Did you know that you don’t have to live with that double chin? Unfortunately, many people find that no matter how much weight they lose, they can’t get that double chin to quite go away. Whether it came about from weight gain or aging, a double chin isn’t something that has to be tolerated.
There are really two issues that need to be addressed with a double chin. The skin in your neck has lost elasticity and could be sagging, and you have excess fat in the area. Both can be corrected with minimally invasive outpatient surgery.
One of the things that makes our process more effective is that we perform both submental liposuction and a neck lift to rid you of the double chin and bring back your youthful jawline and neckline. But what are these two procedures, and how do they eliminate a double chin?
When most people hear the word “liposuction,” they automatically think of sucking away tummy fat, but liposuction has many other uses. And with the smaller canula of submental liposuction, it is possible to treat very small target areas, like the jaw and chin. It allows for more careful shaping of the area.
This is where the neck lift comes into play. If the skin on your neckline is sagging or if you have a neck waddle after submental liposuction, a neck lift will smooth and tighten everything up from your chest to your chin, giving you back your youthful profile.
