Summary of "Optimizing the Chin and Jawline Appearance: Does Surgery or Injection Make Sense?"

The chin is a crucial landmark and mandates careful consideration for facial appearance. Optimal chin appearance requires evaluation and treatment in three dimensions: anteroposterior, transverse, and vertical planes. The optimization of chin deficiencies requires understanding of bony anatomy as well as the relationship of the adjacent facial structures including the lip, teeth, and nose. The practitioner should be familiar with techniques in injection, placement of alloplastic implants, as well bony genioplasty.

Adverse reactions that occur initially at the site of injection or infusion. Milder type is confined to a local allergic flare reaction. A more severe reaction is caused by extravasation of VESICANTS from the blood vessel at the site of injection and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. In tumor flare reaction symptoms involve well beyond the injection site such as an increase in the tumor size and tumor markers levels, bone pain, and HYPERCALCEMIA.
