Tired of Seeing Double … Chins? Are Your Jowls Overlapping?
Everyone wants to see and have a nice profile and a more chiseled jaw line. The aging process can really make an impact on appearances with the loss of elasticity. As we get older, the gravitational pull only leads in one direction – down. No exercise will eliminate the loose skin and excess fat that accumulates in the chin, neck and jowls.
Perfecting the profile can be an easy process with the Tumescent liposuction technique. What to do about a double chin? Liposculpture of the chin and lower facial region can help tighten the skin, remove excess fat, and restore the clean, smooth, defined profile.
Look and feel younger, refine your profile and really put your best face forward.
Chin liposuction or liposculpting is easier and safer than traditional facial and neck liposuction.
Here is how it works!
With the Tumescent technique, only a local anesthetic is used to numb the area and the patient remains coherent throughout the procedure, which is very safe and relatively painless during recovery. Two small incisions are made under the chin (one on each side) to insert the 2.4 mm cannula laser instrument, which gently melts away and vacuums the fat, while tightening the skin. Through the 2.4 mm incisions, the surgeon slowly guides the cannula to the targeted areas to remove the excess fat with precision and resulting in less pain, bruising and downtime for the patient.
All procedures are performed on site at our state-of-the-art clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. Again, Tumescent Liposuction is the safest alternative to traditional liposuction. Here are some other advantages to the Tumescent technique:
- Tumescent Liposuction is a safe, permanent, lasting procedure that eliminates fat and tightens skin around chin, lower jaw line and neck.
- The Tumescent procedure lasts only an hour or two, depending on the designated fat removal. This technique is designed to safely remove fat and tighten the area, simultaneously.
- There is very little pain after surgery, minimal incisions and little potential of scarring after the healing process.
- Since Tumescent Liposculpting is performed with only light sedation, most patients return to normal activity and work within 24 to 48 hours
What are the benefits of chin liposuction?
One can anticipate a better reflection in the mirror and no more seeing double – chins that is! The benefits of chin and lower facial liposuction are many, including a more defined profile and chiseled jaw line. Patients will immediately notice less wrinkles and sagging skin on the neck, after the swelling disappears. Tumescent liposculpting improves confidence, because patients feel younger and more attractive after they have the surgery. Chin Liposuction is a great way to sculpt and chisel your chin and neck, permanently removing fat from the area and tightening skin. Look younger, slimmer and smile more.
What should I expect from the procedure?
Tumescent liposuction or liposculpting is performed on-site in our safe, state-of-the-art clinic, so there are no additional fees. Patients are lightly sedated with a local anesthesia, so they remain awake and coherent throughout the surgery. The process is simple, patients are numbed and then two small incisions are made, one on each side of the lower face for the placement of the cannula, the small tubular instrument that acts as vacuum to remove the fat. The cannula is only 2.4 mm in size, so it leaves no unsightly scars. Throughout the procedure, the doctor will shape and contour your neck, chin, and lower cheeks. The procedure lasts only about an hour, and patients walk out of the office with boosted confidence and a smooth, youthful jaw line. Patients are not permitted to drive, however. Each patient will need to be picked up after the surgery and driven home.
Am I a good candidate for chin liposculpture?
Tumescent Liposuction of the chin, jaw and neck is ideal for men and women with a “double chin” or loose, sagging skin and excess fat in the chin, neck, or cheeks. Anyone who is over the age of 60 may need to take extra precautions and may wish to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose or lax skin. A complimentary consultation with the doctor can address any questions you may have.
Can chin Liposculpture be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely. Tumescent Liposuction of the chin can be performed at the same time as any other procedure so that you can customize and perfect your problem areas.
Will the surgery leave scars or excess, sagging skin?
Only one or two small incisions are necessary for the procedure and each is only 2.4 mm wide. These incision marks heal very quickly after the surgery and scarring is usually not an issue, because they are so small and they fade to the blend into the natural color of the skin. People below the age of 60 with good skin tone will not experience sagging skin after the surgery, which is another benefit of the Tumescent liposuction technique. This procedure is designed to promote skin tightening as the fat is removed. Unless your skin is already very thin, wrinkled, or lax due to aging or dramatic weight loss, you will usually see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. Older patients and people who experience considerable weight loss actually pursue Tumescent liposuction as a solution to sagging, flabby skin.
What are the post-surgery side effects?
Patients may only experience slight discomfort, and the procedure itself is virtually pain-free. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure and return to work in a day or two.
All patients need to commit to wearing a compression garment similar to a headband continuously for 72 hours in order to minimize bruising and swelling.
Some patients may experience swelling and bruising after the procedure, some may not. Mild swelling may occur in the lower face and jaw line for a week or more. With Tumescent Liposuction of chin, there are no stitches and the tiny puncture wounds will naturally close within two days. You can continue to wash and shave your face normally after the first 24 hours.
