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.

"I am a 36 year old mom of 4 boys before meeting with Dr. Hartman my body, self confidence, and mental health were destroyed and I was dependent on 3 medications for depression/anxiety. I am currently on ZERO!! Let me tell you, Dr Hartman and staff at Fine Arts Skin and Laser are hands down simply Amazing! I went in for my consult very skeptical, scared, and ashamed of my body, but I came out with my self confidence boosted, a load of knowledge, and ended up scheduling my surgery a week later. I had my procedure at the end of that month--high def lipo in multiple areas (inner thighs, abdomen, love handles, bra roll, & under chin) living fat transfer, tummy tuck, and laser hair removal all on surgery day. Since surgery I have had lymphatic drainage massages, laser scar removal, Jeuveau, lip filler, Opus Plasma laser, and henna brows just to name a few and I couldn't be happier with my results (physical and mental). Dr H. and staff were awesome and answered all of my questions- good, bad, and ugly and made me feel comfortable, they were very upfront with me and told me all of the risks (every surgery has risks). They informed me that my body may reject some of the fat transfer, and that my stomach may end up with "cones" on my sides from the tummy tuck healing. I love how honest they were, and didn't sugar coat anything. Dr H and staff are real, upfront, honest and my kind of people. From the bottom of my heart thank you guys, thank you for giving me my confidence and my life back."- B.B. / Google / Nov 03, 2022
"Simply amazing, I highly recommend for your skin care needs! Fine Arts was recommended by a friend, I was reluctant to make the drive but purchased a package of their express facials and have been very pleased. I have been working with esthetician Nikki, she does an amazing job! The entire staff is professional, friendly, and very helpful! Fine Arts is worth the drive!"- B.D. / Google / Oct 20, 2022
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.
