There are two different types of treatments for Double Chin Removal:

1.Micro liposuction

Micro liposuction for double chin removal is an effective procedure for reducing the excess fat around the chin and neck area. This procedure involves local anesthesia, adrenaline and injecting salty water into the area to be treated; this is known as Tumescent Fluid. Tumescent fluid not only numbs the concerned area but it also causes the targeted area to become swollen and firm which helps separate the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. A small incision is then made and fat is removed using Microcannulas. On average around 10-20ml of fat can be removed through this process which is often more than enough to reduce the appearance of a double chin.

The patient sees an instant change in the shape to his/her lower face after the procedure but ideally, it takes 3-4 weeks for swelling to reduce and your final results to be seen.

As fat cells have been removed, the results of this procedure are permanent however the patient will have to keep to his/her ideal weight. The downtime associated with this procedure is minimal with many patients returning to work after 48 hours and many feel able to return to their usual activities within 7 days.

2. Neck Lift

A neck lift or Lower Rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that can re-arrange and enhance the appearance of jawline and neck. The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia and incisions are made under the chin and behind the ears. (The process of making incisions varies depending on the technique chosen by the doctor.)

In this process of Neck lift for double chin removal, the platysma muscle is tightened and any excess skin or fat is removed. The incision lines are then closed.
