A weak chin is a receding chin that is set back from the rest of the face, leading to a less defined profile, as the balance of other facial features change in proportion to the chin.
There are variations in facial harmony and balance based on genetics, gender and ethnicity.
A smaller chin may be due to genes, a congenital defect, or the effects from trauma or injury to the jawbone. What is clear is that if you are self-conscious about your side profile, or hide your chin, there are treatments that can help. For both men and women, a defined chin and jawline are highly desired features.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are a variety of ways to alter the appearance of the chin, whether through surgery, implants, or dermal fillers.
At London City Skin Clinic, we achieve non-surgical chin augmentation with dermal fillers. HA fillers can be injected into the skin to enhance the volume of the area in need. The chin can be treated to become fuller in length or to enhance projection, balancing out the ratios to restore harmony to your profile. Overall, this leads to an improvement to the shape of the chin, definition and a more desirable facial contour.
Suitability for treatment can only be determined following an in-person consultation with photography to assess your profile.
At London City Skin Clinic treatments for a weak chin are performed by Dr Robby Bajaj.
Dr Robby Bajaj uses a unique and artistic technique to augment the chin with dermal fillers. Best results from this treatment should be seen about 4 weeks post treatment. The dermal filler products are pliable solutions which enhance natural features and recontour areas of concern.
There is no downtime associated with dermal fillers although some patients may experience some mild bruising and swelling after treatment.
The average effect of treatment with chin fillers lasts 12-24 months. It can be shorter or longer depending on your age, lifestyle factors and the amount of product injected.
