Double Chin Removal

Having a double chin is a common concern in both men and women of all ages and body types. With the emergence of new skin treatments and technologies, it is now possible to get rid of your double chin without having to go through surgery. Non-invasive treatments are now available for double chin removal, resulting in a contoured, young-looking face.

What is a double chin?

Double chin, also known as submental fat, is an excess layer of fats that can be found below the lower jaw. The common misconception about having a double chin is that it is caused by weight gain alone. However, this is not entirely true as other factors can also cause double chin.

What causes double chin?

Different factors can lead to the formation of double chin. These include aging, facial anatomy, genetics, diet, lifestyle, and poor posture.


You may be surprised to know that aging is actually the main cause of double chin. As we age, we lose collagen, causing sagging of the skin below the chin and around the neck. Metabolism also significantly slows down, resulting in the accumulation of fat and eventually, the formation of noticeable double chin.

Facial Anatomy

A common cause of double in many patients is their natural facial anatomy. In particular, a receded chin or weak jawline causes the skin to be loosely drawn over the face. People with these types of facial structure would only need minimal increase in fat deposits or decrease in skin elasticity to develop a double chin. This is one of the reasons why even people with slim body types also present with double chin.


Genetics is also a strong risk factor in having a double chin. If your family members and relatives tend to have double chin, it is highly likely that you will also develop a double chin. While having a double chin is not exactly inherited, the factors that contribute to its formation, such as bone structure, obesity, and thin or less elastic skin, are genetic traits.


Excess fat deposits due to a high-calorie diet is the most common cause having a double chin. The fat accumulates under the chin and below the jaw, hence forming a double chin.


A sedentary lifestyle, prolonged sun exposure, and smoking can cause collagen loss, which weakens the skin integrity. This favors the development of  a double chin.

Poor posture

When you habitually slouch and hunch, your supporting muscles in the neck and chin may become loose and weak, causing the appearance of a double chin.

How can you get rid of double chin?


Double chin removal is traditionally done through surgery. One of the surgical procedures done is chin liposuction, which is a suction technique that removes excess subcutaneous fat. Another surgical procedure is the chin tuck, in which the skin is tightened while excess fat is removed from the chin and the upper neck area. A more extensive surgery is the neck lift, which gets rid of excess skin and tightens the muscles of the chin and neck regions.

Non-invasive treatments

New non-invasive treatments, such as injectables, ultrasound devices, and radiofrequency equipment, are now available for the removal of double chin. These non-surgical treatments have immediate results, considerably lower downtime, and cause less discomfort.

What are the non-surgical treatments for double chin?

HIFU Ultraformer III

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Ultraformer III is a non-surgical facelift treatment that targets double chin and sagging skin for a V-shaped, contoured face. Ultraformer III delivers precise ultrasound pulses to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. The ultrasound pulses also melt excess fats in the double chin. The overall results of the HIFU Ultraformer III are similar to the results of surgical procedures such as chin tuck and neck lift.

Chin Fillers

Fillers can be injected to the chin and jaw region to augment the structure of the face. Fillers are gel-like, hyaluronic acid-based injectables that restore facial volume and induce collagen production for young-looking, V-shaped face.
