Double chin treatment options

What causes a double chin?

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin.

 

While a double chin is often associated as a sign of being overweight or obese, there are many other factors that can contribute to this type of concern; including but not limited to genetics or health issues.

 

A few different factors may contribute to create a double chin. Understanding these may help with understanding ways to get rid of the problem.

 

  • Age

 

The skin can start to lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin.

 

  • Diet and weight

 

A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin.

 

  • Genetics

 

Some people are genetically predisposed to a double chin, meaning they have a family history of skin with little elasticity.

 

  • Posture

 

Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the neck and chin over time.

 

Some health problems that may cause double chin as well:

 

  • Thyroid issues

 

Some people may develop double chin due to the poor working of the thyroid glands.

 

  • Sinus infections

 

Chronic sinusitis can cause the lymph nodes to swell because of the inflammation.

 

  • Kidney disorders

 

Any disorder in the kidney area may also cause a double chin like appearance.

 

  • Cushing’s Syndrome

 

This health condition is caused by having high cortisol for long periods of time. 

 

  • Salivary gland inflammation

 

Through infection and inflammation of the salivary glands, the jaw and facial area can also swell.

 

Whatever the reason, now you want a fix.
