Weak Chin

Our specialists at Light Touch Clinic provide safe and effective treatment to relieve the signs of a weak chin, bringing definition to the chin area and restoring shape.

About Weak Chin

A weak chin can also be referred to as a receding chin, or retrogenia. This condition results in the chin appearing to project backwards towards the neck as opposed to a slightly, forward-sitting position.

A weak chin is often a genetically inherited feature, unless it has occurred by way of injury or trauma, it will usually be determined at birth. The structure of the jaw, known medically as the mandible, is made up of a combination of soft tissue and bone and is what determines the natural positioning of the jaw. How this structure then affects the appearance depends on the tissues that surround it.

In most people, the upper jaw sits slightly forward of the lower jaw to allow the top teeth to fit perfectly over the bottom ones. A weak chin is often harmless, though it can lead to some issues with self-consciousness. In cases where a man or woman develops a weak chin through ageing, a natural change in bone structure and tissue mass may be the cause of the recession.

At Light Touch Clinic, we offer specialist treatments to bring definition to a receded jawline and chin and reestablish its shape. Book your consultation with one of our experts to discuss the best options for you.
