What is Chin Augmentation?

Dr. Peter Prendergast offers improved proportions to a weak chin using fat grafting, fillers, or a combination of the two. The result is that a genetically weak chin, which causes an imbalance to the face and even a double chin effect, is transformed with an attractive contour. This a process which requires specialist precision and education. As there are two possible treatment routes to re-balance a weak chin, he will explain both thoroughly, and determine if one or both can improve your features.


How do hyaluronic acid and fat transfer help a weak or double chin?

Dr. Peter Prendergast performs Chin Augmentation in order to provide patients a look that is natural, but more beautiful. Fillers used include hyaluronic acid injections such as Restylane, Perlane and Teosyal. These have garnered a reputation as an effective and non surgical option for those who have spent too long wondering how to get rid of a double chin.

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is the most natural, safe and long lasting way to enhance your a weak chin. Your own fat is suctioned out from an area of excessive fat on your body. This removal of excess fat alone is cause for satisfaction for the patient. Then, it is reinjected to the chin area. Fat grafting ensures minimal downtime, as it can be carried out using only local anaesthetic. Another unique benefit to fat grafting is that the reinjected fat takes on the shape of the surrounding tissue, yielding a beautiful and authentic look. This method uses what nature gave you, and moves it to another area . Your body cannot reject its own fat cells.

Earlier methods of chin enhancement relied on chin implants. With fat grafting, there is far less risk of infection as no foreign objects are positioned into the body. Fat is injected in any quantity and to as many areas as needed to achieve the desired, defined result.
