According to a recent survey, 67% of surveyed people said they are bothered by fullness under the chin and its effect on their appearance. Submental fullness, commonly referred to as “double chin”, is excess subcutaneous fat in the area under the chin. It can affect both men and women, and may appear due to genetic factors, weight gain, or aging. A person does not need to be overweight to have fullness under the chin, and it may even be something they’ve always had. Submental fullness can be frustrating because it may not improve or go away, regardless of proper diet and exercise.
Those that are bothered by submental fullness may find they are self-conscious or embarrassed by the appearance of their profile. They may also feel they look older or heavier than they actually are. For adults bothered by “double chin” and who wish to avoid surgery, we offer a non-surgical approach to permanently get rid of the double chin and improve the profile.
