The chin, due to its central position, like the nose and lips, must respect codified proportions (the golden numbers) both from the side and from the front.
Ideally, the tip of the chin should be vertically aligned with the base of the forehead, or even slightly forward from it.
Aesthetic medicine can be an alternative to surgery for all corrections except prognathism.
We can therefore inject filler products like hyaluronic acid to make the chin project more from the side or lengthen the chin from the front and alter its shape.
It is important to ask the advice of a medical profiloplasty expert, as medical genioplasty can only be undergone once the angles and projections of the nose and forehead have been analysed.
Furthermore, the chin can take on an unsightly appearance over time, independent of its position. This “orange-peel skin” is due to the involuntary contraction of the powerful chin muscle.
Treatment involves carrying out intramuscular injections every 4 to 6 months with the aim of relaxing the muscles, which allows us to smooth the irregular appearance of the chin in just a few days.
