DOUBLE CHIN LIPOSUCTION
Surgery: Localized fat deposits in the submental region aspire.
Associated Surgeries: Bichectomy, Chin Implant, Rhinoplasty, Liposuction.
Perhaps one of the areas that most affect the person’s jowls. Fortunately there is a solution neck liposuction. For this procedure we use very thin cannulas, specially designed for this. Remove excess fat and skin hope retract and help define the angle of the neck. The results are spectacular. We use local anesthesia. The surgery is ambulatory, prescribe antibiotics and anti-inflammatory. You must use a strip of necks for two weeks to ensure good skin retraction.
The goal of this surgery is the refinement of the contour of the lower third of the face and neck by removing fat deposits under the jaw and submental region, this helps to raise the profile and mark the outline of the jaw giving an aspect more youth to the rest of the face. It is done through a small incision in the skin under the chin, a saline solution with anesthetic and adrenaline is infiltrated. It sucks and removes the fat with special cannulas of small diameter.
This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and usually lasts 15-30 minutes. If necessary sometimes recommend placing a chin implant incision advantage, this significantly improved the results obtained in the profile.
Common side effects of liposuction include bruising, swelling, pain and numbness. Scarring will vary per individual based on hereditary factors that affect skin healing, but because the incision for chin liposuction is so small it will usually be veyr miniml.
Most common side effects last for a brief period of a few weeks. Depending on the area of the body that was operated upon, limited mobility may also be a temporary side effect.
In some rare circumstances complications may arise due to liposuction surgery. Patients undergoing liposuction should be aware that infection, skin necrosis, contour irregularities and burns are all possible complications.
As chin liposuction does not require general anesthesia and is for a small area on the body, it is one of the safest liposuction procedures with a very low chance of complications.
Recovery and Post-Operation
After the operation, the surgeon may suture the incisions closed or leave them open to allow draining of the wounds. The incisions should be dressed with gauze that is changed frequently.
The relatively low invasiveness of chin liposuction allows for patients to avoid the typical long recovery other anesthesia-related liposuction requires.
Many patients may immediately return to work after chin liposuction. It is recommended that patients wear a compression garment under the chin in the days following surgery.
This should be considered part of the recovery time if the use of a compression garment would inhibit work or strenuous activity. Sutures or stitches may be removed after about five to ten days.
Prescribed or over-the-counter medications may be used to treat pain. Swelling, bruising and numbness may subside within a few days or take as long as a few months.
The human body has a determinate number of fat cells that grow or shrink with varied amounts of caloric intake and exercise. Liposuction removes some of the fat cells in an area of the body resulting in an immediate smaller contour.
Due to the fact that some fat cells remain, a client without a good diet or healthy amount of exercise, may stretch out remaining fat cells in time, resulting in a less permanent result.
Those patients maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will enjoy continued smaller contours.
