If you are thinking about having cosmetic surgery to remove your double chin, you should probably consider some alternatives such as exercises and other aids first. The reason is that while these days while it’s fairly routine, cosmetic surgery on any part of your body is by no means risk free. All medical procedures involve risk, especially when a general anesthetic is involved, so it’s a good idea to think about alternatives before you make your final decision.
The fact is there are all kinds of products designed to help you avoid the risk and expense of cosmetic surgery, including various double chin exercises, creams and chin straps. Some of them can be quite effective, while others are pretty much a waste of your time and money. So, how can you tell what’s going to be the best option for you, and which ones are really duds? What is the easiest and fastest way to get rid of a double chin?
Exercises Better Than Creams?
There are a number of specially designed creams on the market that claim to help you reduce the size and appearance of a double chin. Some of them can be effective at firming up the skin around your chin area. But despite what these products claim, for most people it’s really going to take more than applying a simple cream to fix the problem. If you combine a number of exercises (which can give great results) with one of the better creams on the market, you might have much better success. But unfortunately these creams cannot claim to be a “magic bullet”, and on their own are unlikely to give you the best benefits.
Is A Chin Strap Better Than Exercises?
There are a number of specialist devices on the market today that promise results similar to those you can get from cosmetic surgery. Their main claim to fame is they can give you some results while costing significantly less. And some of them have relatively sound science and customer reviews behind them.
But before you decide whether one of these chin-strap devices is better than cosmetic surgery for you, make sure you do your homework and see how believable their results are. In most of the ads, you’™ll see before and after photographs, but these days it’s hard to know whether the results were really achieved without the help of exercises or even double chin surgery.
Exercises & Diet Could Be The Key
While it’s true that for some people, there is a family history of people having a double chin, it’s not a purely genetic problem. The biggest causes are age, diet and exercise related. Knowing this, watching what you eat and performing some regular exercises might be all you need to smooth out your face and reduce or even fix your chin. The main thing to know is that most people really don’t need cosmetic surgery. There are other effective means of getting rid of a double chin available that you can try first, and maybe save yourself a lot of money, potential complications from surgery, and a painful recovery in the process.
