Just because you inherited a double chin from your ancestors doesn’t mean you have to keep the family tradition going. And we can’t always blame genetics. You may have that submental fat under your chin due to weight gain or because your skin is starting to sag. Regardless of the reason for your double chin, though, we can help you here at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery. Without an invasive neck lift.
No matter your gender, and even as a younger adult, you can develop a double chin. It can obscure the natural contours of your jawline and make you look older or chubbier than you are. Let’s get rid of it! The sooner you address this issue, the better. We offer several non-surgical treatment options that we can use alone or in combination to achieve the double chin reduction results you want.
All of the procedures are performed in-office. All are FDA-approved and effective, yet each one is different. This enables Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez to tailor a treatment plan that ideally addresses each patient’s excess fat and skin laxity challenges. Some of these procedures provide extra benefits such as tighter, smoother skin and stimulation of new collagen production for ongoing surface improvement.
This non-surgical procedure uses radiofrequency (RF) to reduce fat and tighten skin, producing surgical-like results without any scars. FaceTite is also used to firm and smooth jawline contours. For some patients, Dr. Hernandez may use related AccuTite technology instead.
This is an RF-based microneedling procedure that significantly improves the texture of the skin and firms the skin by stimulating collagen production. Adding platelet-rich plasma (PRP) further improves results.
This two-step procedure combines FaceTite and Morpheus8 to further enhance results.
After carefully noting exactly where lift is needed, Dr. Hernandez performs FaceTite to tighten the skin and melt the subsurface fat. She then places a specialized surgical suture that, once in place, provides support and stimulates production of new collagen. The suture dissolves with time as the skin firms, to lift the features.
Related to FaceTite, this technology also uses radiofrequency (RF) to reduce fat and smooth contouring.
This traditional procedure uses a thin hollow tool to vacuum away unwanted fat.
This treatment freezes targeted fat cells, which are then flushed by the body.
We invite you to check out the specific web pages to learn more about each of these options. If your skin laxity and excess fat are severe, Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez may recommend neck lift surgery as the best solution after all. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, she can help you achieve results that restore a slimmer, more youthful and entirely natural appearance to your jawline and neck.
Kybella is an injectable serum made from deoxycholic acid which breaks down fat and helps the body absorb it.
Neo Firm Neck & Décolleté Tightening Cream
This intensive anti-aging cream specifically targets the neck and décollatage, using a blend of moisturizers and other ingredients to help firm and tighten skin, minimize the appearance of dark spots, improve skin tone and support production of new collagen and elastin. Dr. Hernandez recommends Neo Firm as a stand-alone product for at-home use, and she also uses it to enhance results of some in-office treatment procedures.
Benefits of Double Chin Reduction
All of the non-surgical treatment options we offer provide substantial results without the need for standard neck lift surgery. You can get rid of excess fat and sagging skin, and enjoy a smoother profile that can take years (or pounds) off your appearance.
What Happens During Double Chin Reduction Treatment?
Because the treatments are so different, the in-office procedural details and timing vary considerably. Kybella injections, for example, take just a few minutes and require no downtime. A Suture Suspension NeckLift is the most complex non-surgical treatment, taking an hour or so. We use local numbing as appropriate to ensure patient comfort. In some cases, it takes more than one treatment to achieve optimal results.
What Happens After Double Chin Reduction Treatment?
While some of these procedures require no downtime at all, on average, recovery takes just 2 days. You should start seeing improvement within a few weeks. Results will be permanent or semi-permanent.
With so many options available, there is a double chin reduction treatment just right for you. Why wait any longer to eliminate that fat and restore your natural profile?
