Getting rid of a stubborn double chin on your own can be fairly difficult. Unlike other areas of the body, excess fat beneath the chin may persist despite diet and exercise. This can be frustrating because a double chin can significantly affect your facial appearance, making you appear heavier than you are. Dr. Lisiecki offers a personalized chin liposuction in NYC to remove excess fat deposits from underneath the chin, helping you achieve a more sculpted facial profile.
What is chin liposuction?
Chin liposuction, or submental liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess fat from the area beneath the chin and neck. It involves making small incisions and using a thin tube called a cannula to suction out the unwanted fat deposits. This procedure is minimally invasive and can provide a more defined and contoured jawline, eliminating the appearance of a double chin.
The benefits of chin liposuction:
- Removes excess fat under the chin
- Enhances jawline definition
- Provides a more youthful and contoured facial appearance
- Minimally invasive procedure — only involves one or a few small incisions
- Short recovery time compared to more extensive surgeries
- Long-lasting results
Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized chin liposuction technique
Chin liposuction is a precise and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that Dr. Lisiecki can perform to address your concerns. Your chin liposuction in NYC begins with a thorough consultation, during which Dr. Lisiecki will assess your individual needs and discuss the expected outcomes. He curates the treatment plan according to your specific goals to ensure natural-looking results and comprehensive management of your concerns. Dr. Lisiecki typically performs chin liposuction under local anesthesia for comfort and convenience, though it can be performed under sedation or general anesthesia if that’s your preference.
After administering anesthesia, Dr. Lisiecki strategically makes small incisions, often less than a quarter-inch in size, beneath the chin and/or behind the ears. Through these incisions, Dr. Lisiecki inserts a thin cannula, a specialized suction device, to carefully remove excess fat deposits from the targeted areas. The cannula’s gentle movements break down the fat, making it easier to suction out. Once the desired contour is achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures. Chin liposuction may be combined with other procedures, such as jawline filler, chin implants, and radiofrequency skin tightening, for optimal results in some patients. It is also a simple procedure to add on to many other aesthetic procedures.
Recovery after a chin liposuction surgery
After undergoing your chin liposuction in NYC, it’s essential to be prepared for the recovery process to ensure optimal results. In the immediate post-surgery period, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the treated area. This is entirely normal and should gradually subside over the next few days to weeks. Dr. Lisiecki will provide specific instructions on how to care for the incision sites and manage any discomfort.
You may be required to wear a compression garment to support the healing process and reduce swelling. Please follow Dr. Lisiecki’s post-operative guidelines to promote a smooth recovery. While you can typically return to light activities within a few days, more strenuous exercise and activities should be avoided for a few weeks to allow your body to heal properly. The results will gradually emerge over several weeks or months, so patience is key.
