Living with a double chin can be discouraging for those of us who try to stay in shape. While living an active lifestyle can certainly go a long way in sculpting one’s body, submental fat is another issue altogether. There are sadly no exercises designed for under chin fat burning. If you’re struggling with persistent fat under your chin, seeking a professional treatment option may be right for you. Illuminate Plastic Surgery is happy to provide a range of non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment options to help you achieve your ideal image.
Submental fat or a “double chin” is the buildup of fat under the jaw. This excess layer of fat can develop from weight gain and aging. Due to the gradual loss of collagen our faces experience, developing a double chin becomes much more likely after 30. Whether you’ve developed your double chin through age or weight gain, its appearance is most likely unwelcome. This buildup of excess fat can make one feel older, heavier, and less attractive.
Liposuction is a procedure that involves the use of a suction machine to surgically remove excess fat from unwanted areas on the body, such as below the chin. The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who have persistent bulges of fat that have not responded favorably to diet and exercise.
Results of your double chin reduction depends on your particular treatment option. Typically, most of the laser and non-invasive procedures offered at our San Jose & Palo Alto plastic surgery center do not involve downtime. Surgical procedures, such as liposuction, may require bedrest. However, regardless of the needed treatment, you can rest assured knowing that our specialists always aim to do everything possible to minimize downtime and post-treatment discomfort for our patients. For specific information, we encourage you to visit our respective treatment pages or contact us directly.
