One of the most important aspects of looking your best is a contoured profile. Unfortunately, this is nearly impossible to achieve when you have a double chin. The inability to remove this excess fat under the chin with exercise and dieting makes the problem even worse. Luckily, you can easily fix this key problem area by undergoing chin liposuction. Once your double chin is gone, you will have the defined jawline needed to have the perfect profile.
What Is Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve your profile by physically removing the excess fat under your chin. In addition to removing the unwanted fat tissues, this procedure will also help tighten the muscles under the chin. The treatment is exactly the same as a traditional liposuction procedure except that it is performed exclusively on the chin. This is essentially the quickest, easiest and safest way to eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
The entire procedure will be performed in one of the offices at our treatment facility. A special numbing solution will be injected under the chin shortly after you arrive for the appointment. In addition to making sure you feel no pain, this medication also restricts your blood flow. We will only have to remove a small amount of fat to deliver your desired results, so the entire chin liposuction procedure will take less than one hour to complete.
What Happens After the Procedure?
Since you will not be administered general anesthesia, you will be able to go home almost immediately after the chin liposuction is finished. A special bandage will be wrapped around your head and jaw before you go home. This wrap helps tighten your skin by ensuring it heals in the proper manner. You may notice some minor bruising near the treatment area, but this can easily be concealed with makeup if necessary.
You may need to return for a follow-up appointment one week after the chin liposuction. The doctor will remove your head wrap at this time. They will also remove the stitches used to close your incisions. You can start performing light activities after this appointment. There will be no restrictions on your activities after healing for two weeks. You should notice a significant improvement in your profile two weeks after the chin liposuction. The body will continue to adjust over time, so it will likely take about nine months before your final appearance is revealed.
