The leading causes of double chin

So, what is a double chin? A double chin is also known as submental fat. That is caused by an extra layer of fat, which develops beneath the chin and towards the neck area. Several factors affect the hormones in the body, resulting in a double chin. One of the most common factors is age.

The skin will lose its elasticity as the body ages, leading to the appearance of saggy skin or extra skin around your neck and under the chin. Diet and weight are also critical factors in forming a double chin. Genetics has its factors, as well.

Genes play an essential role in people developing a double chin. Posture and lack of sports activities weaken the muscles and tighten the chin’s skin.

What is double chin surgery?

If we consider skin aging, the neck is the first place that shows age. This is because fat is more likely to collect under the chin than in other body parts.

The extra fat and loose skin will affect their jaw and facial profile. Some treatments you make take into consideration, including a double chin laser for those who are massive fans of new laser treatments.

The laser is designed to tighten the skin, increase collagen, and strengthen the muscles around the affected area.

Some other methods include chin liposuction, submentoplasty, and neck lift.

Type of double chin surgery

Many people prefer to start with a double chin laser treatment, but if the size of the double chin is advanced, the laser may not be beneficial. In this case,

the surgeon will recommend one of the following: 

Chin liposuction 

is a procedure that removes the extra fat under the chin through suction or a small open incision. 


 Another standard procedure combines both chin liposuction and small incisions under the chin. This procedure tightens the muscles and improves skin elasticity. 

Neck lift

neck lift surgery, also called a lower rhytidectomy. It removes the excess skin and tightens the muscles around the neck to offer a more contoured appearance of the face.

All procedures can reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, if your skin isn’t very elastic and has a hairy appearance, you may not be a good candidate for liposuction or submentoplasty.
