Chin Augmentation Treatment Fort MyersDr. Yasaira Rodriguez is a comprehensive ophthalmologist who has expanded her expertise to cosmetic procedures. She uses dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane to add definition to the chin and lower jawline. A variety of dermal fillers are available to treat a number of chin issues, but Dr. Rodriguez uses these two most frequently. She uses the filler material to strengthen and balance the chin profile.

Chin fillers are safe with a low risk of side effects. Most patients are candidates and most have only slight swelling and bruising after the procedure. The fillers last from six months to two years, depending on the type and quantity used. Eventually, the filler is absorbed by the body so the procedure must be occasionally repeated. We can do it right in our office at Fort Myers, so repeat treatments are very easy.

Am I a candidate?

People age 21 to 80 are good candidates for this treatment. Dr. Rodriguez’s team will take a full medical history, but candidates should be in good general health with no allergies. Non-smokers are the ideal candidate.

Your expectations are also important. While chin fillers can correct a weak chin, these fillers cannot correct deep wrinkles or sagging skin. The team will talk to you about your desires for the treatment.

What should I expect?

We perform the procedure on an outpatient basis. It takes about an hour. We will prepare the skin at the injection area by disinfecting it then applying a topical cream like lidocaine to numb the area.

You can sit up during the procedure, but must remain still while you receive multiple injections. We will monitor you for a bit then you can go home. We ask that you minimize sun exposure and vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours. The injection site might be a bit sore for a few days, but cold compresses usually do the trick. You may also wish to take Tylenol to minimize any discomfort you may be experiencing. Keep the injection site clean as well.

We will schedule a follow-up visit to see how you are doing or to do a touch up if you feel you haven’t achieved your desired result.
