Good news for those with a small chin (hypognathism)
Chin contour plays an important role in the overall aesthetic appeal of the face.
Those with a small chin, also known as recessed chin or hypognathism, often report a low self-esteem and lack of confidence due to their appearance.
Symptoms include a short, small chin which makes the face appear flat. If the lower jaw is excessively small, the lips may also protrude.
Treatment options can include chin implants and other surgical options.
However, Dr. Kenneth Beer, is currently testing a dermal filler that may help improve the look of the chin.
