Double Chin Liposuction

A double chin, also known as submental fat, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin area. A double chin may be associated with weight gain or genetics. A double chin usually comprises two components. Usually, there is excessive fat cells, as well as loose skin. Therefore, a specialised solution may be required to correct the problem. Double chin treatments can include liposuction or fat dissolving injections.

When Does a Double Chin Start?

When Does a Double Chin Start?

The Dr Lanzer Clinic surprisingly sees many patients who are quite young, in their 20s and 30s, who can already have the beginnings of a double chin. Sometimes, it will just be a little convex surface hanging underneath the skin. Patients will notice that they can grab the area of fat in that area. With time, the fat tends to accumulate more and eventually becomes a real double chin.

Is a Double Chin Related to Weight?

Is a Double Chin Related to Weight?

Cosmetic and dermatologist surgeons have noted for years that many localised areas of fat are not related to general weight. Patients might complain that even when they lose a lot of weight, the double chin remains. Some patients even mention that weight loss has aggravated the problem. With weight loss and dieting, patients experience that the skin starts to droop and sag. This may become more noticeable on the neck and make the problem worse.

    How to Get Rid of a Double Chin with Surgery?

    Essentially, we have many different cosmetic procedures for the sagging chin. The first is a
    liposculpture using the Vaser or a superficial chin liposuction method. With these treatments, we can remove almost all the fat from the neck. Removing fat induces a tight retraction of the dermis,
    resulting in skin tightening and elevation for a more defined jawline. Often, this is all that is required.

    In other patients, if there is excessive skin, we could consider a suture lift. During a suture lift, the skin is just sutured to the ear cartilage. Other possibilities are the mini neck and facelift, where the skin is tightened and removed from behind the ear.

    Naturally, results depend on the specific problem the patient wants to correct. Therefore, it is always important to discuss your needs with Dr Lanzer before surgery commences.

    Why Do I Have a Double Chin?

    The information above indicates that a double chin can have more than one cause. So, most patients must consult a cosmetic surgery to determine the exact cause of their double chin. However, the Dr Lanzer Clinic prefers providing their patients with all the information they need before their appointment. Therefore, we have created an overview with the common causes of a double chin below.



    One of the causes of a double chin is age because the skin can lose its elasticity as the body gets older. When the skin around the neck area starts to sag, it may cause a double chin.

    Weight and Lifestyle

    Weight and Lifestyle

    Even though weight is not always the cause of a double chin, men and women who are significantly overweight could experience double chin fat because of their weight; this is usually the case for people who enjoy a diet rich in calories and processed foods, and unhealthy fats.



    In some cases, genes can play a role in the development of a double chin. Therefore, if someone in your immediate family suffers from a double chin, you might be more susceptible to the problem yourself.

    What Else Do I Need to Know About Double Chin Removal?

    Are There Non-Surgical Treatments for Double Chin Removal?

    Yes, there are so-called fat-blasters and skin tightening treatments that can help with a double chin. One treatment proven to be most effective is the Ulthera, which is a device that produces concentrated ultrasound waves. These waves go into the muscle to cause skin tightening. However, even though this treatment is non-surgical, patients can experience discomfort after this procedure.

    How to Get Rid of a Double Chin Fast?

    The solution for a double chin often lies with the cause. So, if you are looking to get rid of your double chin fast, it is essential to find the root cause of it.

    Your cosmetic surgery can help you determine the cause of your double chin. Patients can also get the most viable solutions for their double chin from their cosmetic surgery, after which they can make an informed decision.

    What Are the Possible Side Effects of a Surgical Neck Lift?

    All surgical treatments have risks of bruising, pain, and swelling around the treatment area. There is a sensory nerve on the lower part of the neck, which is usually out of the territory of the surgical approach, but that is always a potential risk, as well as a small nerve that affects the movement of the mouth. Even with a mini lift, the surgeon mostly stays out of the main nerve territory. However, this remains the primary risk with any surgical facelift.

    How Many Year Younger Will I Look After Removing a Double Chin?

    A double chin could give the impression of an aged appearance. When we look at photographs of young children or teenagers, there is always a tight complexion with a sharp angle of the jawline.
    When one loses the jawline sharpness through the development of a double chin, the person may appear older and somewhat fatigued. These impressions could change following cosmetic surgery.

    A double chin can be caused by excess fat or skin as explained earlier, but the neck is an area that is difficult to exercise. Therefore, chin liposuction could be a solution for these patients.

    FAQs For Double Chin Liposuction

    Using our special liposuction technique involving local anaesthetic, we can ensure our patients are comfortable and minimal pain.

    Patients usually only require 1-3 days of downtime after the procedure; however, minor swelling and bruising will settle down in one-two weeks. Your final results will be 3-6 months post-procedure date.

    The pricing of liposuction to the double chin begins at $3,995 plus hospital fees, subject to consultation.

    Double chin injections (Kybella) are an additional treatment option involving the use of deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat deposits and reduce the amount of fat in the chin area. Most people receive two or three treatment sessions. But the number of treatments required depends on the patient and the amount of excess fat in the treatment area.
