Chin liposuction is a cosmetic facial procedure that removes excess fat below the jawline, improving definition and reducing a double chin. Dieting and exercise typically cannot produce satisfactory results when it comes to removing excess fat in the chin area. Downsize! Lipo Center of Houston is an effective choice for patients looking for chin liposuction in Houston.
Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction is ideal for most healthy patients. Chin liposuction is an excellent choice for candidates who want to get rid of stubborn fat in their chin area. The best candidates have skin with a high degree of elasticity that can retract well after the liposuction procedure.
Patients must be at or near their ideal body weight. Candidates must not be pregnant and must have no upcoming pregnancy plans.
During your consultation, Dr. Hennessy will listen to your concerns and goals. He will evaluate your chin area, including the amount of excess fat and the degree of skin elasticity. Your medical history will also be evaluated.
Dr. Hennessy will create a chin liposuction plan to achieve your goals. He will properly explain all the details of your chin liposuction plan. He will discuss the procedure itself, preparation, and expected results. The recovery process and cost will also be discussed. A procedure date will be set by the end of the consultation.
The chin liposuction procedure will take approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete. It will be performed while the patient is awake, and no general anesthesia will be used. The advantage of this is that the patient will have a much faster recovery time after the procedure.
We provide a virtual reality headset to our patients so they will be comfortable throughout the entire chin liposuction procedure.
A tumescent solution will be infused into the chin region. This contains lidocaine (a local anesthetic), epinephrine, and normal saline. It swells the fatty tissue, numbs the area against any pain or discomfort, and helps to prevent blood loss during the procedure.
Next, a small tube called a power-assisted cannula will be inserted into a tiny incision in the chin area to break down the excess fat. Suction will be used to remove the excess fat through the cannula. The procedure will be finished once the goals of the patient have been achieved.
After Your Chin Liposuction
The patient can go home after their PAL chin liposuction procedure. Since no general anesthesia was used, patients can get back to their regular daily activities within 48 hours. Dr. Hennessy will provide recovery instructions to the patient. This will include the timeline for strenuous physical activities.
The patient will experience minor pain, bruising, and swelling while healing. The results of the chin liposuction procedure can be seen once the patient has fully healed and all swelling is gone.
How Much Does Chin Liposuction Cost?
The cost of the chin liposuction procedure will depend on the amount of excess fat removed and the techniques involved in the procedure. If chin liposuction is combined with other cosmetic procedures, the price of these procedures will affect the total cost.
