Chin Liposuction

 

Perfecting your profile isn't easy. As we get older, age, genetics, and weight can take their toll on your jawline. And the bottom line is, you can't exercise away the loose skin and excess fat in your chin, neck, or jowls.
What to do about a double chin? Liposculpture of the chin can help tighten the skin, remove excess fat, and restore the clean, smooth, defined jawline typical of youth. Now you can look the way that you feel - younger - and really put your best face forward.


A chin Liposculpture procedure at Houston Smart Lipo Centers is easier and safer than traditional neck liposuction. First, a local anesthetic is used to numb the chin. Then, a laser is used to gently melt the fat directly under the skin and to encourage skin-tightening. Incisions are then placed under the chin, allowing the doctor to remove excess fat. The cannula used to remove the fat is only about 2.4 mm wide - slow, gentle movements mean less pain, less bruising, and a rapid recovery time for patients.

  • Tumescent Liposuction is a permanent, lasting procedure that removes fat and tightens skin around the jawline.
  • Our back Liposculpture procedure is designed to reduce fat and tighten skin.
  • Since Tumescent Liposuction of the chin is performed with only light sedation and takes only an hour, most of our patients are back at work in one or two days.

What are the benefits of chin liposuction?

 

A more defined jawline. An improved profile. A reduction in skin laxity and wrinkles on the neck. Improved confidence and a more youthful appearance - need we say more? Chin Liposuction at Houston Smart Lipo Centers is a great way to sculpt and chisel your chin and neck, permanently removing fat from the area and tightening skin. Look younger, slimmer, and smile more.

 

 

What is the procedure like?

 

The Liposculpture procedure is performed in our offices under local anesthesia - all patients remain awake and alert.  First, the skin is numbed and two or three small incisions are placed under the chin.  Using gentle suction, fat is removed using a gently vibrating cannula, or straw-like instrument.  The cannula itself is only 2.4mm wide- about the size of a strand of cooked spagetti - and won't leave any unsightly scars.  Throughout the procedure, the doctor will shape and contour your neck, chin, and lower cheeks. The procedure lasts only about an hour, and patients walk out of the office with boosted confidence and a smooth, youthful jawline.

 

 

Am I a good candidate for chin Liposculpture?

 

Tumescent Liposuction of the chin is ideal for men and women with a "double chin" or loose, sagging skin and excess fat in the chin, neck, or cheeks. Anyone who is over the age of 60 may need to take extra precautions and may wish to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose or lax skin.  A complimentary consultation with the doctor can address any questions you may have.

 

 

Can chin Liposculpture be combined with other procedures?

 

Of course. Tumescent Liposuction of the chin can be performed at the same time as any other procedure so that you can customize and perfect your problem areas.

 

 

Will I have any scars or sagging skin?

 

Tumescent Liposuction at Houston Smart Lipo Centers uses a very small tube (cannula) to remove fat and will not leave any unsightly scars. The puncture sites will naturally close within a day or two, fading into the surrounding skin.

 

When combined with Smart Lipo, Liposculpture is designed to promote skin-tightening and restore collagen.   Unless your skin is already very thin, wrinkled, or lax due to aging or dramatic weight loss, you will usually see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. 

 

 

What are the post-op procedures?

 

Patients normally experience only slight discomfort, and the procedure itself is virtually pain-free.  You will be able to walk immediately after the procedure, continue physical activity immediately, and return to work in a day or two. 

 

All patients need to commit to wearing a compression garment similar to a headband continuously for 72 hours in order to minimize bruising and swelling.

Some patients may experience swelling and bruising after the procedure, some may not.  Mild swelling may occur for a week or more.  With Tumescent Liposuction of chin, there are no stitches and the tiny puncture wounds will naturally close within two days. You can continue to wash and shave your face normally after the first 24 hours.
