Chin
liposuction

You don’t need a double chin, as a regular one makes your face and neck look more aesthetic and proportionate. We’ll help you fix that.

The chin area often accumulates excess fat deposits, i.e. unattractive folds. They make your neck look shorter, while your facial contours get blurry. A double chin is one of the most common cosmetic problems which can be caused by a variety of reasons. Chin liposuction is the key correction method.

Double chin liposuction is a procedure which aims to remove excess fat tissue through small incisions, i.e. skin punctures. This surgery helps remove the folds under your chin and make your facial contours clear. According to the classic chin liposuction technique, the surgeon destroys your fat cells using mechanical vibrations being produced by the cannula, which is connected to a vacuum apparatus, and suck out them through the incisions. Today’s plastic surgery employs light and efficient types of tumescent chin liposuction.

In some cases, especially with large amounts of fat, surgeons use ultrasonic liposuction. Exposed to ultrasonic waves and certain vibrations, your fat cells turn into a liquid emulsion which can be easily removed through small punctures. Also, you can undergo chin liposuction using a combined technique where several aspects are factored in. Surgeons tap into this technique when they need to remove large amounts of fat or highly dense deposits.

Chin liposuction takes a single procedure and makes sure you enjoy a lasting effect. The duration of surgery depends on the technique and the number of fat deposits. Today’s chin liposuction techniques offer various important benefits, e.g. almost invisible scars after skin punctures.

Our experience

Before

surgery

At the consultation, our expert diagnoses the cause of your double chin. After that, he/she decides on the extent of liposuction and prescribes tests you need to have before surgery. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with chin plastic surgery.
During

surgery

When performing liposuction, the doctor puts you under general anaesthesia to make sure you won’t feel anything. The procedure takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Our expert makes small incisions and removes excess fat deposits. At the end of your surgery, the doctor will apply a compression bandage.
After

surgery

Recovery doesn’t take long. You’ll spend a day at Medical Club Grace. The doctor will remove your bandage in seven to ten days after liposuction. Swelling subsides by the end of the third week. You’ll notice the first results in a month.

Q&A

Will the scars be visible after the incisions?

Chin liposuction leaves small scars: from 3 to 5 mm in size. Over time, your scars will become almost invisible.

At what age can I undergo chin liposuction?

If there are aesthetic indications, you can undergo chin liposuction from the age of 18. At the consultation, our experts will examine you and check whether you’ve got any contraindications. If you’re healthy, our experts will schedule your surgery.

When can I return to work?

Our experts recommend that you rest for two to three weeks without overloading your body. Therefore, you should return to work once such period is complete. Please note that you’ll have to wear a special compression bandage for two to three weeks after chin liposuction.
