Double chin liposuction
Fat that accumulates in the chin and neck area can be particularly resistant to diet, weight loss and exercise and can make you feel you look heavier or older that you are. Chin lipo is a long-lasting way to eliminate stubborn chin fat, known as submental fat. The jawline and neck can also be contoured and rejuvenated at the same time.
During the procedure, Mr Michael Mouzakis will make a tiny incision below the chin and then carefully suction out the unwanted fat by MicroLipo or Vaser Lipo.
During a MicroLipo procedure, a solution of saline, local anaesthetic, and adrenaline is injected into the treatment area. This helps to numb the area but also makes it easier to dislodge the fat cells. A microcannula is then inserted through a tiny incision and the fat removed.
There is a limit on how much can be removed with MicroLipo compared to other liposuction techniques, but this is more than enough to improve the appearance of the chin and jawline and MicroLipo is a highly effective treatment for submental fullness.
Chin lipo is usually performed as a day case procedure so you will be discharged the same day. The procedure takes approximately an hour and can be performed under local or general anaesthetic.
