Results of a recent survey commissioned by Allergan to better understand the personal impact of submental fullness as well as how others perceive individuals with submental fullness were revealed at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Meeting in Orlando, FL.

“We understand that submental fullness is a common concern,” says David Moatazedi, senior vice president of facial aesthetics at Allergan. “It was important for us to dig deeper to better understand the substantial impact that submental fullness may have on patients’ self-perception and behavior, as well as the perception others may have of individuals with submental fullness.

Gaining a better understanding of how having a double chin plays a role in self-perception and alternatively, how those with submental fullness are viewed by others will help physicians in their daily interactions with these patients.” Allergan surveyed 1,996 men and women in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 65 to better understand how having a double chin plays a role in self-perception and alternatively, how those with submental fullness are viewed by others.

“The results of this survey mimic what I hear from patients on a daily basis – they are bothered by submental fullness and are looking to address the problem,” says Shannon Humphrey, board-certified dermatologist and co-author of the survey.
