Double chin correctionDuring direct assessment a plastic surgeon decides whether a person has excess of skin or fat tissue and consequently chooses a method of correction. In case of fat tissue the procedure is performed with use of liposuction. The procedure is performed in general anaesthesia. In case of some small amounts of fat tissue and body area it can be performed under local anaesthesia but it happens very rarely. Liposuction involves small incisions, infusion of a special liquid and then inserting so called cannula to loosen excess fat tissue and finally sucts out the fat.

After the surgery a patient should stay for at least 1 night in the clinic under medical care. For the first few days majority of patients are significantly swollen and have bruises, feel stiff and sore. The surgery itself is painless but just after the procedure for the first few days patients feel some pain and discomfort which can be controlled by medications. Elastic garment / tourniquet should be worn during first 6 weeks non stop. In a clinic a patient should get instructions how to treat the body after liposuction of chin. As a result of a surgery patient receives a better shaped chin.

In case of skin excess the procedure is performed with the use of surgical cut (excision). This method of chin correction can be performed under local anaesthesia. It means that soon after the surgery a patient can leave the clinic (of course if a patient feels like she should stay longer under medical care, she should definitely stay in the clinic as long as it is necessary). After the surgery patient is left with a bandage and a tourniquet to wear for the first few weeks. There can be soluble or dissoluble stitches (removal after 7 days). About a week after removal of stitches it is a good idea to start treating the incision with ointments that help the scar to flatten out and lighten in color. The incision is almost invisible as it is hidden below the chin.
