Are You a Candidate for Chin Liposuction?
Liposuction allows Dr. Ken Smart to precisely remove unwanted deposits of fat. The customizable treatment targets specific areas to deliver incredible cosmetic results.
A fatty chin or a “double chin” can be embarrassing. Patients who have good skin elasticity can benefit from liposuction for the chin at Dr. Smart’s plastic surgery center, which serves Frisco, TX, Plano, TX, and North Texas. Dr. Smart is board-certified and provides multiple liposuction treatment options, including Smartlipo Triplex™ and VASER® Lipo.
Am I a Candidate for Chin Liposuction?
If you are embarrassed by excess fat deposits under your chin, you are likely a good candidate for chin liposuction. Liposuction can eliminate the appearance of a double chin while enhancing your neck and jawline.
As with any surgical procedure, candidates should be in good health and free of any medical conditions that could compromise safe anesthesia use or recovery.
During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Smart will discuss the benefits of liposuction and potential surgical alternatives.
Liposuction vs. Neck Lift
Patients should understand what liposuction can fix and what it cannot. If you are young enough that skin laxity isn’t an issue, liposuction can deliver a more cosmetically pleasing neckline.
If you have experienced loosening skin beneath your chin, liposuction will not tighten the area. If you want to address skin laxity, you may be a better candidate for a neck lift. A neck lift can be combined with liposuction to address both concerns and achieve even more dramatic effects.
What Are My Chin Liposuction Options?
If liposuction is found to be your best cosmetic treatment option, Dr. Smart will explain the techniques available to you. Our office is proud to offer a wide range of treatment options for removing fat. Liposuction can be performed using local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia for more involved procedures.
Every aspect of your liposuction will be handled on-site at our state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center.
Traditional liposuction has been safely performed for decades. Dr. Smart will make a small incision on your neck so a thin rod called a cannula can be inserted. The tip of a cannula emits a high-frequency vibration that liquefies fat. A negative suction device built into the cannula then removes the fat deposits from under your chin.
Dr. Smart is the first plastic surgeon in Collin County to offer VASER liposuction. The ultrasound technology reshapes your chin with less trauma to surrounding tissues. The tubes used to suction out fat are so small that the incisions do not have to be sutured following the procedure.
Smartlipo Triplex is a laser-assisted liposuction technology that eliminates fat cells and promotes the production of collagen. Compared to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo Triplex results in faster healing, less bleeding, tighter skin, and a more precise treatment.
Recontour Your Chin with Liposuction
If your skin does not suffer from laxity but you wish to remove fatty deposits under your chin, Dr. Smart can customize a liposuction treatment plan. The neck is one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging. You can reverse unwanted signs of aging without the need for extensive surgery through one of our three liposuction options.
