Weight gain, aging, heredity, and environmental and lifestyle factors can cause excess fat to build up under the chin and jowls. A double chin – a major aesthetic concern among both men and women - is usually difficult to address with just diet and exercises. Double chin liposuction in Manhattan is an ideal option to address the concern. In leading plastic surgery facilities, plastic surgeons use the laser-assisted Smartlipo Triplex workstation to perform the procedure. This minimally-invasive laser-assisted technique removes excess fat effectively and tightens the skin to provide a well-defined, toned jawline.

The FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation comes with three powerful laser wavelengths –1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm. Laser energy is delivered via a minimally invasive cannula to precisely target and melt the excess chin fat so that it can be easily suctioned off. The workstation’s intelligent delivery systems - SmartSense™, ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™, ensure reliable and controlled energy delivery.

Double chin laser liposuction offers several benefits  

·         Needs only local anesthesia

·         Speedy recovery

·         Long-lasting results

·         Performed as an outpatient procedure

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Chin Liposuction?

To experience the benefits of Smartlipo chin liposuction, you must be a good candidate for the procedure. Chin liposuction is a suitable option for a person who meets the following criteria –

·         Is in good health

·         Has excessive deposits in the chin and neck areas

·         Have firm elastic skin and good muscle tone

·         Is not substantially overweight

·         Is not taking medications such as aspirin, non-steroidal, and anti-inflammatory drugs

·         Does not smoke

·         Is ready to cut down alcohol consumption

·         Has realistic expectations about the outcome

It is important for patients to correctly follow all the post-operative instructions given by their plastic surgeon. The final results and healing time will vary based on individual considerations. Slight swelling and bleeding can be expected in the first 24 hours after chin liposuction, which will subside soon. Typically, patients are able to return to work the day after the procedure and resume normal activity within three days (when the swelling has lessened). Most patients recover fully after a week. Patients may be advised to sleep with the head elevated by at least 30° and wear a chin compressive garment during the recovery phase to minimize swelling.
