What is the best treatment for a chin dimple?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A shutterstock_78991573 Q. I absolutely hate my chin! I tried Botox, but I don’t believe it worked. What would be the best treatment for my chin? Should I try Botox again? Or should I try a filler? I just want a soft, non-dimpled chin. A. ​The jaw is created when 3 layers of tissues from the developing fetus join in the middle. While the paired mentalis muscles pull the chin upward, they may not have fused together leaving a dimple. It is also possible the symphysis of the joining jaw bones have left a cleft under the skin, fat and muscle. ​ ​Options to rid of a dimpled chin depend on where the separation is. ​ Consider as you did:
  1. ​Botox as well as,
  2. ​Filler in the dermis, fatty layer, muscle layer
  3. ​Filler along the bone
  4. ​A chin implant
  5. Jaw surgery.
It is best to obtain consultation from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial ENT Surgeon with a lot of experience in this area to offer what is best for you. ​ ​All the best!
