Double Chin Treatment


What is turkey neck (double chin)?

Excess fat or excess skin laxity under the chin may cause the double chin. This extra tissue produces a shadowing effect and makes people look fatter and older by changing their natural profile shape. This problem affects both men and women equally. However, men tend to suffer more, particularly because they are wearing buttoned-up shirt collars with ties, and sometimes, that extra tissue causes them to purchase a size up in clothes, which affects their confidence level and sense of style. Wearing tight ties around their necks causes discomfort and many men choose to loosen them or simply take them off and that just makes them look very sloppy and unprofessional. In this highly competitive job market, we all need to look representable and to exhume confidence, in order to advance in the career ladder.


What factors contribute to turkey neck (double chin)?

Hereditary factors, excessive calorie intake, or simply skin aging and loss of elasticity.
