Continue reading to discover the causes of a double chin and the various treatments that can be used to correct it.

Causes of a Double Chin

A double chin is typically caused by an accumulation of excess fat under the chin. However, it can also be caused by sagging skin or a combination of both. Several factors contribute to the development of a double chin, including:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Weight gain
  • Poor posture

Treatment Options for a Double Chin

There are several treatment options available for correcting a double chin. The most effective treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the double chin and the patient’s individual goals and preferences. Some of the most popular treatment options include:

  • Chin Augmentation – Dr. Cohen can restore harmonious balance to the appearance of your facial features by augmenting the size of your chin and shaping it with care. During this procedure, a fitted implant is placed on the chin bone, remarkably improving the contours of your face. 
  • Liposuction – Liposuction is a well-known surgical procedure that removes excess fat from under the chin. During the process, a small incision is made under the chin, and a thin cannula is used to suction the excess fat. 
  • Kybella – Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment designed to eliminate excess fat under the chin. The treatment involves a series of injections that gradually dissolve the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This treatment typically requires several sessions to achieve the desired results.
  • CoolSculpting – CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses a special device to freeze and eliminate fat cells. The procedure is typically painless and requires no downtime, but achieving the desired results may take several sessions.
