Double Chin

Condition Overview

What Is A Double Chin?

A double chin, medically known as submental fat, refers to the layer of excess fat that accumulates beneath the chin, creating a noticeable bulge or fold. This condition can significantly impact one’s appearance, often leading to self-consciousness and a desire for aesthetic improvement.

How Does A Double Chin Impact One’s Appearance?

The aesthetic impact of this concern can be profound. Individuals with this condition may perceive it as a sign of ageing or excess weight, affecting their self-esteem and body image. Furthermore, a double chin can create an illusion of heaviness and detract from facial contours, altering the overall harmony of facial features.

Why Do People Develop A Double Chin?

The primary cause of a double chin is the accumulation of excess fat deposits in the submental region. While genetics and natural ageing can play a role in predisposing individuals to store fat in this area, several lifestyle factors contribute to the development of under-chin fat, including weight gain. Additionally, having a naturally weak or receding chin exposes more of skin around the neck, giving the appearance of a double chin. As people age, the skin loses elasticity, and muscles may weaken, exacerbating the appearance of this concern. What’s more, weight gain can lead to an increase in overall body fat, including the submental area.

What Treatments At Novo Skin Clinics Can Reduce A Double Chin?

Various non-surgical and surgical options are available to address a double chin. At NOVO we provide a range of anti-ageing treatments that can lift and tighten the skin, especially around the lower face and jawline. Treatments including PDO Thread Lift, chin and jawline sculpting with dermal fillers and skin boosters can work to firm the skin and noticeably reduce the amount of exposed skin beneath the chin and around the neck.

What Can I Do To Help Prevent A Double Chin?

Prevention and management of under-chin fat often involve a combination of healthy lifestyle practices. Maintaining a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, and adopting good posture can contribute to weight management and muscle tone, reducing the likelihood of developing or exacerbating a double chin.

Blow Media have just launched our brand swanky new website and, excuse the pun, we are blown away. Scott, Ross and Rik nailed the brief we gave them and have gone above and beyond to produce a cracking website. It was also excellent value for money! The team were responsive throughout and were understanding and cool about last minute changes and design tweaking. I couldn't recommend them highly enough!

Best Website Design Agency in Berkshire in my view, perhaps the best in the UK. Have built 5 websites with them for clients in London, Leamington and Berkshire and every-time they knock it out the park.

This is an example of what our target clients are saying...“I have just looked at your new website….It does look amazing!!!! Very fresh, modern, vibrant and clear and simple to navigate. :)”. Exactly what we want - Scott and his team have delivered against the brief for our new website. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have worked with Blowmedia closely to build two websites. I am not a very techy person and was daunted by the whole process, Scott explained everything to me in a way I could understand, always at the end of the phone or contactable by email and the whole process dealing with him and his team was easy and painless. The website is very professional and easy to navigate and has instantly from being launched started to attract new patients. I would highly recommend Scott and the Blowmedia's team to build any website.

I initially spoke to a member of Blow Media's team at a trade show and was very impressed with what they had to offer and with the websites they had already built which I was able to look at on my phone as I queued up to speak to somebody. The initial meeting was followed up very promptly that following week with an email and a fully detailed proposal of what they could offer which was very easy to follow, explaining fully all their services and a breakdown of their costs. I had already researched web designers thoroughly and soon realised that Blow Media, from my initial meeting and early correspondance, was the company I was going to use. From day one they were very proactive and led the whole process. Scott the MD came to see us and very quickly fully understood and visualised what we wanted to achieve perfectly. He also recommended a content writer, an SEO company, a company to do some filming in the clinic and a photographer. We used all his contacts other than the photographer which we decided to try and do ourselves but have since decided to use the photographer Blow Media initially recommended as my photography was the only thing I could criticise about my website. I would highly recommend Blow Media and their whole team, I have already instructed them to start work on our second website as our first website is already delivering and the clinic has never been busier.

Blow Media built our first website back in 2011. They worked closely with us and were able to deliver an outstanding, well presented website that enabled us to get found on search engines. After our business continued to grow we commissioned a second website in 2014 and then our third website was built in 2018. Our experience from start to finish has been fantastic With a special mention for Tracy and Scott who always make the process a joy. I would highly recommend the team and have many times already!
