Double Chin

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is caused by a layer of fat around the neck. When this layer hangs, it creates the illusion of a second chin.

One of the big misnomers is that a double chin only affects people who are overweight. That is far from true. While diet and weight may be one cause, other factors may also be responsible. A double chin may be simply down to genetics. Sometimes our family make-up determines where and how we store fat. Similarly, you may have a family history of weaker skin elasticity, which in this case, can affect the neck area.

Submental fat can also be a consequence of the natural ageing process. As we get older, our muscles gradually soften, and our skin produces less collagen and elastin fibres. This causes skin to lose its laxity. If the skin begins to sag in this area, it can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Likewise, the concern may also be a result of poor posture, which can weaken the muscles around your neck and chin.

While submental fat is tricky to shift, we offer several non-surgical procedures for targeting localised pockets of fat, each of which use the latest, most advanced techniques. During your initial consultation, our doctor will discuss your concerns and help you create a tailored plan for achieving your goals.
