What is chin liposuction?

Chin liposuction or neck liposuction is a safe, effective procedure that removes excess fat underneath the chin area. However, unwanted fat under the chin is often frustrating because there are no specific exercises to eliminate this stubborn fat.

Even for those people who are naturally slender, unwanted fat under the chin resists diet and exercise, which is why neck liposuction may be an ideal solution. Learn more about your chin liposuction options with a consultation at North Beach Plastic Surgery.

What are the benefits of chin liposuction?

Chin Liposuction is one of the quickest approaches to remove unwanted fat from the double chin and yield dramatic results. In most cases, the procedure takes only 30 minutes to one hour to visibly reduce the appearance of fat below the chin. However, you need to wear a chin strap for up to two weeks to reduce swelling and fluid buildup.

Am I a good candidate for chin liposuction?

It is essential to have enough skin elasticity for chin liposuction to heal and bounce back to your new contoured shape. However, for older patients, additional procedures may be needed to remove excess skin, such as a neck lift. Your surgeon at North Beach Plastic Surgery will assess whether you have enough skin elasticity to yield a good result.

Your Chin Liposuction Procedure

Chin liposuction is an outpatient procedure and is performed either awake with numbing medication or under sedation. Once the treated area is numb, your surgeon will make small incisions under your chin and, in some cases, behind your ears. Then a small cannula is inserted, which is attached to a vacuum-like device to break up and remove the fat. Once your chin and upper neck area are reshaped and contoured, the incisions are closed with one or two stitches.

Chin Liposuction Recovery & Results

At the end of your surgery, the doctor attaches a supportive chin strap to keep the skin taut while it heals. You must wear your chin strap for the allotted time frame for optimal healing; You will want to refrain from any strenuous activity for the following two weeks to avoid additional swelling. You will also want to sleep with your head elevated. However, your doctor may recommend lying flat with a small neck pillow may help to reduce swelling and expedite your recovery. Your results are immediate, but it may take a few months for your new jawline to fully emerge. The ever-slight swelling continues to subside even months later. After receiving chin liposuction Virginia Beach patients can expect long-lasting results as long as you maintain your weight. Keep in mind, the skin under your chin will gradually age, but this is not something you have to worry about for some time.
