Often times chin or jawline filler is overlooked but is very important in order to create total facial balance. Loss of structure in these areas can cause worsening of marionette lines and jowls. Jawline and chin filler contains hyaluronic acid (HA) which is naturally found throughout the body’s natural tissues. When it is strategically placed in these areas, the proper facial structure is restored and helps to support the more superficial portions of the face.
What filler is used for chin and jawline?
Peak Plastic Surgery Center offers biodegradable FDA-approved filler for these areas. Product selection is highly important as it needs to provide proper support and longevity. Preferred fillers for this area are Restylane® Lyft and Juvéderm® Voluma.

"We had the pleasure of using Dr. Locketz for my mother's facelift, neck lift, and chin implant and we couldn't be happier with the results! My mom who is truly the most difficult client and is known for changing her mind on the smallest things is absolutely in love with the outcome! Dr. Locketz has been a pleasure from the start! He has been informative, patient, and attentive. His talent reflects in his works and we are so lucky to have found him! Dr. Locketz did a facelift, and chick implant and the results are out of this world. My mom's face and neck look 30 years younger. Her sink looks snatched and there are absolutely no visible scars at all! The procedure was an outpatient procedure and the recovery was easily manageable with minimal bruising & swelling. Dr. Locketz made sure to reach out to check on my mom numerous times over the phone and even came into the office during the weekend to accommodate our busy schedule! We couldn't be happier and ask for a better surgeon! NYC will miss your talent and we will be sure to visit your new office! We highly recommend Dr. Locketz!"- M.K. / Google / Oct 02, 2022

"I was referred to Dr. Barker by Kendall Peterson. Dr. Barker is professional, communicative, pleasant to work with, and compassionate. He called me the night before the surgery to check in and see if I had any last minute questions/concerns which meant a lot to me. He also called me a few days after the surgery to check in and see how I was healing. He took the time to address all my concerns and answer all 100 questions that I had :) Dr. Barker made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. My surgery could not have gone better and I am so pleased with the results. The entire team at Dr. Barker's office is exceptional. Kelsey, Sarah Hodge, and the rest of the staff are helpful, accommodating, and sweet. I would recommend Dr. Barker and his team to anyone! As mentioned, Kendall Peterson was the first individual at Peak Plastic Surgery Center who I spoke with. I met her at the 2021 Wedding Expo. Kendall goes above and beyond for her clients. I have been going to Kendall for Botox for about a year now. She is talented, genuine, and really great at what she does! Please go see Kendall if you are thinking about getting Botox done - you will not regret it!"- G.M. / Google / Sep 20, 2022
What does maintenance look like?
Typically, the first appointment requires several syringes to see optimal results and definition. Maintenance can look like 1-2 syringes every 6-12 months in order to preserve results and prevent the patient from returning back to baseline. The product used in this area typically lasts between 12-18 months. Our office prides itself on creating natural looking results and creating customized treatment plans for each individual patient.
What can I expect during my appointment?
A thorough consultation will be performed by our Physician Assistant and determine if you are a good candidate for filler in the jawline or chin. Numbing cream can be applied but typically injections in this area are not overly painful and the product itself contains lidocaine. The treatment will take approximately 30-45 minutes and results can be seen immediately. Due to the large surface area of the jawline, several syringes may be recommended to achieve optimal results. Typically, 1-2 syringes will provide natural augmentation to the chin. The areas may swell over the next several days and full results and symmetry can be assessed at 2 weeks. It is recommended to avoid alcohol, salty foods, makeup, and exercise for at least 24 hours following the procedure.
