If chin liposuction to remove a double chin is something you’ve been considering we are here to tell you all about it. This will help you to make an informed decision.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

One can’t undergo a cosmetic procedure, simply because one wants to. Some factors need to be kept in mind and assessed, which will work to determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. For one to consider chin liposuction, one should have a double chin as the procedure removes the unwanted subcutaneous fat pockets present under the chin. As fat pockets are to be removed, the skin will have to bounce back after the surgery. For smooth and well-defined results, one must have a good skin tone and no sagging skin. Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, the overall health picture is taken into consideration. One needs to be in good overall health. During the consultation, the surgeon will determine whether you are an ideal candidate.

What happens in chin liposuction?

In chin liposuction, the patient is put under general anaesthesia. The surgery lasts for about an hour. In the beginning, the surgeon makes a small incision right under the chin. This incision is about a couple of millimetres in diameter, making the treatment area small. There isn’t any visible scarring. After the incision has been made, the desired amount of fat is removed. If you want, you can also pair up the liposuction procedure with a chin implant. This combination of procedures helps you to achieve a stronger-looking bone structure and balanced facial proportions. After that, the incisions are closed. A soft compression garment is wrapped around the head to minimise swelling.

What does recovery look like?

After the surgery, you can go back home with a friend or a family member on the same day if feeling up to it. Before leaving, you will be provided with a list of instructions, advice and pain medication. Recovery is a fairly comfortable process. You might experience swelling and bruising. For the next couple of weeks, it is recommended to avoid bending over or doing any heavy lifting. It is suggested to avoid any activity that could increase the swelling and pressure in the face. Ensure that there are multiple pillows under the head and neck as this will help to bring down the swelling when sleeping. You will be required to take a week off from work to recover. The recovery is fast.
