DOUBLE CHIN REMOVAL SINGAPORE

What is a double chin?

A double chin is known medically as submental fat. It is the excess layer of fatty tissue under the lower jaw. This is a common condition that affects both the young and the old. Many people have the misconception that a double chin only happens to those who are overweight – this is not true as a double chin can happen for many reasons. 

What causes a double chin?

Double chins are often inborn due to the natural alignment of one’s facial anatomy. It can also be acquired from weight gain, due to the accumulation of submental fats. Skin laxity due to collagen loss from various causes (ageing, UV damage, smoking etc.) contribute to the appearance of a double chin too. Figuring out the cause behind your double chin is just as important as the actual treatment. 

What is double chin removal?

Surgery for double chin involves removing loose skin and excess fat in the submental and/or neck area. There are several types of double chin removal surgeries: 

  • Chin liposuction 

This procedure uses a suction technique to remove excess fat from under the skin. 

  • Chin tuck (submentoplasty)

Skin is tightened and excess fat removed in the chin and upper neck region. 

  • Neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) 

A neck lift is more extensive than a chin tuck. It removes excess skin and tightens the muscles for the entire chin and neck area. 

Nowadays, there are other less invasive technologies such as radiofrequency or ultrasound devices that can help reduce  a double chin through the destruction of fat cells and production of collagen. Alternatively, injections can be used to sculpt the chin and neck to improve the appearance of a double chin.

  • Have a more well-defined and nicely shaped chin and neck.

HIFU

Energy-Based Devices

Ultrasound-based devices like the Ultherapy, Ultraformer III, and Sofwave can be used to firm up and lift skin overlying the chin. Penetration of focused ultrasound beams into deeper levels also aid in debulking the fats that contribute to double chins. 

Ultherapy also boosts the production of new collagen which helps tighten up sagging and loose skin for a more well-defined jawline. Most people only need one session of about 30 minutes (lower face including submental area) to see results. An additional session may be helpful but is usually not necessary. Maintenance sessions can be done yearly for sustained results.
