As a result of either weight gain, aging or even genetics, we can be pre-dispositioned to have a double chin. But, it doesn’t mean we have to live with it.
At Sculpt cosmetica, we can offer double chin and neck rejuvenation if required.
The process is simple, we can use liposuction procedure take away the excess fat from the area. This will provide a permanent fat reduction result. For many patients, this will change their entire face silhouette.
If you have excess skin, we can “lift” some of this skin with threads that are inserted under the skin. This is known as a “Thread Lift” procedure, it is safe, simple and relatively quick. Combination of both of these procedures will tighten and revitalise the neck and chin at the same time.
With this procedure and potentially combining with a thread lift, we can address many concerns such as;
When we gain weight, our fat cells enlarge. They will increase in size due to excess oil within the actual fat cell. When we lose weight, the fat cell still remains there, it just decreases in size because the oil within has reduced. So, we can consider fat cells as ‘containers that hold oil’.
When we perform liposuction or liposculpture, we physically remove these containers full of oil.
Real People, Real Results.
The procedure involves provision of anti-anxiety medications as well twilight sedation. You should be a in a comfortable position, relaxed, rather drowsy but able to listen to instruction. You will then be given a local anaesthetic to numb the area where we are removing your body fat. The procedure shouldn’t cause any discomfort due to the anaesthesia.
From this point we will simply harvest your fat, the incision points are very small. Typically only 1 to 2cm in width, they do not require stitches. We aim to place the incisions in discrete locations. For a the double chin liposuction procedure we will commonly create 2 incision locations. Of course this varies from patient to patient, procedure to procedure.
On completion of the procedure, you will be moved to our patient recovery lounge to rest and sleep. The sedative can take a few hours to wear off, but generally, patients are ready to go home about an hour after the surgery. You should be able to walk out of the surgery, but you may feel dizzy and lightheaded.
Our team will discuss with you our set of post-operative care instructions to encourage the healing process.
