Double chin is the condition where deposition of fat combined with sagging of the skin under the jaw makes a swelling with the appearance of a second chin. Appearance of a double chin is a common indication of weight gain, obesity, etc., but not always, since it may be caused by a combination of a number of factors. These factors includes weight gain and obesity which causes deposition of fat under the jaws, loosening and sagging of the skin due to age, poor walking and sitting portion which causes the skin to lose elasticity, and even genetics.
Double chin by itself does not pose significant health issues. It may be an indicator of weight gain and obesity. Double chin can be easily reduced by following some basic exercise regimens and making certain lifestyle changes.
Who is eligible for the treatment? (When is the treatment done?)
Double chin has no significant health issues by itself. Treatment options may be pursued to reduce the visual appearance of the double chin.
How is the Double Chin Reduction treatment done?
Reduction or removal of double chin can be done by some simple exercises that target the lower face, jaws, and neck region. When done correctly, these exercises help to reduce fat deposited under the jaws while also toning the muscles and skin. For people who cannot exercise or exercise does not show significant results, there are other treatment options available. These include proper dieting regimens, face masks to increase skin elasticity, and cosmetic surgical options like liposuction. Some medications can also help reduce double chin.
