Double chins are an incredibly common aesthetic complaint for both men and women. They are aesthetically displeasing and can ruin a youthful profile and neckline.
Having a double chin does not necessarily mean you are overweight, as even thin people can develop them. Instead, they are more related to the shape of the jaw and throat, and no amount of exercise or dieting can correct the issue.
Two factors conspire to create double chins: genetics and age. Collections of fat accumulate under the chin that are difficult to lose with weight loss and exercise alone. This is often a genetic predisposition or can be associated with weight gain. The second factor is age and gravity. As we age, the skin under the chin loses its elasticity and is not taut enough to carry the weight of fat deposits, creating a double chin. Fortunately, we have developed procedures that can conquer both your genetic inheritance and the effects of aging!
One of the most common double chin treatments includes Belkyra to remove excess fat under the chin. Belkyra is the first and only health Canada approved injectable treatment for improving the appearance of fullness under the chin.
When decreased skin tone and laxity is a contributing culprit for a double chin, tightening of the skin will need to be addressed once excess fat is removed. Various treatments offered by Sante Medical can be employed including Ultherapy and Laser Resurfacing.
After a thorough, one-on-one examination and consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan for your double chin. Typically, the plan will include a procedure to reduce the fat pocket, followed by a procedure to tighten the skin under the chin.
