Andres G. Resto, M.D., FACS
I have a heart-shaped face and have a nice, delicate chin but I would like to have a slightly fuller look to my chin to achieve a more oval shaped face -- without surgery. Would Restylane injections help me achieve this look and how long would the results last?
In my practice, I have used Restylane only for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, not for facial augmentation. It sounds like a chin implant combined with fat injections may serve you best. Results of a chin implant are, of course, permanent as long as the chin implant is in place; the longevity of fat injections depends on how quickly the body reabsorbs the fat -- I would predict 3 months to a year.
