Removing the double chin

Double chin is an excess skin fold under the chin, which is the result of localised fat deposition and sagging of the skin. It affects both men and women and can be caused by a number of factors. However, there are effective medical aesthetic and plastic surgery solutions to reduce the size and tighten the area.

What leads to the formation of a double chin?

A double chin is an excess skin fold under the chin and neck area that is the result of localized fat and in most cases sagging of the skin. It affects both men and women. It can be caused by a number of factors: genetics, weight gain and the aging process of the skin.

As we age - as early as our mid-twenties - the process of skin renewal slows down and the production of certain proteins that give the skin its firmness and elasticity - hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin - gradually decreases. As a result, the skin starts to sag and become less and less elastic and resilient, with small wrinkles appearing on its surface, which gradually deepens over time. In many cases, the problem also affects people with slimmer figures, often due to a hereditary predisposition. Aesthetically, this can add several years to your actual age and lead to self-consciousness, and lack of confidence.

Unfortunately, it is not easy to prevent the formation of a double chin if you are genetically predisposed to it and in many cases it is not possible to eliminate the problem once it has developed just by exercising or eating healthy, especially if it is accompanied with sagging skin.

However, there are many effective medical aesthetic and surgical solutions to reduce the double chin and tighten the chin and neck area or even completely eliminate it.

What types of treatments are available for double chin?

  

Coolwaves™ fat reduction

A highly effective, non-invasive alternative to reduce excess fat and sagging in the neck and under the chin area is Coolwaves microwave fat reduction. Coolwaves™ unique technology uses special microwaves that penetrate deep into the skin layers. The microwaves work at a frequency of 2.45 GHz, which is absorbed only in fat molecules, so the treatment does not damage other tissues. Fat cells are broken down by the wave and then naturally eliminated from the body through the metabolic process. It reduces local fat accumulation, reduces sagging and significantly improves the contours of the face and neck.

Morpheus8 radiofrequency with microneedling - Skin tightening

A very popular method is the Morpheus8 procedure, which combines two effective technologies, microneedling and radiofrequency, to ensure skin tightening and proper contouring of the chin area. The thermal energy created by the radiofrequency stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deeper subcutaneous tissues and also disrupts localized fats. As a result, the skin is rejuvenated, fat tissues are reduced, fine lines in the sagging area are smoothed and deeper creases are faded.

Collagen stimulation with Thread Lift

Another very popular and effective method for the problems is Thread Lift for collagen stimulation. The procedure uses small, fine mono threads to stimulate cell regeneration and collagen production, and twisted, screw threads to lift the sagging tissues, creating a stronger support, providing a firm structure that improves the appearance of the area instantly, while the collagen boosting effect ensures long-lasting results. This leads to a more defined contour and tighter skin. This procedure is recommended for those whose main problem is skin laxity.

Liposuction with radiofrequency

One of the most impressive solutions to treat double chin is a minimally invasive, yet exceptionally innovative technology, the radiofrequency liposuction and facial tightening. Since double chin is caused by the accumulation of fatty tissue, radiofrequency liposuction is another excellent option. The minimally invasive method allows the connective tissue in the treated area to tighten and the fatty tissues to liquefy, essentially dissolve. In addition, collagen and elastin production is increased. The regeneration of the tissues is triggered resulting in a lasting improvement of the sagging skin and a tightening of the tissues. The technology solves both the problem of sagging skin and excess fat.

Submentoplasty

If the amount of excess sagging skin and fatty tissues are significant, you may want to consider surgery. Submentoplasty is a completely safe plastic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess fatty tissue through liposuction, followed by excision of the excess skin. The procedure provides firmness to the under-chin area, smoothes out visible wrinkles, creases and folds on the neck, and restores a firm, youthful appearance to the jawline. The results of a submentoplasty are immediately visible and the final form is apparent after about six months.
