Double Chin Q & A

What causes a double chin?

The double chin, or submental fat, is a common source of grief among men and women. The source of your double chin may be weight related, but it can also surface as a result of aging, which often leads to loose skin under the chin, or it could be simply due to genetics.

Often, even after you lose weight through diet and exercise, your chin fat remains behind.

How can I get rid of chin fat?

At Cocoa Beach Internal Medicine, you can get rid of stubborn chin fat using popular body contouring technology, SculpSure®. SculpSure was approved to treat submental fat, also known as the double chin, in 2017. In addition to removing fat under the chin, it tightens the surrounding skin.

Studies have found that SculpSure submental treatments edge out the competition because they offer short treatment times, dramatic contours, and high satisfaction rates.

How does SculpSure work?

SculpSure works by heating and damaging fat cells with a laser, while leaving your skin untouched. After they’re damaged, the fat cells gradually exit the body via the lymphatic system. Once they’re gone, the same fat cells don’t come back.

Dr. Leyte-Vidal gets rid of fat under your chin using a special SculpSure submental applicator, which emits a lower-than-normal wavelength. The treatment takes about 25 minutes, and when it’s over, you can return to your normal day. The number of sessions you require depends on your desired results.

SculpSure is non-invasive with little to no downtime. To combat any would-be discomfort, as the applicator delivers laser heat, it doles out Advanced Contact Cooling™.

Is submental SculpSure treatment right for me?

The only way to know for sure whether or not SculpSure treatment for a double chin is right for you is by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Leyte-Vidal. He can assess your situation personally and advise you on how to best achieve your desired results. However, in general, SculpSure treatment may be right for you if:

  • You’re healthy
  • Your BMI is steady at 43 or lower

It’s important to remember that, even though SculpSure can tighten skin, it’s designed to destroy fat cells, not fix loose skin. If you want to remove the skin from under your chin, this might not be the best treatment for you.
