What Causes a Double Chin?
While a double chin may seem like a mere fatty tissue deposit, its underlying reasons are generally complex. Common reasons that can cause a double chin are:
- Excess body fat
- Impact of the natural aging process on the skin
- Keeping the chin close to the chest for longer durations, particularly when reading a book or staring at the phone
- Facial structure

- You have no life-threatening or chronic conditions that could interfere with the recovery process after the treatment

- Your skin is fairly elastic
- You are not taking any blood-thinning medications
- You are a nonsmoker
Double Chin Removal Techniques
Several options, including surgical and non-surgical, are available to treat double chin. Your doctor will recommend a treatment option depending on the degree of chin reduction required and a few other factors. Here is a brief overview of treatment procedures to remove the double chin.
Double Chin Liposuction Procedure
This chin reduction surgery involves the surgeon inserting a cannula tube into different chin areas. The device behind this cannula uses gentle suction to remove excess fat from those areas, making your facial contours more prominent. Chin liposuction may also be used with other surgical procedures, such as a neck lift.
Ultherapy, short for ultrasound therapy, is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound waves to melt away stubborn fat and promote collagen production. This combined effect can reduce the loose fat deposit responsible for the double chin and increase skin elasticity in the chin area, giving your face a more youthful appearance.
This non-invasive treatment for the chin doesn’t involve any needles, incisions, or anesthesia. The practitioner uses an applicator against the skin area under the chin during this coolsculpting procedure to administer controlled cooling. As a result, the subcutaneous fat cells there are frozen and destroyed. The body later eliminates these fat cells.
Kybella is an injection-based treatment that involves administering prescription medication, usually deoxycholic acid, into the double chin area. This Double chin treatment helps reduce moderate to severe fatty deposits under the chin. You may need multiple treatment sessions to get the desired results from Kybella, though.
While Kybella treatment is non-surgical, it comes with stricter candidacy criteria, which you should discuss with a skilled practitioner.
Some double chin reduction treatments come with the risk of infection. Therefore, doctors generally advise avoiding rubbing the treated area for at least four hours after the treatment. The best way to avoid any side effects after a chin reduction treatment is to consult with a doctor to discuss specific post-treatment instructions.
How much does a double chin removal cost?
The cost of double chin reduction treatment generally depends on the amount of fat deposit in the treatment area and the choice of the procedure. You can get an accurate price estimate during the initial appointment.
