Sometimes, even while maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle, excess fat in the chin and neck area can leave many men feeling that they don’t look as energized and youthful as they truly feel. And because a double chin is frequently related to genetics, it can be nearly impossible to eliminate. There are a number of treatments that can help improve the contours of the face, resulting in a stronger, more masculine jawline.

Many men struggle with removing excess fat in the submental area, the spot where the neck and chin meet, because this layer of subcutaneous fat often refuses to respond well to diet and exercise alone. Depending on your preferences, there are a few double chin treatment options that you can consider:
Kybella® is a nonsurgical double chin treatment that works by injecting a product that mimics the deoxycholic acid that’s naturally present in the body to help metabolize fat cells. When the target area is treated with Kybella®, the fat cells there are destroyed and will be naturally expelled from the body. Although more than one treatment session may be required to maximize your results, each injection typically takes less than 20 minutes.
Similarly, CoolSculpting® is a popular nonsurgical double chin treatment that can give men a more chiseled and structured chin and jawline. It works by freezing fat cells in the targeted area, which the body’s metabolism then processes and eliminates. Most men see noticeable results after just 1 or 2 one-hour sessions, though the number of CoolSculpting® treatments necessary to meet your individual goals may vary.
For a more comprehensive treatment, some men opt for submental liposuction, which targets the area underneath the chin. During this surgical procedure, suction is used to carefully remove the excess fat in the chin and neck areas, resulting in a firmer, more toned jaw structure.
Depending on the method of double chin treatment that’s best for you, your recovery may vary. Immediately following nonsurgical options like Kybella® and CoolSculpting®, most men can return to their normal activities. With each of these treatments, some minor swelling and redness may occur, but these symptoms typically fade on their own within the next few days.
Most men begin to notice their Kybella® results within 4 to 6 weeks following their last treatment, and it’s generally recommended to complete 2 to 6 sessions to achieve maximum results. Those who opt for CoolSculpting® often see their final results within 2 to 3 months following their last treatment session, and depending on your specific situation, up to 3 CoolSculpting® sessions may provide the best outcome.
Although submental liposuction is a relatively short procedure, it may require a longer recovery period than nonsurgical options. However, double chin liposuction can offer dramatic results that can leave you looking and feeling confident and ready to take on the challenges of today’s competitive workforce.
