What is double chin liposuction?

Double chin liposuction in Istanbul Turkey works by inserting a small tube, called a cannula, into the chin at different points. Using gentle suction, small strategic amounts of fat are removed from each location. The result is a smoother, more uniform profile with a reduced amount of fat under the chin, thus eliminating the double chin.

How many of us have suffered the indignity of an extra chin appearing out of nowhere in a dodgy selfie or wedding photo, making us curse whoever said ‘the camera never lies’?

A double chin is often associated with being overweight or having a poor diet, but the truth is that age and genetics are just as much a factor in sagging skin.

What causes a double chin?

Health professionals call this condition “submental fullness”. It is caused by excess volume under the chin and neck area. It accumulates around the neck and sags downwards to create a wrinkle that appears to create another chin.

Lack of jaw definition can also give the appearance of a double chin, as can rapid weight loss, and submental fullness can affect both men and women.

Excess volume is often caused by a number of factors:

  • Excess neck fat
  • Loose skin
  • Small or weak chin
  • Sagging platysma muscle
  • Sagging salivary gland

A common misconception is that excess fat tissue alone is the cause of visible double chins, whereas it is usually a combination of the above factors.

Natural ageing is also a major cause; skin loses elasticity with age, making it more susceptible to sagging. Some people are genetically more likely than others to develop submental plumpness. Weight gain can also have an effect, and people often find that fat in this area is particularly difficult to eliminate despite strict exercise and diet.

The psychological effects of a double chin can be devastating and really damage self-confidence; people are afraid to smile or have their photo taken. A double chin can add years to a face, or even make it look heavier than it really is.

There are a myriad of factors that can contribute to this, so a double chin is a common problem. However, our clinic has a range of treatments available to help you regain your smile.

Double chin removal procedures

There are a number of cosmetic surgeries available in Turkey to remove a double chin. These include

1- Tumescent liposuction (or microlipo): Fat under the skin is removed while the contour of the chin and neck is sculpted. The Turkish surgeon makes a small incision under the skin, inserts a tiny cannula and sucks out the fat. Liposuction generally requires only a local anaesthetic to numb the general area.

2 – Vaser lipo: Similarly, laser lipo for the chin and neck is an option for this area that quickly redefines the chin and neck with expert precision. Results are often visible throughout the lower face.

3 – Facelift: This surgery allows doctors to remove fat and loose, sagging skin around the chin and neck, eliminating a double chin. The facelift can be performed under local anaesthetic, but most people undergo a general anaesthetic.

4 – Neck lift: There are several types of neck lift procedures. Cervicoplasty removes excess skin and platysmaplasty tightens the neck muscles to improve the contours of the neck and chin. Some surgeons often combine a traditional facelift with this procedure, which can leave the neck feeling tight for several months.

Micro liposuction of the double chin in Turkey

A local anaesthetic, adrenaline and salt water, known as tumescent fluid, are injected into the area to be treated. This liquid numbs the area and causes the targeted area or areas to swell and firm up, separating the fat cells from the surrounding tissue.

A tiny, almost invisible incision is then made and the fat is removed using microcannulas. In general, this method removes around 10 to 20 ml of fat, which is often more than enough to reduce the appearance of a double chin or submental swelling. The procedure lasts between 45 minutes and 2 hours.

If you look in the mirror immediately after the operation, you’ll notice an instant change. However, it takes around three to four weeks for the swelling to subside completely and for the final result to be clear.

The results of this operation in Istanbul are permanent due to the elimination of fat cells. However, as we advise all our patients, adopting a healthy lifestyle is the most important aspect of post-surgery care, and you will need to maintain your ideal weight.

Turkey is world-renowned for non-invasive liposuction to perform this advanced procedure. Microliposuction is one of the best options, if not the best, for reducing the appearance of a double chin because of the speed, safety and quality of the results.

Recovery time

Downtime with microlipo is minimal, and many people can return to work within 48 hours. Many feel able to resume their usual activities within seven days. The Turkish surgeon will monitor you frequently and help you to readapt after the operation. Patients can return to their normal activities in 10 to 14 days and exercise from two weeks.

Vaser liposuction of the double chin

The Vaser Lipo technique is a different form of liposuction of the double chin in Turkey from the microlipo technique described above, but it is usually performed under local anaesthetic or sedation.

Small micro-incisions are made in the area to be treated, where a tumescent liquid is injected to expand the tissues. A small probe is inserted into the incisions to send out ultrasound energy, which vibrates and ruptures the fatty tissue in the area.

A cannula is then used to move back and forth to remove the fat using a gentle suction device. The incisions are closed and bandaged, and a compression garment is worn to help reduce swelling and leakage.

The results of lipo vaser are also instantaneous, although there is a period of swelling and bruising, and it usually takes five to six weeks for the final results to appear. The results of lipo vaser are also permanent, if you maintain your ideal weight.

Patients can usually return to their normal activities after two to three weeks of recovery from Vaser lipo. The clinic recommends taking about a week off work to allow swelling and bruising to subside.
