The Procedure

How Double Chin Correction Works

Double chin correction procedures enhance facial harmony, restore a youthful appearance, and boost self-confidence. The choice between surgical and non-surgical options depends on factors such as the extent of correction needed, individual preferences and the surgeon’s recommendations. Consulting with a qualified healthcare professional is essential to determine the most suitable approach for achieving the desired outcome.

Procedure Overview

Double Chin Correction typically involves a minimally invasive procedure to remove excess fat. Our skilled surgeon use precise techniques to sculpt the chin and neck area, ensuring a harmonious facial profile.

The double chin correction procedure typically involves the following key steps:

  • 1

    Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. During this consultation, the individual's medical history, aesthetic goals, and the specific characteristics of the double chin are assessed.
  • 2

    Anesthesia: In most cases, double chin correction is performed under local anaesthesia. This ensures that the patient remains comfortable throughout the procedure while allowing for a quick recovery.
  • 3

    Liposuction: Liposuction is the primary technique used for double chin correction. Small incisions are made beneath the chin, and a thin tube called a cannula is inserted to suction out excess fat. The surgeon sculpts the area to achieve a more defined and contoured neck and jawline.
  • 4

    Recovery: The recovery period for double chin correction is generally swift. Patients may experience swelling and bruising, but these side effects typically subside within a few weeks. Patients can often resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.
