How to Get Rid of Double Chin

Sunday, 13 December 2009

double chinMedically speaking, the repulsive, unattractive and ugly fold called double chin is a phenomenon that is caused by a layer of subcutaneous fat around the neck that droops down and creates a wrinkle, making the owner appear to have a second chin. However, we, regular folks, are in no way relieved by this scientific explanation: this fold makes our face look ugly, distorts our face shape, and makes us look generally fatter and older than we really are. Interestingly, a double chin is present not only in obese or elderly people, but also in quite slender young people, predominantly women. Fatty crease in the chin area can be blamed on the age-related changes in the body which can be addressed, on the excess of adipose tissue in the body which is easy to get rid of, and finally, on the anatomical features of the face and jaw, which causes a lot of trouble, anxiety, and complexes.

There are a number of choices available to get rid of a double chin. However, exercise for the chin and jaw area of any kind is designed rather to prevent a double chin, than to completely remove it. But if your face shape is changing rapidly and your face is sinking below your waistline due to weight gain, regular exercise can help to bring your old reflection in the mirror back.

    1. Press your chin to your chest tightly. Without moving the chin, rotate your neck slowly in a clockwise direction, and then alternate in an anti-clockwise direction.

    2. After applying body firming cream, slap your chin with the back of your hand for 3 minutes.

    3. Straining your lower jaw, pronounce sounds «o», «e», and «u» for 5-7 minutes.

After exercising, you should apply mineral cold wrap, which will improve blood circulation and provide a lifting effect. To prepare a mineral cold wrap, dilute a tablespoon of sea salt without dyes and flavors in a glass of carbon-dioxide-free mineral water. Wet a towel with this solution, then take it by the ends and slap yourself on the chin. Perform this exercise carefully, easy on the neck, without touching the larynx. Make 15 to 20 repetitions.

If you've gone on a crusade to prevent or remove a double chin, forget about the exercises, when you have to crane your neck, trying to put your chin forward, as far as possible. Such «treatment» is not only ineffective, but harmful as it stimulates stretching of the skin, which soon becomes flabby and sagging, forming a fold, which could only be eliminated by the aesthetic surgeon.

In the «advanced» cases of a double chin, caused by the age-related changes and not treatable with delicate methods, professional help (spa treatments and cosmetic surgery) may be required.

Mesotherapy (safe, non-surgical procedure used for body sculpting, cellulite reduction, and elimination of double chin and eye fat pads) gave birth to mesodissolution, the newest method of removing excess fat on the chin. Hypodermic medication destroys fat cells very quickly, stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin, responsible for the formation of smooth and durable «face framework». To completely eliminate a double chin, up to 10 procedures are recommended.

Other, more traditional spa treatments used to restore skin smoothness, include chin wraps and massage, and in particular manual- and vacuum massage, which provides excellent effect.

Manual massage, performed using specialized skincare products, can reduce or even eliminate this unattractive fold on the chin in 8-10 sessions.

Vacuum massage is more effective and intensive than manual massage. It helps to remove toxins, stimulate local metabolism, tighten skin, and prevent its sagging after the procedure. After you've completed a course of vacuum massage treatments, you need to monitor the condition of your chin area, preventing it from growing back to the pre-treatment size.

The most radical method of getting rid of a double chin is cosmetic surgery. However, it is recommended in case of severe defects, especially in adults, when non-invasive methods may not be effective. This procedure is called submental lipectomy. More usually known as a 'neck lift', the standard procedure can be carried out as an outpatient and involves a small incision under the chin. The extra fat is then sucked out. Lastly, they will make a vertical incision between the layers of the neck and jaw muscle, and stitch the edges together, tapering the muscle layer. It is a moderately painless procedure, and needs only two small bandages to hide. Bruising is negligible, and usually disappears within about ten days. More complex operations may involve surgery on muscles or even chin implants.

But if you really want to lose that chin, start taking better care of yourself. Ensure your diet is high in fibre and low in fat and calories, containing plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. This will help prevent you laying down vast amounts of fat.


From a health perspective, there's nothing dangerous about a double chin unless you are seriously overweight. Even then, the double chin is just a symptom of obesity, not a problem. But harmless or not, we women still find double chins unattractive. Getting rid of a double chin is not all that easy, but it's possible if you try hard enough.
