Benefits of Chin Liposuction

There are few things more aging than a sagging chin. If you have looked in your mirror recently, and said to yourself, “When did I get all that skin under my chin?” Then you need to know about the benefits of chin liposuction. It’s a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that gets rid of chin fat without scarring, bruising or side effects.

No one has to go through life with a sagging chin or a jowly appearance. There are many benefits of chin liposuction. It removes excess fat from your chin, refines your jawline, improves your silhouette, and even reduces neck wrinkles because it tightens your skin.

Before performing chin liposuction, Dr. Craig E. Berris will examine your chin, jawline and neck to determine to what extent your skin has loosened. Ideally, you will have fat deposits, but not a great deal of sagging skin – if you do, other procedures may work better. Also, if you are over the age of 60, you may need to consider additional tightening procedures – chin liposuction alone may not deliver the results you want.

The ideal candidate for the benefits of chin liposuction is between the ages of 26 and 40, with good skin tone despite the excess fat in the chin, jawline and neck.

Chin liposuction is performed using either a local or general anesthesia, and you will be able to go home the same day. It is a relatively minor procedure in which your plastic surgeon makes a couple of small incisions under the ears and in the chin. Then, the skin and tissues are lifted, and a cannula is inserted into the incisions and used to suck out fat. During the procedure, the surgeon also does contouring so that you can achieve the maximum benefits from your chin liposuction.

The procedure usually takes less than an hour, and there are minimal side effects. You may experience a bit of swelling and pain, but these are usually easily managed with analgesics. Overall, the benefits of chin liposuction far outweigh the side effects.

To encourage effective recovery, you should sleep with your head raised for a couple of weeks, and avoid solid food for the first two days. You should also avoid vigorous exercise for two weeks.
