The double chin is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat is formed under the chin. It is often associated with weight gain, but someone does not necessarily have to be overweight to have a double chin. Skin laxity that occurs with aging contribute to the creation of this condition.

From a medical point of view, the double chin does not necessarily indicate a disease but it often causes psychological problems to those who bare it as they consider it a problem.

Common causes of double chin

Excess fat

Probably the most common cause of double chin formation is simply a general excess of fat. When you gain weight, the tendency is to see fat being deposited all over the body, and unfortunately this includes the face and under the chin.

And when someone struggles with weight balance, the double chin can be a specific source of low self-esteem. Especially if you think that body fat can be hidden, it can not be hidden in the face!

 Skin Aging

The other most common cause that is often overlooked is simply the effect that age has on our skin. Part of this is just a natural part of aging. Around the mid-20s, the amount of collagen produced by our skin begins to decrease. When this happens, the skin begins to lose its elasticity and begins to break down. The older we get, the less collagen we have.

While skin aging is a natural part of aging, there are a number of factors that can speed up the process. Things like smoking, poor diet and sun exposure can have detrimental effects on our skin health. At the same time, practicing good skin care habits and guiding a generally healthier lifestyle can help prevent the effects of aging.

Poor posture

You’re not going to read this post on a smartphone or laptop right now, are you? Because if you are, that can be part of the problem. When we use these gadgets, we tend to stuff our throats. Adopting this attitude is one of the worst things we could do!

Aside from the possibility of causing neck pain, this posture is bad news for the flat muscle, which connects the neck to the chin. When this muscle weakens, it leads to reduced elasticity around the jaws and the relaxation that occurs with it.

 Facial structure

Some factors associated with double chin are beyond our control.

Main among them are the basic shapes of our faces. Just as certain body types allow some people to gain weight more flatteringly than others, some facial shapes are more forgiving than others, and vice versa.

In particular, people with weak jaws will be more susceptible to a double chin appearance. This is because, the skin is stretched to a smaller area and as it is pulled less tightly over the face, it only takes a relatively small increase in fat or a decrease in skin elasticity to cause a double chin.

This is probably the main reason why some people may be very thin but still develop a double chin.


If you look at your family members and see that many of them tend to be plump, then chances are good that you will be prone to develop a double chin as well.

While there may not be a specific gene for the double chin, any number of traits may make you more likely to get one. Aside from the fact that bone structure is a genetic trait, you could be predisposed to weight gain, with thinner or less elastic skin or more likely to store fat in your chin.
