Are you tired of seeing your double chin in the mirror? Do you find yourself trying to hold up your “second chin” when FaceTiming a friend? You are not alone. The area of excess fat and sagging skin that exists between the chin and neck is a common concern for many adults.
While weight gain or obesity can certainly contribute to the appearance of a double chin, it can also be caused by genetics, your posture and the natural aging process. The good news is that there is help for your double chin. A plastic surgeon can offer both surgical and non-surgical solutions.
At Avance Plastic Surgery, we can help both men and women who are self-conscious about their double-chin, sagging neck skin or undefined jaw line. Depending on your specific concerns and preferences, our treatments can range from facial injections that eliminate under-chin fat to surgical neck lifts that permanently fix sagging neck skin.
With today’s options in modern filler injections, patients don’t have to go under the knife to drastically reduce their double chin appearance. Kybella represents the latest FDA-approved injectable product that targets and destroys moderate to severe submental fat without surgery. Kybella uses synthetic bio acids that can permanently eliminate the fat cells that cause a double chin. The procedure is quick and painless, and the results are fast!
For patients that have excess under chin fat as well as excess or sagging neck skin, a surgical neck lift may be a more appropriate solution. A Neck Lift, also called platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty, can address the deeper tissues and muscles of the neck. This procedure is typically done under anesthesia and can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual patient. For some, a minimally-invasive skin lift is needed while others may require a more complete tightening of the neck muscles (platysmaplasty).
