Why You Have A Double Chin

There are several reasons people develop a double chin between the neck and jaw, and not all of them have anything to do with weight gain, although that can also contribute. 

Other possible causes include inheriting the tendency from your parents, poor posture, which causes the supporting muscles of the neck to weaken over time, and simply aging, which can cause the skin to lose its elasticity. Whatever the cause, you need a solution now. You can try several exercises to strengthen this area and reduce submental fat, as well as cardio to lose fat overall. If these at-home steps do not work, you should talk with a qualified plastic surgeon about possible solutions. Here are some options, both for those trying to lose a double chin at home and those considering cosmetic options.

Fitness For You Face

If you want to get rid of a double chin on your own, facial exercises can help to some extent. Strengthening your neck, jaw, and local connective tissue can help reduce submental flab. One chin exercise takes just a few minutes a day, which will help define the facial muscles and give the jawline a firmer structure. Here are the steps:

  1. Look up at the ceiling with your head tilted all the way back.
  2. Press your lips together as if kissing the ceiling, and stretch the area under your chin.
  3. Stop pursing your lips and return your head to its normal position.

If you have excess fat in the chin area, these types of exercises will garner few results if you do not combine them with cardio. To lose fat, one has to be in a caloric deficit, which is made much easier by doing exercises like running, biking, and swimming.

Surgical Fat Removal With Liposuction

Liposuction may be the right choice if you want to remove the fat cells that cause a double chin all at once. Liposuction for the double chin physically removes fat from the chin and can also be used to reshape the jawline and slightly reduce the chin size, if necessary. It is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under general anesthesia or, for the right patient, under local anesthesia. Although chin liposuction is a simple procedure with minimal downtime and relatively few complications, patients must seek a plastic surgeon with medical training.

Chin AirSculpt®

Patients that want to obtain results that are as significant as with traditional liposuction, but do not want to deal with the risks associated with invasive surgery, should opt for Chin AirSculpt®.

Chin AirSculpt® uses patented technology to remove fat from the chin and neck region without the use of scalpels, stitches, needles, or general anesthesia. The same amount of fat can be permanently eliminated as with chin liposuction, only the results are far more precise, entry points diminutive in comparison, and downtime less than half as long.

This minimally invasive uses automated devices to pluck fat cells one-by-one through tiny, two-millimeter-wide entry points. These entryways heal to look like small freckles, if they even form at all, whereas traditional chin liposuction can leave huge scars instead.

For more information about why Chin AirSculpt® is the optimal way to remove submental fat for good, call our Sacramento office or any of our locations worldwide to schedule your complimentary consultation.
