Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation in New York

Most people believe surgery is the only way to alter face shape, whether they are unhappy with their face’s round or boxy appearance, fillers can prove as an effective treatment option. The jawline creates a lot of facial structure and gives a harmonious and balanced appearance. The chin can be strengthened using the non-surgical chin augmentation approach such as filler injections.

Besides strengthening a weak chin, chin augmentations in NYC can restore balance by creating the illusion of a smaller nose. Although the chin can be augmented either surgically or non-surgically, surgery has become a thing of the past because of several drawbacks because of the possibility of a moving implant or a permanent one that the patient is not happy with.

Board-certified dermatologist and injectable therapy expert Dr. Rolhsar has years of experience performing non-surgical chin augmentations1. To learn more about his work, contact us and book a consultation today.

Fix Your Chin Without Surgery

Traditional chin augmentation involves the surgical implantation of a shaped silicone, solid chin implant under general anesthesia. The surgery generally involves up to two weeks of swelling and pain. The results can be good, but can also be limited by the shape of the prefabricated implant.

Dr. Rokhsar uses Radiesse injectable filler, rather than performing surgery for chin augmentation. A topical numbing cream is applied to prevent pain during the procedure. Small amounts of Radiesse are then injected into precise areas building up the chin and bringing your profile into balance.

ArteFill2 can also be used to smooth wrinkles and provide facial structure in hollow places such as sunken cheeks. ArteFill’s soft, supportive foundation creates a longer-lasting chin augmentation that can take 15 to 30 minutes with no downtime. With these safe and effective non-surgical options made available, chin augmentations can easily correct a weak chin to proportion it to a person’s natural bone structure.

Results of the non-surgical procedures are more precise because Dr. Rokhsar expands only the areas that are absolutely necessary for the optimal cosmetic result. Dr. Rokhsar is among the leading New York and Long Island Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation surgeons seen by large numbers of patients.

What are Radiesse and ArteFill?

Radiesse is made up of very small, smooth calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel that remains soft and malleable after injection. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a naturally occurring mineral that makes up 50 percent of the bones in the human body as well as the enamel covering the teeth.

Because Radiesse is a natural mineral found in the body, it will not cause any allergic reactions and is completely biodegradable.

For patients who are satisfied with their chin augmentation but would like more permanent results without surgery, ArteFill is a four to five-year treatment solution. ArteFill is another type of injectable dermal filler similar to Radiesse except for its unique precision-filtered microspheres and enhanced collagen is not absorbed by the body.

Chin Augmentation: Before and After

The procedure is typically performed in 15 minutes following the application of numbing cream for 30 minutes. You may experience two to three days of minor swelling and rarely bruising. The results typically last up to a year.

The clinical outcome is much more natural than chin implants as Dr. Rokhsar can follow the natural contours of the person’s own chin. The results can be subtle or dramatic depending on the patient’s wishes.

Benefits of Non-Surgical Chin Enhancement vs. Tradition Chin Augmentation

Some of the benefits of non-surgical chin enhancements include:


Surgery carries inherent risks including scarring, infection, and anesthesia complications. Traditional chin augmentation involves inserting a chin implant under general anesthesia. This implant can, rarely, move after surgery, having to be repositioned. If there is a significant infection after surgery, the implant must be removed.

Non-surgical chin enhancement avoids the basic risks of surgery. There is no solid implant, therefore no risk of movement or infection. Radiesse does not move after it is injected and actually becomes part of the skin. Infections are unheard of with the injection of Radiesse into this area of the face.


Recovery from traditional chin enhancement typically lasts seven to ten days and involves pain, bruising, and swelling. The majority of the swelling goes away after two to four weeks, but some swelling can last several months. If the incision was made inside of the mouth you will need to eat soft foods and use special procedures for brushing your teeth. Strong pain medication, ice packs, and special mouth rinses are required during recovery.

Non-surgical chin enhancement results in minor swelling and sometimes mild bruising and tenderness. These symptoms should last no more than two to three days.


Since traditional chin augmentation involves inserting an implant, the enlargement cannot be completely customized to the shape of your face. It is possible for the implant to shift after surgery, which would give an undesirable look and require another surgery.

The injectable filler used in non-surgical chin enhancement is injected in small amounts and precise locations so that there is total control over the shape and contours created by the procedure. Results last up to two years. Because the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time, which allows you to maintain a natural look.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation Reviews for Dr. Rokhsar

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation FAQ

How is non-surgical chin augmentation performed?

