Hi my name is Tanya Batts , I'm a personal trainer at Gold's Gym. How to get rid of a double chin without surgery. The things you will need for this are: a mat, and some space. What happens when you get a double chin, it can sometimes be related to just the weak muscles and strength of all the muscles underneath the chin and in the neck. I'm going to show you two exercises that are going to help you strengthen and kind of maybe lengthen those muscles. I'm going to sit tall, so take your bottom jaw and just kind of send the bottom jaw in front of the top. So your top, your bottom teeth are going to be in front of your top teeth. When you do that I want you to look all the way up and then slowly drop your chin like three inches 20 times. So that's getting it kind of stronger and it's stretching it as well. Another one you can do kind of take both hands or even one. Going to put my hands right underneath my chin and I am going to push down on my chin. So what that's doing is strengthening all these muscles in the neck. There's like a sternohyoid, sternocleidomastoid and the platysma muscle which is right here. It's going to strengthen those muscles underneath the chin. So it's kind of a strange move and something a lot of people don't think about but it's something that's really going to help you not get that double chin. I mean you might want to consider a diet. You might..if you lose some weight the double chin might be reduced as well. But again I am just strengthening the muscles and you want to do that like 20 times and as well as looking up and lowering down but the bottom chin has got to be in front of the teeth. Perfect. That's just a few exercises you can do that can help reduce that double chin.
