Excess hair growth: The normal amount of body hair for women varies. Most of the time, a woman only has fine hair, or peach fuzz, above the lips and on the chin, chest, abdomen, or back. If you have coarse, dark hairs in these areas, the condition is called hirsutism. See your doctor , excess hair growth on chin , belly could be altered hormones. And condition like Polycystic ovarian syndrome.
