What are the reasons for double chin?

  • Anatomy

For people with shorter jawlines, a double chin can occur more easily. Also, there is a similar problem for those who have a weak jawline or chin. So the anatomy of the body can be one of these reasons.

  • Age

Every person’s skin loses its elasticity as he/she ages and gets older. So the skin drops down, and it causes a double chin in the face.

  • Excess fat

|Being overweight can be one of the reasons to have a double chin. The fat that accumulates in the face can increase the chin’s volume and make it double.

  • Genetics

If there are many people in the person’s family members who have double chin regardless of their age or weight, it will increase the possibility to have a double chin.

  • Bad posture

The posture of sitting, standing, lying, etc., can cause many kinds of problems. These problems include some pain in the neck, waist and other parts of the body and make the skin saggy.

3) Healthy diet habits

It is a good idea to have four servings of vegetables and three servings of fruits a day and stop eating processed foods. It should be a positive habit to use healthy fats like olive, nuts etc., and not using fried foods and sugar. All of these habits could keep you more healthy and prevent your face and body from accumulating fat.

4)Cosmetic treatments:

  • Neck Liposuction: In this procedure, by removing fat from beneath the skin, the shape of the chin and neck will look more sculpted.

  • Face-lift: By this procedure, the surgeon will remove fat and loose, saggy skin around the chin and neck, so the double chin will be removed easily. 

  • Neck-lift: There are two types of neck-lift procedures to remove extra skin (cervicoplasty) or tighten neck muscles (platysmaplasty) to make the contours of the neck and chin better. 

  • Chin augmentation: The lines and shape of the chin, neck and jawline can be improved by chin augmentation surgery. This procedure is also known as genioplasty. Generally, this surgery can improve the contours of the chin and cause a more naturally attractive balance between facial features by placing an implant around a patient’s existing chin bone. 

  • In many cases, chin implants can be combined with liposuction and reshape the chin and neck and fix all its problems.
