Excessive submental fat—more commonly known as a double chin—is an excess of fat stored under the chin, which can result in a fuller face that can sometimes make you look older or overweight. This can be a point of concern for men and women everywhere. In fact, 67%* of people who have excess fat under their chin find it to be bothersome.
A number of contributing factors cause a double chin. Primarily, as we age, our skin loses elasticity, leading to the appearance of sagging skin, particularly evident below the chin and neck. Weight gain is another influencing factor: Our face is not spared from gaining body fat. Finally, hereditary circumstances can play a role as some people are genetically predisposed to retaining water, which can give way to a fuller-looking chin. While exercise and healthy dietary habits are preventative measures, these are sometimes ineffective at reducing the appearance of a double chin.
