On the Double: Three Procedures to Help You Ditch the Double Chin Fast

 

There’s no hiding from it. When you’ve got an unwanted double chin, you can’t help but notice it every time you look in the mirror. Being in such a highly visible area, the double chin can cause great stress and anxiety—making you look heavier and older than you actually are. And unfortunately, there’s not much you can do to stop it from happening.

What Causes My Double Chin?

Double chins, scientifically called submental adiposity, can form over time for a number of reasons and are often resistant to diet and exercise. While weight gain can certainly be a factor, aging, genes, and even your posture can affect the appearance of your chin. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag.

When this happens, it’s common to notice extra skin or fat underneath your neck, especially if double chins run in your family. Your skin can even lose elasticity over time from poor posture as the muscles in your neck and chin weaken.

Sometimes the excess fat is stubborn and despite adopting a nutritious dietary and exercise routine, certain individuals find it challenging to overcome fat deposits beneath the chin, as the underlying causes prove to be more intricate than mere weight gain.

How To Get Rid of a Double Chin

While that may sound discouraging, keep your chin up because you’ve got options to do something about it. Illume Cosmetic Surgery & MedSpa offers three different procedures for both men and women that can reduce excess fat and tighten up your sagging skin.

    Kybella

  • Kybella is an FDA-approved procedure administered as a series of injections to the area under the chin. The injections destroy fat cells, contouring the chin and producing gradual results.
  • Everyone’s chin profile is different, so your physician will tailor treatment to you. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Once you’ve achieved the look you want, retreatment is rarely required.
  • The ideal candidate for Kybella is someone with moderate fullness and enough skin elasticity to recover after the fat disappears. Improvement can be seen in virtually every person who has submental fullness. Most patients experience minimal downtime, which is most likely after the initial treatment. When planning your treatment, consider your social commitments and work schedule. 

 

    Liposuction For Double Chin

  • Liposuction is a procedure that can be used all over the body to reshape specific areas with localized fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of the patient’s physique. When applied to the double chin, a small incision is made under the skin where a tube can be inserted. Through this tube, fat is sucked out to sculpt the chin and neck contour. While it may sound intense, chin liposuction typically requires only local anesthesia to numb the general area and can be extremely effective. The duration of liposuction treatments typically ranges from one to two hours, with a recovery period of approximately one to two weeks. As swelling subsides, visible results are expected to emerge around the one-week mark.

 

    CoolMini

  • CoolMini is designed to freeze fat cells in the chin area using a technology called Cryolipolysis. During the procedure, cold energy is delivered into the treatment area via a handheld device. The process breaks down the fatty tissue and allows it to be processed out of the body. CoolMini is a non-invasive procedure and can achieve gradual, natural-looking results over just a few weeks. CoolMini consistently delivers encouraging results with high patient satisfaction in as few as 1-2 office visits, matching the effectiveness of other CoolSculpting applicators. CoolMini is a non-invasive procedure, and visible changes can be observed as early as 3 weeks, with final results typically manifesting between 3-4 months.

 

Do Neck Exercises Get Rid of my Double Chin?

While performing chin exercises can be a great way to strengthen your neck muscles, it doesn’t do a lot for your double chin and the access fat that surrounds it. The three procedures we mentioned above are going to be your best bet at getting rid of your double chin.

If you’ve started to see your double chin set in, now is the best time to reach out for help. If you believe you are a good candidate and are ready to tighten up your double chin, schedule a consultation with one of our medical professionals to find out which procedure is right for you.

Are results from these procedures permanent? 

The results of these procedures are long-lasting, however, weight gain may lead to a reappearance of the double chin. Sustaining your desired outcome requires a commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
