Who is the ideal candidate for a double chin liposuction?
The ideal candidate is a man in good physical health who has an excess of fat under the jaw area and wants to remove this annoying tissue and wear a slimmer face. The double chin makes the man’s face look much thicker and makes him look out of proportion if viewed in profile or from the front. Also, your body weight should not exceed 30% of your ideal weight.
Men interested in double chin liposuction should not be over 40 to guarantee an optimal result due to the elasticity of the skin. It is important that, to proceed to the intervention, the area to be treated is not flaccid or with excess skin, since, otherwise, it will be necessary to use another type of treatment and surgery.
Double chin liposuction, what is it?
This quick and easy procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and with local anesthesia and / or sedation. It is performed through a small incision in the neck through which a liposuction microcannula is inserted to aspirate the fat subcutaneously, using a tumescent method that requires the injection of fluids while removing the fatty tissue from the area. This helps dissolve the fat so that it can be removed more easily and reduces post-operative pain and the appearance of bruises. Since it is a very fine cannula (2-3 mm.), The posterior scars are almost imperceptible. Sometimes it is necessary to make other incisions behind the earlobe, the scars of which are also invisible.
There are candidates with a short neck, narrow jaw, or very flabby skin that may require double chin liposuction combined with another procedure to remove excess skin such as a neck lift.
