Boost self-confidence with a streamlined profile

Many patients follow a strict diet and exercise regimen yet still struggle with a double chin due to genetics and poor fat metabolism. This area can be notoriously difficult to sculpt without a cosmetic intervention. Chin and neck liposuction is a popular solution that can restore a slim, balanced profile along with a more positive self-image.

What is chin
and neck liposuction?

During chin and neck liposuction, Dr. Giyaur makes a tiny incision through which she inserts a cannula, or slender tube. Unwanted fat cells are then suctioned out of the body and discarded as waste. The procedure has tremendous potential to help patients reclaim a youthful appearance and feel more confident in everyday situations. Even though there are viable non-surgical options for reducing a double chin, liposuction remains among the most successful and trusted methods of fat reduction.

Chin and neck liposuction vs. Kybella

Kybella is a unique FDA-approved injectable that can metabolize the stubborn fat lingering under the chin. While Kybella results can be satisfying for some patients, others will prefer the more dramatic results achieved with chin and neck liposuction, considered the gold standard in body contouring. The best way to decide what’s right for you is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Giyaur, who will examine you physically and discuss your goals for improvement in order to create the perfect treatment plan.

What are the advantages of chin and neck liposuction?

  • Creates a more angular, chiseled jawline
  • Reshapes the profile for a more youthful look
  • Effective when dieting and exercise are not enough
  • Removes excess stubborn fat
  • Enhances self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Patients can enjoy a wider range of hairstyles and clothing options

Who is a good candidate for chin and neck liposuction?

While weight gain can be a factor in developing a double chin, many patients with this condition come by it genetically and are otherwise trim and fit. In this case, a cosmetic procedure may be the perfect solution to restore the appearance of the submental region. A double chin can also occur with the aging process. 

Patients who still have a good amount of skin elasticity will make the best candidates for liposuction, as after the procedure, their skin will snap back snugly, fitting over the newly shaped contours. Patients with more significant skin sagging in addition to submental fullness may need to consider additional aesthetic treatments. As with any surgery, patients should be mentally and physically healthy non-smokers who have realistic expectations for their results. 

What can I expect from the procedure?

Chin and neck liposuction in Manhattan takes about 45 minutes and usually only requires local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Giyaur uses a cannula to suction out fat cells, which are then discarded. An option known as SmartLipo also applies laser energy to boost collagen production, firming and tightening the area at the same time as the fat reduction process.

What happens during the recovery process?

After the procedure, Dr. Giyaur will fit patients with a compression garment to help reduce swelling and keep the new slender neck shape intact through continuous pressure. The compression garment can be discontinued after about four days. Sutures are typically removed within five days. There will be swelling after liposuction but this slowly diminishes over the course of 4-6 weeks.
