns you might have regarding your chin and facial appearance. This is your opportunity to express what you hope to achieve with the chin fillers. Our specialists will listen attentively to understand your desired outcomes, whether it's enhancing chin definition, balancing facial proportions, or addressing asymmetry.
Comprehensive Medical History Review
An essential part of the consultation involves reviewing your medical history. This step is crucial to ensure that chin filler treatment is safe and suitable for you. You'll be asked about any past medical conditions, current medications, allergies, and previous cosmetic procedures you've had. It’s important to be open and honest during this discussion to avoid any complications during the treatment process.
Development of a Bespoke Treatment Plan
Based on the information gathered during the consultation, our specialist will craft a bespoke treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. This plan may include chin fillers or other types of dermal filler injections, depending on what best suits your facial structure and aesthetic goals. Our specialist will explain the recommended approach, including the type of filler to be used, the expected results, and any potential side effects.
This personalized treatment plan is designed to ensure that your aesthetic objectives are met with the utmost precision and care. Our goal is to provide a treatment that not only enhances your appearance but also boosts your confidence and satisfaction with your facial profile.
Ensuring a Comfortable and Informed Experience

Chin Filler Procedure
The process of receiving chin filler injections at Centre for Surgery is meticulously carried out to ensure precision, effectiveness, and your comfort. Here is a detailed overview of what you can expect during the actual injection procedure:
Step 1: Preparing the Skin
Prior to the injections, your practitioner will carefully mark the skin on your chin. These markings serve as precise guides to identify the exact locations for the filler injections. This step is crucial as it ensures that the filler is administered accurately to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
Step 2: The Injection Process
With the guidance of the markings, your practitioner will then proceed to inject the dermal filler. Small quantities of filler are injected at each marked point to ensure an even distribution throughout the target area. This approach is key to maintaining symmetry and achieving a natural-looking enhancement of the chin.
Step 3: Managing Sensation During the Procedure
As the needle penetrates the skin, you may experience a slight pinch. However, it's important to note that chin filler injections are generally not considered painful. The procedure is designed to be as comfortable as possible. Our practitioners are skilled in performing these injections with minimal discomfort.
Step 4: Ensuring Comfort with Topical Anaesthetic
To further enhance your comfort during the procedure, a topical anaesthetic can be applied before the injections. This anaesthetic numbs the skin, significantly reducing any sensation of pain or discomfort. The use of a topical anaesthetic is especially beneficial for individuals who may be more sensitive to needle injections.
Step 5: Completing the Procedure
Once the filler has been successfully injected, the practitioner will ensure that the results align with the planned outcome. The procedure is relatively quick, and you can expect to see immediate results.
Recovery And Aftercare Process
After receiving jaw filler injections at Centre for Surgery, you can expect a straightforward recovery with minimal downtime. However, it's important to follow certain after-care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and the best possible results. Here are the key guidelines to follow post-treatment:
1. Limit Physical Activity and Exposure to Heat
For the first 24 hours after your treatment, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, as well as exposure to saunas, steam rooms, or any excessive heat. This precaution helps in reducing the risk of swelling and ensures that the filler settles properly in the treated area.
2. Abstain from Alcohol and Certain Medications
To minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising, it's important to avoid alcohol consumption and the use of ibuprofen for 48 hours before the procedure. Adhering to this guideline will aid in a smoother healing process and reduce the likelihood of unwanted side effects.
3. Be Mindful of Sleeping Position and Pressure
In the two weeks following your treatment, try to avoid sleeping on your face or applying any extra pressure to the treated areas. This helps in maintaining the shape of the filler and ensures that it remains evenly distributed.
4. Avoid Touching the Treated Area
To keep the risk of infection to a minimum, avoid touching or applying makeup to the treated area for 24 hours after the injections. Keeping the area clean and untouched is crucial for preventing any potential complications.
By following these after-care instructions, you can ensure a comfortable recovery period and maximise the effectiveness of your jaw filler treatment. It's important to remember that while some mild swelling or bruising may occur, these side effects are typically temporary and will dissipate gradually.
