A recessed chin is a common occurrence among both men and women of all ages, and it refers to when the chin is positioned further back toward the neck. Often referred to as a weak chin or a receding chin, a recessed chin can have a big impact on overall facial appearance. It can cause the upper lip or nose to look as though they protrude outwards more than usual, while also having an effect on the appearance of the jawline.

Most people who suffer from a recessed chin find that it has been caused by genetics and have it for their entire lives. For the majority of people, a recessed chin is a cosmetic concern that does not impact the functionality of speaking or eating. However, some individuals with a recessed chin could have issues with their speech.

Having a recessed chin can dramatically impact the overall appearance of an individual and affect the facial profile. This can result in people with a recessed chin becoming increasingly self-conscious about their appearance and reduce their self-esteem. If this is the case, there are treatment options that can help to reduce the appearance of a weak chin.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a cosmetic treatment that is growing in popularity as more and more people are beginning to see the benefits. A range of different filler types are available depending on what the procedure is treating, making it versatile enough to work on a recessed chin as well as other skin concerns. All these fillers are clear gels which are nearly identical to a substance which occurs naturally in the body, known as hyaluronic acid. The body’s own hyaluronic acid works with the dermal filler to plump and fills specific areas of the face.

For a recessed chin, dermal fillers can be administered around the chin, jaw and mouth area. They will create volume in areas where tissue is lacking and can be used to sculpt a more prominent chin shape. The results vary between patients and depend on the type of filler being used, so we always recommend speaking with a specialist before making a decision.
