Within the world of popular culture, it is widely accepted that a well-defined jawline and chin are attributes of an attractive face. While this may be a coveted feature for both men and women, their end goals may be different. Men usually prefers a strong angular wide jaw accentuated by a pronounced chin while most women desire to have a defined sharp chin that gives them a V-shaped look without compromising the overall soft look of the face.
An adequate chin is defined as one that extends outwards to the same degree as one’s upper lip, when looking at their profile. A weak or recessive chin may appear smaller or shorter and cause the upper lip to seem like it is protruding out unnaturally. Recessive chins are usually a genetic trait or a congenital defect but can also be caused by injury or direct trauma to the lower jaw.
There are several options to address this condition and it ranges from genioplasty (surgery to cut and reshape your lower jaw bone), chin implants to dermal fillers. At NU.U Clinic, Dr. Chew specializes in the use of fillers like Restylane Lyft to create a natural looking chin that will complement your facial features beautifully and keep it looking that way for up to 12 months.
