Causes, Symptoms and Treatments
Retrogenia is the medical term to describe a weak chin. The chin and jawline is inclined inwards towards the body. A weak chin can be the result of age and become more pronounced with age. This is because gradual and progressive bone resorption results in decreased mandibular height and reduced chin projection. The chin appears less pronounced as a result, creating an unbalanced facial profile.
Surgical and non surgical chin augmentation can be used to enhance the contours, shape and balance of the face by increasing the projection of the chin and strengthening the jawline. This can provide symmetry to the face and create a balanced rejuvenation of the face.
Non surgical chin augmentation uses Hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections as a safe non invasive alternative to surgical chin augmentation. The procedure involves injecting the dermal filler into precise areas of the chin to increase length, width and projection of the chin.
The treatment can take around 15-30 minutes and involves minimal pain and limited downtime.
