A double chin or excess fat under the chin and jawline affects the definition of the lower face and neck. This is a common aesthetic concern among both men and women. Chin liposuction in Manhattan is an ideal procedure to achieve a well-defined jawline and natural shape to the neck. This minimally-invasive laser liposuction procedure removes unwanted fat beneath the chin, lifts sagging jowls, tones the neck area and tightens the skin to provide a well-defined jawline.
In leading Manhattan plastic surgery practices, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia using FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex. This laser assisted workstation is designed to allow surgeons to remove excess fat from hard to delicate areas such as the cheeks and jowls, chin, and neck. The device features a small cannula with three laser wavelengths (1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm) to provide exceptional fat removal and skin tightening results. Treatment duration would depend on the amount of fat to be removed. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Smartlipo also comes with intelligent delivery systems such as SmartSense™, ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™ to ensure controlled energy delivery and prevent overtreatment.
Are you the Right Candidate?
Patients should be carefully evaluated by a reliable plastic surgeon to ensure they are good candidates for laser liposuction. Chin liposuction is a suitable procedure for you if you are healthy and have a good facial structure and muscles. You should have disproportional areas of localized fat and good skin elasticity. You’ll be advised to stop smoking a few weeks before and after the procedure, as smoking can increase risks of bleeding and complicate healing. You should not be substantially overweight and must be ready to cut back alcohol consumption as advised, before and after the procedure.
In most cases, the results of double chin laser liposuction in NYC become visible in a few weeks’ time. As bleeding and bruising is minimal, pain and swelling is minimal, making recovery much faster.
Key factors that can affect the outcomes include weight gain or weight loss after procedure and natural aging. For the results to last, it is important for you to follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight.
