How to Get Rid of a Double Chin

Having a double chin is definitely frustrating – especially when you can’t seem to get rid of it.

And you’ve tried.

From diets and exercising to skin creams and serums, it feels like you’ve used every method under the sun to minimize the appearance of a double chin. But as it turns out, a double chin isn’t always the result of your lifestyle; many people are genetically prone to carrying fat around the jawline and underneath the chin.

That’s why it can be so hard to treat your double chin. And that might leave you with this pressing question: “How can I get rid of a double chin?”

Get Rid of a Double Chin with Neck Liposuction

A neck liposuction treatment is an excellent choice for people who suffer from a double chin as a result of:

  • Age
  • Loss of skin laxity
  • Stubborn or dense fat tissue
  • And more

Neck liposuction involves manually removing the fat tissue around the jawline and chin area, leaving behind a more contoured and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Neck liposuction can be combined with non-surgical or surgical skin-tightening procedures, which is a good choice for patients who may not have the best skin laxity.

And if you’re worried about noticeable scarring, there’s good news there: Neck liposuction incisions are typically made right underneath the chin. They’re so small, in fact, that any resulting scarring is hidden from the naked eye.

Good Candidates for Neck Liposuction

You’re a good candidate for a neck liposuction procedure if you’re a healthy nonsmoker who is frustrated by the appearance of a double chin.

The best candidates should follow a healthy lifestyle, as a neck liposuction treatment can remove existing fat, but not prevent the formation of new fat tissue.

Finally, good candidates should have mild to moderate skin laxity, as liposuction may worsen sagging skin in patients with poor skin laxity. If you fall into the latter category, you can combine your surgery with additional skin-tightening treatments to achieve optimal results.
