Double Chin Treatment

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.

Different Types Of Treatment That Helps To Correct Double Chin

Liposuction

Liposuction is considered as the gold standard for double chin correction. In chin liposuction, the excess fat is removed from the under-chin area. The liposuction is performed through a very small 2mm liposuction cannula by making pinhole kind of incisions under the chin and the sides of the jaw angle. The suction pressure is applied, and the fat is extracted. The ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, when used, it results in underlying fat removal as well as skin tightening. The procedure requires a single session and provides permanent results.

Facelift surgery

Patients who suffer from the signs of aging in the midface and neck region. Sometimes in such cases, along with facelift surgery, double chin correction is done in addition.

Deoxycholic acid/ Kybella injections

This is a non-invasive option for double chin correction. The deoxycholic acid is made up of bile acid that helps in the breakdown of fat and helps in its complete digestion. The same deoxycholic acid is used to remove excess neck fat, the injections are given, and fat breakdown occurs over time. One may need two to three sessions for the same.

Cryosculpting /coolsculpting

It is an FDA approved ultra therapy treatment. This technique freezes the fat cell and causes cell death and naturally removes the targeted fat cells out of the body through urine. A person may need 6-8 sessions to completely melt the fat.

Hifu

High intensity focused ultrasound tightens the skin, improves the collagen, and improves blood circulation. It is based on the fact that is, increasing blood circulation results in an increase in the fat breakdown in the region, plus collagen remodeling leads to skin tightening. This therapy also requires multiple sessions.
