Sucking Out That Double Chin

I love selfies. You can make your face angular, straighten out a double chin and look just the way you would like to. But then again, life isn’t a selfie and I’ve often caught my profile in the mirror looking rather, chin-ed out.

Multiple chins or the dreaded double chin is a force to be reckoned with. Formed due to excess fat, these extra folds in our chin are often blamed on weight gain. But here’s a truth bomb – you don’t have to be overweight to have one! There are in fact several other reasons why you may sport a double chin such as genetics, loose skin and ageing.

Firstly, it’s important to know that we don’t have to live with a double chin. If exercise and other modes of weight loss are not working, a plastic surgeon could be your next line of defense.

Vaser Liposuction, used in double chin reduction, is a breakthrough treatment that uses ultrasound to break down the fat deposits before removing them via suction. Known to work particularly well for small pockets of fat, Vaser Liposuction is perfect for that hard-to-get-rid-of double chin!

Vaser Liposuction – tell me more!

The procedure involves being injected with a special solution to numb the area, so that it’s easier to access and remove the fat on the double chin area. This is followed by small incisions below the ears and under the chin where a small ultrasonic probe is inserted. The probes give off high frequency energy to shake the fat cells loose, so that they can be extracted from the double chin. This fat is then removed via a gentle, suction technique.

Will I see a visible difference?

Yes, indeed! Chiselled jawlines via Vaser Liposuction are what double chin dreams are made of. Not only does the procedure remove excess fat from multiple chins, it also works to tighten the skin on top. While final results take at least a month to show post surgery, they deliver on an attractive, youthful jawline.



What about pain and recovery after liposuction?

A procedure that requires no hospitalization, this day surgery is done under sedation, and hence is painless. The incisions made on the jawline are hidden behind the ears and are pretty inconspicuous. It takes one hour for the procedure (depending on a case to case basis) and you must allow for a couple of weeks of downtime. A specially fitted chin support is also meant to be worn for a week to ensure proper healing and recovery.

Vaser Liposuction or Chin fillers and implants?

Vaser Liposuction allows for very thorough removal of fat cells. It also aids in shrinkage of the skin giving that highly coveted, sculpted look. While Vaser Liposuction is seen as more effective than traditional liposuction, some patients may also need a chin implant or a filler to further enhance that way they look. This is especially so for those with a short chin or receding jawline.

Regardless of whether one chooses to get rid of submental fat in a double chin or fillers for better proportion to the face, it is important to consult a doctor who can help choose that path for you.
