Chin Augmentation without Surgery
The chin is the lower most part of the face and plays and important role how well your selfies look. It is a primary component of the facial shape. If the chin is too recessed or too projected it can throw the entire face off balance. The weak chin is either caused because the lower jaw bone is less developed and it appears as if the chin is protected towards the neck or when the position of the lower jaw is back compared to upper jaw and it look like the chin is inclined toward the body.
Even when you are taking a selfie or being clicked the chin does the important job of helping the light reflect at right angles to make your jaw look contoured and neck elongated. Also, a weak chin draws attention to the nose and a protruding chin make the face look annoyed. Every facial structure is unique and weak chin or retrogenia is quite common.
Ageing can also cause a weak chin and it becomes more noticeable with age. This happens because as we grow older bone resorption decreases the jaw height and reduces chin projection. This is why as we age the balance between lower third and upper two thirds of the face shifts. On top of it the tissues start to become lax and gravity starts to show its effect leading to double chins. A weak chin does not cause problems in eating or talking but it is a big cosmetic concern for men and women.
