Is your pesky double chin leaving you feeling meek and insecure? No need to worry! Double chins are incredibly common amongst men and women of all ages and ethnicities, and there are multiple ways to remove or diminish them. In this article, we’ll be discussing how board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar (and his experienced and medically-trained team) can remove your double chin!
Some of the more common reasons patients have a double chin is either from weight gain or genetic makeup. For many men and women, it is hereditary to have extra fat under their chin. For many women, a double chin may also appear after a certain age. And still, other patients find that they’ve always had a little bit of fat under their chin that never fluctuated despite weight changes.
At Toronto’s Elements Spa board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar can correct a patient’s double chin via plastic surgery (liposuction) and Kybella. Liposuction requires a short one-time procedure that’s minimally invasive with little downtime while Kybella is nonsurgical and involves an injectable to dissolve the fat.
Liposuction to a double chin remains the most popular option for patients looking to remove their double chin. Dr. Adibfar’s liposuction is a very controlled and definitive procedure and provides skin tightening, unlike any other procedure. Dr. Adibfar begins by marking the area under the chin that requires liposuction. Next, a numbing medication or local anesthetic is applied. Typically liposuction under the chin only requires two minuscule incisions that can be compared to two pinholes. The tiny cannula is then inserted into the incisions to safely and effectively suction the excess fat. This small cannula is very well-tolerated under local anesthetic which patients report to be painless.
Once removed, Dr. Adibfar contours the area carefully and closes the incisions which, as mentioned, appear as two faint pinholes which eventually disappear. Patients will notice an immediate difference including nice definition and a flatter and more contoured chin. Over the next 3 months, any swelling will have disappeared leaving a more defined area under the chin. Patients are thrilled with their results and happy that this one-time procedure provides the results they’re looking for as well as guarantees permanent fat removal from the area.
Kybella is an injectable enzyme formulated to break down fat cells from the site of injection where fat cells are not wanted. The enzyme slowly dissolves the fat leaving the chin’s contour smoother and diminished. Patients like that this is a noninvasive procedure and patients typically require 2-6 sessions to obtain their desired results depending on the amount of fat to be dissolved.
