A double chin is a common problem for many people. A double chin is that stubborn fat that hangs below the chin. As a person ages, it can increase in size and sag even more. Depending on genetics and age, a double chin can sometimes form regardless of weight or fitness level. It can also be very difficult to get rid of a double chin. It can be frustrating for those who have a double chin. Having a double chin can also make one look older than they are, as well as look less fit than their exercise regimen may show. Fortunately, there are some tips for reducing your double chin.
The first option to try to reduce a double chin is a few things one can do from home. There are exercises available that can strengthen the muscles in the lower jaw area that can reduce the look of the double chin. There are also skin tightening creams that can pull the skin tighter to also help make this fatty area less noticeable. Unfortunately, these tips are not very effective and only help with very minor fat and sagging in this area. In addition, these options are only temporary at best.
Other possible options are liposuction or a neck-lift to remove a double chin. These can remove the fat and decrease the sagging of the area. Unfortunately, these are surgical procedures that come with some risks on their own. In addition, these procedures can cause bruising and scarring of the area. With liposuction, the fat removal may not be even causing a misshaped area under the chin. Both procedures can also cause pain and swelling that can cause missed work and other issues during the healing process.
Fortunately, there is a more reliable, less invasive method for removing a double chin. There is a procedure that can reduce the fat in the chin area at a more natural pace. Kybella is an FDA approved medication that is injected directly into the fatty area. The medication causes the body to reabsorb the fat. This can lessen the size of the double chin. In addition, one could also use the Thermitight procedure to tighten the sagging skin of the neck to completely remove the double chin. Both of these procedures are safe and non-surgical. This can help one look younger and healthier.
