Benefits and Downsides of Chin Liposuction

Double chins can result from aging, genetics, or having a higher BMI. Depending on the reasons behind it, a double chin or submental fat can be treated with liposuction. A chin liposuction procedure removes fat from the subcutaneous layer of skin underneath the chin.

Dr. David Shokrian discusses the benefits and downsides of this procedure and if it can eliminate your double chin safely and effectively by removing stubborn pockets of fat that fail to go away any other way.

Excessive fat on the chin can leave you looking old and affects your overall profile and appearance. If not treated timely, it can also lead to the dreaded double chin that is not easy to get rid of. Chin liposuction is an excellent treatment option for the majority of patients who are tired of persistent chin fat and want to enjoy a graceful, slim profile.

If you are considering chin lipo, here are some crucial facts you should consider before proceeding with this cosmetic treatment.

Benefits of Chin Liposuction

A chin lipo may help you achieve a young-looking and slimmer profile by eliminating excess fat around the chin, upper neck area or a double chin successfully. Knowing the benefits and downsides of chin liposuction gives you a chance to better understand what this procedure is all about and if it is the right choice for you.

The Chin Becomes Prominent

If you are experiencing jowls and sagging tissues in the chin, liposuction can remove them and make your jawline more prominent. You can attain noticeable improvement in your overall appearance as well as complexion. Chin liposuction can also tighten the cheeks and creates a sharp jawline, which makes your face look younger.

It Gets Rid of Stubborn Fat

No matter how hard you exercise or diet, chin fat is stubborn and refuses to go away. There are no exercises to target the specific chin area, and it becomes even tougher if your double chin is due to genetics. Liposuction is the most effective way to get rid of the chin fat and the sagging that comes with it.

You can eliminate the double chin and sagging skin problems with liposuction most effectively and look forward to enhanced facial features within a short time.

Chin Liposuction Can Be Performed With Local Anesthesia

A qualified New York plastic surgeon will determine the type of anesthesia that will suit you best for this procedure. There is general as well as local anesthesia, and for many people local anesthesia is a good choice when it comes to chin lipo.

It Does Not Take Longer

As chin is not a huge part of the body, it does not take long to perform liposuction on this area. For most people, it just takes under an hour to perform chin lipo.

It Is the Fastest Way to Get Rid of Fat

If you are looking for a safe, effective, and quick way to get rid of stubborn fat under the chin, liposuction is the best option. Not only it helps to get rid of a double chin fast but also helps to refine your facial features without causing any side effects or complications.

It Keeps Away Signs of Aging

The chin and neck are the two areas of the body where signs of aging appear early and are fairly prominent as well. Excess fat on the neck and chin can make you look older even if you are not that old. Liposuction of the chin helps to reduce the buildup of fat naturally with normal fluctuations and other physical changes.

It Is a Minimally Invasive Procedure

Chin liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, as no linear incisions are made. A special surgical cannula is inserted that suctions out the fatty tissue safely. You can see results quickly without any harsh side effects. Chin liposuction is a small surgery, as compared to invasive plastic surgeries like tummy lift or even full body liposuction, and only requires a few small incisions and a relatively short recovery period.

Downsides of Chin Liposuction

Despite its numerous benefits, there are a few downsides to chin liposuction that you must keep in mind when thinking about undergoing the procedure.

You Will Need Some Time to Recover

Regardless of how simple, quick, and easy the procedure is, you will need some time off from work and routine activities. While each patient reacts differently to the surgery, most people need about 3 to 5 days for the incisions to heal. You should also be prepared to wear a chin strap or compression garment to promote healing and encourage healthy tissue growth.

Chin Liposuction Does Not Work for Skin Laxity

Chin liposuction is excellent for fat reduction but not for skin laxity. Liposuction of the chin removes the fatty deposits from beneath the skin, but it does not alter skin laxity significantly. It may require a different type of treatment to improve loosing of skin.

Patients Older Than 60 Years May Need Additional Skin Tightening

Even after having liposuction, people who are over 60 may need additional skin tightening procedures to treat sagging or loosing skin. Liposuction alone does not offer the cosmetic results they want to achieve in certain cases.

Despite its few downsides, chin liposuction is an effective surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the shape of your chin and make you feel more confident in your appearance.

Schedule an appointment with Dr. David Shokrian of Millennial Plastic Surgery if you are uncomfortable with your chin shape and want a solution with a higher success rate and better results. Chin is a good area for liposuction as it targets stubborn fat accumulation that not only looks bad but also affects your self-esteem. Dr. Shokrian uses the least invasive method of liposuction and ensures there is little or no scarring, minimum pain, and a short recovery period to help you enjoy better looks and enhanced quality of life.
