Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin With Chin Liposuction in Thousand Oaks

Excess fat that accumulates beneath your chin is not only difficult to shed, but it also tends to have a major impact on your appearance. Fat in the submental area can create an unsightly “double chin” appearance, weakening the contours of your lower face and neck as well as your profile. Although dieting and exercise are often ineffective in eliminating submental fat, there may still be a simple solution. At Elevate Plastic Surgery, we offer chin liposuction to help patients get rid of excess submental fat once and for all.

What Is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat from the submental area (the area beneath the chin). Most commonly, this procedure is used to eliminate the appearance of a double chin and enhance the contours of the lower face and neck.

During chin liposuction, a small incision is made in the submental area and below the earlobes. The targeted excess fat is then safely suctioned out of the body through a narrow cannula.

  • Elimination of “double chin” appearance

  • Enhanced lower face and neck contours

  • Relatively short recovery period
  • A more youthful-looking neck
  • Improved self-confidence

What to Expect During Your Chin Liposuction Procedure

If you’re interested in chin liposuction in Thousand Oaks, the first step will be to have a private consultation with Dr. Rahgozar. He will examine your submental area and ask you about your specific goals for the procedure. He’ll also have questions about your medical history and health to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the surgery. Your chin lipo surgery will be performed as an outpatient procedure using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation.

To begin, Dr. Rahgozar will make a small, well-hidden incision beneath your chin and sometimes below the earlobes. Thenhe will insert a narrow cannula, which he will use to suction out the unwanted fat. Finally, the incision will be closed with sutures, and the doctor will apply bandages to the area.

Following your surgery, we’ll keep you around for monitoring in the recovery room. After a couple of hours, a friend or family member can drive you home.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Liposuction?

Adults looking to get rid of stubborn excess fat in the submental area could be good candidates for chin liposuction in Thousand Oaks. The procedure is a popular choice for individuals who are experiencing a “double chin” appearance that dieting and exercise have failed to eliminate. To be an ideal candidate for chin liposuction, it’s important that you’re in good physical health, relatively close to your ideal weight, and not currently pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also be a non-smoker and have reasonable expectations for the results of the surgery.

What Is the Recovery Like After Chin Liposuction?

You may have some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort around the chin and neck after your chin liposuction procedure. You can reduce these symptoms by sleeping with your head elevated and wearing the compression garment around your chin and neck. If necessary, Dr. Rahgozar can also prescribe you pain medication. Most patients need to rest at home for around a week after undergoing chin liposuction surgery.

During this time, you should take light walks regularly to keep your blood flowing and promote healing. You should also stay hydrated, get lots of sleep, and maintain a nutritious diet. After the first week, you should feel well enough to return to work and resume your normal routine. However, you’ll want to wait at least three to four weeks before engaging in strenuous exercise.
