Double chin SOS: Proven remedies for a more defined jawline

Is there anything more disturbing than fatty bags under your eyes or on your eyelids? Well, yes, there are worse! It's absolutely the double chin. This subcutaneous fat mass is so unsightly that it requires, in some cases, special remedies.

What is a double chin?

A double chin is the result of an accumulation of fat under the chin or a weakening of its muscles. It can worsen and hang down to give a tired and aged face. This discomfort experienced by women as well as by men at any age leads consequently to a psychological complex that may be treatable with various processing. A double chin can be mild or sometimes quite pronounced and leads people to go under the scalpel.

Causes of a double chin

Double chin is often caused by :

  • Weight gain or loss
  • Aging
  • Poor posture
  • Heredity
  • Sedentary lifestyle

Once the skin separates the neck and the chin loses its elasticity, it becomes slack. In fact, fat cells intensify and subsequently reinforce the double chin. These factors can combine to form an unattractive fatty mass located behind the chin, giving an unattractive and heavy face. It should be noted that when it comes to a recurring genetic phenomenon, the only solution to remedy is cosmetic surgery.

How to remedy it?

A consultation with a health professional is essential before starting any weight loss or exercise program. He can help you determine the best approach to reduce or prevent a double chin based on your physical condition and overall health. There are several options for getting rid of submental fat. You can resort to surgery such as liposuction or undergo cosmetic medicine techniques. It should be noted that good habits can help eliminate the double chin.

Liposuction for double chin correction

The liposuction procedure consists of suctioning out the double chin fatty deposits to get rid of them permanently. The technique then ensures the refinement of the lower face by destroying the fatty bulges that are abundantly present. To do so, analyses of the double chin and the skin type are necessary to prevent any risk during the operation.

To undergo the operation, your plastic surgeon traces the area of the double chin to be treated. Then, he injects a solution that liquefies the accumulated fat. To remove the excess fat, the surgeon introduces tiny cannulas into the neck through small incisions. A connected suction system is then used to remove the accumulated fat tissue. At the end of the procedure, the plastic surgeon closes all incisions and covers them with a bandage.

Cryolipolysis (Fat freezing)

Cryolipolysis is a medical alternative that helps get rid of fat through cold. Thus, the fat cells are weakened and then destroyed at -10 °C without resorting to the scalpel. A coolsculpting machine is used for this aesthetic medicine technique, as it ensures the best results. The session lasts from 30 to 60 minutes and is associated with an emollient treatment.

Double chin firming treatments

Neck and chin firming creams and lotions can help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of the double chin.

Healthy diet 

If the double chin is due to fat accumulation, weight loss can help reduce its appearance. Eating a healthy diet can help in weight loss.

Toning exercises

Doing neck and chin exercises such as head rotations, chin lifts, and jaw movements can help strengthen the neck and chin muscles. These exercises type can reduce the appearance of a double chin. Good posture is also important, as poor posture can weaken the neck and chin muscles, which can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. By maintaining good posture, you can help strengthen these muscles.
