How to Lose Chin Fat

Can you or can’t you diet and exercise away chin fat? Opinions vary. Certainly, losing weight can help decrease or eradicate a double chin, but what about exercise. Or surgery? Or ultrasound treatments?

Many experts say the only way to lose chin fat is through weight loss or through surgical or other medical procedures, because it’s nearly impossible to exercise the chin area. They’re right about losing chin fat via these methods, but wrong about exercising the chin and adjacent areas of the face. In fact, if you want to get both the chin fat and tighten up the sags left behind, you need to lose weight and exercise the muscles around your chin.

Odds are if you have a double chin, you have excess weight on the rest of your body that you need to take off. Start with a healthy diet low in calories and fat, and an aerobic exercise program designed to burn calories and fat. Getting down to your recommended weight will get rid of the fat that fills out your double chin, but, especially in middle-aged and older people, the double chin isn’t completely gone because the area under the chin is left “holding the bag,” so to speak. Short of having a chin lift, you may not be able to get rid of the sagging skin, but by toning the muscles in the area, you can tighten the area under your chin.

It’s not been medically or scientifically proven that chin and jaw exercises help eliminate fat from the targeted areas, but neither has it been disproved. If you go to almost any of the weight loss forums, you’ll find many posts about losing a double chin and tightening the area with simple exercises. All these testimonies of positive results must count for something. >/p
