View treatments

A double chin, medically known as submental fat, refers to the layer of fat that accumulates beneath the chin, causing a noticeable sagging or drooping appearance. It affects people of all ages and body types, often influencing self-esteem and body image perception.

 

The presence of a double chin can significantly impact a person’s appearance, contributing to a heavier or older look. It may obscure the jawline and neck contours, creating a less defined facial profile. Individuals with a double chin may feel self-conscious about their appearance, leading to decreased confidence and reluctance to be photographed or seen from certain angles.

 

Several factors contribute to the development of a double chin. Genetics play a significant role, as some individuals may inherit predispositions to storing excess fat in the submental area. Aging also contributes, as skin elasticity decreases over time, allowing fat deposits to become more apparent. Weight gain, poor posture, and lifestyle habits such as a sedentary lifestyle or unhealthy diet can exacerbate the accumulation of submental fat. Additionally, hormonal changes, certain medical conditions like hypothyroidism, and medications may influence fat distribution and contribute to the development of a double chin.

 

The presence of a double chin can vary in severity, ranging from mild to pronounced, depending on individual factors such as genetics, age, and lifestyle. While it is primarily a cosmetic concern, some individuals may also experience associated discomfort or difficulty with neck movement due to the excess weight in the submental area.

At Ambra Clinic we take a personalised approach to improving the appearance of a double chin, offering FaceTite, Rf skin tightening and fat dissolving injections as safe and effective solutions.

 

FaceTite and RF skin tightening utilise radiofrequency energy to heat the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen production and tightening lax tissues, resulting in improved jawline definition and reduced sagging under the chin. Fat dissolving injections target and break down submental fat cells, leading to a slimmer chin profile. Combining these treatments can provide comprehensive results, addressing both excess fat and skin laxity for a more sculpted and youthful appearance in the chin and neck area.

I went to see Dr McMillan for the first time about a year ago so she could revise some badly done under eye filler NOT DONE BY DR MCMILLAN, and she’s done the most fantastic job i had terrible anxiety from the previous injector and was very nervous, I did so much research but decided to go ahead with Dr McMillan as she was so reassuring and honest with it all

I would highly recommend Maryam and her team at Ambra Aesthetic clinic, my husband had dental treatment with straightening and whitening of his teeth and the results are amazing. I have also had various treatments and we are both very pleased with the service, kindness shown and professionalism. Thank you Ambra. See you soon.

Ambra Aesthetics are the place to go to for professional, friendly service. You don’t need to go to Harley Street. Dr M and her team are all experts and really take care of you giving the best treatments and advice. Sam on the front desk is a dream. In lots of places the staff can look scary from doing too much but Ambra you can tell it’s all about discrete subtle tweakments. . Don’t hesitate to go!
