Can You Get Rid of a Double Chin?

One of the most frustrating things about a double chin is that you can’t spot-reduce it with exercise. If your lower face has some stubborn fat, these treatments and procedures can help.

Double Chin Treatments

Many people struggle with excess fat beneath their chins. This condition, known as submental fullness, is so common that several modern and effective solutions have emerged to correct it.

Kybella® is one popular method of reducing a double chin. This injectable drug dissolves unwanted fat cells and is often administered in a series of treatments. It may sound a bit strange, but there’s nothing to worry about. Kybella is approved by the Food and Drug Administration and is generally considered safe when administered by a skilled provider like Dr. Sean Weiss.

Liposuction is another great way to eliminate excess facial fat. Typically, it only requires one minimally invasive procedure to create the desired results. It has a relatively short recovery and permanently removes the unwanted fat cells. The outcome is a more defined chin and jawline.

Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly might help reduce your double chin. However, it can be a very long journey, and it may not always produce the dramatic results that you want.
