Double Chin and Neck Liposuction
Submental fullness or a double chin can take a toll on your self-confidence, especially when it results from factors that are beyond your control, like anatomy, hereditary reasons, or airway positioning. In fact, according to studies, 68% of people will experience this problem at some point in their life.
Fortunately, undergoing liposuction in this region is one of the most satisfying experiences as the results of a leaner neck can be seen immediately. The motivations as to why our patients come from this procedure often differ from person to person. However, the main reasons our clients come for this procedure are – having a better appearance around the chin area, balancing out the facial features, and contouring the face in general.
Whatever your reasons for opting for the procedures are, the added benefit for neck liposuction is that it slices off a couple of years from the patient by contouring the jawline and neck. Well, who doesn’t want to look younger anyway? Better yet, getting rid of the double chin via liposuction also gives the appearance of some lost weight, and standing in front of a mirror will be something to look forward to.
To achieve your desired look, you need to go to a trusted facility with qualified staff who have had decades of experience in the field. That’s exactly what we offer at our clinic.
The Procedure at LHCSC
At our liposuction centre, neck liposuction takes a short time to perform, usually an hour or two at most. Our team uses local anaesthesia instead of general anaesthesia during the surgery, and laughing gas may also be used to ensure that the experience is as comfortable as possible. Three tiny incisions will then be made on the chin crease to create access points to the unwanted fat. A cannula will then be inserted into the incisions to loosen the fat deposits that will be suctioned out.
For neck liposuction, our liposuction specialist uses the Notational Infrasonic Liposuction technique, which employs careful attention to detail to prevent any damage to surrounding tissues. We will also touch up on parts of the face and neck to create proportion. The whole procedure takes less than an hour, and you’ll be ready to paint a brilliant smile on your face whenever you look at yourself in the mirror.
However, in case there’s any excess skin left as a result of the surgery, our team is well equipped to recommend skin-tightening procedures such as subdermal radiofrequency. We always strive to achieve the best results possible and to have patients walking out with a smile, knowing that they can recommend our services to friends and family.
Alternatives To Neck Liposuction
We usually carry out a full assessment of the patient to check for eligibility, reduce any risks associated with the procedures and discuss any other options that may be on the table. For example, for patients who are a bit advanced in age and have some loose skin on the neck, we may recommend a neck lift surgery (Cervicoplasty) instead of liposuction.
