A double chin; a source of embarrassment and distress for many. Prevalent in overweight individuals, the double chin can also be seen in otherwise healthy individuals, although not as common. Factors other than excessive fat that may lead to the formation of a double chin are age and genetics.
A double chin forms when a subcutaneous layer of fat around your neck sags, resulting in a conspicuous wrinkle. Some individuals suffer from a hereditary predisposition to them. Other families naturally retain more water in the chin area, while others naturally store excess fat.
As you age, you lose muscle. This is known as Sarcopenia. The muscles in your chin also weaken leading to the skin in the area growing looser.
The major cause of double chins is an excessive store of body fat. Discounting age and genetics, overweight individuals have the highest probability of suffering from this embarrassing condition.
