Do you have excess fat stored under your chin? Genetics, age, hormones and other factors can contribute to a double chin, changing the appearance of your face and neck. This submental fat is impossible to target through diet or exercise, especially if you are not overweight. Chin liposuction surgery is the best way to slim your chin and we offer this procedure at HMS Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL.
Fatty tissue under the chin and around the upper neck can distort the jawline, chin and facial profile. In an age where most people are video chatting and conferencing regularly, a double chin can distort the facial appearance. Chin fat can make the face look heavy and older, even on people who have a healthy bodyweight. Liposuction can slim the neck and define the chin for a more attractive, youthful appearance.
Eliminate Your Double Chin
Chin liposuction surgery is performed through tiny incisions under the chin to access the submental fat under the skin. Injections may be used to restrict the blood vessels and liquify the fat for easier removal. Cannulas suction away the fat cells to sculpt the neck and chin for better definition. The procedure can usually be performed in about one hour under local anesthesia, but sedation is available for patients who want to relax during the procedure.
Most patients have 3-5 days of downtime after a chin liposculpture procedure. A compression garment is worn to help the skin shrink to the newly contoured chin and neck. Some swelling and bruising are expected, but these will dissipate over the following weeks. The results are somewhat noticeable immediately but improve over time as the skin and tissue heal.
