Most people think of liposuction as a procedure you get for your arms, buttocks or thighs. But did you know it can remove that unwanted double chin? A double chin may cause you to feel self-conscious because people notice your face first. The American Society of Aesthetic Surgery reported 395,000 clients had liposuction in 2015, but it still isn’t known how many people included the chin in the treatment. Here is some more information about chin liposuction.
What is Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction removes fat using a gentle technique. The doctor will skillfully remove the fat from the treatment area before closing it off. You will then be monitored until the anesthesia wears off. You should be able to go home the same day.
Benefits of Chin Liposuction
Chin liposuction is minimally-invasive and requires less downtime than other types of procedures. Most clients can return to work in just days if their job isn’t psychically demanding and return to heavier activity in just weeks.
Since the incisions are made in discreet areas, you should see minimal side effects. Follow the doctor’s instructions to care for your skin. This treatment not only removes any amount of fat from the chin, but it also contours the jawline. Likewise, it removes fat from the neck to create a more natural transition line between the neck and jaw.
Some clients notice results immediately, but it usually takes days to weeks to see a big improvement in your appearance. It’s also important to note that the removal of chin fat via liposuction is permanent, unlike other treatments. Lifestyle factors such as age, pregnancy or weight gain can impact the results of liposuction, but our doctor can discuss this with you during your consultation.
The Best Candidates
This treatment is ideal for clients who have struggled to get rid of a double chin through diet and exercise alone. Since this method of fat removal isn’t intended for weight loss, candidates should be at or close to their ideal body weight. They also need good skin elasticity. Pregnant women, diabetics, and people with slow-healing lesions, and other issues do not qualify. Our doctor will evaluate you to ensure you meet the requirements at your first meeting.
