Are You Living With A Double Chin?


Double or full chins are common. Some people are genetically predisposed to excess chin fat, while other people develop it as they get older or as a result of weight gain. Chin liposuction is an effective procedure for restoring a defined, taut neck and chin contour.

What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat from below your chin. During the procedure, fat is broken apart and then suctioned away. You may want to combine the procedure with another one to tighten the loose skin.

The procedure is completed with tumescent liposuction. Tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area. The fluid contains lidocaine to numb the area and epinephrine to prevent excessive bleeding. Tumescent fluid also causes the fat to become swollen and firm, which makes the removal of it more efficient.

Are You a Good Candidate for Chin Liposuction?

Women and men both want to have a slimmer facial profile, and chin liposuction can help them achieve their goals. Good candidates for chin liposuction are,

  • In generally good physical health
  • Committed to maintaining a stable body weight
  • Prepared with reasonable expectations of what the procedure can and cannot achieve
  • Unhappy with excess chin fat or a double chin
  • Interested in achieving a better-defined neck, chin, and jaw contour

They also need to be ready to learn about and understand all of the risks and benefits of the procedure. Dr. Miller at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery will cover this and more during your initial consultation.

What are the Potential Side Effects of a Chin Liposuction Procedure?

Side effects from the procedure are rare and typically minimal if any occur. You may experience some pain, bruising, and swelling but it usually resides after a few days. Some more serious side effects to watch for include,

  • Temporary numbness
  • Hematoma
  • Improper wound healing
  • Contour irregularities

Dr. Miller will go over these and any additional risks before your procedure.
