A Double Chin is the result of age-related sag of the lower face and neck, as well as increased fatty tissue deposits underneath your chin.
Loss of structure in the jawline with age-related bone loss and soft tissue changes, including increased skin laxity, means there is less ‘scaffolding’ holding up the structures below. This leads to even greater sag of your fat pad underneath your chin due to lack of support. Increased fat deposition with ageing and poor diet adds to the heaviness and development of your Double Chin. But often there is a genetic component and weight loss alone will not eliminate it.
More often than not a combination of Fat Dissolving injections and Dermal Fillers will be recommended to treat your Double Chin.
Fat Dissolving injections are an effective non-surgical option for treatment of your Double Chin, providing you with a reliable alternative to liposuction and laser ‘fat freezing’. With a series of injectable treatments, Dr. Jodie can minimise the presence of any fatty tissue underneath your chin to better define your neck profile and jawline.
Dermal Filler injections aim to rebuild the bony structure of your jawline and reshape your chin. This is particularly beneficial if your chin is recessed or your jawline is saggy. Treatment not only improves the look of these areas but provides more support to the tissues that drape below the jawline in your neck (aka your Double Chin).
