A receding chin may also be called a small chin. Its appearance shows less definition in the front part of the jawline, causing the chin to look as though it is sloping back towards the neck. It is a concern that can affect both men and women, regardless of age, and can be the cause of other aesthetic concerns – such as a double chin.
Although a receding chin is quite common, and makes up a person’s unique appearance, however it can be a condition that gives an unbalanced look to the lower part of the face.
In most cases, a receding (or weak) chin is a genetic trait that a person will be born with. The genes that are inherited will have run through the family line, and will influence the development of the mandible bone – more commonly referred to as the jaw. Although mainly an aesthetic concern, in some more significant (and rarer) cases a receding jaw can also lead to issues with speech, sleep and eating.
When genetics are not involved, this condition can be the result of trauma or injury to this part of the face. Significant impact to the jaw can cause damage which changes the shape and definition of the jawbone. Certain medical conditions, or a viral infection early in life, can also alter the development and growth of the jaw.
