I have a significant double chin when I look down. What is the best treatment for this?

I’m 5’5 and weigh 105lbs but I have a noticeable double chin when I look down. What is recommend as the best treatment for my case?

Coolsculpting is an excellent treatment for permanently removing fat under the chin, but don’t forget about fat dissolving injections. They are both excellent options, and both have their place in my practice. There are a number of reasons to use one instead of the other. Firstly, do you have enough submental fullness to fit the CoolMini vacuum applicator? If you do not have enough, the applicator may not stay in position during the treatment, and your results may be less than optimal. Although it is difficult to tell from your photo, you may fall into this category. The benefit of CoolMini is that there is less “downtime” than you will experience following fat-dissolving injections The swelling following fat dissolving injections can be quite severe for the first 24-72 hours, although this is actually a good sign that the treatment is having its desired effect. I would recommend a review with an experienced injector and Coolsculpting specialist who can assess you in person (as a two-dimensional photo doesn’t tell the “full 3-D story” of your face), discuss your goals, and formulate a treatment plan. I would also suggest a review at a clinic where both Coolsculpting and fat-dissolving injections are available, so you get an unbiased opinion!
