Double Chin

What is a Double Chin:

A double chin is a phenomenon caused by a layer of subcutaneous fat around the neck that sags down and creates a wrinkle, making the owner appear to have a second chin. There are 3 main causes of excess fat under the chin which is age, genetics and obesity. It is most common on people who are elderly or obese. 

A person of average weight can bear a double chin as well, depending on their bone structure and amount of loose skin. It is more visible when the bottom jaw is lowered or the head is tilted down. Obesity which is one of the main causes of a double chin especially in people under the age of 65 can usually be remedied by a change of diet and a series of different exercises targeted at the lose skin under the chin. 

A change of diet and a more active life style will not only get rid of a double chin but is overall beneficial to a persons health.

Diet and Weight Loss to Reduce a Double Chin:

Obesity can be a major factor for alot of people suffering from a double chin. In this instance a person should be looking to loose weight before contemplating surgery, in fact your family doctor or local GP dedicated to your health and well being should offer a natural remedy to healthy weight lose before contemplating surgery as an alternative. 

Surgery should always be considered a fail option. However, not only fat people have double chins. Even thin people get them, typically due to the shape of the jaw and throat. In situations where exercise won’t make a difference due to the natural shape of your chin and neck then there are other alternatives like surgery where they can perform a chin implant once the patient has lost the initial saggy chin either through natural means or surgery.
