Double chin Liposuction
The neck area can be readily sculpted with liposuction of the neck and jowl. The fat pads involved are relatively small in size as compared with other parts of the body like abdomen, but even removal of a small amount of fat in this region makes a big difference to the appearance.
The double chin is created by subcutaneous fat deposit in front of the neck, below the jaw area also known as a submental chin. If you have too much subcutaneous fat in your cheeks, you may feel like you appear chubby especially if you are not suffering from obesity. Mostly genetically inherited, the under chin fat removal can be done by liposuction through a very small incision under the chin.
Neck / under chin liposuction can also be done in combination with buccal fat pad extraction if you are bothered by chubby cheeks.
Fat is then removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimize damage to surrounding tissues.
A compression garment will usually have to be worn for a few days, to support the neck tissue during the initial healing process.
Double chin liposuction is one of the safest liposuction procedures. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes excess fat so that the jaw line appears more firm and chiseled with a defined facial profile. It is usually performed under local anethesia by closed approach (without any visible scar). Edema of the face usually takes 5 days to subside after which there won’t be any dressing unless the nasal bones are shifted inwards to make the dorsum narrow.
