Do you hate looking in the mirror because of your double chin? It is a problem that can affect anyone, male or female, large or small. You do not need to be overweight to have a double chin. In fact, many people who have slim physiques still find their chins are problematic. The problem is that dieting and exercise will not do much to eradicate the excess fat. There is a limited amount you can do to tone the chin. Reducing fat through dieting is impossible. So, could liposuction of your double chin be the solution?
Why Do I Have A Double Chin?
For many people, the cause of their double chins lies in their genes. Genetics has a key role to play in the amount of fat that accumulates across the body. It also determines whether it will be resistant to exercise and diet. Some people suffer from sagging necks because of fat that deposits below their jawbones. The good news is that lipo can resolve the problem and improve the appearance of your neck and chin. It will not just make your chin look slimmer and more chiseled. It will also make your neck look longer and your profile more refined.
Does Lipo Work on The Chin?
Most people associate liposuction with the thighs, buttocks, and stomach. However, it is perfectly possible to have lipo on your double chin as well. The results are surprisingly good, and the procedure is not especially uncomfortable. As long as you choose the right cosmetic surgeon and are a good candidate, you should see a good outcome.
Exercise has virtually no effect whatsoever on the chin area. This is why liposuction is such a popular choice. A surgeon can remove the double chin by making a small incision beneath the chin. He or she then inserts a narrow cannula. As the cannula sucks away the fat from between the muscles and skin, small tunnels form. These collapse after the procedure. The result is a slimmer contour and no more double chin.
Here at Artistic Lipo and Plastic Surgery, we carry out chin liposuction under a local anesthetic. As a result, patients have a short recovery time. They can return home the same day and will quickly be able to return to their everyday activities.
What Are the Risks of Chin Lipo?
Liposuction of the double chin is very effective, and there are a few side effects. Some commonly experienced side effects include pain, swelling, numbness, and bruising. None of these should be severe and will subside within just a few days. Rest assured that the chances of scarring are very minimal. The incision is extremely small and, therefore, the chances of a bad scar are extremely slim.
Chin lipo requires only a local anesthetic. Since it is only carried out on a tiny part of the body, it is a very safe procedure. The chances of any complications are very low. This is especially the case if you choose a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon.
