Weak Chin? See Immediate Results – Without Surgery!

Feeling self-conscious about your weak chin? If you want a more chiselled jawline or defined profile, then you may have considered chin surgery (mentoplasty). But what if there was a solution that avoided having to go under the knife AND offered an immediate result?

What Is A Weak Chin?

A weak chin, also known as a receding chin, is a condition where your chin is less defined. It can look misaligned with your upper jaw or like it ’slopes’ backwards into your neck.

A weak jawline can leave you feeling self-conscious or shy, making social interactions awkward and anxious. Since the chin takes up around a third of the facial area, its role in forming your overall appearance is pretty key.

While a weak chin is certainly not something that anyone, male or female, should feel embarrassed by, some issues can come from the condition that makes daily life uncomfortable and even causes health problems.

Why Do I Have A Weak Chin?

A weak chin is the result of either a genetic trait, where the mandible (lower jaw) is visibly recessed. The under-development of the jaw bone happens in utero – while you’re still developing in the womb – and is quite often seen throughout a family line.

A receding chin can also be the result of early facial trauma, where a viral infection, injury or surgery changes the formation of the growing bones.

Common Complications

For some people, a weak chin is more than just an aesthetic issue. Some common complications that can come from having a receding jaw include;

Eating & Expression

A misaligned jaw can also affect the placement of your teeth, making eating, and even some facial expressions, uncomfortable.

Sleep Disorders

A small, receding chin can also be the cause of sleep problems, such as obstructive sleep apnoea or excessive snoring. The position of the jaw means that the tongue can rest around the airway, leading to a pause in breathing (apnoea) or the vibration of the throat and nasal tissue that results in a loud rattling or guttural rumbling sound.

Poor Self Confidence

Feeling self-conscious or worried about your weak chin can affect many aspects of your life; from choosing hairstyles to meeting new people.

Perhaps it’s the fact that many films and TV shows often portray the hero with a strong jaw or the heroine with a well-proportioned face (think every Disney leading character!). In fact, ‘chiselled jaw’ is a buzz phrase frequently used in romance novels, which adds to the belief that a prominent, square chin is a desirable feature on a man and a soft, gently curved chin is the standard of beauty for a woman. This ideal version of how someone should look can leave those that don’t match up suffering from low self-esteem.

Home Remedies For A Weak Chin

Treatment of a weak chin can vary, depending on the severity of the condition. While home remedies can’t treat the issue, for some they can offer some respite from the feeling of self-consciousness.

Growing A Beard

Men have a natural defence against being bare-faced: the beard. Many have found comfort in growing out a longer beard style to hide a weak chin. However, some beards can emphasise the shape of your face, resulting in the opposite of the desired effect!


For others, there are clever makeup techniques and tricks that can minimise the look of a weak chin. Clever contouring and highlighting will give the effect of a stronger jawline with the sweep of a brush.


Some try facial exercise and massage to help build muscle in the jaw. However, this can’t alter the position of the mandible, so in reality, jaw exercises won’t help you to change your chin’s shape or your profile a great deal.

Saggy Chin Treatment

Effective Treatment For A Weak Chin

Home remedies can’t actually change the shape or size of your chin, but instead, seek to disguise or hide it from view. 

But there is a better solution. 

Here at Elite Aesthetics, we have two highly-effective treatments that will transform your face shape – and your confidence. They’re non-surgical, safe and long-lasting too! 

Dermal Fillers Bromley

Dermal Fillers For Weak Chin

Dermal fillers are a painless and non-invasive treatment that will alter the shape of your jawline, with immediate effect.

As one of our most popular treatments, dermal fillers have a long track record of effectively diminishing wrinkles, enhancing lips and refining facial structure, making them the ideal option to treat a weak chin.

Our dermal fillers are made from injectable hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, where its job is to manage your skin’s hydration levels, maintaining plump smoothness. 

As an injectable solution, it is a clear gel that adds volume to the desired area. In the case of creating a more defined chin, the filler can help to; 

  • Give a small chin more definition
  • Add length to a recessed or short chin
  • Reduce a ‘chin crease’ (the horizontal crease that runs between the lower lip and chin)
  • Reduce or remove a chin dimple
  • Give an immediate result that lasts up to 24 months

Botox For Weak Chin

It’s likely that you will have heard of leading anti-wrinkle treatment, Botox. Botox is highly effective at eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, but the uses of this injectable go far beyond that. 

One small study done at the Keck School of Medicine in LA found that Botox can be used to help relax overactive facial muscles which can pull the jaw back, creating a recessed chin. 

More commonly, Botox is used to treat a hyperactive mentalis muscle (the muscle that is responsible for elevating the skin on your chin). If this muscle works too hard, it can result in an abnormal shape to the chin or the appearance of a weak chin. 

Botox is injected into the affected area and causes the muscle to relax, allowing the chin to sit more comfortably. Results last up to 4 months and it can be used alongside dermal fillers to achieve your ideal profile.
