Sometimes, a double chin develops as a result of weight gain. Unfortunately, even if you shed the weight by exercising and eating healthily, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that the double chin will disappear. The neck area has also been known to be extremely difficult to target.
Other times, double chins are genetic. If your closely related family members have a double chin, you are more likely to develop one. Furthermore, people with a genetic predisposition to low skin elasticity are especially prone to having neck fat or droopy skin around the chin. Another big culprit of double chins? Age.
While there are plenty of gimmicks on the market that claim to tone up your chin, there’s little evidence that non-surgical means can effectively and permanently remove fat on double chins. According to Dr Puah, the real fix is to reduce and remove the excess fat with liposuction, a clinical and surgically proven method to effectively treat this problematic area.
