When there is excess fat under your chin, it affects your face and neck appearance. The infamous “double chin” can occur for many reasons, from genetics and weight gain to hormonal imbalances and aging. People of all ages, genders, sizes and fitness levels can experience excess submental fat under the chin – diet and exercise are not effective at targeted fat loss. If you have a double chin and want it gone, LM Medical NYC in Manhattan offers effective chin liposuction to reshape your chin and neck.
Submental fat that makes up the double chin is the superficial fat layer under the skin on the underside of the chin and upper neck. This undesirable excess fat hides the shape of the chin and definition of the jaw and neck. Even thin people can have a double chin due to genetics, medications or other factors, making their face look rounder and detracting from their profile and neck shape. Chin liposuction is a permanent solution to submental chin fat to restore a slimmer and more defined chin and neck appearance.
Get Rid of Your Double Chin!
Good candidates for chin liposuction are healthy individuals that are height-weight proportionate with good skin elasticity. Liposuction only removes the fat cells; it does not remove any loose or excess skin. Those who are overweight may have deeper layers of fat on the neck that cannot be removed with chin liposuction. Older individuals with looser skin may need to pair chin liposuction with a neck lift to achieve the desired results. Some patients with a weak or recessed chin and submental chin fat may benefit from a chin implant combined with liposuction to achieve a chiseled or defined jawline.
Chin liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that requires small incisions to insert a cannula under the skin to remove the superficial fat. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area, and there is no pain during the procedure. The fat cells are removed from the area to permanently slim the neck and under the chin. Most patients will need to rest and recover for a few days after surgery and wear a compression garment to help the treatment area heal and tighten. There is an immediate difference in the chin and neck shape, but the final jawline definition may take a few months to emerge.
How Much Does Chin Liposuction Cost?
Chin liposuction procedures can vary depending on the patient. Typically, chin liposuction can cost between X and X based on the patient’s circumstances. Some patients may need a neck lift or prefer to have a chin implant procedure combined with their chin liposuction, increasing the total cost of the procedure. However, performing multiple procedures at one time can be cost-effective and reduce your overall recovery time.
Chin liposuction can make a significant difference in your appearance and how you feel about yourself. It can create a more masculine jawline or a svelte, graceful neck. Many people look fitter and more youthful after they lose their double chin. For many of our patients, chin liposuction gives them more confidence in their appearance, impacting almost every aspect of their life. It can be a very gratifying experience to feel attractive and more like yourself.
