Body Fat and Double Chin
What is it?
Common areas of body fat that appear like disproportionate bulges such as “love handles”, “spare tire”, tummy pouch, back fat, saddlebags or inner thigh fat can be bothersome to many patients. These stubborn areas can be resistant to diet and exercise, and is sometimes just a genetic predisposition.
Double-chin fat is typically genetic trait, so even very young or healthy weight patients can have a bothersome double-chin. Now there are two great non-surgical options for reducing the double chin fat.
