Double chin surgery, also called chin liposuction, is routinely performed by the top rated NYC board certified plastic surgeons of the Plastic Surgery Group of NYC as an outpatient procedure. The surgical procedure is minimally invasive and aims to remove excess chin fat through the use of liposuction. Our top of the line board certified plastic surgeons perform each procedure at our state-of-the-art fully accredited private practice located in Manhattan, NY.
A slackening of skin behind the chin and on the neck (along the jawline) is known as a double chin. As it progresses, it can make a person’s face appear ‘droopy,’ making them appear exhausted or even unhappy. There may be no distinction between the jawline and the neck in extreme situations. Our best in class board certified plastic surgeons are highly trained in double chin surgery and routinely perform a variety of facial cosmetic procedures, including chin liposuction, at our fully accredited private practice in Manhattan, NYC.
Both men and women may opt to undergo double chin surgery, but for different reasons. Women tend to undergo double chin surgery to create a slimmer appearance and profile, while men opt to undergo chin liposuction to diminish excess fatty deposits in the chin and make the facial structure more chiseled and masculine. Men are known to have thinner and less elastic facial skin and may benefit from a more simple liposuction technique.
Common double chin surgery (chin liposuction) target areas:
- Wrinkling jawline
- Undefined jawline
- Excess skin tissue on the face
- Excess fat around the chin
During your free chin liposuction consultation, you will speak with your plastic surgeon one-on-one to discuss your realistic post-operative goals. Your top rated plastic surgeon will perform a routine medical exam to ensure you are a candidate for double chin surgery. You will have time to go over any concerns or questions you might have and the plastic surgeon will explain the procedure to you.
Reasons patients may opt to undergo double chin surgery:
- Discomfort with excess chin fat
- You wish to restore a youthful appearance on the lower part of a woman’s face
- Revitalize a more masculine and chiseled look on a man’s face
- Quick results with restorative definition to the lower part of the face
- You feel insecure as a result of your double chin / chin fat
- Diet / exercise do not effectively remove excess facial fat
Double chin surgery usually takes under an hour, depending on your unique anatomy, and patients can expect to go home the same day. Chin liposuction is minimally invasive and your top of the line plastic surgeon makes careful, minuscule incisions out of plain sight to ensure minimal to no scarring.
During double chin surgery, your best in class board certified plastic surgeon inserts a tiny tube (called a cannula) in various spots in the chin. The fat is broken down through a swift back and forth movement that effectively loosens fat cells and sucks them out of the body. The cannula is very small, so only tiny incisions are made.
Double chin surgery not only removes excess fat deposits in the chin but also helps patients attain a smoother profile and can boost overall self-confidence. Patients may opt to undergo other procedures in conjunction with chin liposuction, such as a neck lift, facelift, or blepharoplasty. All of these procedures may be performed at the same time as your chin liposuction procedure.
