Some people think double chins are cute, even on adults. But some grown-ups with double chins do not find them at all cute, especially if they can’t get rid of them even if they exercise and have a healthy diet. Here at Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, we encourage you to learn more about double chin removal.
The FDA has approved a technique where injections of synthetic deoxycholic acid are used for double chin removal. Deoxycholic acid helps break down fats, which the body then uses for energy or excretes. Patients find this treatment attractive because it is minimally invasive and they can leave their aesthetician’s office right away. The number of injections the patient needs depends on how much fat needs to be taken away from their double chin. The session lasts about 20 minutes, and the patient usually returns for more treatments. Most patients have a small series of treatments spaced about a month apart.
Liposuction for Double Chin
Though liposuction is often thought of as treating large areas on the body such as the thighs or the abdomen, it can also be used to remove fat from the double chin. During liposuction for the chin, the plastic surgeon makes a tiny incision in the chin then inserts a small-bore cannula that vacuums out the fat. This is also an outpatient procedure, and most patients only need a local anesthetic.
