Double Chin (submental fullness). Have you heard about submental fullness? According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by fullness under the chin (67%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%). In fact, the condition, which can make you look older and heavier than you really are, even has a name. It’s called submental fullness (fullness under the chin or ‘double chin’), and can have a negative psychological impact on patients. Fullness under the chin can impact men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as genetics, weight gain and aging, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
