A double chin or submental fat is caused by factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and can make you look older than you are. The condition is generally resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, Smartlipo chin liposuction in New York City is an effective option to address this common aesthetic concern. This minimally invasive laser liposuction treatment is performed using the FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation. A skilled surgeon can use the capabilities of the device to remove excess fat and tighten the skin effectively and provide definition to the jawline and neck/chin area to result in a more youthful-looking facial profile. One thing chin liposuction patients ask their surgeon is about the expected recovery time.
The recovery time and speed of healing varies from person to person. Patients might be advised to follow a high protein and low sodium diet to help healing. Along with a healthy diet, gentle massage and wearing a compression garment (chin strap) can also speed up recovery. Though laser liposuction is minimally invasive, it may involve bruising and swelling, but these effects are far less than with conventional liposuction. Slight drainage from the incisions can be expected during the first 24 hours after chin liposuction. As the swelling subsides, patients will begin to notice a reduction in submental fullness. This typically occurs in 3-5 weeks post procedure. Final outcomes usually appear three to four months after the procedure. It’s important to give your body the time to accept the changes and heal.
Compared to conventional liposuction surgery, double chin liposuction with Smartlipo comes with less downtime and faster recovery. The FDA-approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation, comes with three powerful laser wavelengths–1064nm, 1320nm and 1440nm. The laser energy delivered via a minimally invasive cannula precisely targets and melts the excess fat so that it can be easily suctioned off. The laser wavelengths work together to remove excess fat and restore the natural shape of the chin. The device’s unique intelligent delivery systems – SmartSense™, ThermaGuide™ and ThermaView™, ensure reliable and controlled energy delivery to prevent overtreatment.
