Double chins are a 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. Even thin people have them. Double chins can be related to the shape of the jaw and throat. In this circumstance, no amount of diet or exercise will correct the issue.
Two factors conspire to create double chins. One is hereditary. 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.
One of the most common double chin treatments includes Liposculpture to remove excess fat under the chin. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia in a minimally invasive way, improving the contour that leads to a double 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, Laser Resurfacing, and SkinTyte.
After a thorough examination and consultation, Sante Medical 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.
