Micro-Liposuction for Double Chin Removal and Jawline Reshaping
About Micro-Liposuction for Double Chin Removal and Jawline Reshaping (Lunch Time Double Chin Removal)
Since this procedure was introduced to our clinic by Dr Qin, from Beverly Hills, California, the service is always highly in demand, especially considering the immediate results.
What is a double chin?
A double chin is defined as a fat pocket deposit underneath the chin (and possibly neck and/or jawline) making it appear as if you have two chins, or an ill-defined chin and jawline. A double chin may be a sign of weight gain, the natural ageing process, or it may be caused by family genetics. A double chin, especially genetically caused, can be extremely difficult to improve satisfactorily by weight loss alone. Liposuction of the area may create a chin, neck and/or jawline contour which would not be possible otherwise.
How is the procedure performed?
After numbing fluids are injected into your chin area, a small incision (2mm) is made in the skin underneath of your chin. This incision is carefully situated to be as hidden as possible. A fine metal tube (cannula) is inserted through the incision into the fatty area and by working the tube back and forth, the fat is shaved off in tunnels and evacuated through attached a suction syringe. This process allows your jaw line area to be re-shaped by your doctor to achieve the most pleasing contour. No stitch needed for this small incision. It will be applied a small dressing and a compression face strip after the procedure.
What can be expected in the post-surgical period?
Following the procedure, you can immediately see a result: Your double chin will have disappeared, and your jaw line will be evident. You may be bruised, the area can be dis-colouredwith tenderness and swelling after the procedure for one to two weeks. The bruising usually starts to settle after the short period and is usually well faded by about 1-2 week. Some people notice tightness or hardness, lumpiness, numbness in the chin/neck treated area for a long time, this usually settles in 3-6 months.
What are the post-procedure care instructions?
Usually, you can go home after recovering for about 30 minutes in our clinic after the procedure. You need wear a face strip for 2-5 days, dependant on your personal condition. Usually, your doctor will prescribe some pain medications as necessary, and some antibiotic to prevent infection after the procedure. You should avoid over-the-counter medications that could increase bleeding risk, such as Nurofen or Aspirin. You will need to return to our clinic for a regular check-up several times over the following months to for progress checks as your doctor required.