A non-surgical chin augmentation utilizes the power of fillers such as Radiesse, and Juvederm. Either injection is placed into precise areas of the chin using a small needle. The results give patients an improvement in profile and facial symmetry. The non-surgical chin augmentation is performed in two 15-minute treatments spread 3 to 4 weeks apart. Minor swelling and tenderness may last 2 to 3 days post-procedure.

How long does a chin augmentation last?

This minimally invasive non-surgical procedure is ideal for younger patients who may need further adjustments are their facial structure changes or for those that are ambivalent about long-lasting cosmetic treatments. Juvederm tends to last about 9 to 12 months, while Radiesse can last up to 2 years.

How long does chin filler swelling last?

Swelling after chin filler injections can be expected, and it usually lasts for a few days. In some cases, mild swelling can subside in a few hours. However, if the swelling is severe or lasts longer than a few days, it may be a sign of an allergic reaction to the filler. The duration of the swelling can vary depending on the individual’s body chemistry, the type of filler used, and the depth of placement. Chin fillers typically last for 6-12 months, and follow-up treatments may be required to maintain the desired look. It is advisable to consult with Dr. Rokhsar for more information on the specific type of filler used and any potential side effects.

What not to do after chin filler?

After getting chin fillers, it is important to take proper precautions in order to ensure the best possible results. Here are some things to avoid after receiving chin fillers:

  • Avoid applying any heat to the area, such as saunas and hot showers, as well as hot waxing, in order to prevent bruising.
  • Avoid blood thinning products such as garlic, ginger, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, kava, and fish oil, Aspirin, advil, motrin, and naproxen in your diet for at least a week before and after the procedure to reduce the risk of bruising.
  • Avoid strenuous activity for the first 24-48 hours after getting chin fillers and try not to apply too much pressure to your chin during this time in order to avoid any displacement of the filler.
  • Do not wear a tight in the days immediately following your filler injections if you have received fillers in the upper half of your face or your chin. The pressure of certain types of eyewear or masks could potentially cause your filler to migrate beneath the skin.
  • Do not get a massage for at least two weeks after getting fillers. Lying on your stomach, with your face pressing into the donut on a massage table can greatly increase swelling, especially if you have had filler in your tear troughs or cheeks.
  • Avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen for 24-48 hours after the treatment and one week prior to treatment as it may cause swelling and bruising.

Remember to take it easy and allow your filler to settle, avoiding vigorous workouts for the first day after the procedure. Additionally, you can take arnica, a homeopathic supplement that minimizes bruising and speeds up the healing process and apply ice or a gel ice pack for a few minutes at a time to keep swelling down. Use a gentle cleanser while your face is healing, and if you have any questions or concerns about facial fillers, consult with Dr Rokhsar.

What to expect after chin filler?

After a chin filler treatment, it is common to experience some minor swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the injection sites. These are normal side effects that usually go away within a matter of hours or days. You may also feel a slight redness, itching, or numbness near the injection site, which can also be expected. Experts recommend avoiding scratching, massaging, or touching the injection site and avoiding strenuous exercise and heavy physical activity for 24-48 hours after the procedure. The chin may feel sore and heavy for a few days, and hard chewing should be avoided during this time. Most conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and massage and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days. If you experience a hypersensitivity reaction that can seem like an allergic reaction with hives and swelling, seek medical attention immediately. However, these side effects happen often and will usually self-resolve in the days after your treatment.

It is also worth noting that the procedure itself is relatively quick, and chin filler injections are similar to other dermal filler procedures. The amount of filler injected is specific and strategically placed into the chin. There is no downtime required, and the treatment is performed by Dr. Rokhsar in the office in a matter of minutes.

Lastly, the cost of chin filler treatments varies depending on the type of filler used, with some popular options being Restylane Lyft, Juvederm, volume and Radiesse.

How much does a chin augmentation cost?

The cost of chin augmentation can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of procedure, location, surgeon’s experience, and related expenses.

It’s important to note that there are different types of chin augmentation procedures, such as chin implants and chin fillers. Chin fillers, which are nonsurgical and involve injecting fillers to enhance the appearance of the chin, can also vary in cost depending on the type of filler used and the amount needed.

Overall, the cost of a chin augmentation can vary significantly depending on various factors, and it’s important to consult with Dr. Rokhsar for an accurate cost estimate.
