The Permanent Solution To a Double Chin

Double chins can be caused by a few different factors, including genetics, weight gain, and natural aging. When excess fat and skin build up under the chin, it can ruin the profile and make patients look older and less fit.
There are many ways to get rid of a double chin; one of the most effective and long-lasting is chin liposuction. Chin liposuction involves a surgeon removing the excess fat cells in the neck with liposuction. Because the fat cells are completely removed, the results of the surgery are permanent.
Who is a good candidate for chin liposuction?
Anyone who is overall good health, at a stable weight, and has a double chin is a good candidate for chin liposuction. The best candidate is someone whose double chin is caused by fat build up rather than by loose and sagging skin.
How do I know if I am too young for chin liposuction?
Chin liposuction is more popular among older people who want to prevent their neck and chin from giving away their age. However, chin liposuction is also suitable for younger people in their 20s and 30s if they want to get rid of their double chin. Many younger people inherited the family chin or are trying to lose weight and come to Qazi Cosmetic Clinic to improve their profile.
Is this procedure suitable for men?
Yes! Chin liposuction is very popular among men in Orange County, CA. Chin liposuction is the best way for men to restore their jawline and improve their profile permanently.
Can I combine other cosmetic surgeries with chin liposuction?
Chin liposuction can easily be combined with other anti-aging procedures, such as a neck lift, a face lift, facial implants, or a brow lift. A neck lift may also be used in conjunction with chin liposuction to reduce the risk of sagging skin after the lipo. This method keeps your neck looking lean and youthful.
What do I have to do to prepare for chin liposuction?
All patients are instructed to stop smoking and taking blood thinners 2 weeks before the procedure. The surgical team will also gives patients specific instructions, such as avoiding certain medications or herbal supplements.
Will the procedure be painful?
No, the surgery is normally performed under general anesthesia. After the surgery, some swelling and discomfort is normal. This can be mitigated with medications and will go away in 1-2 weeks.
How long until I see the results?
It is normal for the results to be obscured by some swelling and bruising. Some patients may see an improvement immediately after the surgery. The results will be visible after the chin heals completely; this can take 4 to 6 weeks. After 6 months, the results are final and patients can enjoy their new profile.
What can I expect for the recovery?
Immediately after surgery, the skin on the neck and chin will feel very tight and swollen.
All patients are instructed to apply antibiotic cream to the treated area, change the bandages frequently, and avoid sun exposure. Most patients are safe to return to work and other normal activities after 2 weeks.
What is the difference between chin liposuction and a neck lift?
Chin liposuction involves the removal of only the fat cells under the chin. A neck lift is similar to a facelift. It involves a surgeon removing excess skin and tissues from the neck and chin to reduce the appearance of sagging skin. Some patients undergo chin liposuction and are left with lots of sagging skin, so a neck lift may be required to fully restore their jawline.
What are the risks and side effects of chin liposuction?
Some risks of chin liposuction are asymmetry, complications from anesthesia, bleeding, changes to skin sensation, infection, nerve injury, scarring, and excess swelling. There is also the potential risk that the surgery does not achieve the desired results. In rare cases, a second procedure is necessary to achieve the desired results.

Will I have visible scarring after an arm lift?
The extent of the scarring after an arm lift will depend on the surgical techniques used and how much extra skin is removed. Advanced surgical techniques can be utilized to hide and minimize scarring. Every patient is unique, so patients must talk to Dr. Qazi and the surgical team to discuss how visible scarring can be minimized.
