Chubby cheeks and a dimpled chin are cute in little kids. In adults, it would be called a ‘double chin’’ and is a cause for concern. All of us love seeing a sleek profile when we look in our mirrors. Having a double chin will reflect a grim and disappointing reality in the mirror. Known medically as submental fat, a double chin can happen due to a variety of reasons, and there are several ways to reduce it. Read along to know more about a double chin, its causes, and the various ways by which you can get rid of it.

What Is Double Chin?
Double chin is clinically called ‘submental fat’ and refers to the accumulation of fat under your lower jaw. A double chin is often associated with obesity. Factors like hereditary causes, loose and sagging skin due to ageing, anatomy, and airway positioning influence the appearance of a double chin.

Double chin portrays a negative image to people. You start feeling low in confidence and often can become a subject of ridicule among peers.

Getting rid of a double chin is vital in this world where everything from celebrities to Instagram influencers everything reeks of perfection. Diet and exercise go a long way in helping you lose your extra chin, but they are tedious and time-consuming. Cosmetic surgery offers faster and more effective ways to help you eliminate the double chin. There are surgical as well as nonsurgical methods to treat double chin.

Getting Rid Of Double Chin

A double chin is a cause of embarrassment and frustration for people. A double chin can be removed through various ways that include diet and weight management and also cosmetic procedures, both surgical and non-surgical.

  • Healthy Eating
    Excess body weight is one of the primary reasons for a double chin. Adopting a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a height-appropriate weight can help reduce the appearance of a double chin. Eat a balanced diet that contains lots of fresh vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and whole grains. Avoid processed, sugary food that is high in calories and low in nutrition.
  • Regular Exercise
    Regular physical activity helps reduce obesity and aids in weight management. Exercising regularly helps to keep you fit and tones all the muscles of your body, including your neck and jawline. Cardio exercises like cycling, jogging, and swimming, along with strength training exercises aimed at the neck and jaw would prove beneficial. There are also various yoga poses that you can practice under the guidance of a learned trainer.
  • Proper Hydration
    Water helps to keep the skin plump and firm. Drink adequate amounts of water to help reduce the appearance of double skin.
  • Kybella
    This is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that appeals to people who want freedom from their double chin but are not ready to go under the knife for the same. This procedure involves the use of Kybella, an FDA-approved injectable. Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, an acid that is found in human bile whose primary action is to destroy fat cells.
    The Kybella injectable performs in a similar way. When injected below the chin, it destroys the fat cells and also triggers a chain of inflammatory reactions, and the body ends up clearing away all the destroyed cells. Kybella is a technique that dissolves the fat below your skin, and in doing so, gives a chiselled appearance to your face.
  • Coolsculpting
    Coolsculpting, also known as lipocryolysis, is a method of destroying fat cells by freezing them to death. This procedure involves using an ice pad under your chin. An applicator device is turned on. You may feel different sensations like cramping and pulling initially. As the procedure progresses, you will feel completely numb. The applicator along with the chilling temperature of the ice pad, destroys the fats in the targetted area. Coolsculpting requires multiple sessions to achieve the desired results fully.
    This procedure is ideally suited to young people with healthy, non-sagging skin. People with loose skin with age-related sagging is not suitable for this procedure.
  • Liposuction
    This method is best suited for people who desire immediate results. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves making an incision and sucking the fat out from under your chin. The procedure is performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon and ends up giving you a chiseled jawline. Recovery from this surgical process takes a few weeks.
  • Ultherapy
    Ultherapy, also known as ultratherapy, is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten sagging skin. It works by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that is responsible for maintaining the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. This collagen helps to gradually tone and shape your jaw and neckline. Ultherapy can be performed without anaesthesia by a qualified cosmetic surgeon.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments
    Radiofrequency treatments make use of heat energy to heat up the fat cells in your double chin. This heating dislodges the fat cells and also stimulates the production of collagen. The fat cells are eliminated by the body’s natural drainage system and the collagen helps to tone up and tighten the muscles of your jaw and neckline, thus eliminating your double chin.

A double chin is a source of embarrassment and can have a  dampening effect on one’s mental health. But a double chin can also be gotten rid of.
