Why Do I Have a Double Chin When I’m Skinny?

Why Do I Have a Double Chin When I’m Skinny?

You’re pretty happy with your body – and you’ve worked hard to achieve that state. But no matter how much you diet and exercise you incorporate into your life, there’s one part of your body that just won’t budge an inch: your double chin.

If you’ve ever wondered why you have a double chin despite being skinny, read on for our surprising explanation, including what you can do to reduce chin fat once and for all.

Why Skinny People Have Double Chins

If you’re on the skinnier side but you’re still struggling with a double chin, it’s not you – it’s your genetics. 

People are prone to carrying their weight in certain areas of their bodies. Some of us carry extra fat around our waistline, while others instantly gain weight in their thighs. If you have a double chin despite being skinny, your body just happens to genetically store extra fat around the jawline. There’s really nothing unusual about it, but it does present a challenge in that your chin fat is much harder to target through diet and exercise alone.

That’s why you may need a little extra help in the form of Kybella injections.

Kybella for Double Chin Reduction

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that uses the power of deoxycholic acid to effectively “eat away” at fat cells clustered underneath the chin and around the jawline. These damaged fat cells eventually leak and shrink down, leaving behind a much more contoured jawline. Over time, the body’s metabolic processes completely remove some of the damaged fat cells.

The result is a noticeable reduction in chin fat – and all with a series of Kybella injections.

The best candidates for Kybella injections are individuals who have a double chin but already have healthy habits. Kybella works best on people who have good skin laxity, as it cannot treat skin that might sag once chin fat disappears.

Everyone at your practice is so kind and genuine. I’ve always gotten in and out very quickly. Dr. Song is super easy to talk to and I feel like he cares about his patients. Grateful how that he does such great work and also stands by his work. You guys are all amazing and I’m super grateful.
