Double Chin Liposuction

INTRODUCTION

DOUBLE CHIN LIPOSUCTION

Looking in the mirror and seeing a double chin or a loose neck line can make you appear heavy and make your jaw and neck undefined. For those who are dissatisfied with their chin and neck appearance or would like a sharp model like jaw line, you may want to know more about the double chin liposuction offered at The Lime Tree Clinic. Double chin liposuction is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that not only removes the dreaded double chin and slims your face, but also takes away years of your age, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

What causes double chins?

A double chin is an extra layer of fat around the neck directly under the chin. The growth of fatty tissue under the chin is often associated with weight gain, but this is not always the case, as genetics or loosening of skin beneath the chin may also cause a double chin. Excess fat that has accumulated under the chin is very difficult to get rid of, as it is often resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction will permanently and effectively remove the double chin.


How does Double Chin Liposuction work?

Double chin liposuction involves the insertion of a small hollow tube (cannula) through a small, hidden skin incision to remove the excess fat under the chin using only gentle suction. The area under the chin has a small amount of localised fat, so these deposits are easily and efficiently removed.


Is Double Chin Liposuction safe?

Double chin liposuction is a relatively safe procedure with little to no side effects and minimal downtime when done correctly by a qualified doctor. Due to the small area involved, the procedure is much simpler and much safer compared to other types of liposuction. Our qualified cosmetic doctor will gladly discuss all possible benefits, risks and alternatives at the time of your consultation, ensuring you are well informed.


Who is a suitable candidate for Double Chin Liposuction?

Double chin liposuction is a procedure that aims to remove localised fat deposits under the chin. It is not meant to be a substitute for weight loss. The procedure is ideal for someone who is not grossly overweight, with good health and has tried to eliminate fat through exercise and diet. Our expert cosmetic doctor will perform a full assessment to review your chin, the elasticity of your skin and medical history to determine your suitability for this procedure.

What is the procedure of Double Chin Liposuction?

Double chin liposuction is a walk in walk out procedure that generally takes about 60 minutes. The procedure requires only local anaesthetic, however, twilight sedation can be given upon request. The procedure starts with a facial assessment to mark the area for liposuction and incision sites. A small hidden incision is made which leaves no visible scarring. Our cosmetic doctor will inject a solution to the treatment area which numbs the treatment area as well as minimise bleeding. A cannula is then inserted to remove the fat using controlled back and forth motion to reshape the chin to the desired contours.


Double Chin Liposuction aftercare

The procedure itself is usually painless, but you will feel sore in the area for a week afterwards. You will experience some swelling and bruising immediately after your procedure, though these effects are temporary and generally subside in 2 weeks. You can resume your daily activities after the procedure. The stitch is removed one week after the procedure and there is no visible scar as the incisions are only 2 to 3 mm, the size of a pen tip.


When can I see the treatment result and how long will it last for?

You will notice a gradual improvement in your chin profile after a week when the swelling has subsided. Depending on individual health and lifestyle, it can take up to 3 months after the treatment before you notice the full results. The results are long-lasting as long as you maintain a stable and healthy weight. In addition to a sharp chin and jawline, the treatment will also tighten the skin of the neck, creating a slim and defined neckline.
