I've found that some people are simply lacking muscle tone in the muscles of the front of the neck and under the jaw and that when they strengthen them it will cause them to be significantly less saggy and reduce the appearance of a double chin. This is different than the false concept of spot reducing. In the case of someone who's lean and still has a double chin some good portion of the time it's loose muscles rather than loose skin that's responsible . The goal isn't to reduce fat but to firm up those slack muscles. Since the OP stated that they were slim and had always had a double chin I think there's a decent chance it might make a noticeable difference.Neck exercises to get rid of a double chin are like trying sit-ups to get rid of a beer gut.
You might get better muscles, but they'll still be covered with flab and loose skin...
You don't have to put on huge amounts of muscle, you just have to do enough work to strengthen muscles that are in a state of disuse atrophy so that they can do their job. I've never used neck exercises with a client with a goal of changing their appearance but it has had the effect more than once. I've been surprised that even a number of rather over fat individuals have had a substantial reduction in the appearance of a double chin after making only modest strength gains.Considering a muscular neck will pull your skin and tighten your skin, it might do work against a double chin...but you will need a sick neck for that.
Feel free to provide a better idea for the OP though.
Oh, I think I misunderstood your use of the word "sick". The generation younger than me uses "sick" as a slang term to mean really great, or impressive. I had assumed (I'm now guessing incorrectly) that you were saying someone would need to develop a very impressive set of neck muscles to have an impact. If on the other hand you meant that they would need to have some dysfunction in their neck muscles for exercise to have an impact on a double chin we're on the same page.So what is wrong about my advise about exercising your neck ?
Yes, although training is needed.
If you are truly slim, the condition doesn't run in your family, and you have tried exercise then I suggest you see your doctor to rule out any potential anomalies. If all the former boxes have been checked the decision making process should be clearer and easier.Been slim all my life, however this double chin of mine has been bothering me.
Does anyone have any advice as to how to lose this unwanted double chin thing?
