double chin surgery

Looking to eliminate your double chin? While it might be a common problem, that doesn’t stop a double chin from causing a lot of embarrassment. However, if you’re struggling to eliminate it through diet and exercise, you do have alternative treatment options.

Here, we’ll look at some of the best cosmetic treatments to get rid of that double chin and help you to regain your confidence.

The surgical facelift

If you’re looking to eliminate a double chin completely, the surgical facelift is a good option. However, this only applies if you have other signs of ageing on the face. A facelift is a major operation, requiring a lot of downtime. It aims to achieve a more youthful appearance by tightening the muscles and eliminating excess fat and skin.

There are risks of a facelift to be aware of before deciding whether or not this is the right option for you. Generally speaking, if you are only looking to address a double chin and not treat other areas of the face, the surgical facelift might not be the best option for you.

Lipo under the chin

If it is just your double chin you want to eliminate, lipo under the chin is a great option. These days, liposuction targets much smaller areas of fat. It is most commonly used as a contouring procedure and can safely eliminate small pockets of fat. This makes it a great choice for treating a double chin caused by excess fat.

One thing to consider here is that liposuction doesn’t address excess skin. So, you may need to use it in combination with another procedure to eliminate both the fat and the skin.

Facial filler treatments

In some patients, temporary hyaluronic acid dermal fillers might be a good option. These can help to strengthen the chin and the jawline. By drawing attention to other areas of the chin, it can successfully hide your double chin.

Choosing the right option for you

Each of the procedures mentioned above have their own pros and cons. It’s important to research the different treatments before deciding which one is best for you. It is also recommended that you book a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. They will be able to advise you of which treatment is best for you.
