What is a double chin?
A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common concern among many adults. Excess fat, sagging skin or fullness underneath the chin can create an unbalanced appearance. Some people may feel like their submental fat makes them appear older, heavier and less attractive.
How is it caused?
The causes of a double chin vary widely. It can be caused by excess weight, genetics, age, laxity in the skin or a combination of these issues. Regardless of the cause, it leaves men and women feeling self-conscious about their appearance.
Where the body stores fat is often genetic. For some individuals, fat is stored in the submental area regardless of diet and exercise. Another factor is age. Unwanted fat becomes harder to get rid of as we get older and when you combine this fact with the effect of diminishing collagen in the skin, an unwanted double chin becomes a major concern. Ultimately, having excess fullness underneath the jawline can limit your clothing choices and affect your self-esteem.
