Chin and jaw augmentation with Perfectha

RESHAPING A WEAK CHIN USING FILLERS

Dermal fillers are some of the most versatile products in the tweakment market. While they started out pretty humbly, just filling in deep lines in the face, nowadays they can be used to completely reshape the face. You’ll often hear me talking about how important it is to only use dermal filler products that have been properly tested, and Perfectha is one such product.

On this Tweak of the Week, I’m talking to Dr Pradnya Apte about how a ‘weak’ chin – one that’s set back and looks as if it’s receding – can be brought forward and made to look ‘stronger’ through the use of fillers. At the same time, she will be adding definition to the jawline. Dr Pradnya originally trained as a dentist and before she moved into facial aesthetics and, while you might think it a bit odd for a dentist to be doing this sort of treatment, actually, their detailed training and knowledge of the facial anatomy and structures puts them at a huge advantage when they transfer their attention to medical aesthetic procedures

Our patient this week, Effie, had always wanted a stronger chin and jawline, but until today had always thought it would require massive surgery involving completely breaking and resetting the entire jaw. Join me to see what fillers can do for people like Effie who don’t want to undergo surgery.

ABOUT

Alice Hart-Davis is an award-winning beauty journalist and author. For nearly 20 years she has been reporting on the aesthetic cosmetic procedures colloquially known as tweakments, and has trialled countless procedures in order to review them.

Alice has won many awards for her work, though none for services as a cosmetic guinea pig. She attends aesthetics conferences around the world and spends a lot of time catching up with the doctors, surgeons, dentists, nurses and the companies behind the technology in this fast-expanding field, the better to understand the tweakments on offer.

Over the years Alice has seen — and experienced first-hand — plenty of bad treatments, and understands the many problems that beset the aesthetics industry, from the lack of regulation to the rising incidence of body dysmorphia among cosmetic patients and practitioners.

Despite this, she remains an advocate of good, understated cosmetic work — the sort which goes undetected and unremarked, because it doesn’t lead to weird-looking hamster cheeks or frozen foreheads. She is also still enthusiastic about the potential of tweakments for making people look that bit better, which in turn makes them feel better about themselves and better able to get on with the rest of their lives.

She lives in London, a short bicycle ride from Harley Street, with her husband and a lively Jack Russell terrier. Her three young adult children take a dim view of tweakments, but accept that these are something she does for work (and are too kind to use the word, ‘vanity’).
