When the jawline area appears less defined it is commonly known as a weak chin, receding chin or weak jaw.
This condition often sees the chin projecting backwards, into the neck and is more visible to others when the affected person is viewed from the side. A weak chin typically sees other features such as the nose, lips and forehead sitting disproportionately further forward than the chin.
This can produce an unbalanced appearance for the entire face, as well as giving the perception that the affected person has a double chin – as this concern also exposes more of the skin that lies around the neck.
A person has their own individual appearance and their features, including a weak chin, is determined by the genes they inherit. This unique biological make-up can influence the structure of the bones or give the person a distinct over-bite of the top jaw – common causes of a weak chin.
In some cases this concern can lead to psychological discomfort and other complications, including: misaligned teeth, sleep disruption and breathing difficulties. The appearance of a dominant or strong jawline is often more likely to be considered as a feature that is more attractive, with men finding this trait to be more masculine.
When looking to improve the appearance of a weak chin, jawline fillers are often the most effective treatment. By applying dermal fillers to this area of the face, volume can be enhanced and the chin can appear more defined in structure.
