Double Chin Removal
Dr. Brooke R. Seckel
A double chin is caused by excess fat and loose skin on the neck beneath the chin which causes the appearance of a second area of fullness beneath the chin called a double chin.
There are two methods to get rid of a double chin:
There can be significant bruising of the neck after either method to get rid of a double chin. However in some patients there is minimal or no bruising as can be seen in the photo of the patient above in the section on chin implant. You will have a compression garment covering your chin, neck and head for about a week.
Expect a 10 day to two week recovery for bruising to go away. Makeup can cover the bruising after the first week.
Most patients do not complain of pain but do complain of the tightness and pressure of the facial garment. Pain medications are usually only required the first 2-3 days.
Laser liposuction for double chin costs $7,500. A neck lift with defatting can cost up to $10,000.
I suggest a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is experienced in the techniques for removing a double chin.
