Double Chin, SculpSure®️, Medical Alliance of Southern New Jersey

If you look in the mirror or at photos and feel self-conscious about the fact that you seem to have not one but two chins, you’re far from alone. Caused by an extra layer of fat below your chin, a variety of factors can lead to that pesky double chin.

These factors include:

Luckily, there are many steps you can take to create a sleeker profile. While you can’t change your genetic makeup, you can adjust your lifestyle and try nonsurgical SculpSure®️ body contouring.

Eat more fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods

A diet rich in nutrients and low in added sugars, refined grains, and unhealthy fats can boost your overall health while helping you to slim down at the same time.

Nutritious foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains are good sources of fiber, which promote appetite control. Lean protein sources, too, such as fish and low-fat dairy products, can help keep your blood sugar levels in a good place, making overeating less likely.

Exercise more often

If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you’re a lot more likely to carry excess pounds on your body, including your chin area. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s current physical activity guidelines for adults suggests 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity per week.

For weight loss, you may want to increase this to up to 60 minutes per day. Useful activities include brisk walking, jogging, dancing, swimming, and aerobics. Resistance exercises such weight lifting can also help by building muscle, which can play an important role in weight control.
