Do You Have It In, For Your Double Chin?

Do You Have It In, For Your Double Chin?

Millicent Odunze Geers, MD, MPH

Do you have trouble spots, and suffer from a double chin? You know, those areas of unwanted fat pockets that don’t seem to go away with exercise. Well, you’re not alone. Trouble spots can be camouflaged by clothing. Your double chin? Not so much.  Additional fat in your chin area, can result from a variety of causes, including your facial skeletal structure, excess weight, and/ or genetics. Hence, how do you get rid of your double chin?

The chin is one of the easiest areas on the entire body to treat with Liposuction. This procedure is also called Submental Liposuction, Chin Liposuction, or Chin Lipo. For delicate areas like the chin, Micro-Liposuction using gentle suction and a very small tube (only 3 millimeters in diameter) called a cannula, can sculpt an elegant, refined jawline in about 30 minutes! Liposuction of the chin is often performed simultaneously with Neck Liposuction, since it helps smooth the transition between the two areas. Chin Liposuction can be performed comfortably while you are awake under local anesthesia. Awake Liposuction avoids the risks and recovery associated with general anesthesia. There is no need to recover from surgery AND anesthesia for chin Liposuction. After surgery, you’ll wear compression in the chin and neck area. By shrink-wrapping your skin it sculpts a new contour and reduces swelling. 

So, what are you waiting for? Get rid of your double chin and trade it in for a sculpted jawline and smooth neckline.
