Double Chin - Cosmetic Surgery


In men the neck, jowls and under the chin can be successfully sculptured to give a more youthful appearance. Of all the areas of the body which can be treated with liposculpture, the neck can be the most rejuvenating. Many people will comment that you look younger without even realising just why.

Fullness in the neck and under the chin can be very resistant to dieting, and is surprisingly common even amongst young people. It can be hereditary and usually increases with age. Liposculpture to the chin can greatly improve the look of the face, and even though only a small amount of fat is removed the improvement in appearance can be dramatic. Many people feel as though their face looks much younger after the treatment and friends and relatives comment on their rejuvenated appearance, not even realising that any procedure has been performed.

Jowls are small areas of fatty tissue in the lower part of the face just on the other side of the chin. It is possible to reduce or eliminate these areas by careful liposculpture to the face from the same small (2mm) incisions just below the jaw. The lower border of the face looks much cleaner adding to the rejuvenated look.

Even if not much fatty tissue is removed with liposculpture and the skin of the neck appears loose, liposculpture will allow the skin to contract and so take on the shape of the jaw and the muscles of the neck.

Anyone who has loose skin and fatty tissue in the neck is a candidate for neck liposculpture. The procedure works well for people with a "double chin", for many people with a heavy jowl area and lower face and for people who lack definition to the lower jaw.

Some people have loose neck muscles ( platysma ) or sometimes there is not a sharp angle between the angle of the jaw and the neck. These people will benefit from neck liposculpture, but it may need to be combined with B0t0x injections or a Contour thread lift. The reduction in the size of the neck is permanent, even if your weight changes substantially.

The small access holes are 1-2mm wide. There are usually 2 per side and these settle very quickly. They are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks.

A special light elastic neck garment is used for the first few days after the procedure and then at night only for a further 4 nights.

Most neck liposculpture procedures take from between 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours to complete.

In general you should plan on taking 1-2 days off work or slightly longer if your work is active. It would be about 1 week before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.
