Double Chin - Know Forms Of Procedure To Handle It!

One of the effects of ageing on face is double chin that is caused due sagging of skin and extra fat deposits under the chin. It could also be due to increased weight, sagging skin, or merely genetic. Given that it produces an aged appearance, people with double chin are constantly trying to find ways to hide it. There are two main muscles in the neck area, and toning or tightening them helps to reduce the double chin appearance. There are grooming tips like specific kinds of clothes, hairstyle, and makeup to conceal it. There are also some exercises which are believed to reduce the prominence of the double chin. However, these are temporary measures, and for a permanent solution, plastic surgical correction is the only method of choice.

Talk to your plastic surgeon and understand what to expect before going ahead with the surgical correction.

Chin liposuction: In people with excess fat deposition, chin liposuction where the excess fat is suctioned off is a good treatment option. This is a time-tested method and produces results immediately.

Weight management and regular exercise can go a long way in preventing recurrence of the double chin. Speak to your doctor to draw up a weight management plan and an exercise regimen that can help in the same.
