How Do I Get Rid of My Double Chin?

Jeffrey Kenkel, MD

Question: I am interested in getting rid of my double chin. What can I do to improve this?

Answer:  As with anything the most important thing we do at a consultation is to analyze the area and determine the cause of your “double chin”.

Most commonly it is due to fat in the area.   Other less common causes may be loose skin,  muscle or even glands.

Liposuction can be performed in the area through 3 small tiny incisions. This procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia.  Patients may have some mild swelling but presentable within a few days.

Both are good options to improve the fat underneath the chin.
