PURPOSE To determine the influence of chin prominence on preferred lip position in profile. METHODS The average profile was constructed from the profile of a young Chinese man who has typical Chinese facial profile. Changes in chin position were established by altering the antero-posterior position by protruding or retruding the chin in increments of 5(More)
