Basic information about the chin region

Our chin has a major influence on our charisma. It also influences a person's attractiveness.

This applies equally to women and men:

  • An aesthetic chin line can emphasise feminine beauty
  • In men, on the other hand, a prominent chin symbolises strength and assertiveness

If the way you look does not match the way you feel, this can be quite stressful for those affected. If a double chin also develops, this can have an unaesthetic effect. In addition to the psychological aspect, those affected often also suffer from physical effects (e.g. increased sweating in the chin area).

How does a double chin develop?

A double chin is excess tissue below the chin. In addition to the usually above-average accumulation of fat, excess skin tissue can also be responsible for the formation of a double chin.

Excess skin tissue is usually the result of the natural ageing process or severe weight loss. In most cases, excess fatty tissue is caused by increased energy intake through diet.

Therefore the following main reasons for the development of a double chin:

  • Overweight
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Sagging skin due to the ageing process
  • unhealthy diet
  • severe weight loss

How do you get rid of a double chin?

There are various options for treating a double chin.

If the cause is obesity, this should be tackled first with the right diet and exercise. In many cases, the double chin also partially disappears through regular exercise and dietary measures.

If the fat pads do not regress or if excess skin is responsible for the formation, surgical options or minimally invasive treatments can bring the desired success.

What methods are there for treating a double chin?

We offer the following methods for removing a double chin:

Injection lipolysis (fat removal injection)

Injection lipolysis (also known as fat removal injection) is only suitable for smaller fat deposits. A special medication is injected into the affected fat deposits. 


The most common method of removing a double chin is liposuction (also known as liposuction). A tumescent solution is injected into the affected area with a needle to loosen the fat cells. The excess fatty tissue is then sucked out of the body with a special and very fine cannula and the problem area is permanently removed.

Skin tightening in the chin area

If the cause of your double chin is excess skin or if the fat deposit to be removed is relatively large, it may be necessary to remove the excess skin tissue. The removal is carried out through a small incision, which can often be performed under local anaesthetic. For more extensive chin lifts, a general anaesthetic and a stay in hospital may be necessary.
