Fat Accumulation Under the Chin, Double Chin

Subcutaneous fat in the submental area (i.e. fat accumulation under the chin) is a commonly noted facial feature and can often be present in individuals who are not otherwise overweight.  Genetics, aging and excess fat may be contributing factors to this phenomenon.  This area around the neck; otherwise referred to as a “double chin”, can be resistant to weight reduction measures. 

Liposuction is often used under the chin for aesthetic improvement, while neck reconstruction is one of the more invasive surgical alternatives.  All surgeries are associated with the known risks of anesthesia, infection, bleeding, bruising, and scarring, along with the possibility of poor outcome and the expected discomfort and recovery time for the patient.  No approved or rigorously evaluated non-surgical alternatives currently exist to reduce unwanted fat accumulation under the chin.
