Due to advancing age, structure or frequent weight gain and loss, fat and a sagging appearance are observed under the chin. A thick double chin is quite uncomfortable for both men and women. Sometimes patients may have a chin that contains thick fatty tissue, even though they are usually thin.

Although there are many non-invasive methods for fat tissue in the jowl area, the results of most of them are temporary. The results of removing fat from the chin area with chin liposuction will be permanent.

During Surgery

Local anesthesia is applied before the procedure. After local anesthesia, a small incision is made in the jowl area, just below the chin, and cannulas are placed. Very fine-tipped liposuction cannulas are used to remove fat. Excess fat is removed from the area by vacuuming with the help of cannulas.
People generally shy away from this surgery because it is a surgical operation. However, it should be preferred because both the application sequence and the recovery period are very comfortable. Especially people who do not have time to do sports for a long time and cannot diet can have it done. In order to achieve the mentioned comfort, it is important to choose a surgeon who is an expert in bichectomy.

Some important points about double chin liposuction are:

The procedure is usually short-term and you can be discharged on the same day.
Swelling, bruising and mild pain are normal after the procedure. These usually subside within a few days.
The healing process may vary from person to person, but usually takes a few weeks. It is important to follow the instructions given by your surgeon.
A special chin strap may need to be worn for a period of time after the procedure. It is important to use this tape regularly.
Results usually begin to become apparent after the procedure, but full results can be seen after the swelling has completely subsided. Results are individual and may be affected by lifestyle factors.
Because double chin liposuction permanently removes fat cells, the results can be long-lasting. However, adopting a healthy lifestyle helps maintain results.

Healing Process

Liposuction performed on the chin area begins to heal in as little as a week. Using a corset during this process will reduce the recovery time and provide you with a better result at the end of this period. At the end of 1 week, spontaneous tension begins due to the procedure performed on the chin area. Over time, this stretching makes the chin look better and more shaped.
