Double chin treatment, also known as submental fat reduction, is a procedure to reduce excess fatty tissue in the area of the double chin. A prominent double chin can make the face look disproportionate and detract from the aesthetic appearance. The treatment can help to achieve a slimmer and more defined profile.
There are several methods for double chin treatment, including non-surgical options such as injections with fat solvents or cryolipolysis (fat freezing), as well as surgical procedures such as liposuction or fat removal using a surgical incision.
In surgical double chin treatment, also known as liposuction, a small incision is made under the chin or below the angle of the lower jaw to access the excess fat tissue. A suction technique is used to remove the fat and reduce the double chin. This method usually requires a shorter recovery time compared to more invasive surgical procedures.
The choice of the appropriate method depends on individual factors such as the extent of the double chin, personal goals and the patient’s preferences.
Double chin treatment refers to various procedures that aim to reduce excess fat or loose skin in the area of the double chin and achieve a slimmer and more defined appearance.
There are both surgical and non-surgical methods for double chin reduction. Surgical options include liposuction and fat removal through a skin incision technique. Non-surgical options include injecting fat dissolvers (Kybella) or using cryolipolysis procedures.
Recovery depends on the type of treatment performed. For non-surgical procedures, recovery can be minimal, while surgical procedures require some recovery time. However, most people can usually return to their normal activities within a few days to weeks.
Possible risks include temporary swelling, bruising, tenderness or numbness in the treated area, and infection or adverse results. It is important to consult an experienced medical professional and discuss the risks and possible side effects in advance.
