Chin or submental liposuction tightens the muscles under the chin. In doing so, this procedure minimizes the appearance of a double chin and enhances the contours of the chin.
In many cases, chin liposuction may be undertaken along with a neck lift, facelift, and/or chin augmentation. The combination of chin liposuction and a neck lift, facelift, and/or chin implants can make significant improvements in the overall facial appearance of a patient.
The med spa treatment provider will offer the patient in-depth information on chin liposuction during the pre-operative consultation. In addition, they will answer any questions that the patient may have regarding this procedure to enable them to develop reasonable expectations from chin liposuction.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides chin liposuction treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Benefits of Chin Liposuction
- Minimizes the appearance of Double Chin: Chin liposuction is a proven and safe procedure to eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
- Improves the Jawline: This procedure helps create a more sculpted jawline.
- Reduces Neck Fat: Chin liposuction makes it easier to minimize fat in the neck area, enabling a more natural transition from the neck to the jaw line.
Chin Liposuction Recovery
It is common for patients to experience inflammation and bruising after chin liposuction. Most patients are able to resume work in one week after the procedure.
The patient will typically wear a head-wrap after double chin liposuction to keep pressure under the chin. The head-wrap helps reduce chin swelling and enables the skin to conform to the new neck contour properly.
Kybella Injections for Chin Reduction
Kybella is the first and only injectable procedure for the reduction of a double chin that has received FDA-approval.
This treatment has been a boon for thousands of patients who want to eliminate excess chin fat that creates the appearance of a double chin and adversely impacts their chin profile.
People who do not want to undergo liposuction or another surgical option may choose Kybella non-surgical med spa treatment.
Kybella has been designed to address the appearance of a double chin in a non-surgical manner. It has received approval from the FDA after extensive trials. This treatment is non-surgical yet offers patients highly effective results. Therefore, patient satisfaction rates with Kybella are quite high.
An international clinical development study was conducted to determine the efficacy of Kybella. The program spanned over 20 clinical trials with 2,600 patients worldwide.
More than 68 percent of patients reported a positive response to Kybella in pivotal Phase III studies. The patients experienced a reduction in fat in the submental area. Many patients also reported emotional benefits due to this reduction in chin fat.
The Kybella treatment plan is customized according to the specific needs of an individual patient. It is delivered through injections directly into the targeted submental fat deposits.
One Kybella session can last for nearly 15 to 20 minutes. A majority of patients will need two to four treatment sessions to accomplish desirable results. Up to six treatment sessions may be necessary in severe cases.
