The appearance of a double chin can affect not only your self-confidence; it can subtly influence others’ perception of your age and attractiveness. A sagging double chin can create an overall drooping appearance to the face, causing a person to look older or sad, or both. And even if others don’t seem to notice that submental fullness, you do. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can help you address that unwanted fullness.

If extra fat under your chin is weighing down your face, you may be a candidate for a new injectable, Kybella. Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing mild to moderate fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule that helps dissolve fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact.

Some people develop a double chin at a very early age, and others develop one with weight gain.

Here are the most common causes of submental fullness.

  • Weight Gain – even a modest amount of weight gain can show in your face (and under your chin).
  • Genetics – yes, submental fullness can be part of your DNA, a genetic trait that runs in families.
  • Aging –the natural aging process shifts adipose tissue in the face and neck areas; supportive tissues become flaccid.
  • Both Sexes – submental fullness affects both men and women at any age.
