      Double Chin

      Double chin is medically called submental fat pad or jowls. There is excess fat accumulation in the chin and jowl area causing visible loss of contour to the mandible. Generally related to obesity, it may also be present in individuals who are not fat. The cervicofacial angle of the youthful neck is around 118 degrees and with the collection of submental fat there is obvious decrease in cervicofacial concavity. An undefined mandibular border is also indicative of aging.

      It would not be a surprise to note that 25% of the liposuction is conducted in the submental area usually in association with facelift procedures.

      Candidates for removal of double chin present with generalized severe or even mild obesity, excess and isolated submental fat and periocular wrinkling.

       

      What are the causes of double chin?

      Sagging jowls or double chin not only makes you look older but also completely alters the way you look. Some of the contributing factors to sagging submental fat are genetic, environmental, natural aging process and repetitive facial expressions. As you age vital components of the skin such as collagen and elastin are lost and gravitational forces take a toll on your skin. This pull causes sagging of the skin and there is no protein in the skin to keep it firm.

      The Procedure

      The development of the double chin is distressing for a lot of individuals. Some folks have it and are not essentially overweight. Whether the double chin is mainly fat or skin and fat, we help you determine the most effective treatment strategy for this issue.


      What are the treatment options?

      If you are somebody who struggles with additional facial fat, you might be eyeing for ways to shrink the appearance of a double chin. Chin fat reduction can be accomplished with a range of approaches. You may first try a couple of diverse exercises to tone the region around your chin and decrease fat stores. These workouts are very effective, but it might be a while before you see any outcomes. Your chin obesity or turkey neck might not totally go away with this technique. Plastic surgery for chin obesity reduction however, will eliminate all of the problem areas. This is a speedy and simple surgery. Liposuction can be used to throw out any superfluous fat stocks causing your problem. Moreover, a chin left can help to confiscate any excess skin in the affected zone. Surgeons judiciously pull the skin tight around your neck region, confiscating any drooping skin.

       

      About

      • Double chin surgery recommendations are based on your skin quality and desired effects.
      • People aged 20 to 50 who have more elastic skin may benefit from neck liposuction. This procedure removes excess fat, but it won’t improve skin quality.
      • Neck lift surgery can correct a double chin, as well as sagging or loose skin on the neck.
      • Submentoplasty is a surgical approach that’s somewhere in the middle of these two and involves liposuction and small incisions under the chin. Some doctors call it a “mini” neck lift.
      • Sometimes, doctors perform a neck liposuction and a neck lift together. They may also suggest these procedures along with a facelift or chin augmentation.

      Safety

      • Doctors can perform chin liposuction under local anesthesia.
      • Doctors can perform submentoplasty under local anesthesia with or without sedation.
      • Doctors can perform neck lift procedures under general anesthesia or via sedation with intravenous (IV) medications.
      • Side effects can include swelling, bruising, loss of facial sensitivity, pigmentation changes to the skin, infection, and facial asymmetry.

      Convenience

      • Most people can return to work within one to two weeks.
      • A person can usually return to normal activities faster with liposuction compared to a more invasive neck lift.

      Efficacy

      • If a person maintains a consistent weight, the effects of chin liposuction are permanent, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
      • Length of duration for neck lift results depend on a person’s skin quality and surgical approach. Your surgeon will discuss this with you before surgery.

      What is double chin surgery?

      When it comes to skin aging, the neck is one of the first places to show age, and, for some people, fat is more likely to collect under the chin. This extra fat and loose skin can affect their overall jaw and facial profile.

      A plastic surgeon can correct a double chin using any of the following procedures:

      • Chin liposuction. This procedure removes excess fat from under the chin.
      • Submentoplasty. This surgery combines chin liposuction and smaller incisions under the chin to tighten muscles.
      • Neck lift. This surgery, called lower rhytidectomy, involves removing excess skin or tightening the neck skin muscles to give the face a more contoured appearance.

      All procedures can reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, you may not be a good candidate for liposuction or submentoplasty if your skin isn’t very elastic and has a loose or saggy appearance. When this is the case, a doctor will usually recommend a neck lift.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      WHY DO I HAVE A DOUBLE CHIN, EVEN THOUGH I’M NOT OVERWEIGHT / HAVE LOST WEIGHT?

      Three main factors contribute to a double chin: age, genetics or weight gain. Unfortunately, fullness under the chin area is often resistant to diet and exercise, so other factors may be at play. Medical treatments can be an option, particularly if exercise and healthy eating aren’t making a difference.

      WHAT ARE THE MAIN WAYS TO TREAT A DOUBLE CHIN?

      There are currently four main treatment options to tackle unwanted fat under the chin and improve your chin profile; two are surgical, hence invasive, (liposuction and neck lift) and the other two are non-surgical and therefore less invasive (double-chin reducing injections and fat-freezing technology). Different treatments will be appropriate for different people – talking to a doctor is the best way to find out what one is right for you and to ensure any prescribed treatment is individualised for your unique facial anatomy and circumstances.

      HOW DO THE FAT-FREEZING TECHNOLOGY AND DOUBLE CHIN-REDUCING INJECTIONS DIFFER?

      Both treatments destroy fat cells but in different ways. Fat-freezing technology (or ‘cryolipolysis’) uses controlled cooling to ‘freeze’ cold-susceptible fat cells so they form crystals and then die, while double-chin-reducing injections target and break down fat cells so that they can no longer store fat.

      WHAT ARE THE COSTS OF VARIOUS DOUBLE CHIN TREATMENTS?

      Costs will vary depending on the type of treatment and between clinics - so it’s worth asking about this in your consultation. Bear in mind that price should be weighed against other important considerations such as the qualifications and experience of the doctor, how comfortable you feel with the clinic overall, and the level of care provided.

      In general, surgical interventions have a higher cost than non-surgical options. Whatever you choose, make sure you fully understand any proposed payment program before you commit to treatment.

      IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

      Because the treatments available are quite different, side effects and recovery times vary. Individuals will also react differently to treatment so talk to your doctor about what to expect. The non-surgical methods ideally should have less downtime than surgery. Your doctor will provide detailed instructions for post-operative care if you choose a surgical route.

      HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

      This is dependent on the treatment you choose. Double chin-reducing injections show visible results for many patients after two to four treatments, with some requiring up to six treatments to achieve their best results. Results from fat-freezing technology are most apparent two to three months after the treatment, as the body continues to flush out treated fat cells. With the surgical options, results are visible as healing progresses and swelling abates, which can take a number of weeks.

      HOW WILL I KNOW WHICH DOUBLE CHIN TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME?

      That’s a decision that needs to be made by you and a doctor who specialises in improving chin profiles. His/her recommendation will be based on your unique situation, factoring in your age, anatomy, preferences and desired outcome, along with the amount of fat present under the chin.

      ARE THE HAIR RESTORATIONS RESULTS PERMANENT?

      Yes, the results of hair restoration surgery are permanent since the hair transplanted from donor area are not susceptible to balding.
