Chin Liposuction & Tightening
Removing a “Double Chin”
Chin liposuction and tightening is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure that removes fat from under the chin, tightens the sagging chin, removes a “double chin,” and restores the jaw line to a more fit and youthful shape. Reducing fatty deposits in this area of the face is impossible through exercise and diet, which is why chin liposuction and tightening surgery is oftentimes the solution.
Chin liposuction is one of the least invasive plastic surgery procedures. The recovery period is short and the actual chin surgery lasts less than one hour. Results are quick and well surpass any diet or workout plan. After the patient receives anesthesia, Dr. Sinha will make a small incision in the chin, then lift the underlying skin tissue and use a cannula (suction device) to remove the extra fat causing the jowls or double chin. If needed, further tightening can be accomplished by repeating this process from additional angles.
Recovery from Chin Surgery
The chin will initially take a sagging, swollen look immediately after surgery, but this will subside within two weeks. Results are a tightened, more attractive jaw area that bears no sign of a double chin. Pain medication can be prescribed if needed for soreness. Sutures from the small external incisions underneath the chin are removed 5-7 days following the procedure. Additional follow-up may be necessary depending on the patient and patients are advised to avoid heavy exercise for two weeks post-op. Patients will be educated on the use of antiseptic rinses and foods to avoid as well as chin massage techniques to facilitate the recovery process.
