How do you get rid of a double chin?

A double chin can be treated with fat dissolving injections, as well as various other treatment options.

Many people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their face because of a double chin. The good news is that a non-surgical treatment can often go a long way in improving the contours of the face and achieving a slimmer facial shape. Among the most effective treatments for a double chin are fat dissolving injections, which help to get rid of excess fat gradually over time with multiple treatment sessions.

Read on to find out more about this non-surgical approach, as well as some of the other treatment options that are currently available…

What is a double chin?

A double chin is a common issue for many people. Also known as submental fat, the condition occurs when a layer of excess fat develops below the chin. In most cases, a double chin is associated with weight gain, but there are a number of other contributing factors, including genetics, age, loose skin, posture and diet. Fortunately, there are a few ways in which excess skin in the chin area can be reduced for an enhanced facial contour.

What are the treatment options?

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your chin, the good news is that there are a number of treatments currently available.

Fat dissolving injections are often an effective option — this minimally invasive procedure involves the administration of a specially formulated fat dissolving solution directly into the fatty tissue of your double chin. Over time, the solution works by dissolving the fat. Most patients will need to come in for multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results.

Another option for the treatment of a double chin, a process known as lipolysis makes use of liposuction or laser heat to get rid of excess fat. The process works by melting excess fat and achieving a tighter, smoother-looking appearance.

In some cases, one may opt for a surgical procedure to address a double chin. It is important to understand, however, that surgery comes with certain risks and potential complications, as well as a longer recovery time when compared with a non-surgical treatment.

If you are considering double chin surgery, it is advisable that you speak to a professional for guidance and information.

Are there any at-home remedies?

In some cases, lifestyle changes can help to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Healthy weight loss will get rid of excess fat, although many people find that diet and exercise do not achieve the results they desire. For this reason, non-surgical treatments like fat dissolving injections are very popular.

If you think that you could benefit from weight loss, try to eat a healthy, balanced diet and practice portion control at each meal. Speak to a medical professional if you need help formulating an eating plan that is sustainable for you.
