Submental Fat (Double Chin)

What is Submental Fat?

Submental fat (also known as a double chin) happens when excessive fat accumulates in the area underneath the chin. This issue can be compounded by sagging skin under the chin and on the neck. Submental fat can cause poor self-confidence and self-esteem because of the appearance it gives the facial profile.

Causes of Submental Fat

Many factors can impact the development of submental fat, including:

  • Genetics
  • Weight gain
  • Loss of skin elasticity due to weight loss
  • Aging
