Over time, due to the accumulation of fat, loss of elasticity of the skin and slackening of the subcutaneous muscle, a double chin appears as the fat under the chin protrudes and sags. Liposuction is performed under general or local anaesthesia to correct the appearance of a double chin. However, in the case of sagging and skin folds, in addition to liposuction, the muscle is sutured accordingly and the sagging skin is also tightened.
Liposuction is a very comfortable post-operative procedure for the patient. The patient is usually sent home within a few hours and can return to work and daily activities within a day or two.
