A double chin can occur as a result of excess weight gain, genetics, or age. As we age, the skin’s underlying structure breaks down. Fat pads formerly located in the mid-face area can slip down, resulting in more pronounced jowls and fat under the chin.
Certain exercises may help. Eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water can also help the body release excess fat. At Physician Aesthetic Specialists, we use Kybella injections to destroy fat cells beneath the chin so they cannot accumulate more fat.
