The emergence of smartphones has made us a very snap happy population, and it has been both a blessing and a curse, that every life event is now fully documented. We’re more critical than ever, making a regular occurrence of scanning through pictures and recoiling at some of the images as candid shots have caught a least favourable angle, our double chin.
It is maybe because of these candid shots or maybe because as a population we are living longer and want to preserve our looks for as long as possible that neck fat removal has become an increasingly popular treatment.
Causes of neck fat
If you are thinking of seeking treatment for neck fat removal you may be interested in the causes behind the pesky adipose tissue that causes the double chin or a turkey neck. When most people view their double chin in the mirror most assume it is a sign of weight gain or obesity, but that is not always the case. A double chin can be caused by a number of factors, including age, diet, and genetics.
Age – Our skin can start to lose its elasticity as we age, this can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin.
Diet and weight – Although as previously stated weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can contribute to it. A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin as well. If we have a large volume of fat cells deposited under the chin area as we gain weight they will also naturally expand.
Genetics– Genes may be playing a role if you develop a double chin. Anyone with a family history of skin with poor elasticity or double chins might be more likely to develop one themselves.
Posture – Poor posture can weaken the muscles of the neck and chin which may in time contribute to a double chin, as the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when the muscles are not used.
Get Rid Of Your Double Chin
While a quick Google search may refer you to neck exercises at one end of the spectrum and surgical procedures at the other, there is now an in-between; a non-surgical neck fat removal solution, CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting uses cooling technology to target and freeze fat cells, which are disposed of via the body’s natural processes, leading to a localised reduction in fat.
