About Double Chin Liposuction
Double chin liposuction is a surgical technique applied to men and women that want to remove excess fat accumulated under the chin. This procedure may not only improve the chin shape incredibly but rejuvenate the expression of the whole face.
It is an excellent option for patients that are not willing to go under big liposuctions but aim to get a slimmer face.
During consultation, the surgeon will discuss your general health and analyze the areas where excess fat is deposited to determine if this is the best option. It is recommended that you ask as many questions to the doctor to determine if your expectations can be achieved.
Double chin liposuction takes place at a surgical room under general anesthesia and usually takes between 2 and 3 hours.
Recovery from this procedure is generally very quick. Even though, numbness and tingling may occur for a few weeks, it is must likely that you will be able to return to normal activities within a few days.
Any medical procedure entails a certain amount of risk; however, double chin liposuction is one of the safest cosmetic procedures available today. Minor complications may include swelling, numbness and tingling at the incision site. You may experience any of these conditions for up to a few weeks after the surgery.
This procedure eliminates the excess of fat permanently. However, permanent results will remain on time as long as the patient keeps a balanced and healthy diet avoiding fat to come back. As the skin will be loose and swollen, final results will be able to be evaluated after 2 months. It is highly recommended to wear a chin strap to maintain gentle compression, apply massages and lymphatic drainage and have a carboxitherapy.
