Weak chin treatment options
What causes a weak chin?
Truth is that improving the chin can have an equal or greater impact in achieving a more attractive profile compared to the nose.
According to cosmetic enthusiasts, a symmetric and strong chin, particularly in men, is associated with strength and leadership.
A weak chin, also called a receding chin or retrogenia, is when the tip of the chin is not projected forward enough in relation to other parts of the face such as the forehead, nose, and lips.
A chin that is behind the forward-most point of your lower lip is considered a weak chin. This is best seen when looking at a person from the side (profile view).
One of the most visible consequences of this condition is the appearance of a larger nose. Correcting this balances the face of both men and women by improving the jawline definition and decreasing the appearance of jowls.
A tool to determine this is using the Rickett’s Esthetic Line. This is a straight line that goes from the tip of your nose to the tip of your chin.
You can try it by placing the tip of a pencil or your index finger on the tip of your nose. Then, touching the tip of your chin. Your lips should be about two to four millimeters from this line. If not, it is considered a receding chin on the Rickett’s Esthetic Line parameters.
