Am I a Candidate for Double Chin Reduction?

If you have excess submental fullness under your chin, more commonly referred to as “double chin”, then you probably know all too well the negative effect it can have on your confidence level. Maybe you developed this extra fullness over time due to age or fluctuations in weight, or perhaps it’s something you’ve had your whole life thanks to genetics. No matter the reason, there are effective treatment options available – ranging from noninvasive to surgical – that can help contour your chin and leave you with a more pleasingly shaped profile.

To find out if Double Chin Reduction treatment might be an option for you, answer the following questions and a consultant from Atlanta Face & Body will report your results:

Thank you for your time!

 What are the different treatment options available for double chin reduction?

  • SculpSure®SculpSure is a nonsurgical alternative treatment for fat reduction of stubborn areas that resist diet and exercise, such as under the chin. This treatment uses targeted laser energy to heats fat cells under the skin in 25-minute sessions, destroying up to 24% of the cells without affecting the skin’s surface.
  • KYBELLA® – KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment proven to destroy fat cells under the chin to improve your profile without surgery. Treatment is administered as a series of injections to the area under the chin, producing gradual results.
  • Chin Implant Surgery – Double chin isn’t always just about the presence of fat. Sometimes it’s about the structure of the chin itself. If you have a weak chin, then any submental fullness may appear exacerbated. A chin implant tailored specifically to fit the contours of your unique facial structure can provide subtle to dramatic improvement for your profile.
  • Chin Liposuction – To achieve the most dramatic results in reducing the appearance of a double chin, chin liposuction is hands down the best option. The term “liposuction” may conjure images of scraping and vacuuming of fat under the skin, but that isn’t the case. At Atlanta Face & Body, a special laser and minimal incisions are utilized to perfectly target smaller volumes of excess fat under the chin, both breaking up the fat and tightening the loose skin in the process.


As with any medical cosmetic procedure, it’s important to discuss your individual goals with experienced providers before making any decisions – especially if surgery is needed for best results. Elizabeth Whitaker, M.D., F.A.C.S., is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon who is known as the “Queen of Faces” by many of her patients. She has all the knowledge and expertise to reduce your double chin and achieve the most desired outcome.
