A flat or receded chin can make your profile look out of balance. It can also contribute to a heavy double chin area. A pebbled chin is when the chin muscle (mentalis) moves excessively and causes little dips in your chin, especially when you speak. Often it occurs in combination with a receded chin as your muscles are trying to compensate to help your mouth close. It can also happen as a result of ageing from excessive activity of this muscle and loss of collagen.
Why does it happen?
A flat or receded chin is usually genetic. A pebbled chin is genetic or can also happen due to ageing from excessive activity of this muscle and loss of collagen.
We usually use fillers to add structural support to your chin area. This can also be done as part of Full Face Balancing when we assess your whole face and distribute small amounts of filler all over. Fillers are by far the most effective treatment for this.
