Excessive weight gain, obesity, hormonal imbalances, and other factors can lead to the accumulation of excess fat beneath the chin, resulting in a condition known as submental fullness. This surplus of fat causes the chin to appear doubled, giving the entire facial profile a more rounded and swollen appearance. As we age, fat tends to accumulate in the lower face and clavicular region, leading to a visible double chin. Additionally, poor blood and lymphatic circulation can contribute to an older-looking appearance. Even if you exercise regularly, you may still have a prominent double chin due to genetic predisposition.
Yes, it can be hereditary! If your grandmother, mother, father, sister, or brother already has a double chin, there’s a good chance you inherited it as well. At La Derma Skin Clinic, we offer effective treatments for double chin reduction, helping you achieve a more defined and sleek under the chin and jawline contour. The specific treatment approach will be tailored to your individual needs and expectations, in consultation with our medical professionals.
