The appearance of a secondary area that develops beneath the chin is referred to as a double chin. Double chin is like cellulite and is caused by the presence of fat and loose skin beneath the chin or around the neck. Sometimes in people who diet perfectly or loose bodyweight still, the fleshy fold of skin under the chin never disappears. It gives rounder and full appearance to one's facial profile. There is some genetic predisposition in some people, i.e., the double chin runs in the family, while in others, when they age, the fat accumulates around their chin.
The double chin treatment aims to remove this stubborn fat and tighten the skin below the chin, which helps an individual achieve a perfect jaw line.
Depending on the consensus made between the patient and the surgeon after discussing in detail about each procedure, the plan type is decided. All this depends on like the patient wants an invasive or non-invasive treatment, single session or multiple sessions’ treatment, one-time permanent result, or other that needs to be repeated after an interval, whether the patient needs finer adjustments or huge changes in the chin area.
Post-op complications it may present in the form of seroma, hematoma, infection, and rarely marginal mandibular nerve injury (that can lead to numbness around the lower lip region). The occurrence of complications is rare, but if they occur, it recovers completely over the period of a few months.
Postoperatively the patient is discharged on the very same day. A chin strap needs to be worn for one week for 24 hours and later for two more weeks at bedtime.
Lipo fat removal is the gold-standard treatment for double chin reduction. It is a single session procedure with permanent results, unlike other procedures. And even the results are highly precise as compared to other available procedures.
Significant skin tightening as well as it provides a beautiful jaw line. Downtime is there, but swelling usually settles in a week or two.
