Chin Liposuction Atlanta

Chin Liposuction

What is chin liposuction?

It is the removal of fat under the chin that can give you the appearance of having a double chin. With a simple chin liposuction procedure, the localized fat deposits can be removed with little downtime.

Getting older, putting on a little weight, or even just genetics can leave your chin, neck, and jawline flabby, sagging, and less defined than you want. But, chin and neck liposuction can give you the sleek profile you want and the added confidence that goes with it.

It is an easier process than a facelift, does not require sutures, and with SmartLipo, the doctor can perform contouring procedures to make your chin and face appear slimmer.

Liposuction can effectively target the stubborn fat deposits in your double chin or jowls and is the fastest, most efficient way to make your jawline look more chiseled.

Because unwanted fat rarely responds to exercise and diet, this liposuction technique is the perfect way to finally be rid of it for good, giving you back the defined jawline you had in the past.

Chin lipo is often combined with a neck contour procedure.

 

Chin Liposuction

How does chin liposuction work?

Chin liposuction is a simple minimally invasive procedure done under tumescent local anesthesia. It only requires a few tiny incisions to give you transformational results. It does not require general anesthesia or expensive plastic surgery. It is well suited for younger patients.

At Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic, chin liposuction is performed under local tumescent anesthesia. The patient first receives mild oral sedation.

Small incisions in the skin are made to introduce the tumescent anesthesia.

The surgeon uses small cannulas and the SmartLipo Triplex laser to contour and removes fat cells in the submental area. The use of SmartLipo enables the best skin tightening possible. It allows the doctor to balance facial features and reduce the appearance of loose skin.

The local anesthetic wears off after a few hours. The results will start showing as the new collagen tightens the skin.

The chin liposuction is a very easy procedure. Most patients can return to work the very next day

We advise patients to organize transport from the clinic because of the remaining effects of the sedative.

Who is a candidate for Submental Liposuction?

To determine if you’re a good candidate for chin and neck liposuction to reveal a sleek, defined jawline, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Am I in good health?
  • Am I at or close to my ideal weight?
  • Does my skin have good elasticity to help it bounce back after liposuction?
  • Do I have realistic expectations of the results I can expect to see?

If your answer to these questions is yes, chin liposuction could be the perfect choice to get the transformative results you’re looking for so that you can feel more confident every time you look in the mirror.

Both men and women are good candidates for chin liposuction if they don’t have significant medical problems. Removing fat under the chin and the jawline makes a significant improvement in one’s appearance. It can improve the dimensions of the face and appear more youthful. The Smartlipo Triplex laser adds another level of control and skin tightening to the procedure and aids in maximum skin retraction.

What is the recovery time after the procedure?

Most patients can experience mild discomfort after the procedure for 2-5 days. It is recommended that you rest for 1-2 days after the procedure. You will be wearing a facial compression garment, and that will help with the discomfort. Most patients can return to work the next day.

What kind of results can I expect after the procedure?

After the procedure, you will have swelling for about 2 weeks. The SmartLipo laser treatment will help with skin tightening for 2-3 months after the procedure. You may notice results sooner than that in some cases. The final results are complete anywhere from 3-6 months after the procedure is completed. Most of our patients are very pleased with their new appearance.

Chin liposuction removes excess fat to restore a defined jawline.

It can help you get rid of:

  • A double chin
  • Sagging jowls
  • Fat deposits along your jawline

Particular Chin Lipo Risks

  • Neck tightness
    It’s normal to experience neck tightness after chin lipo. Depending on the patient, the tense/tight sensation may last for up to a few months after surgery. We provide our patients with specific instructions and other resources (like medication) to minimize neck tightness issues after the procedure.
  • Bruising, swelling, and numbness
    Slight bruising and swelling are expected after any liposuction procedure. Patients wear compression garments after surgery to minimize swelling. Bruising usually disappears within the first-week post-op. Swelling disappears gradually over the course of a similar time period. Numbness and skin sensation alterations aren’t as common as swelling and bruising, but it’s still a normal side effect to experience after the surgery. Typically, normal skin sensations return within a month, but occasionally, numbness or nerve irritation persists.

What is the average cost of the procedure?

The price for liposuction includes:

  • Pre-op labs
  • Facility Fee
  • All operative anesthesia and medicine fees while at our clinic for your procedure.
  • The procedure performed by a board-certified surgeon
  • Your Compression Garment
  • All follow-up visits

The procedure costs vary depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed and the patient’s size. The beginning cost for the chin liposuction procedure is $3,900. The SmartLipo laser in this region provides our patients with a more defined and sculpted look.
