What Is Under the Chin Liposuction?

Regardless of the name, double chins are actually caused by too much fat around the neck. During Under the Chin Lipo surgery at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Plastic Surgery, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Hartman will remove the fat around the neck with this minimally invasive technique to dramatically reshape and redefine the neck, chin, and jawline, helping to reduce large jowls and the presence of a double chin. Under the Chin Lipo also creates a more chiseled jawline and a tighter, more contoured throat, as well as achieving a smoother appearance by strengthening muscles and adjusting soft tissue. This procedure can diminish both small lumps or areas of fat, as well as larger treatment areas. It is a great alternative for women and men who want a slimmer neckline, a more defined chin, and an overall more youthful look. For more information about Under the Chin Lipo and how it can improve your neckline, make a consultation today with Dr. Hartman at his office in Dover, OH.

How Does Under the Chin Lipo Work?

For Under the Chin Lipo, or neck liposuction, Dr. Hartman uses a suctioning device called a cannula to suction away the pockets of fat through a tiny incision hidden just below the chin. Sometimes, he will employ the "superwet" tumescent technique, in which a numbing solution is combined with saline and other ingredients and then injected into the treatment area to help reduce bleeding. The incision is then closed with small sutures. Though Under the Chin Lipo can be done on its own, many individuals choose to have it completed along with another surgery, such as skin tightening, to create their desired result. Don't hesitate to be open and frank about your concerns with Dr. Hartman during your consultation so he can help you create the perfect plan to achieve your desired results.

How Long Is Recovery After Under the Chin Lipo?

At Fine Arts Skin & Laser, Under the Chin Lipo is done under general anesthesia (meaning you are asleep) as an outpatient procedure and can be finished in a relatively short time frame. Dr. Hartman may recommend that you wear compression garments after your surgery to help reduce swelling. Downtime may vary and could be increased if other procedures were performed at the same time. Optimal results can be expected in the few months following, but patients may be instructed to refrain from putting weight on the surgical area or engaging in strenuous physical activities for the first week. Due to the very small incision site, scarring is minimal and easily concealable.
