The Double Chin Dilemma: Dr. Devgan featured on BeachBody.com

There are thousands of people who are self-conscious about the so-called ‘double-chin.’ A double-chin occurs when there is excess fat surrounding the lower third of the face and neck area. When this fat accumulates, it creates the look of a double-chin, especially when looking at a downward angle or from a side profile.

In BeachBody article written by Adam Bible, Dr. Devgan explains the specifics of a double-chin and the different options available for those who seek to reduce it. There are three main ways to address a double chin, or accumulation of excess fat of the neck: Kybella (injection of deoxycholic acid to permanently dissolve fat), submental liposuction (a minimally invasive surgery to suction out excess fat), and surgical neck lift (a larger surgery that addresses excess skin as well as excess fat).

Dr. Devgan explains that “The single most common reason for someone to have a double chin is a genetic predisposition to storing fat in the submentum, or the area under the chin. This means that a person’s age, weight, and physique matter less than his or her genetic tendencies.”

For this reason, many seek the help of a plastic surgeon to solve this issue that may set them back in their daily life. Dr. Devgan states that many men and women come into her practice to learn more about the options that are available, and so many are pleased with the results, whether they choose Kybella injections, submental liposuction, or a surgical neck lift.
