Your face is the first thing the world will notice about you. Lack of confidence in your facial appearance can severely impact your quality of life. You may feel that you are losing out romantically, socially and regarding your career prospects.
A double chin is one feature that many will find off-putting. A defined jawline is considered a distinguishing facial feature in both men and women, and a double chin disrupts the facial silhouette. When speaking, a double chin will visibly undulate, distracting listeners from your words and potentially attracting derision.
What Causes a Double Chin?
A double chin can appear due to several factors. Being overweight will increase the likelihood of developing a double chin; however, weight loss could result in loose skin remaining on the chin and neck. This can give the appearance of a double chin even when you are otherwise fit and healthy. Sometimes, weight loss efforts will not target fat deposits on the neck, and despite all the work you put in, achieving a defined jawline may prove impossible.
Genetic predisposition to developing a weak chin can result in a ‘turkey neck’ appearance. Other medical factors, such as drooped salivary gland, could also cause the appearance of a double chin.
Trust Doctor Anastasatos for a Solution
Liposuction to the neck area is an elegant solution to your double chin woes. Liposuction is a relatively non-invasive procedure. You will not need a general anesthetic, and the procedure has minimum discomfort for the patient. Liposuction can be performed in around an hour, and recovery time will take a few days at most.
Once the fat cells have been removed from the neck area, they will not return, and you will notice an immediate improvement in your aesthetic appearance. Doctor Anastasatos may recommend that you combine neck liposuction with other procedures to maximize the slimming effect. A facelift to tighten the skin can complete your new youthful look. He might also recommend the complete removal of excess skin, or a procedure to repair damaged neck muscles.
