Liposuction of the chin

Ideal procedure to get rid of localized pockets of stubborn fat under the chin (double chin)



About Liposuction of the chin

Chin liposuction can dramatically improve your jawline. During this surgical procedure, our surgeon will sculpt the area by removing unwanted fat from specific areas such as your chin (double chin). Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.

Liposuction is suitable if you have localized pockets of stubborn fat that refuses to disappear, despite your best efforts. The result? A long-lasting sculpted jawline!

What happens during a local liposuction treatment?

You may be a candidate for this treatment if you have a ‘double chin’ that you cannot seem to get rid of.
Liposuction of the chin can be performed under local anaesthesia, which numbs the affected area only. The local anaesthesia is often used along with sedative medication to keep you more relaxed during the procedure. The surgeon will make a small incision that makes the scar nearly imperceptible, creating a natural result once healed. He will then vacuum the unwanted fat by pushing a cannula back and forth. Once the fat is removed, your surgeon will stitch the approximately 3cm incisions back together.

The procedure will take about 1 hour.

The results of a chin liposuction

The result of a chin liposuction treatment is a contoured and more defined jawline.

The fat cells that are removed during the treatment, cannot regenerate. So the results are long-lasting. However, we do recommend our patient adjust to a healthy lifestyle after the surgery in order to maintain an optimal lasting result.

Liposuction of the chin in combination with Bichectomy

Liposuction of the double chin can be combined with the bichectomy treatment. This is the ultimate long-lasting face slimming treatment. It not only contours the cheekbones, but it contours your jawline as well. Your surgeon can perform these two procedures together so you can benefit from the same recovery period and a package policy of our clinic.

This treatment is ideal for candidates that cannot seem to get rid of stubborn fat under the chin and of the cheeks.

The result of this treatment is more drastic than the bisechtomy by itself but in a natural and long-lasting way. It will create a “V-shape” and a slim face.

Recovering from liposuction of the chin

Essential Aesthetic will provide you with a comprehensive post-operative care service. Here are a few details you should take into the account during your recovery from a chin liposuction treatment:

  • The skin will be swollen after the surgery and there will be bruising. It can be painful, but painkillers will provide relief.
  • The compression bandages need to be worn day and night for 3 to 7 days.
  • If you stopped smoking before the surgery, keep it up for a few more weeks. Smoking increases the chance of skin breakdown.
  • The scars will be red for the first few months and will then gradually take on the same colour as your skin. It is advised you keep the scars out of the sun in the first year.

Safety through precautionary measures

Once you have decided on liposuction, we will provide you with a patient information document. Please read it carefully. The doctor will provide you, in addition to the general advice, with instructions that are specific to you based on your health and living conditions. The general advice is summarized below.

  • Stop smoking four weeks before surgery and do not start again for at least 2 weeks afterwards. Smoking slows wound healing and increases the risk of infection.
  • Do not take blood thinning medication before surgery.
  • Do not forget to arrange your transport home. You cannot drive yourself after the surgery as it is forbidden by law because of the medication.
  • Keep your head tilted, as it helps to reduce swelling.
  • Make sure you have a cooling package at home.
  • Intense sports are not recommended for the first 6 weeks after the surgery.

Risks and complications of a chin liposuction

There are risks and complications with each surgery. Liposuction of the chin is a simple procedure however with reduced chance of complications.

Possible complications are:

  • Allergic reaction to anesthesia, disinfectant
    and plasters
  • Ungainly scar (scar correction is a possibility)
  • Nerve damage
  • Risk of skin breakdown for smokers.

Other alternatives

If you want to get rid of stubborn fat under the chin without undergoing a surgical procedure, the Belkyra treatment might be something for you.

Belkyra works on the basis of deoxycholinic acid, a substance that is naturally present in our body and is responsible for breaking down fats. It is injected carefully in multiple areas under the skin, taking about 30 minutes in total.

The injectable treatment can also be performed on numbed skin, so our team can take the time to anaesthetize your skin with numbing cream beforehand.

The end result is visible 4 weeks after the treatment. To get the best result, you need an average of 3 to 4 treatments. During your no-obligation consultation, you agree with the cosmetic doctor on how many treatments are the best for you.
