Chin Fat is otherwise known as “double chin,” submental fat, or if it’s really severe “turkey neck” or “gobbler.” This is the fat in the area under the chin and can extend outward to be below the jawbone. It is commonly found in three situations: 1) you inherited excess fat from your family, 2) being overweight, and 3) the fat may seem to show up as you age.
When you inherit more fat cells in this area, you are stuck because you cannot spot reduce or selectively lose more weight in this area. Chin fat is a very common genetic trait and you can usually clearly identify other family members who have it too. Likewise, as you age, you may notice the area under the chin seems to have more fat which then begins to pull on the skin so it hangs. Sometimes a patient will refer to this as a “waddle.” No matter what the cause, the great news is you have both surgical and non-surgical options, which are both quick, simple, and give lasting results!
Dr. Kramer introduced me to Kybella and I am so happy she did! I am finally double-chin free!
Dr. Kramer understood the battle I had with my “turkey neck” my whole life. I always felt so self-conscious. I finally had liposuction done under my chin and I look amazing!! I love who I see in the mirror now thanks to Dr. Kramer!
Dr. Kramer listened to what bothered me about my chin fat. She was understanding and gave me all the options and information I needed to make the best decision for me. For years I thought I was stuck with this fat, but Dr. Kramer took it all away. I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life! Thank you Dr. Kramer!
