A double chin, or submental fat, is a common cosmetic concern affecting both men and women. It is characterized by the accumulation of excess fat beneath the chin, creating a bulging or sagging appearance. Dr. Holley and his team offer several double chin treatments to help you achieve a slimmer neck.
What Causes a Double Chin?
Several factors contribute to the development of a double chin. Genetics play a strong role, and if your parents or other family members have a double chin, you may be more likely to develop one. Aging also plays a role, as the skin and muscles in the neck area lose elasticity over time, leading to sagging and drooping. Weight gain is also a contributing factor, as excess fat can accumulate in the neck and chin area.
