When submental fat increases under the chin, it can impact the shape of your face and neck. The dreaded “double chin” can appear regardless of your weight or age and cannot be reduced by diet or exercise if you are not overweight. Genetics, hormones and other factors can result in a chubby chin; but there is a solution. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Back Bay Plastic Surgery offers chin liposuction to slim the chin and neck at our clinic in Boston, MA.
When there is excess fat under the chin, it can make the face look heavy and older. Some young individuals have double chins, even though they are at a healthy weight. Double chins become more likely with aging, hiding the definition of the chin and jawline and creating a thicker neck. Removing the excess submental fat under the chin and on the neck can make a significant difference in the lower face and neck appearance. Liposuction is ideal for slimming the chin and neck, when the patient still has good skin laxity.
Eliminate Your Double Chin
Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is a liposuction specialist, using the most advanced techniques to reshape features with fat removal and fat transfers. If you have excess fat under your chin, you can eliminate your double chin with liposuction. The chin liposuction procedure is ideal for patients with a double chin or neck fat that are a healthy weight. Using a small incision, a cannula is inserted into the chin area to loosen and remove submental fat. It is important that the patient still has good skin elasticity. If the skin is loose, a neck lift would need to be performed with liposuction to restore a firm, tight chin, jawline and neck.
Chin liposuction can reshape your lower face and neck if you have excess fat stored under the chin. The results can be amazing, transforming your facial appearance.
