How to get rid of a double chin

A double chin is simply an excess layer of fat under the jaw bone. While it’s not something to be concerned about health-wise, many people who have one feel self-conscious about it and want to remove it. 

But how do you get rid of a double chin? MYA tells you how.

What causes a double chin?

A double chin can be caused by weight gain - fat will build up in this area and loose skin can also appear. 

However, this is not always the case. Genetics play a big role in the way we look, and people can be born with a double chin.

Many people can also develop a double chin due to ageing. We lose elasticity in our skin as we age, so the skin around the jaw and neck can become loose, creating the look of a double chin

How to get rid of a double chin without surgery 

If you look online for how to get rid of a double chin without surgery, articles will tell you that losing weight will get rid of a double chin. But, as we know, it’s not always weight related. 

You can do neck exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles around your jaw to help make it more defined. Yes, they may help slightly, but it takes quite a while to notice results…and you look a bit silly doing them. 

Facial massage techniques are also proven to reduce the appearance of a double chin. But, again, this takes time for any noticeable differences to appear and needs to be done regularly to maintain the results. 

Double chin removal 

Double chin removal surgery can be done in a number of different ways.    

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat cells from beneath the skin. Having liposuction on the neck and chin improves the contours around the jawline, reducing the look of a double chin.    

A facelift is another way of removing a double chin. The procedure can be combined with a neck lift and chin lift to create a smooth and contoured appearance for the full face, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the process. 

The procedure you need depends on the amount of fat under your jaw and the look you’d like to achieve. The best way to find out is by booking a FREE eConsult with a member of our team - here you can talk about your concerns, what your desired outcome would be, and the reasons why you’re considering double chin removal.  

Double chin surgery cost 

The cost of double chin surgery depends on the procedure you choose to undergo. 

The starting cost of liposuction is £3,995, and a facelift, neck lift, and chin lift are from £9,145 upwards. 

When it comes to cosmetic surgery procedures, the total cost depends on individual requirements. You will be given a guide price during your initial eConsultation and a fixed cost following an assessment with your surgeon.

Benefits of double chin removal surgery 

Double chin surgery has the ability to completely change a patient’s life. Not only does it greatly improve confidence, but it can also make everything from applying makeup to dressing much easier, as you’ll have a more defined jaw and neck that you won’t want to hide with scarves and high-neck tops. 

Compared to non-surgical methods, double chin removal is a long-lasting anti-ageing treatment and can make the face look more youthful, proportional and sculpted.
