Q&A: Should I Get Botox, Cosmetic Surgery, or a Facial Filler First?

At Beauty Boost, one of our most frequently asked questions is whether it’s best to get a chin implant, chin or jawline filler, or Botox. Should you go straight for the implant, or try out filler in your chin first? Should you get a jawline filler as well?

With all the options available, it’s hard to know which one is right for you! Our expert DNP, Anisa, breaks down these treatments and who should get them in the video below.


Try Facial Fillers Before You Get Implants

If you haven’t had any work done on your chin or around your jawline, Anisa always recommends trying a filler first. That way you can foresee what it looks like before changing your appearance more permanently.

Fillers typically last one to two years. They can be done in the chin and/or jawline, so you can achieve an appearance that you might not be able to get with a chin implant alone. If you’re just looking to add a little more to certain parts of your chin and jaw, fillers are a great option.

Another great advantage of injectables is that they are nonsurgical. This can make fillers a natural choice for those who are concerned about invasive procedures, but want to improve their appearance.

Anyone who feels that their chin lacks definition, has an asymmetrical jawline, or experiences sagging jowls is a perfect candidate for chin and jawline injections!

Get Implants for Permanence

If you absolutely love how you look with a chin filler and don’t want to keep getting re-injected year after year, then Anisa recommends making the decision to get a chin implant. Implants can last for a lifetime and are safe if done by an experienced cosmetic surgeon.

Keep in mind that you can’t get an implant for your jawline, only your chin. If you want to add volume or strength to your jaw, consider supplementing your chin implant with a jawline injection every year.

Try Botox in Your Chin and Jawline

Botox can be another great option for people who want to change the appearance of their chin. Like fillers, Botox is non-invasive, non-surgical, and a temporary facial injection that will fade with time.

Anisa suggests using Botox to help with chinulite or dimpling in the chin. She also recommends using it in the jawline to slim the masseters, which are the muscles on the side of the face connecting the lower jawline to the cheek. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of a square chin, botox can help there, too!
