Lots of us hate being photographed, as photo’s can really show off our double chin. Having a double chin doesn’t always mean you are overweight, it can also mean that the muscles in the chin and neck aren’t as developed as they could be.
If there’s anything that shows the creeping effects of ageing, it’s the looser skin on your jaw line and neck, resulting in a double chin or the dreaded jowls. This can cause embarrassment and distress, and might be a sign that you should change your diet. It’s possible to reduce and even eradicate fat in the chin area with a healthy, low-fat, nutritious diet and regular exercise, or maybe if all else fails, cosmetic treatment could be the answer.
Fat is often stored under your chin if you are overweight, although other causes include age and genetics. Just because you have a double chin doesn’t necessarily mean you’re old, and it also doesn’t have to mean that you’re overweight. But, whatever the cause is, it can totally take away the beauty of a face.
There are three things that determine a double chin;
You might be genetically predisposed to having a double chin. Your genetics influence the muscle and bone structure and fat deposit characteristics of your face. Some people get water retention in the chin area, and others naturally store excess fat.
Your age can also determine whether you may, or may not develop a double chin. The older we get, the more the skin thins and becomes less elastic causing the muscles to lose their tone, which creates a sagging droopy look.
Excess body fat is also a cause. Your body stores fat in different places and every part of the body is fair game when it comes to fat storage. It’s almost impossible to lose fat from just one place, so if you need to lose fat from your chin, you must lose fat from all over.
If diet and exercise just won’t get rid of it, then vaser lipo is a great way to get rid of the fat from under the chin. It’s a straightforward procedure that gives fabulous results. After a local anaesthetic numbs the area, the vaser melts and liquefies the fat cells, which then get suctioned out through thin probes. Vaser lipo is not a method to lose weight or an alternative to diet and exercise but a form of body contouring, which sculpts the body to get the desired look.
