Fixing my chin fillers



A couple of months back, I talked about how my chin fillers were badly shaped. I'll be lying if I say that it didn't annoy me, but I've tried to suppress negative remarks made about them. I even had to constantly remind myself that since its just fillers, they’d go away eventually. Well, it is true that with time, fillers -only Hyaluronic Acid type- will dissolve into the body and you'll get your natural features back. However, if you want the change to be immediate, you can do what I did :)


This was how my chin looked like before the procedure. It was so crooked and didn’t align with my jawline at all.

The photo above shows how my chin looked like before the procedure I'm about to explain. Basically, too much Hyaluronic Acid was injected to my chin by (probably) an untrained professional, hence the unexpected outcome.

I made a trip down to SL Clinic where I met Dr. Kelvin Chua for a consultation. After a thorough examination of my chin, he suggested dissolving the remaining filler with Hyaluronidase and then letting it rest for a week before filling it up again with the proper amount and techniques. Without any hesitation, given that Dr. Kelvin Chua has years of experience in this field, I agreed.

Prepping the injection site with numbing cream.

Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that exists in our bodies. When injected, it dissolves the filler (Hyaluronic Acid) immediately, though it will take 24 to 48 hours to see the full results. I'm not going to lie; it is actually pretty painful hahaha. I would give it about an 8 out of 10, but no worries, the sensation only lasts for a couple of seconds. And that is why it is very important to choose an experienced doctor with your aesthetic needs from the very beginning! That way you never have to worry about fixing anything if they're already done right.

The entire procedure really only took about 5-10 minutes, and the results were almost immediate. I could already see a difference within the next 5 minutes or so. But of course, it took about a day for everything to fully dissolve. Some patients may experience swelling around the injected area, however I did not.


Here is how my chin looks like a week after.

A week later, I found myself in Dr. Kelvin Chua's office for a review. He pointed out the reasons why my chin fillers looked too artificial before and fixed it by injecting only a minute amount of Hyaluronic Acid.


And here are the final results!

I love how natural looking it is now! No more dents in my jawline. Also, no more comments on my Instagram photos by random people about how my chin looks weird. LOL.
