What is this procedure?

Double chin reduction, also known as submental liposuction or chin liposuction, is a surgical procedure that aims to remove excess fat and tighten the skin in the submental area, which is the region beneath the chin. The procedure involves the removal of unwanted fat deposits to sculpt a more contoured and defined jawline.

What body part does this procedure target?

Double chin reduction primarily targets the submental area, which is the region beneath the chin. It addresses excess fat accumulation and sagging skin in this area to enhance the overall appearance of the jawline and neck.

Who is a good candidate for Treatment?

Good candidates for double chin reduction are individuals who:

  • Have excess fat and/or sagging skin beneath the chin.
  • Have a double chin that is resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Desire a more defined and contoured jawline.
  • Are in good overall health and do not have any medical conditions that may interfere with the surgery or recovery.
  • Have realistic expectations about the procedure and its outcomes.

During a consultation at PMA Dermatology, our experienced team will assess your specific needs and goals to determine if you are a suitable candidate for double chin reduction.

Why is this procedure used for?

Double chin reduction is used for the following reasons:

  1. Eliminating excess fat: It helps remove stubborn pockets of fat that contribute to the appearance of a double chin, even in individuals who maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.
  2. Improving facial profile: By reducing the prominence of the double chin, this procedure helps create a more defined and balanced facial profile.
  3. Enhancing self-confidence: Many individuals with a double chin feel self-conscious about their appearance. Double chin reduction can improve self-esteem and overall body image, allowing individuals to feel more confident in their facial contours.

How Does this procedure Work?

Double chin reduction typically involves the following steps:

  1. Anesthesia: You will receive local anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
  2. Incision placement: Small incisions are made beneath the chin or in inconspicuous locations to allow access for the insertion of a thin cannula.
  3. Fat removal: A cannula is inserted through the incisions to gently suction out the excess fat deposits from the submental area.
  4. Skin tightening: In some cases, additional techniques such as laser-assisted liposuction or skin tightening treatments may be used to improve the contour and tighten the skin in the treated area.
  5. Incision closure: The incisions are typically closed with sutures, and dressings may be applied to facilitate healing.
  6. Recovery and follow-up: You will be provided with post-operative instructions to aid in your recovery. Regular follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns.

What is the cost?

The cost of double chin reduction can vary based on factors such as the extent of the procedure, the complexity of the case, the surgeon’s expertise, and the geographic location of the practice. During your consultation at PMA Dermatology, we will provide you with a comprehensive cost estimate tailored to your specific needs and goals.
