Double chin removal is a simple process, where we use liposuction to take away the excess fat from the area. This will provide a long-lasting fat reduction result. For many patients, this will change their entire face silhouette.
If you have excess skin, we can “lift” some of this skin with threads that are inserted under the skin. This is known as a “Thread Lift” procedure, it is safe, simple and relatively quick. Combination of both of these procedures will tighten and revitalise the neck and chin at the same time.
With this procedure and potentially combining with a thread lift, we can address many concerns.
When we gain weight, our fat cells enlarge. They will increase in size due to excess oil within the actual fat cell. When we lose weight, the fat cell still remains there, it just decreases in size because the oil within has reduced. So, we can consider fat cells as ‘containers that hold oil’. Using liposuction, we can remove these fat cells from the chin and face.

Of course this varies from patient to patient, procedure to procedure.

The sedative can take a few hours to wear off, but generally, patients are ready to go home about an hour after the surgery. You should be able to walk out of the surgery, but you may feel dizzy and lightheaded.
Our team will discuss with you our set of post-operative care instructions to encourage the healing process.
