A double chin is the result of aging, genetics or a poor diet. This condition is known as submental fullness in the medical world and can dramatically impact a person’s confidence. There are also real-world issues associated with having a double chin. In work and social life, you may find that others discriminate against you unfairly. While harsh, it may prove impossible to shift these perceptions.
The chin and neck region may develop excess volume that looks like an extra chin. An ill-defined jawline is also responsible for the appearance of excess volume. For many other individuals, weight issues can negatively impact facial aesthetics. In all cases, seeking treatment from an experienced plastic surgeon may represent your best option for improving the appearance of the jawline and neck.
Some of the contributing factors that lead to the development of a double chin include loose skin, excess fat deposits in the neck, sagging platysma muscle, a weak chin or a drooped salivary gland. Note that excess fat is not the only potential cause of a double chin in women or men.
When fat deposits play a significant role in the development of a double chin, liposuction is an effective treatment at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery under the skilled hands of Dr. Anastasatos. This sculpting procedure involves removing fat from around the chin and neck. Results include a smoother, stronger and more attractive jawline.
Double Chin Removal
As discussed, a double chin does not always result from issues with weight or excess fat deposits. When you trust Los Angeles Plastic Surgery with your treatment, we recommend solutions based on your unique needs. Chin liposuction is one of many procedures that are used to sculpt the jawline and neck.
A facelift combines the removal of fat and loose skin. This approach allows Dr. Anastasatos to balance the facial features while tightening and smoothing skin. There are various kinds of facelifts, all of which focus on achieving specific results. You will benefit from a comprehensive consultation at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, which will help you make informed treatment decisions.
A neck lift provides an effective solution if loose skin and excess fat in the neck are responsible for your double chin. This procedure may include a cervicoplasty to remove excess skin and platysmaplasty to repair loose neck muscles. Dr. Anastasatos may recommend combining this treatment with a facelift.
Combining face, neck and chin treatments is a great way to bring balance and symmetry to the facial features. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery, Dr. Anastasatos is committed to ensuring every patient can achieve personal goals for improved aesthetics. As such, your treatment recommendations may significantly differ from those made to other patients with similar issues.
