“Weak” chins were traditionally disliked since it was believed to reflect a person’s character. This is, of course absolutely untrue. A weak chin may disrupt the desired symmetry of the face. Correction of the disproportion of the chin with the surrounding facial features is effected by the use of a chin implant. Chin augmentation involves placing a small implant at the point of the chin to allow a better balance of the chin to the nose and the face. A mentoplasty (chin lift) is frequently performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty (nose job). It is sometimes used in conjunction with a facelift to re-contour the jawline/neck.
Younger individuals, some even in their early twenties have a double chin caused by genetics. It is not age or diet related. Double chins were actually praised, and even idealized in the past, but this no longer the case. Through liposuction the double chin is removed. The scars are negligible and the recovery quick.
