Condition

Double Chin

Weight gain is a common perception that is associated with the appearance of a double chin. Whilst this condition is often due to a build-up of subcutaneous fat in this area, it does not always develop solely because someone has put on weight. Genetics, ageing and a naturally weak jawline can all be factors that result in a double chin; an appearance that can cause the affected person a lack of self-confidence.

Through ageing, the skin loses laxity and its strong and firm structure. This weakening can lead to loose skin that can sag. When this occurs around the chin it is less supportive to the natural deposits of fat, which start to look like they hang. The progression of the ageing process can become more rapid when smoking, alcohol consumption, poor diet and sun exposure are also frequent lifestyle choices. These factors can contribute to the skin’s structure weakening and breaking down at a much faster rate than it naturally would, leading to the appearance of premature ageing.
When a person’s genetics determine a jawline that is weak, the chin will naturally sit further back towards the neck. This makes a double chin seem more apparent, as the skin beneath the jawline is simply more noticeable. Where excess weight is the concern, this can be addressed through some simple changes in lifestyle with, to include a healthier diet and greater level of exercise. If the subcutaneous fat beneath the chin is too stubborn to shift through diet and exercise alone, then aesthetic treatments may be an appropriate intervention.

Treating this condition through the use of Exilis Elite contouring and Coolsculpting can help to reduce the amount of subcutaneous fat under the chin, permanently. A carefully applied dermal filler can add volume to a weak chin, creating and helping to redefine a more dominant feature, taking less emphasis on the tissue that lies underneath. Reducing a double chin can help you to look and feel more confident and happy with an improved facial contour.

Had an amazing experience at this clinic! Dr. Natalie is amazing and put me completely at ease. I have a fear of needles, but my treatment was painless and easy. I've suffered from horrible eye-bags and hollows my entire life and now my eyes look rested and refreshed! The staff is super friendly as well.

I visited this clinic on a recommendation and I am so pleased. All the staff were really lovely. I had an anti-wrinkle treatment with Natalie (who is brilliant) and I am so pleased with the result. The whole process from start to finish, cannot be faulted and the end result is really natural. I recommend to anyone to visit them.
