What is submental fullness?
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%).
