How to get rid of double chin? Double chin mainly results from excess fat and obesity and may appear as early as in 20s and 30s, becoming bigger and more visible over time. Though the condition usually has been related to excess weight, it is not always the case. Many patients still complain about double chin after losing a lot of weight. That is because other factors such as aging, anatomy and genetics can affect neck and chin area as well.

What are some suggested treatments?

Among all treatments, there are few procedures that are truly effective and yield the best results:

  • Liposuction:

Through this procedure fat is broken down and removed by a small incision under the chin. For liposuction, local anesthetic is needed and with the help of solvable stitches, there won’t be any scars left. If necessary, chin and neck area are improved by sculpting.

After Surgery: About 3-4 days after double chin liposuction surgery, the patient is ready to return home. The bruises and swelling may last up to 10-14 days and after that, full daily activity is permitted.

  • Face lift:

This is done by a surgery to remove excess loose skin in face and chin area and gently lift face skin in an upward direction. It is usually done under general anesthesia but sometimes can be performed under local anesthesia.

After surgery: After 2 weeks, patients can return to daily activities. Even though there are swelling and bruising during first 2 days, after day 10 they are mostly gone.

This surgery varies based on its aim: whether it’s done to remove excess skin or to tighten neck muscles. Mostly, these two are combined for a longer lasting result.

After surgery: It might take 2 weeks for patients to get back to routine daily activities. But you must note that this depends on patient’s condition and the extent of surgery. Bruises and swelling may be present in first week after surgery.

What is the best choice?

There is no correct answer to this question. It depends on patient’s age and condition. Sometimes to achieve the best result one has to undergo two or more procedures. In older patients it is common to undergo face and neck lift after liposuction, since skin is not elastic enough to recover fully on its own. Occasionally chin implant is recommended to patients with recessive chin.

Who is a candidate for a double chin removal surgery?

Men and women of all ages can benefit from this surgery. But best candidates are nonsmokers who are generally healthy without a significant medical condition. Even if someone has a certain medical concern, consulting with a doctor will help them know what is the best choice for them in such situation.

It is important for patients to know what can or cannot be achieved by such procedure and they must express their expectations clearly. The best result can be observed in a month or two, so it is essential to be patient and follow the doctor’s instructions.

How long does it take?

It varies depending on the procedure but approximately it takes 45 – 120 minutes. Due to local/general anesthesia, you wouldn’t feel any pain during surgery.

Double chin removal surgery recovery

Patients can return home the same day of surgery. A chin support must be worn for 2 days after surgery. Some swelling and bruising is normal and will disappear after a few days.

The ultimate result of a double chin surgery is visible after 3 months.

Avoid strenuous activities, try to relax and take prescribed painkiller medications if feeling pain. This usually lasts for the first 3 days.

It is recommended to lose about 2-5 kg of weight one month before surgery. A healthy diet and enough sleep will help patients recover much faster. Good news is that patients can undergo this surgery along with other cosmetic surgeries like chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, etc.

A chin removal surgery not only does eliminate double chin, but also refines the jawlines and balances facial features.

It is important to maintain a stable weight after the surgery, so that the effects will last longer.
