If you have a nervous tic, or are very expressive facially, you may have noticed a small indentation starting to show on your chin. For some, this is a natural dimple, much like the ones we see in our cheeks when we smile, but, for others, it can be similar to a muscle. This can develop over time, as we flex this area time and again for reasons like those already mentioned. Some people are born with a natural chin cleft.
Liposuction, or some other mode of plastic surgery, is often the first thought for problems like these. They cannot usually be solved by traditional weight loss methods, like diet and working out, but there are alternatives. Choosing a less invasive method is normally better for you, and could save you thousands of dollars, too. Oddly, some people desire a chin cleft, while others seek to get rid of it.
One of the best exercises for getting rid of or reducing a chin cleft is simply stretching the muscles and rubbing olive oil on the area. Flex the muscle by smiling broadly, frowning deeply, or biting the bottom lip as far down as possible. Gently massage a very small amount of olive oil into the indentation. It can take some time for results to become noticeable, but they last longer than most forms of plastic surgery.
There is some discussion as to whether cleft chins are inherited (hereditary) traits, and therefore unavoidable for some people. Collagen injections are one of the most popular non-invasive techniques, and they work well for those who can afford them. There are some risks involved, as with any medical procedure, but sometimes they are worth it to achieve your desired result.
Although there are only a very few facial exercises and techniques that will get rid of chin clefts, there are many people who actually pay to have them done. So many people in the world would rather choose to have this look than to get rid of it that much of the medical research in this area is focused on adding a cleft instead of eliminating one. However, if you choose to get rid of the cleft, remember that choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon to consult with is always your best bet.
