Have you started to become more and more self-conscious about your neck area? Submental fullness, also known as a double chin, can make you feel self-conscious. Removing this stubborn fat to achieve a slimmer, more sculpted chin can give you a profile you want others to notice.
What Can Cause a Double Chin?
Several things can contribute to the development of a double chin. These factors include genetics, weight gain, and aging. Genetics can play a significant role in the accumulation of excess fat beneath the chin, and having family members with a double chin increases your risk.
Weight gain can contribute to a double chin. When you gain weight, the fat cells in your body can expand, leading to the accumulation of excess fat in the submental area. However, even slim people can have a double chin.
Finally, as we age, the skin and muscles in our face and neck begin to lose elasticity. This laxity leads to sagging skin and the development of a double chin. Collagen and elastin production in the skin also decreases with age, making it less able to maintain its firmness and elasticity.
