Stubborn fat in various areas of the body is a common aesthetic concern among men and women. When fat builds up under the chin it is called a double chin. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), double chin is an aesthetic concern that affects 67% of Americans. Submental fat can affect both men and women and is caused by factors such as aging, weight gain, genetics, and poor posture. Liposuction is the best solution for this concern. Though traditional liposuction can remove unwanted fat under the chin, it requires general anesthesia, long incisions under the ears and in the chin, and even in the mouth, as well as long recovery time. As a result, many people hesitate to go under the knife. Smartlipo double chin liposuction in NYC allows you to achieve your chin contouring goals without surgery. This minimally invasive laser-assisted procedure is performed using local anesthesia, comes with little pain and downtime, and provides excellent outcomes for the right candidate.
Laser lipo performed using the Smartlipo Triplex workstation is far less traumatic than conventional liposuction surgery. Also, while chin liposuction surgery can only get rid of excess fat, it can leave behind loose, sagging skin, Smartlipo comes with superior skin tightening properties. Laser chin liposuction in New York City firms the jaw line, improves the appearance of neck and rejuvenates your face. Moreover, this innovative treatment is one of the best techniques to create better facial proportions.
The FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation is designed for safe and efficient fat removal. It comes with three powerful laser wavelengths–1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm. Laser energy is delivered via a minimally invasive cannula to precisely target and melt the excess fat, allowing it to be easily removed. The three powerful laser wavelengths work together to also tighten the skin and restore its natural shape. The device also has unique intelligent delivery systems – SmartSense™, ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™, to provide reliable and controlled delivery of energy. As it does not generate too much heat, Smartlipo is a great option to treat delicate areas like the chin.
The key benefits of laser-assisted chin liposuction are:
- The tiny Smartlipo cannula allows the surgeon to target the excess fat safely and precisely
- The device’s intelligent delivery systems are designed to prevent overtreatment
- The treatment can be performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia
- Only tiny incisions are involved
- Reduced surgical trauma
- Minimal pain, bleeding and discomfort
- Since bleeding and bruising is minimal, pain and swelling is minimal, making the post-op period much easier to handle
However, even if the procedure is minimally-invasive, not everyone is an ideal candidate for chin laser liposuction. Individuals considering double chin liposuction in NYC should be carefully evaluated by a reliable plastic surgeon. This is important to determine if their objective of achieving a natural, slender and sleek shape to the neck can be achieved. Generally, chin liposuction is a suitable option for candidates who are healthy and have a good facial structure and firm muscles. Patients who have loose extra skin can improve outcomes with a chin tuck along with their liposuction treatment. In a chin tuck, the excess fat and skin is removed surgically and the skin is pulled tautly across the neck.
If the liquefied fat is suctioned out properly, Smartlipo laser liposuction results will be visible in a few weeks’ time. However, if fat is left back, your recovery could take a longer time. So, if you are considering chin liposuction in New York City, make sure you have a skilled liposuction surgeon perform the procedure. The best option would be to choose an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery facility dedicated to providing Smartlipo laser liposuction treatment.
Such practices offer the services of surgeons who are skilled and experienced in using Smartlipo Triplex technology, which can make a big difference to your outcome.
