Are you struggling to get rid of a double chin? Over time, fat can begin to accumulate under the chin, causing it to sag downwards. This creates the impression of a double chin, and it can sometimes be difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise alone.
While there are no medical risks associated with a double chin, it can cause a great deal of embarrassment. It can also impact the overall aesthetics of the face.
The good news is, there are ways to eliminate a double chin once and for all. Here, you will discover some of the best treatment methods for getting rid of a double chin both surgically and non-surgically.
What surgical treatment options are available?
There are several surgical options you have to help get rid of a double chin. The right choice for you will depend on the root cause of the problem. For example, is it just fat or is there excess skin too? If there is excess skin, you can have a treatment that addresses this too.
Let’s look at some of the most common surgical treatment options to fix a double chin…
Liposuction is one of the most effective treatments to get rid of a double chin. It targets the area specifically, sucking out a small portion of fat. A tiny incision will be made beneath the skin, then a tube will be inserted to suck out the fat.
The procedure is typically carried out under local anaesthetic. You will be able to return home the same day, though you should rest for up to a week to allow the body time to heal.
A mini facelift
If you also have lines or wrinkles to contend with, you may find a mini facelift is the right choice. This procedure is a lot less intensive than a full facelift, yet it can give the face a much more youthful appearance. If your double chin is mostly caused by excess skin, this procedure should address the problem.
You may find a full-face lift is the most effective option, depending upon the results you want to achieve.
If you don’t need to correct any other signs of aging, a neck lift could be an ideal way to get rid of that double chin. The purpose of a neck lift is to correct sagging skin, tighten up the muscles, and improve the overall contour of the area. It can effectively eliminate a double chin and is a less intensive procedure than a facelift.
