Liposuction For Double Chin Elimination

Having a double chin, also known as submental fat, can make you feel self-conscious and unhappy with your appearance. The presence of a double chin can often make you look heavier than you actually are, and trying to get rid of it can be frustrating. Even if you live a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly, getting rid of that pesky double chin can be a challenge.

The good news is that using cosmetic procedures such as injections of Kybella or liposuction for double chin removal is safe and effective. Today we are going to look at ways to effectively reduce excess fat that has accumulated below the jaw and resulted in a double chin.

What Is Chin Liposuction And How Is It Done?

Liposuction is a surgical technique that is used to remove excess fat from targeted areas of the body, such as the submental fat that forms under the jaw, creating a double chin. VASER is one of the many liposuction techniques. It is done with the help of ultrasound energy which increases comfort to patients compared to conventional lipo while delivering effective fat removal from even tiny areas.

Common steps of the VASER liposuction are as follows:

  1. First of all, a cosmetic surgeon gives you an injection of anesthetic so that you can relax and avoid feeling unnecessary discomfort and pain;
  2. Next, under your chin or at the back of your ears, you will get a minor incision;
  3. The surgeon will place a special ultrasonic cannula to deliver ultrasound waves;
  4. The cannula stays in its place firmly while ultrasound waves do their job of destroying the fat deposits;
  5. Finally, the surgeon uses the cannula to pull out the loosened extra fat cells.

The huge advantage of VASER liposuction is that it uses ultrasound waves that destroy the fat cells from the body while being completely harmless to the tissues and blood vessels around.

The cosmetic surgeon’s experience and skills are essential during the procedure because he or she will have to use them to create face and jawline contours that will look beautiful and natural.

What Is The Recovery Time For Double Chin Liposuction?

After undergoing liposuction to remove a double chin, it may take a few weeks to a few months before you will be able to see the final results of your procedure.

Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common liposuction side effects. Your surgeon will recommend a compression garment, which must be worn for about four to six weeks. It is important to follow the directions that will be provided to you by your surgeon, as this garment is designed to help mitigate swelling and promote faster healing. Depending on the extent of the liposuction procedure, the surgeon may also provide prescriptions for antibiotics or pain relievers.

Usually, by the end of the first month, most of the visible swelling will have receded, and you can see the results of your double chin liposuction procedure. Individuals recover at different rates, so recovery may take a little longer than you think or may not take as long as anticipated. The most important thing you can do is stay in close communication with your surgeon so they can ensure your recovery is progressing as it should. They will let you know when it is safe for you to resume all your normal activities, including exercise, and will provide you with specific directions based on your circumstances.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Liposuction For Double Chin Removal?

Liposuction can offer a viable option as a treatment plan and solution for individuals struggling with a double chin, offering several benefits, including:

  • Enhanced Facial Contour: Liposuction can dramatically improve the appearance of a double chin, providing a more contoured and sculpted facial profile and removing the appearance that you are carrying excess weight.
  • Boost in Confidence: Eliminating a double chin can significantly enhance self-esteem and boost confidence, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and satisfied with their appearance and how they appear in pictures.
  • Produces Quick and Effective Results: Liposuction for a double chin typically provides noticeable results in a relatively short period. Most patients can notice a substantial improvement in their profile and the appearance of their double chin within a few weeks.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedure: Compared to more invasive surgical options, VASER liposuction is a minimally invasive alternative that effectively removes a double chin, requiring only tiny incisions and the added benefit of a much shorter recovery time.

How Does Kybella Work For Eliminating A Double Chin?

Kybella is a medication containing deoxycholic acid injected into problem areas subcutaneously to dissolve unwanted fat. It is naturally metabolized by the body, similar to the deoxycholic acid manufactured and used by the gallbladder to process dietary fat. It is the first injectable, non-surgical therapy that works to eliminate or reduce localized fat deposits.

Kybella is effective in eliminating a double chin, and The ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) reported that in 2020 alone, more than 135,000 patients were treated with Kybella injections. Depending on the severity of the double chin and other patient-specific factors, more than one Kybella treatment may be necessary to achieve the desired results.

Other Double Chin Treatments

In addition to Kybella or liposuction for treating a double chin, other cosmetic treatments may be effective in reducing the appearance of a double chin.

FaceTite is a non-surgical method of tightening the skin from the inside out that uses radiofrequency technology. The procedure tightens, tones, and rejuvenates the skin from the inside out by using radiofrequency to selectively heat the lower layers of the skin, which are predominantly made of collagen. FaceTite does more than just reinforce the preexisting collagen fibers; it also encourages the body to increase its collagen production.

When used on submental fat, FaceTite can drastically reduce or eliminate the appearance of a double chin.

Evoke is a non-surgical procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) heat that can travel deep into the skin and effectively rearrange the tissue in the treatment area. It is an effective anti-aging treatment because it can help to redistribute fat and tighten the surrounding skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

The radiofrequency energy gets passed down to the treatment area accurately, evenly, and precisely under the full control of the doctor. Evoke non-surgical face remodeling treatment removes your double chin effectively and without any pain.
