Excess fat under chin and neck makes people look heavier and older than they are. The condition is often difficult to address with diet and exercise. Double chin liposuction in Manhattan is a safe and effective cosmetic surgical procedure to get rid of that excess fat and achieve a well-defined jawline.
Fat buildup under the chin, commonly referred to as a double chin, can be caused by age, weight gain, genetics, skin laxity and lifestyle factors. Smartlipo laser liposuction in NYC is a minimally-invasive liposuction technique that can remove stubborn chin fat and improve the contours of the lower face, neck and jaw line. The procedure can lift sagging jowls and tone the neck area to provide a shapely chin and well contoured jawline. It can restore facial balance and harmony without causing noticeable scarring.
A double chin can be corrected in three ways.
- Chin liposuction – the removal of excess fat from the chin.
- Submentoplasty – combines chin liposuction and muscle tightening.
- A neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) – improves chin contour by removing excess skin or tightening the neck and skin muscles.

The plastic surgeon will determine the appropriate treatment based on individual considerations such as the extent of the correction required, and the individual’s overall health, cosmetic goals, and preferences.
Double Chin Liposuction using Smartlipo Triplex
It is performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. Once the treatment site is numb, the surgeon will make small incisions in discreet area of chin and neck area. The laser-assisted Smartlipo cannula is inserted into the incisions and laser energy is delivered to target the excess fat. The heat liquefies the fat, allowing it to be gently suctioned off.
Compared to more invasive plastic surgeries as tummy tucks or full body liposuction, chin lipo is a small surgery that involves just two incisions and a relatively short recovery period. The procedure rejuvenates your appearance and improves your facial profile. Results will improve over time as the skin tightens. Outcomes are permanent and the fat will not grow back unless you experience a substantial weight gain.
Healing will normally take one to two weeks. You’ll need to take one week off from work. It will take slightly longer before you can return to routine. It may take several months before all the swelling goes down. Here are some things you should know about the recovery phase:
- You will need to rest for at least 24 hours after the procedure
- Bruising and swelling may last for a few weeks
- You will be advised to wear a neck compression garment for a few days to help decrease swelling
- Using cold packs can reduce pain and swelling
- You need to keep your head elevated when sleeping
- Light walking during the initial post-op phase can improve blood circulation
- Avoid strenuous exercises for about 2 weeks
