Many individuals suffer from chins that are somehow misshapen. Many other patients complain of a "jowled" look or indentions on either side of the chin known as the prejowl sulcus. Over time, the chins of some individuals lose their definition as skeletal recession & facial atrophy takes its toll. A under-formed chin can play a critical role in diminishing a person's overall appearance & stature. If a receding chin is accompanied by jowls, then lifting the jowls will give the lower face better balance. Rebuilding the prominence of the chin helps to achieve more protrusion & results in the formation of the desirable v-shaped jawline.
