Are you irritated with excess skin and fatty tissue under your chin? Is this making you feel embarrassed or self-conscious? Having extra fat under your chin a lot of the time is naturally occurring due to age or genetics. Even if you are very healthy, fit, and eat a decent diet, this isolated fat can be hard to get rid of. If you are ready to feel better about your chin and facial profile, the following are a few options offered at Center for Plastic Surgery to get rid of that double chin.
One of the procedures for removing a double chin is to get liposuction on the neck. Liposuction is a common procedure done to help remove excess fatty tissue from specific points on the body. It involves using a small tool to disperse and loosen the fat cells and then drawing it out with a surgical cannula with suction. This can be done on the neck to help remove fat, making the neck more contoured to fit your face shape. This is a really good option for younger people because the skin elasticity can help to contour the neck and make it look smoother and firmer. Following the procedure, the patient may take a couple weeks to be able to return to full daily activities in case of swelling and numbness.
Kybella is an injectable treatment made of synthetic deoxycholic acid which is naturally occurring in the body and helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. By injecting this into the chin area, it kills the fat cells and reduces the fullness of the skin underneath the chin. This is a long-term solution after the treatment is done because the cells can no longer store or accumulate fat in that area. The number of treatments you need will be based on the amount of excess skin and fat under the chin as well as your aesthetic goals.
The CoolMini is a noninvasive procedure to help get rid of the fat cells in problem areas. The procedure is done by using applicators that lower temperature in the treatment area, causing the fat cells to crystallize and die. This is all done with no harm to your skin and surrounding tissue. This procedure can be done in as little as thirty minutes and over a period of a few treatments will start to show you the results you want. This is a good option for those already in good health and who have good skin elasticity. This treatment will help you get rid of that extra fat under your chin that makes you look heavier than you are.
