Factors such as weight gain, weight loss, and aging can sometimes result in a double chin that compromises your facial profile and overall appearance. Having a sagging chin can make you look and feel older than you really are, and impact your confidence and self-esteem.
Schedule a consultation with Monarch Plastic Surgery to learn more about Kybella injections and other cosmetic treatments that can help reduce double chins.
Fortunately, there are several cosmetic treatments that can help reduce and improve your double chin so you can feel happier and more confident about the way you look.
Liposuction can remove fat from your chin
This popular body contouring procedure removes unwanted pockets of fat from specific areas on your body, including your chin. The goal of liposuction is to reshape and improve your chin contours so you can look slimmer and more youthful. During this procedure, your plastic surgeon makes a tiny incision just underneath your chin to remove fat and create a more defined jawline.
Smartlipo uses a laser to remove excess fat
Smartlipo is similar to traditional liposuction in that it removes excess pockets of fat, except Smartlipo uses a laser to melt the fat, while liposuction uses a suction device. Smartlipo also tightens your skin at the treated site for improved contours. Ask your plastic surgeon about the possibility of combining Smartlipo with traditional liposuction for the best outcome.
A facelift can reshape your chin
A facelift is a surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that reshapes excess fat and skin, and tightens underlying muscles in your face and neck. A facelift is ideal if your goal is to address loose, sagging skin such as a double chin, and can help you feel and look younger and more refreshed.
Alternately, opt for the Monarch Mini Facelift, which is a minimally invasive in-office procedure that helps reduce or eliminate your double chin through liposuction and the tightening of sagging skin.
Kybella injections can reduce your double chin
Kybella is a prescription medicine that can be injected directly into the chin to reduce or eliminate a double chin. Kybella destroys the fat cells in your chin, and prevents them from storing fat again after treatment. Patients usually start seeing noticeable results after just two treatments, but may require up to six treatments for the best results.
To find out which double chin treatment is best for you, talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon about what you hope to accomplish. Your plastic surgeon can discuss your treatment options and make recommendations on procedures that can best help you achieve your ideal look.
