Double Chin Correction

A double chin is caused by excess fat and loose skin on the neck beneath the chin. The tissue fullness causes the appearance of a second chin beneath the skin which is commonly referred to as double chin.

The facial profile is ruined because of the excess fatty tissue that is visible near the facial features. This tissue fullness is very difficult to camouflage and it diminishes the facial profile. Even if a diet and exercise regimen is followed perfectly, still this fleshy fold is difficult to disappear and there is no improvement in the chin contour.

There are different modalities to address the problem of double chin like regular exercise and diet, non surgical options like fat dissolving injections, PDO threads, Cryolipolysis etc and finally the double chin reduction surgery.

Exercise

Neck and chin toning can be achieved without surgery; all it takes is adding a few targeted exercises to your workout. With advance in age, skin loses collagen and elasticity, causing it to sag around the neck and chin. Two main muscles - the Sternocleidomastoid and Platysma - make up your neck, and toning them can help pull the overlaying skin tighter for a younger, healthier look.

Non Surgical Methods

Cryolipolysis

This procedure, also known as "cool sculpting," treats a double chin. A hand piece is placed under the chin and chills fat cells there almost to the point of freezing, damaging their membranes so they are absorbed and metabolized by the body. The treatment itself takes about an hour, and results are seen over the subsequent two months. The procedure is usually effective and can be performed more than once.

Fat Dissolving Injections

An FDA approved (2016) product, contains a substance that damages fat cells. After applying topical anesthesia, 10 to 15 injection sites are selected in the neck area and the shots of the fat dissolving product are given. The shots can be slightly uncomfortable, and there is potential for swelling, pain, and redness for one week. The fat under the chin will disappear over the course of the next four to six weeks. Like Cryolipolysis, these injections are usually effective and can be repeated two or three times.

PDO Threads

For double chins PDO threads are placed in the ‘fatty’ or ‘loose skin’, the threads not only stimulate fibroblasts to firm and tighten the skin but they also have a ‘lipolysis’ effect which means the break down the fat cells as well.
