Liposuction of the double chin

Key to Harmonious Contours

What is chin liposuction?

Chin liposuction involves suctioning out excess fat tissue and deposits from under the chin to reshape it and achieve harmonious facial contours.

If you have excess fat deposits under your chin that make you look overweight and older than you are, then you are likely a candidate for chin liposuction.


Procedure of Chin Liposuction

Chin liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. By removing excess fat tissue, the face is reshaped to achieve a slimmer and younger appearance. The harvested fat tissue can be used for further facial aesthetic corrections, such as filling in nasolabial folds. The procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes.

Recovery after chin liposuction

After the procedure, it is advised to rest for one day and wear an elastic bandage. Full recovery is expected within 3-5 days, with visible results becoming apparent after just 7-10 days.

Risks after chin liposuction

Swelling and bruising are common but temporary; there is a slight risk of infection requiring careful post-operative care. Uneven fat removal can cause skin irregularities, while changes in skin sensation and wound healing issues are possible but rare.


Who is an ideal candidate for chin liposuction?

Ideal candidates are individuals with excess fat tissue in the chin area who want to improve facial contours and appear younger.

The results are long-lasting, provided that stable body weight is maintained.

The pain is minimal and well-managed with prescribed medications.
