What is submental fullness?

 In

Patients asking about their submental fullness may, at times, refer to it as their “double chin.”

It is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can:

  • Detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance
  • Lead to an older and heavier look
  • Impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men
  • Be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain

According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of consumers are bothered by submental fullness—nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%).
