Can a Facelift Get Rid of a Double Chin?
A facelift is known for improving facial contours via the smoothing and removal of excess skin, but Orlando patients often wonder whether the procedure has the ability to similarly enhance the neck and jawline. While facelift surgery at our Orlando practice can reduce neck laxity to some degree, effectively getting rid of a double chin may require a combination of additional neck contouring approaches. Luckily, these techniques can easily be added to your facelift treatment plan so that total facial rejuvenation can be completed in just one procedure.
If you have the appearance of a double chin due to excess fat in the submental region (under the chin), liposuction should be enough to reduce fullness and achieve more definition around the jawline. A mild amount of excess neck fat can even be reduced with CoolSculpting®, a non-surgical method of fat removal that may be sufficient to produce the results you desire without needles or downtime. However, if loose skin and/or musculature in the neck accompanies excess fat, a surgical neck lift may be necessary to slim and smooth the area. Neck lift surgery is similar to a facelift, primarily aiming to lift the skin, remove fat, and tighten stretched musculature. In creating the most ideal treatment plan for your needs, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will ask you about your goals and evaluate your anatomical indicators. He will explain the pros and cons of each neck contouring technique, and work with you to determine the best course of action for your desired results.
