Double Chin Reduction: What You Need to Know
While many of us would like to see a streamlined profile when we look in the mirror, some of us have excess fat that creates a double chin, also called submental fullness. A double chin can result from a variety of causes, including hereditary factors, weight, anatomy, and airway positioning. If you have a double chin, you’re unsatisfied with, you’re not alone — as many as 68 percent of people are in the same boat, according to the Indian Society for Dermatology.
Dr. Afsha Haji, a specialist at the Bliss Skin Clinic for Facial and Skin Treatment in Bandra, Mumbai discusses traditional procedures for getting rid of a double chin and a new, increasingly popular alternative.
What is double chin surgery?
Our Doctor and our expert panel members use a variety of procedures to remove a double chin. These procedures include:
• Liposuction: This procedure removes fat from beneath the skin and sculpts the chin and neck contour. “We make a small incision under the skin, insert a tube and suck out the fat,” says Ishii. Liposuction typically requires an only a local anesthetic to numb the general area.
• Face-lift: This surgery allows our doctors in Bandra, Mumbai to remove fat and loose, saggy skin around the chin and neck, removing a double chin. “Most people are asleep under general anesthesia, though it is possible to do with a local anesthetic,” says Dr.Afsha Haji.
• Neck-lift: Different types of neck-lift procedures aim to remove extra skin (cervicoplasty) or tighten neck muscles (platysmaplasty) to improve the contours of the neck and chin. Doctors often combine a traditional face-lift with this procedure, which may cause a tight feeling in the neck for several months.
After any of these procedures, you can expect to experience about 10 to 14 days of bruising and swelling. The general anesthesia used for some double chin surgeries poses serious risks for some people with serious health conditions.
Deoxycholic Acid: A Nonsurgical Alternative to Double Chin Surgery
One recent development in anti-aging science is deoxycholic acid, an injectable treatment for a double chin. “Deoxycholic acid is a substance the gallbladder uses to dissolve dietary fat,” says Ishii. “Injecting this chemical into the skin beneath the chin melts fat there that the body then reabsorbs.”
This nonsurgical approach requires several treatments spaced out over several weeks. Most people receive two or three treatments, but it can take up to six treatments, depending on the patient and the amount of excess fat in the treatment area.
