Excess fat deposits in any area of the body are a common aesthetic concern among men and women. The chin is a common area for the buildup of fat due to factors such as aging, weight gain, heredity, hormonal changes, lack of physical activity, sleep deprivation and environmental factors. A double chin, as this excess fat under the chin and jawline is called, can significantly affect the definition of the lower face and neck. Double chin liposuction in NYC is a safe and effective way to get rid of the stubborn fat and achieve a natural shape to the neck. This minimally-invasive laser liposuction procedure removes unwanted fat beneath the chin, lifts sagging jowls, tones the area and tightens the skin to provide a well-defined jawline and more youthful-looking neck.
Double Chin Liposuction: How Is This Performed?
This procedure removes stubborn fat and tightens the underlying muscle structure, reducing the appearance of a double chin and sculpting your chin and neck. NYC plastic surgeons use the the FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex laser-assisted workstation to perform the procedure. It uses three separate laser wavelengths: 1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm to melt fat for easy extraction, coagulates the tissues, and tightens the skin, improving outcomes and your facial profile overall. Its advanced delivery technologies, SmartSense™, ThermaGuide™, and ThermaView™, are designed to support controlled energy delivery and protect against overtreatment.
While some candidates see results right away, it typically takes days or weeks to observe a significant change. Liposuction can remove chin fat permanently. However, age, pregnancy, and weight gain can the affect the outcomes in the long run. A healthy lifestyle is important to retain your results. Your surgeon will discuss these matters with you during your appointment and provide the right guidance to support a smooth treatment experience.

Preparing for the Treatment
Before getting Smartlipo laser liposuction, candidates should clarify any concerns or questions with the plastic surgeon and understand what to expect. They should stop drinking alcohol, smoking or vaping at least two weeks before the surgery, and avoid taking any blood thinning medications such as Advil, aspirin etc. to prevent any complications.
Have a clear understanding of the procedure and be mentally and physically ready for the changes it will produce. Plan sufficiently ahead and make proper arrangements for support during the recovery period.
It will take around three to four days to fully recover initially. This is typically the most challenging and uncomfortable period for patients. Fortunately, laser-assisted chin lipo is a minimally invasive, relatively simple surgery with minimal negative side effects such as minimal scarring, bruising and pain. You have to wear a chin strap right away after the procedure. This will ease pressure under the chin, help reduce swelling, and retain the new form of your neck and jawline.
