Double chin at 17

Pictures would really be needed to give you advice as to options for treating your double chin.  In many cases, liposuction of the neck can be done to help with a double chin, but without pictures it's impossible to know if you would be a candidate for that procedure or not.

At your age your skin is likely to be very elastic making you a good candidate for submental liposuction

at your age liposuction under your chin will likely improve the problem you are complaining about.  In the link below are some photos which may help you make a decision.

Liposuction of the Chin

  Sometimes liposuction of the chin and neck areas can make a nice difference in an otherwise thin individual.  However, sometimes the area is not a builidup of fat but due to other anatomical issues not as easily remedied.  Pictures or an exam would be useful.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
