What Are Non-Surgical Options for Getting Rid of a Double Chin?
If you eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise, you might be perplexed by your double chin. Why isn’t it responding to all your hard work? How can you spot-treat your face so that your double chin disappears?
Unfortunately, a double chin isn’t always responsive to diet and exercise. Some individuals are genetically predisposed to have excess submental fat, which is located right around the jawline and underneath the chin. Others may be victim to the aging process, where facial fat pads start to break down and travel south as a result of gravity’s pull.
CoolSculpting: CoolSculpting uses FDA-approved technology to deliver freezing energy deep underneath the dermis. This freezing energy targets and crystallizes fat cells, which are later removed by the body’s metabolic processes. CoolSculpting Mini is specifically designed to target excess chin fat.
Kybella: Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that uses deoxycholic acid to target fat cells located within the submental tissue. Once these fat cells are broken down, the body naturally removes them over a period of eight to 12 weeks. Most patients only need about one or two Kybella injections to see a significant reduction in their double chin.
Ultherapy: Ultherapy is another FDA-approved treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten the skin and boost natural collagen production. If your double chin is a result of excess skin or drooping jowls, Ultherapy might be the most effective solution for you.
All of these non-surgical options can help you contour your jawline without requiring extensive downtime or recovery. El Paso Cosmetic Surgery offers all these treatments and combinations tailored to the patient’s needs. Your plastic surgeon will help you determine how many sessions of each treatment you might need to see ideal results.

My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
