Double Chin

Excess weight carried underneath the chin, typically between the chin and neck. Often associated with weight gain or losing skin elasticity due to aging.

What is it?

A double chin, clinically termed as submental fat, is a common concern that arises when a layer of fat accumulates beneath your chin. It is often linked with weight gain, but you don't need to be overweight to have a double chin. Beyond weight gain, submental fat can be a result of genetics, reduced collagen production from aging or even poor posture that weakens the neck and chin muscles.


How is it treated?

Many patients report struggling to shrink their double chin and are frustrated by the lack of progress. The good news? There are safe, reliable treatment options. Many patients have success with non-invasive treatments such as injectable deoxycholic acid, or Kybella, which eradicates fat cells after being injected just beneath the skin. 


To learn what treatment options works best for you and your double chin, schedule a consultation with our offices in Bridgeport, Clarksburg, Elkins, Morgantown, Parkersburg, South Charleston and Wheeling, West Virginia; in Waynesburg and Uniontown, Pennsylvania and in Marietta, Ohio. Depending on your condition and your goals, our dermatologists can help you find the best treatment option.
