If you are suffering from excessive fat under your chin, you understand frustration: no skin program, diet or exercise can improve this contour. Fortunately, there is a minimally-invasive surgical technique that often provides relief.
Liposuction is a safe and effective way to get rid of a sagging, or “double” chin. The treatment is relatively comfortable and can be completed as a short, outpatient procedure. The affected area is small and only local anesthetic is necessary, which leads to a brief recovery and a relatively low risk of complications.
The procedure typically takes less than an hour, with the surgeon making a small incision under the jawline. Unwanted fat tissue is removed from the chin area, and the incision is closed with one stitch. There may be a small amount of bruising and swelling, and a light prescription will minimize pain. Most patients can return to work after a day or two, and a chin strap is recommended to maintain contour.
