Kiss Your Double Chin Goodbye
The double chin is a common complaint. Using liposuction to remove the small pocket of fat under the chin can have a tremendous impact on the profile by creating a more defined jawline.
Small amounts of fat are removed through tiny incisions using a cannula and suction. The procedure may take as little as 30 minutes under local anesthesia with sedation, unless combined with a more extensive procedure.
A single stitch may be all that is required to close the incision, and it is typically removed after three or four days. A compression bandage may be worn until the day after surgery, and most patients experience minor bruising and discomfort that can be controlled with over-the-counter medication.
