We’ve all been in a situation where you’re scrolling through your photo album and stumble upon a photo or two that catches you off guard. There it is, the uninvited guest in the frame: your double chin. If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and noticed that double chin, you’re not alone.  

Having a double chin can be a pain point for many men and women. It’s a stubborn feature that seems to defy all your best efforts to hide it away. A double chin, also known as submental fullness, can be a source of self-consciousness for many individuals. Fortunately, CAPS has a solution. Let’s dive into the facts about double chins and how you can get rid of yours once and for all. 

What Causes A Double Chin?

A double chin can be a stubborn and frustrating concern, but understanding its causes can help you determine the most effective solution. Two significant factors contributing to the development of a double chin include genetics and weight gain. 

Genetics play a pivotal role in determining your body’s fat distribution, including the tendency to store excess fat under the chin. If your parents or other close relatives have struggled with a double chin, you may be genetically inclined to develop one as well. Even if you maintain a healthy weight overall, genetics can still impact your likelihood of developing a double chin.  

Excessive weight gain and being overweight are the most common reason individuals develop a double chin. When you gain weight, your body stores fat in various areas, and the submental (under the chin) region is no exception. The fat cells in this region can enlarge and lead to a fuller, less defined jawline.  

While addressing weight gain with a balanced diet and exercise may reduce the appearance of a double chin, spot reduction or losing fat from one specific area, is often challenging. You may need additional treatments like chin liposuction to achieve the desired results.  

What Is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction or neck liposuction, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat from the chin and neck area. This double chin removal surgery involves removing fat by making small incisions, through which a cannula is inserted to suction out unwanted fat. The result is a more defined and youthful-looking jawline.  

At CAPS, chin liposuction is performed by one of our seven award-winning plastic surgeons. This experienced team of plastic surgeons will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your goals and individual needs. Our liposuction surgeons in Columbus, Ohio, have helped thousands of individuals achieve their desired results through advanced skill, precision and care.

 “I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience with CAPS! From beginning to end all of my questions were answered and fear of having the procedure performed was gone as soon as I walked in!

Thank you to my doctor and his staff for a wonderful experience!”

  • Desire a slimmer, more contoured neck and jawline.

Other Double Chin Solutions

While chin liposuction is a great, long-lasting solution for a double chin, CAPS is also proud to offer non-surgical treatment options to improve the appearance of your chin and jawline structure. Kybella is an injectable treatment that works to correct the appearance of a double chin. By using deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body, Kybella destroys fat cells in the submental region in just one 15-to-20-minute treatment. 

Another great non-invasive option to treat visible fat bulges under the chin is CoolSculpting Elite. The CoolSculpting procedure freezes away fat and contours the neck area.

With no surgery, needles or downtime, CoolSculpting Elite is a popular double chin solution.
