Jawline Liposuction: Pros and Cons To Consider

A close portrait of an aged woman before and after the facelift procedure.

Regarding liposuction, we usually consider the stomach, buttocks, and thighs suitable for a quick, minimally invasive fat-fighting treatment.

However, the chin is also in need of surgical refinement. It may be higher than other body parts because we cover those with clothing daily. But what about the excess fatty tissue that makes us look older and affects our overall shape and profile? Or, worse, causes the dreaded double chin?

For most patients, chin liposuction is a suitable treatment option. Considering its advantages and disadvantages? The following are the most significant factors to consider

Advantages of Chin Liposuction

The Chin is Prominent and Visible

Unless you live in the extreme cold all year, your chin is almost certainly exposed to the elements every time you go outside. However, if you have jowls and drooping tissue, you may want to get them removed for a quick and dramatic improvement in your overall complexion and appearance. Addressing the chin can drastically affect the entire body, even causing you to look younger and thinner throughout the whole figure. 

Fat Cannot Be Reduced in Specific Areas, Even on the Chin

Contrary to popular opinion, you cannot spot-reduce fat in any body part. Instead, it would help if you lost fat "everywhere" to influence the chin and neck significantly. Because it's so stubborn, this could take some time.

Local Anesthesia Could Be Used For Chin Liposuction

During a personal consultation, your surgeon will assess whether local or general anesthetic suits your specific condition. However, in many circumstances, local anesthetic is sufficient for the treatment. With AirSculpt® chin fat removal, everything is always done with the patient fully awake. 

Chin Liposuction Takes Less Than An Hour

Despite its prominence, the chin isn't a large body part. In most circumstances, liposuction should take less than an hour.

Aging Has A Significant Impact on the Chin

The chin and neck are two locations where early indications of aging appear most obviously and prematurely. Liposuction of the chin aids in reducing fat buildup caused by hormone swings and other bodily changes.

Chin Liposuction is Minimally Invasive

Because no linear incisions are created, the operation is considered minimally invasive when done under local anesthesia. A surgical cannula is inserted to suck away the fatty tissue securely. The results are immediate, and the side effects are negligible.

Cons of Chin Liposuction

Despite its numerous advantages, a few drawbacks to chin liposuction should be considered before undergoing the operation.

You'll Need Some Downtime to Rest and Heal

While each patient reacts differently to the treatment, most should expect a couple of days of downtime, rehabilitation, and being asked to wear a chin garment. 

Chin Liposuction is Effective to Reduce Fat But Not Loose Skin

Liposuction of the chin eliminates fatty deposits from beneath the skin but may not considerably improve skin laxity, which may necessitate a different treatment like AirSculpt® +

Older Patients May Need Skin Tightening

Patients over 60 may require another operation to correct sagging skin after undergoing liposuction to achieve the desired cosmetic results.

Chin AirSculpt® Is The Optimal Choice

Chin AirSculpt® is the next-generation iteration of liposuction that uses patented technology and our proprietary handpiece to pluck fat cells throughout the chin and neck region, one by one, to ensure utmost precision.

All fat is extracted via tiny two-millimeter-wide entry points, which do not require stitches and are naturally left to heal. Additionally, no noticeable scarring is developed, only leaving a small mark that can be easily mistaken for a freckle.

AirSculpt® technology was designed to provide aesthetic results while minimizing the risk or discomfort of traditional methods. Stubborn double chin fat can be permanently removed without scalpels, stitches, needles, or general anesthesia.
