Get Rid of Your Double Chin With This Simple Treatment

A chubby chin might be cute on a baby, but on an adult, under-chin fat can instantly add pounds to your appearance, not to mention make you look older than you want. 

There was a time when the only way to get rid of a double chin was to have liposuction surgery. But today, noninvasive SculpSure® provides a safe, effective alternative.

At Women's Pavilion of the Palm Beaches, Leroy Charles, MD, uses the state-of-the-art SculpSure system to provide custom double-chin treatments for patients in and around Greenacres, Florida. SculpSure works without incisions or anesthesia, and there’s no downtime, either. 

Here’s how it can help you get rid of your double chin.

Getting rid of under-chin fat

Double chins are one of the biggest cosmetic concerns for both women and men. In fact, a recent survey from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found about three-quarters of people surveyed were bothered by their under-chin fat. 

Here’s the thing about double chins: They can show up on anybody — even people who are otherwise slim and toned. 

Yes, weight gain can show up under your chin, just like in most other parts of your body. But a double chin can also come from aging, hormonal changes, or even your own genetics (thanks, Mom and Dad). 

Worse, there aren’t any really good exercises you can do to slim down the submental area. That’s why, for so many years, people have turned to liposuction to get rid of excess flab under the chin.

But while liposuction can be effective at getting rid of submental fat, it’s not for everyone. Liposuction is still an invasive procedure, and it can leave you with bruising, swelling, and of course, an incision that can turn into a scar. Like other invasive procedures, liposuction carries certain risks, and it requires a recovery period. And, yes, it’s costly.

The good news: SculpSure can give you the slimmer, sleeker contours you’re looking for without surgery, incisions, scars, or downtime. Each treatment takes about 25 minutes, and most patients see the results they want in just two sessions, spaced a few weeks apart.

How SculpSure works

SculpSure has been approved to treat fat in other areas of the body for years. In 2017, the FDA gave the device its stamp of approval for treating submental fat too. Since then, it’s become one of the most popular choices for both women and men looking to get rid of their double chins.

The SculpSure device works by gently heating up fat cells, essentially “melting” fat away without harming the skin or the structures around the fat. The targeted heat delivery system allows Dr. Charles to customize your treatment, so you get precise, smooth results tailored to your treatment goals. 

The SculpSure device can be adjusted to suit people with narrow chin structures, as well as patients with a higher body mass index. Plus, the gentle heating action helps tighten and tone loose skin, so your new contours look trim and sleek.
