The benefits of chin liposuction can be for those who are of normal weight but have a genetic predisposition to having a fatty chin and neck. Dr Joni Feldman says “People often come to me and ask what is the best way to obtain a more youthful appearance. For those who are overweight yet often unwrinkled, a simple solution can be chin liposuction. No matter how much weight they lose the double chin or fatty chin does not disappear.
Chin liposuction also known as neck liposuction is performed under local anaesthesia in my accredited Day Surgery in South Yarra.”

How long do the results last for double chin liposuction.?

The results are permanent. Imagine you have -10 fat cells under your chin. After the neck liposuction procedure about 80% of the fat cells are removed leaving only hypothetically -2 fat cells . If you gain significant weight then the remaining fat cells will grow bigger but the other 8 fat cells which are removed during the liposuction procedure are no longer present which means the size of the sub-mental fat will be significantly reduced permanently.

Risks associated with chin lipo?

Neck or chin liposuction is a relatively safe procedure; however, with any surgical procedure, there is always an element of risk. Most individuals can return to their daily life activities soon after surgery.
However, be prepared for some local swelling and minimal bruising that may last for up to two weeks.

The ‘before and after’ photographs on Dr Joni Feldman’s website illustrate examples of the types of procedures Dr Feldman provides, along with the results received. Results may vary, depending on the individual. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What is the down time after surgery?

You will be required to wear a compression bandage for three days after the procedure. Many patients decide to take three days off work.  This is only due to appearances, as there may be mild bruising to the area. There is minimal pain  after this procedure. Within the first three days, the compression bandaged can be taken off for one hour a day.

Does chin lipo leave saggy skin?

Patients often wonder how the skin will appear after liposuction. Fortunately, Dr Joni Feldman is often  pleasantly surprised at how well the skin retracts after lipo in this area. Generally, women’s skin tends to retract better than men’s.

What is the difference between  neck lipo or sub mental liposuction?

Chin Liposuction or Neck Liposuction Is really the same procedure, but most liposuction and plastic surgeons typically refer to the operation as “Neck” liposuction.

I have performed  liposuction for twenty years and  chin liposuction provides the most youth enhancing minimally invasive cosmetic surgery that permanently removes fat around the neck area, giving beautiful defined jaw lines and enhancing facial contours.
