Soft Tissue Augmentation (Temporary Injectable Fillers) of the Lower Face and Neck (Lips, Perioral, Nose, Neck)

Soft tissue augmentation with injectable fillers is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures performed in the USA (US; V/B) (Ahn CS, Davis SA, Dabade TS, Williford PM, Feldman SR. Dermatol Surg 39(9):1351–9, 2013; Tierney EP, Hanke CW. Dermatol Surg 35(9):1324–33, 2009). The goal of these treatments is to either restore age- or disease-related volume loss or enhance and contour existing features, and the lower face is frequently an area of concern. In the aging face, bony remodeling, weakened retaining ligaments, and descent of atrophic fat pads contribute to the development of wrinkles and folds around the mouth, at the jawline, and at the chin. The nasolabial folds deepen; the lips thin; and the oral commissures turn down, delving into marionette lines. Bony resorption also makes the jawline less defined with a receding chin (Richard MJ, Morris C, Deen BF, Gray L, Woodward JA. Ophthal Plast Reconstr Surg 25(5):382–6, 2009; Rohrich RJ, Pessa JE. Plast Reconstr Surg 119(7):2219–27, 2007; Rohrich RJ, Pessa JE, Ristow B. Plast Reconstr Surg 121(6):2107–12, 2008; Shaw RB Jr, Katzel EB, Koltz PF, et al. Plast Reconstr Surg 127(1):374–83, 2011; Mendelson BC, Jacobson SR. Clin Plast Surg 35(3):395–404; 2008). Soft tissue augmentation seeks to soften these changes, particularly as part of a multimodal management plan with neuromodulators, resurfacing devices, and topical therapies (Carruthers J, Carruthers A. Dermatol Surg 42(Suppl 2):S89–93, 2016). On the flip side, younger patients also seek lower face enhancement, usually to correct genetically determined deficits such as nasal contour irregularities, to alter their face shapes, or to augment their features such as lips. This chapter evaluates the most commonly used injectable fillers in the USA to better understand the evidence-based literature supporting their safety and efficacy at the lower face, including the nasolabial folds, lips and perioral region, jawline and chin, nose, and neck and décolletage.
