Reducing the appearance of a double chin is one of the most popular applications for Smartlipo for both men and women. Some people may have excess fat under your chin from extra weight, but some people have a double chin simply as a result of genetics regardless of their weight. In other words, you might be slender but still have a deposit of fat under the chin that you can’t seem to get rid of with diet and exercise.
It’s understandable that individuals with this issue want to get rid of it to boost confidence and to feel their best. In this article, we will feature before and after photos of WIFH patients who have undergone this treatment for double chin liposuction as well as explain the procedure and some basics of what you can expect.
Double Chin Liposuction Before and After Photos
Smartlipo Laser Liposuction
Like all of our Smartlipo procedures, the double chin procedure is done under local anesthesia. Local anesthesia is the safest way to do this procedure, it’s simply not necessary to put you to sleep to have this procedure done. The instruments we use are very tiny, which create less tissue trauma resulting in less bruising (if any at all) and no downtime.
We make one single puncture to enter the skin. We then infuse the area with the numbing fluid, melt the fat with the laser, and then suction out the liquefied fatty fluid. The heat from the laser also helps to tighten the skin, so your skin will remain firm and smooth after your procedure.
What to Expect from the Procedure
After double chin laser liposuction, you will have some swelling following the procedure, but it typically dissipates very quickly. In most cases a compression garment is not required; however, some patients will use one while they are at home. Though it’s not required for this area, some patients say it helps alleviate swelling more quickly.
There is always a chance for bruising with any Smartlipo procedure of this kind, but most patients do not experience bruising. If you are concerned with bruising, you could begin taking Arnica Montana prior to the procedure, which is an herbal supplement that helps lessen the bruising. With this specific procedure, you will begin to see results in about a week or two.
