How to Reduce a Double Chin (Without Surgery)

A double chin can seem impossible to get rid of, but getting a more defined jawline doesn’t have to be a troublesome feat. While the internet fills with fast acting exercising and fad diets that claim to get rid of chin fat, our experts at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates have found other alternatives that not only work, but can also positively impact your health. 
Keep reading to learn how to reduce double chin without going through an invasive surgery. 

Find an exercise regime that works for you

Not only does exercise contribute to a healthier lifestyle, it can also be a great way to sharpen your jawline. Finding an exercise regime that works for you (i.e. dancing, kickboxing, yoga, etc.) can help you burn calories which leads to fat loss. While you can’t specifically target fat loss—despite what online exercises may claim—overall fat loss can benefit your entire body, including chin fat. 

Focus on clean eating and a healthy diet

Whenever you consume more calories than you burn (and yes, drinks always count), your body stores the extra energy as fat. While you aren’t growing new fat cells, this does cause the fat cells you have to expand, and you’d be surprised how large they can become. 
You can start slowly by cutting out bad habits such as:

  • Drinking sugary beverages every day
  • Eating fast food regularly 
  • Eating too many processed foods 
  • Excess alcohol consumption

From there, you can begin introducing healthy eating habits. It is always great to add more color to your plate using fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Plus, moderation is key for keeping your caloric consumption at maintenance level rather than over eating, which can lead to fat build up in your body and chin areas. 
However, if you’re struggling with your weight or simply want to get help with building a healthier lifestyle, our wellness coach at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates can help. We also offer multiple weight loss and wellness programs to keep you on track. 

Get a series of Kybella injections for long-term results 

One of the best ways to reduce a double chin is through a Kybella treatment. Kybella is a non-surgical injectable which uses deoxycholic acid, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring chemical found in your digestive tract. The chemical your body produces breaks down and absorbs fat by destroying the cell membrane, which is crucial for digestion. 

So it’s no surprise that when the synthetic version is injected into submental fat, the same breakdown and absorption process takes place. As the deoxycholic acid dissolves fat, it becomes cellular wastes that the body gets rid of once and for all, giving you long-lasting (if not permanent) results.

💡Note: Kybella does not tighten skin; it only helps to get rid of fat. If you have loose skin, you can always combine your injections with a different aesthetic treatment to achieve the full look you’re after.
