Is my double chin correction right for me?
Double chin correction surgery is done to remove the additional fat under the chin and possibly with a transition under the jaw and neck. These patients ideally benefit from contouring using gentle liposuction under local anaesthesia with or without mild anaesthesia.
In group 1 patients, the skin on the front of the neck is aggravated and the platypus manifests with lateral displacement of the muscle. These patients benefit from what is called platysmaplasty in combination with sensitive liposuction and lipectomy. This procedure causes a small incision behind the natural crease under the chin and can be performed safely under light anaesthesia as a one-day procedure under local anaesthesia. The beauty of a platysmaplasty to correct a double chin is that the results are usually quite impressive and safe. Platysmaplasty is usually an integral part of a full neck lift. In your case, this was done as a separate procedure back in the day. A specialized platysmaplasty usually does not burn the bridges of future neck mechanisms.
Patients with laxity and significant jerking of the skin, double chin, and platysmal bands. These patients are often candidates for a full neck lift. Each patient should be examined and evaluated based on their individual anatomy and expectations. Double chin correction makes a big difference in the perceived age and aesthetic appearance of the patient.
How does double chin correction surgery work?
Double chin correction or chin liposuction works by inserting a small tube called a cannula into the chin at various points. With gentle suction, strategic small amounts of fat are removed from each area. The result is a smoother, less fat profile under the chin.
Submontoplasty works by making small incisions under the chin, as well as liposuction on the neck.
When lifting the neck, your surgeon will make incisions behind the ear and sometimes under the chin, removing excess skin and tightening the neck muscles.
Procedures for double chin correction surgery
The following are some basic steps for beard liposuction:
- Your surgeon will examine your chin and neck and mark the areas where you insert your cannulas with a pen.
- The skin is thoroughly cleansed with an antiseptic solution designed to reduce the risk of infection.
- The surgeon then injects anaesthetic drugs, if desired, or local anaesthetics (anaesthetic drugs) into the skin.
- Then, they make several small incisions in the skin large enough to insert the liposuction cannula.
- Next, they will insert a liposuction cannula and use a back-and-forth or fanning motion to remove excess fat. They pay close attention to the amount of fat that is removed from each area to ensure a smooth facial appearance.
- Finally, a bandage is applied as needed. It usually has a special chin strap to provide support when the skin is healing.
Incisions in the skin are made during submentoplasty and neck lift surgery. Some of the most common stages of neck lift surgery include:
- Your doctor will mark the areas where the chin and neck are marked with lines and arrows.
- You will then be given medications through an IV or general anaesthesia for the procedure.
- The area is cleaned with an antiseptic solution. Depending on the anaesthesia procedure, your doctor may or may not inject a local anaesthetic into the skin.
- Next, your doctor will make incisions, usually in the hairline and around and behind the ear. Then they can remove excess fat and skin from the neck. They can also tighten the platysma or neck muscle to make the skin look tighter.
- Finally, they cover the skin incisions with glue or strips (strips). These piercings usually heal and disappear due to a person’s hair.
With submentoplasty, there are fewer incisions and the doctor does not remove excess skin when the neck is lifted. Instead, a doctor will tighten the neck muscles and give them a more sculpted look.
What to expect after your double chin correction?
Most of our patients reported that they felt the process was more painful. Our patients describe some discomfort and, in rare cases, some tension. Patients have some swelling and bruising that gradually disappears from the first days to weeks. Most lesions go away 10 to 14 days after your procedure. At the same time, swelling and edema are reduced. Injuries and inflammation vary from patient to patient, and we can provide information on preoperative and postoperative care. The compression cloth supports the healing process and the result during your recovery.
