Chin augmentation is an essential facial rejuvenation component, which can be done safely and effectively with fillers if clinicians know important aspects of regional anatomy and understand optimal patient selection, according to a recent review and practice experience published in Dermatologic Surgery.

While the nonsurgical approach to chin augmentation with dermal fillers has been covered in the plastic surgery and otolaryngology literature, little has been published in peer reviewed journals for dermatologic surgeons and other cosmetic physicians. To help address that, U.S. dermatologic surgeons conducted a review and shared their experiences focusing on anatomy, patient evaluation, injection technique, concomitant therapies and potential complications for the use of dermal fillers to temporarily correct chin retrusion.
