How Can I Correct My Congenital Chin Ptosis?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi, I would like to inquire about a consultation for chin ptosis treatment. It’s congenital, I’ve had it all my life and never had any facial surgery. I tried Botox for the first time a couple weeks ago for it and I feel like it made it even worse.

A: I am not confident that congenital chin ptosis in its entirely can be improved…at least the lower lip position can probably not be improved. The overhanging chin pad and the deep siubmental crease can be improved by excision.
