Double chin: the causes and how to get rid of it

The double chin. It goes by many names: the wattle, turkey-gobbler, tech-neck, or the ultimate selfie-killer, a double chin or submental fullness is one of the most common complaints we hear in the clinic. And with social media and the rise of a photo-obsessed world, the numbers of patients seeking treatment is rising.

Why do I have fat under the chin?

A double chin can be caused by genetics, aging, or weight gain. it's important to note that even with diet and exercise, sometimes the unwanted fat and extra skin doesn’t go away and can make people look heavier and appear older than they actually are. Until recently, liposuction was the only option available to reduce a double chin. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that requires an incision and recovery time. The good news? There's a new sheriff in town. Chin Sculpting is the latest treatment using the most innovative technologies to treat submental fullness without surgery or a prolonged recovery process.

What's the deal with Chin Sculpting?

Chin Sculpting is a non-surgical treatment that involves a series of fat-dissolving injections that breaks down fat cells in the under-chin area and dissolves them. Once the fat cells are destroyed, those cells can no longer store fat. Therefore the need for additional treatment to maintain the results is not expected.
