How Is Double Chin Removal Done in Iran?
Double chin surgery can take from 45-120 minutes depending on the procedure. Due to local/general anesthesia, you won’t feel any pain during the operation.
Your surgeon may remove the accumulated fat under your chin by liposuction. However, to eliminate the excess skin facelift, neck lift, or a combination of both is required.
Sometimes, one of the above treatments can yield the desired results. In general, it is your surgeon who determines which method you need to go with. The aforementioned procedures are described below:
Through this procedure, fat is broken down and removed by a small incision under the chin. For liposuction, a local anesthetic is needed and with the help of solvable stitches, there won’t be any scars left. If necessary, the chin and neck area can be improved by sculpting and lifting.
After Surgery: About 1-3 days after 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.
This is done by surgery to remove excess loose skin in the 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 the 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 the patient’s condition and the extent of surgery. Bruises and swelling may be present in the first week after surgery.
Cost of Double Chin Surgery in Iran
Based on your individualized procedure, the cost of your surgery will vary. For a double chin removal with face/neck lift, you will need to pay from $700 to $1,500. However, if there is also liposuction involved or you are only getting double chin liposuction in Iran, it will cost from $600 to $900.
Coolsculpting: A Non-Surgical Alternative for Removing Double Chin
As a non-invasive option, coolsculpting or fat freezing can address the piled fat under your chin if you are reluctant to undergo a surgery.
Procedure: Using fat freezing technology, the excess fat cells are frozen and then destroyed. This procedure does not provide immediate effects and people need to wait up to 2-3 months to see the final results.
Moreover, it is noteworthy that not everyone can benefit from this procedure and the results are not as effective as the surgical method.
Costs: Coolsculpting is cheaper than the surgical procedures of extracting the chin fat. In Iran, you can have it done with only $100-$150 (per area).
Best Double Chin Treatment Option
There is no correct answer to the question of “which double chin treatment is the best choice?”. It greatly depends on the 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 the skin is not elastic enough to recover fully on its own.
In general, a combination of liposuction and lift procedures would do a far better job than undergoing a single procedure. Occasionally chin implant is also recommended to patients with a recessive chin.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR A DOUBLE CHIN 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 a 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.
RECOVERY AFTER DOUBLE CHIN REMOVAL SURGERY
Usually, patients can return home the same day of surgery. Chin support must be worn for 2 days after surgery.
Some swelling and bruising is normal and will disappear after 3 to 14 days. You may also feel pain or discomfort for the first few days following your operation. Avoid strenuous activities, try to relax and take prescribed painkiller medications if necessary.
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 and neck lift.
It is important to maintain a stable weight after the surgery so that the effects last longer.
