Under-the-chin sagging



Recommended Posts

This may sound like a stupid question, or perhaps a vain question, but I'm concerned about the saggy skin under my chin on my neck. Will losing a lot of weight make it look better--or worse??? I'm thinking maybe removing the fat will make the sagging disappear? OR...maybe removing the fat will make it even saggier. I'm really not losing sleep at night over this but...I'm just curious. : )

Mine is sagging some but it seems to be tightening up.

I have been doing more neck stretches. I swim and do Water aerobics and have been spending more time stretching during my cool down lately.

I also occasionally do a neck exercise where I look up and make kissing motions (kiss the sky).

I posted a link not very long ago to some face and neck exercises. I think it may come up if you search "face yoga".

Totally understand the concern, it was a big one for me too. I'm sure it does sound really vain of me but I have always loved that people always think I'm 10-15 years younger then I actually am and I know it's because of my "baby face". I have been afraid, since before surgery, that losing weight (especially that lil extra under my chin) would lead to sag and wrinkles and well, would make me look my age.

I have been doing "neck exercises" (look up toward the sky and pout your lips....you can feel it tighten in your chin and neck, hold for 5 seconds, repeat) and I use Palmers cocoa butter lotion twice a day. I might be nuts but it seems like things are firming up a bit. Either way, I am getting so may "you look so good!"s that I guess it can't be all bad. Even if I look more my age now! :P
