A double chin can happen to anyone, no matter how healthy and active you are. An unfortunate side effect of gravity and sometimes genetics, the double chin is a despised feature that affects many people. You may notice it when you see photos of yourself, or feel that it makes you look older or heavier when you see it in the mirror each day.
You can try to disguise your double chin by avoiding blunt-cut hairstyles, or you can try contouring makeup tricks to camouflage the chin and give the face a more sculpted look. Don’t wear turtlenecks and high-neck tops, which draw attention to your chin.
But if you’re looking for a more permanent way to banish your double chin, there are some highly effective — and convenient — options today that may be just what you’re looking for.
Resolve your double chin with a facelift or mini-facelift
If you have sagging or excess skin in the chin and neck area, a facelift is often the go-to solution.
Although it was once a more involved procedure, the mini-facelift has changed that. A mini-facelift is an outpatient procedure with smaller incisions that addresses signs of aging with less downtime. A mini-facelift corrects:
- Sagging or excess skin in the face and neck
- Fat that has fallen or displaced (a common cause of double chin)
- Deep creases on the middle to lower facial areas
A mini-facelift can be performed under local anesthesia and most patients are able to return to work in three to seven days.
Neck liposuction can help with your double chin
If the only cause of a double chin is excess fat in the chin area, neck lipo is a fast and effective option. Today’s less invasive liposuction procedures, including Smartlipo™, are perfect for the smaller area of the neck. Smartlipo also enhances skin tightening with specialized laser technology. There’s less swelling, bruising, and downtime than traditional lipo.
Patients who choose liposuction should have good skin elasticity. Because the procedure doesn’t include any skin removal, those with excess skin may be better suited for a mini facelift.
Kybella™ injections can decrease your double chin
A game-changer in the fight against the double chin, Kybella is the only FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment that is proven to address excess fat in the chin area. Most people achieve a slimmer, more contoured chin within two to four appointments. No surgery, no anesthesia, and minimal downtime means you can finally get rid of that double chin without a major disruption to your busy life.
