The infamous double chin is a dreaded trait for all genders. A chubby chin can inflict young and old alike, regardless of body weight, gender or fitness levels. Submental fat under the chin is often due to genetics and can be caused by other factors besides general weight gain. A double chin detracts from the definition of the jaw, neck and facial profile, making the face and neck look heavy. Chin liposuction is the solution to redefine your neck and jawline.
Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Lipo?
Those with extra fat under their chin and jawline who are not extremely overweight may benefit from chin lipo. Like most types of liposuction procedures, good candidates for chin liposuction will be healthy and have good skin elasticity. Older individuals who have sagging or looser skin may require liposuction with a neck lift to remove excess skin once the fat is removed.
Chin liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure, but it is minimally-invasive. Small incisions are made to insert the cannulas under the skin into the fatty areas to remove the tissue. This procedure can be performed under local anesthetic for lower risks than other types of surgery. After the procedure, patients will need to recover for several days and wear a compression garment while the area heals.
Natural, Beautiful Results
For those who have a double chin, liposuction can transform their lower face, neck and profile. Removing the submental fat under the chin slims the upper neck and defines the chin and jaw. The male face can look more masculine, and the female face can look fitter and more youthful. There will be an immediate difference after surgery, but it will take a few months for the final results to appear as the jaw and chin become more defined. The incisions heal quickly and are well-hidden for natural, beautiful results.
