Double Chin Correction
Double chin is one of the most prevalent aesthetic concerns, especially among women. Weight gain can lead to neck sagging, which is characterized by drooping of the lower portion of the chin. While double chin is easy to form, it is exceedingly difficult to ‘fix’ it by yourself once it has occurred. Double chin correction surgery involves removing loose skin and excess fat from the neck area to remove the jowl. It removes excess fat under the skin with liposuction.
You will look younger and slimmer with jowl surgery such as chin liposuction or neck lift. Sculpt the area, remove excess oil and smooth the skin with these treatments. However, these techniques must be implemented appropriately and consistently. All these issues may be resolved quickly and painlessly with double chin correction. In recent years, many men and women have turned to chin fat removal as a kind of cosmetic surgery.
Suitability for Double Chin Correction
Depending on the individual, sagging and how the double chin is formed and dealt will be different. Some people see it as a mass, while others see it as a drooping limb. Whatever your facial characteristics, if you have a double chin, you're going to be in the shadows when it comes to aesthetic appeal. As a result, the look of the face is badly affected by fat beneath the chin.
After Double Chin Correction
It is normal to have some pain, swelling and bruising after double chin correction. Some people complain that their skin is tight. After a few days these effects subside and last for about two weeks. It may take several months for the surgical site to fully heal. A few weeks after the surgery, patients can return to their normal activities. Neck lift recovery is usually slower than a chin lift. Our surgical team will give you instructions after your surgery and recovery.
Double Chin Correction
The Double Chin occurs in the area from the chin to the underside of the neck. Effects such as excessive fat deposit, sagging and wrinkles on the Double Chin area make the person appear older than she/he is. This kind of sagging, fat deposits etc. effects can only be eliminated thanks to the Double Chin Esthetic Procedures.
Often the fat deposit caused by excess weight and its sagging over time are seen in both men and women, but it is more common in women due to skin structure.
In Which Conditions Is Double Chin Esthetics Procedure Performed?
• Sagging in the Double Chin region in the case of excessive weight gain and loss,
• Sagging caused by gravity in older people,
• The sagging of the Double Chin due to the relaxation of the neck muscles in this region,
• Advanced age, sunlight, smoking,
• Genetic predisposition.
Is there ideal timing for this procedure?
Performing double chin esthetic procedure at early ages affects positively both the complexity and the outcome of the surgery. In the advanced age, however more sagging and loosening may occur. As a result, initial problems that can be solved with a small procedure may be replaced by complex operations.
For these reasons I have listed above, if there is a complaint of double chin in the middle ages, which we call 30’s, the procedures will be less complicated. At the same time, the result will be much more satisfactory as skin elasticity is much better than advanced age.
What are the techniques that we apply to solve the problem?
The recently developed Deoxycholic Acid Injection is a good option for those who do not want to undergo any surgical procedures.
The 30s are generally the ages when Double Chin deformities begin, the most frequent complaint of these periods is excess fat deposit, rather than sagging.
As I mentioned above, since the skin elasticity of the Double Chin area is better in these age groups compared to older ages. The excess fat is taken with the method called liposuction
under local anesthesia. The remaining skin will recover (recoil) in time and will gain a desired esthetic appearance. In this method, the patient does not stay at the hospital.
As the skin has lost its elasticity, Liposuction of Double Chin to be made after the age of 50 may not be sufficient to solve the deformity. Because the deformity at these ages is not only excess fat deposit but also sagging. If I believe that the saggy / excess skin will not recover by itself (it can be easily understood by examination whether excess / saggy skin can recover after liposuction) I may also add skin removal procedures to the liposuction.
Platysma, which is a superficially located muscle along the neck, gets loose / sags due to the increase in age and causes vertical neck bands. Corset Platysmaplasty can be added to the procedures to be made through a cut under the chin to correct this midline vertical neck band.
Operation and Early Period of after Operation
Operation takes 1 to 4 hours depending what it is done exactly. If I only perform Liposuction to the young patient, I would not prefer the patient to stay in the hospital. If there is additional Neck Lift, overnight staying in hospital would be necessary. There may be drain tubes at the surgical area, which will be taken off within a day or two after surgery.
Regardless of the operation to be performed for Double Chin, the garment will be applied to prevent a possible blood accumulation in the region where the procedure is performed and recoiling of the skin works more properly. This garment will remain for 2-3 weeks depending on the procedure / procedures to be performed.
Redness, bruising and edema are expected in this region for the first few days, it is normal. There are no restrictions on eating and drinking and no stitches to be removed, the stitches will be absorbed by the body over time.
Pain is not the important complaint at the recovery phase. As soon as drains will be taken, you may go to your daily life.
