CoolSculpting: The Chin Fat Solution Dr. Tang Trusts

Posted by August 15th, 2021 in Face

Stubborn fat in the chin area is the bane of anyone hoping to attain a sexier figure. Thankfully, technologies now exist that can address such issues. CoolSculpting for the neck, for instance, is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical procedure capable of contouring your body to help you achieve a slimmer, toned look.

If you are have a “double chin,” chin fat adds a flabby bulge around your neck and makes the neck skin looser. Before we discuss how CoolSculpting for the neck can solve these issues, however, it helps to understand some basic facts about neck fat.

Chin fat: the causes

Lack of exercise and a poor diet will add extra pounds to various parts of your body, including the face, chin, and neck. In short, neck fat is often caused by weight gain. If you’re overweight or obese, you’re far more likely to have a fat neck.

However, chin fat can also be caused by certain conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome, which occurs when the body has an excess of the hormone cortisol for an extended period of time. This condition is known to deposit extra fat in the neck and shoulders.

Chin fat can also be caused by genetics.

Note that not all thick necks are fat. A neck that’s grown muscular due to strength training, for example, is also thick, but feels firm and looks toned.

CoolSculpting the Chin

CoolSculpting the chin involves the use of a device to administer precision-controlled cooling to pockets of unwanted fat. Depending on the size of the area and the desired results, several applications may be performed in one session.

This cooling crystallizes the fat cells, which gradually die off to then be naturally eliminated by the body. In the weeks and months following your treatment, the surviving fat cells condense, which reduces the fat layer to make the target area slimmer and firmer.

Because CoolSculpting for the chin uses cooling technology to achieve desired results, it reduces fat without surgery. You’ll need little to no recovery time after the procedure; side effects, if any, are often mild and temporary. CoolSculpting also doesn’t result in scarring.

CoolSculpting for the chin destroys fat cells, so its results are permanent. You’ll need to observe an active and healthy lifestyle, however, to prevent the remaining fat cells from growing.

It’s also important to note that the treatment isn’t a magic weight loss solution. You’ll need to be within 1 to 20 pounds of your target weight to be a good candidate for the procedure.
