Home Cosmetic Surgery Double Chin Reduction Treatment

Double Chin Reduction Treatment

A double chin affects the contour of your jawline and creates an appearance of a secondary chin. This problem is usually caused by the presence of excess fat (submental fullness) or skin sagginess in the neck area. While it may sometimes be a sign of a medical problem, it is often a cosmetic issue that adversely affects your facial aesthetics.

Therefore, the appearance of a double chin can harm your self-esteem, making you feel less confident during social and intimate interactions.

With our state-of-the-art clinical options for double chin reduction in Dubai, you can get a more defined chin and jawline and regain confidence.

What is Double Chin Reduction?

Double chin reduction can help you get rid of the double chin and attain the chin size that best suits your face. It can be a surgical or non-surgical procedure that reduces the size of the double chin and improves its contours. The chin reduction procedure is becoming increasingly popular among people who want to improve their facial appearance.

What Causes A Double Chin?

There are several reasons you may have a double chin.

Weight gain

You are more likely to develop a double chin due to weight gain, as it causes extra fat accumulation in several body areas, including under the chin.

Poor posture

People with posture problems are more susceptible to having a double chin. This is more likely to occur in individuals who keep their chin close to their chest when reading a book or using a mobile phone.


You may have a double chin due to your particular gene. This is because specific genes increase the body’s tendency to hold fat cells and moisture, increasing the risk of developing submental fullness.


Your skin loses its elasticity and starts sagging with age. This can cause the skin under the chin to become loose and develop an appearance as if you have a double chin.

Treatment Options To Reduce A Double Chin

A double chin can be reduced with various surgical and non-surgical treatments. Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic offers the following clinical procedures for effective double chin removal.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can help remove fat from under the chin and around the neck. This procedure is performed through small incisions made in the submental area. The surgeon inserts a probe to break up fat cells and then a suction tube to remove those fat cells through the incisions. This allows them to reduce submental fullness and contour the chin area and jawline.


Your surgeon may perform a facelift to reduce your double chin. It is a surgical procedure that involves making incisions behind the ears or along the hairline and manipulating facial tissues through these incisions. The tissue manipulation may include removing excess skin, tightening facial and neck muscles, or redistributing fat to reduce a double chin and improve facial structure.

This double chin elimination procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, but local anesthesia or sedation may be used in some cases.

Neck lift

A neck lift is similar to a facelift in terms of the way it is performed, i.e., making incisions and manipulating tissues through those incisions. The difference lies in the location of the incisions. A neck lift is performed through incisions behind the ears or under the chin.


Kybella injections are an effective way to reduce submental fat. These FDA-approved injections contain deoxycholic acid that breaks down cells in fatty tissues. Injecting this solution into subcutaneous tissues of the submental area promotes adipose (body fat) lipolysis, which breaks up stubborn fat cells and makes them absorbable by the body.

Even though Kybella injections can take weeks or even months to come into effect, they deliver long-lasting results.

Thread lift

APTOS thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive alternative to a facelift. It involves placing a medical-grade thread under the facial skin using thin needles. This thread is then pulled to adjust the skin to the desired position. This helps treat a double chin and other aesthetic problems caused by sagging facial skin.

Coolsculpting or Cryolipolysis

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive and minimally painful fat-freezing procedure that can significantly reduce submental fullness. It involves using a specialized applicator that delivers controlled cooling to the fatty layer under the skin. This results in the fat cells getting frozen and destroyed. After using the applicator, the provider massages the treated region to break up frozen fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.

Noticeable results of Coolsculpting occur in three weeks, while the intended results are typically achieved in 2-3 months.

However, some people may have to wait longer to get treatment results.


HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, can be effective in treating a double chin. It administers ultrasound energy that travels deep into the subcutaneous region and transforms into heat. This emulsifies and removes fat cells and stimulates collagen production in the skin, prompting an overall tightening effect to reduce the double chin.


Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that delivers ultrasound energy to a particular skin depth to stimulate collagen production, improving the bond within skin fibers. When administered in the submental area, it tightens the skin, reducing sagginess and, thus, the appearance of a double chin.

  • Swelling
  • Bleeding
  • Decreased skin sensitivity
  • Infection
  • Injury to facial nerves
