Fat buildup at the neck and under the jawline (double chin) gives a rounder swollen appearance to the facial profile. Double chin is popularly associated with weight gain and old age, but the fact is many young and fit people are also plagued by excess fat under the chin. When dieting and exercise do not affect this stubborn double chin fat, cosmetic surgery can come to your rescue. To attain a younger and more chiseled look, this surgical reduction has become a popular choice for people.
Our expert cosmetologists will recommend several approaches that can be used stand-alone or in combination to remove excess fat and tighten neck skin to create a firmer, more defined chin and neck area. Commonly used procedures are:
Chin liposuction : This procedure removes excess fat from under the chin using gentle suction. A small and strategic amount of fat is removed from each location for a smooth and even profile.
Submentoplasty : This procedure combines chin liposuction along with small incisions under the chin to remove the sagging skin. This helps to eliminate visible imperfections.
Neck lift : This surgery removes excess skin and tightens the neckline and muscles for a more contoured appearance.
To avoid relapse, a good diet and regular exercise are advised. Fortunately, this surgery has a success rate.
