Common Causes Of Double Chin
You can work out all you want, but some people cannot escape a double chin. There are many contributing factors to this condition that go beyond weight gain, and some of them are outside your control. Three common factors include excess fat, skin elasticity, and genetics.
It is no surprise that excess fat can contribute to a double chin. Extra weight is one part of the puzzle you may have some control over. However, it is important to note that excess weight gain is not the only contributing factor. Many people put on weight without ever experiencing a double chin, while others are within their ideal weight but still have one.
With age, your skin’s elasticity diminishes, including the skin under your chin. Without the firmness of your skin to hold tight to your jaw, any amount of fat under your chin will push down against your neck skin, and a double chin can form.
For some, it is simple genetics. Due to your genes, a short jawline can leave little space for excess fatty tissue to go and thus increase your chance of a double chin. Although you may have inherited your double chin from your parents, the good news is that you do not have to live with it.
Dr. Kreitzberg can further explain the causes of submental fullness and help you select the most appropriate treatment option. Neck liposuction has a history of producing safe and effective results for treating double chin.
Are You A Good Candidate For Neck Liposuction?
If you are considering undergoing neck liposuction, you should be near your ideal weight and able to maintain it. Ideal surgical candidates should also:
- Be in good health
- Have realistic expectations
- Be able to take a few days off to recover
- Have good skin elasticity and muscle tone
Dr. Kreitzberg can determine if you are a good candidate for submental liposuction or if you would benefit better from another procedure.
