Liposculpture Can Work For Double Chins

 Liposculpture removes fat from the treated area. If you'd like to remove fat from underneath the chin, you would need to have your dermatologist remove it from there. The fat will not shift simply because it has been removed elsewhere. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologist to find out how to treat all of the areas you desire.

Will Liposculpture to the body remove fat from the chin, or will i have to do chin lipo? (Photo)

Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. This is the surgical procedure that revolutionized cosmetic surgery becoming one of the most performed cosmetic procedures. Subcutaneous tissue or fat is removed in order to contour the body in a way that is harmonious and pleasing to the senses. It can be performed in almost all regions of the body such as the neck, chin, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, arms and ankles. Usually done through a small incision in the skin through which a cannula connected to a vacuum is applied, it can be performed alone or in combination with other procedures. After liposuction your body is going to be really swollen for at least 2 to 4 months after your surgery. It is important for you to wear your compression garment for at least 6 months, the first 3 months 24/7 and then the last 3 months at least 12 hours per day for your body get use to not having the faja for so many time. When you remove it, your body can get swollen and also you can have pain. Remember to also compress your body to prevent a seroma which is an accumulation of liquid that has to be drained, it is hard to touch and also really painful. Bruises are completely normal for almost 3 months from surgery, that’s why is better for you to use a bruising cream and apply it all over your body 3 times a day. To prevent bad circulation and swollen legs, use compression socks. Brazilian butt lift can be performed with the same procedure and for a month it will be swollen and it will drop a little bit without losing it’s shape if you use your garment.. If you’re going to perform liposuction on your inner, outer, anterior, lateral, postetior thighs, be careful and consult with your surgeon what’s best for you, sometimes we have more extra skin than fat, that can cause severe sagginess on our legs, which can be only be reversed performing a thigh lift….

Chin liposuction

To remove fat from your chin, you would need liposuction or weight loss. Liposuction affects the areas treated.

Liposuction effects

In order to remove fat from under the chin you would need to operate on that area specifically.  However, if you have liposuction of the body and diet and exercise, you will lose fat everywhere, including areas that were not suctioned.

Liposculpture of the body will not remove fat from the chin

Hi Steph, thank you for your question. Performing  liposuction or liposculpture on your body will not effect your chin or neck in any way.  However, if you are interested in having body contouring, there can be a financial advantage for you to have both procedures performed at the same time.  Liposculpture of the chin can be performed with a very small cannula and the incision area can be nearly undetectable.  There are also several non-surgical techniques that can help reduce fat in the chin area such as Ultherapy, which uses ultrasonic technology to lift the skin, and Exilis Elite, which uses radiofrequency technology to help dissolve fat and tighten the skin.  Please look for a board certified plastic surgery familiar with these various techniques and technologies to determine which procedure may be the best for you.

Chin liposuction

Hi Steph:

The certified doctor that you will contact, if you ask for it, probably can make you the chin liposuction in conjuntion with the liposculture. It is not a problem do them together. Your doctor only have to be sure that your blood levels are ok.

It was a pleasure to answer your question, and choose a certified plastic surgeon.

Will Liposculpture to the body remove fat from the chin, or will i have to do chin lipo?

  Liposculpture to the body will improve the way your body looks, but the chin will have to be liposuctioned as well to improve the chin area.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of liposuction and liposuction revision procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
