Small Chin & Chin Dimpling cityskinclinic

WHAT IS A SMALL CHIN OR CHIN DIMPLING?

The shape of your chin depends on several factors including genetics, development and the rest of your facial features. A small chin is generally described as one that appears diminutive compared to the rest of the face and in many cases is also receded. Chin dimpling, on the other hand, is the appearance of a lump of tissue that looks like a “button” or dimple on the front of the chin. This is usually always visible but accentuated by moving the chin. People usually seek treatment for chin dimpling and small chins for cosmetic reasons although a small chin maybe associated with dental problems.

WHAT CAUSES A SMALL CHIN OR CHIN DIMPLING?

A small chin maybe caused by the reduced size of the chin bones, a small amount of fat under the skin of the chin or small chin muscles. A dimpled chin is usually caused by overactivity of the chin muscles. The most common reason for having a small chin or chin dimpling is genetics. That is, you’ve inherited this from your family. Other factors which can exacerbate the appearance of a small or dimpled chin include loss of skin thickness and elasticity due to ageing and loss of facial volume.

WHAT IS CHIN ENHANCEMENT, AUGMENTATION & RESHAPING?

Chin enhancement is any procedure used to alter the shape of the chin in order to enlarge, reduce or in anyway enhance its appearance. There are many methods for chin enhancement ranging from non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers to permanent chin implants or bone surgery.

There aren't any exercises that will significantly alter the profile and shape of your chin. There are however, some exercises which can help build up the muscles holding your chin in place which might slightly strengthen the appearance of your chin. These exercises often involve tilting your head upwards and jutting your lower jaw out then returning to the neutral position and so forth.
This depends on what you wish to achieve, your overall face shape, medical history and budget. At City Skin Clinic, we find dermal fillers highly effective for reshaping, lengthening and strengthening the appearance of the chin and jaw. Chin fillers are also non-invasive, can be dissolved, last 6-12 months and have an excellent safety record. There are circumstances when dental or surgical correction might offer a better result.
