A double chin is an imperfection which troubles many people.
Excessive fullness around the chin and the neck gives the impression of a second chin with loss of definition of the jaw line, and it can be very ageing.

Causes of double-chins

Double chins can be genetic, linked to ageing or weight gain.
Many factors need to be considered in their treatment :
– Skin, the sagging of the skin.
– Muscles ,muscle weakness and muscular flaccidity, notably in the platysmal muscle.
– Fat and excessive adipose tissues.
– Bones, notably the hypoprojection of the chin or ‘weak chin’.
– The sub-mandible salivary gland. This often droops and is rarely hypertrophic.
