Cosmetic treatments: chin and neck liposuction and laser lipolysis/vaser hi def
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can potentially reduce the volume and size of your chin and neck by extracting fat cells. However, results can vary and there are potential risks involved. Our cosmetic surgeons use a variety of cosmetic treatments and liposuction techniques to remove the fat cells, detailed below.
Liposuction can potentially extract excess fat in the neck and may help promote collagen regrowth. This could potentially help the skin adhere to the underlying muscles and reduce sagging skin. However, results can vary and there are potential risks involved.
Laser lipolysis/vaser hi def is a procedure that involves the use of a probe under the skin to create heat and potentially remove excess fat. The heat created may contract the skin collagen and could encourage a better attachment of the tightened skin to the underlying muscles. However, results can vary and there are potential risks involved.
Becoming a candidate for chin and neck liposuction
To help determine if you’re a suitable candidate for these procedures, a consultation with one of our surgeons can provide valuable insights. However, it’s also important to consider other factors and seek advice from other healthcare professionals. In some instances a facelift or neck lift procedure may need to be performed to tighten loose and sagging skin around the chin and neck line.

What happens during the procedure?
Chin and neck liposuction is one of the methods available for treating a double chin. It’s important to consult with a medical professional to understand all your options.
By making discreet small incisions under the neck and ears, the submental fat which is responsible for creating a double chin, can be gently extracted through a suction device to produce a more slender chin and neck line. The results of liposuction can be long-lasting, as the body does not produce new fat cells after puberty. However, existing fat cells can enlarge with weight gain, which could affect the results.
Chin and neck liposuction is a surgical procedure so for a safe and full recovery you should allow some downtime for recovery. After treatment, it’s common to experience some pain under your chin area and around your neck. The level of pain can vary between individuals. Pain in the treatment area can usually be managed with pain medication, but it may last longer than 24 hours for some people. To aid your recovery from liposuction, you may need to wear a chin brace at all times for around 2 to 4 weeks, then only at night for another 2 to 4 weeks. However, recovery times can vary between individuals. A compression garment is not uncommon after a cosmetic procedure to aid and support recovery.
What should you expect after double chin liposuction and neck surgery?
After your lipo procedure, you may feel drowsy due to the anaesthetic. It’s important to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight. You should also schedule some downtime to support your recovery. You may experience some discomfort and swelling after the procedure, which can be managed with medication. We’ll provide you with an after-hours direct number for any questions or concerns. It’s important to note that individual recovery times and experiences can vary.
The use of anaesthesia during liposuction depends on various factors including the treatment area, the amount of fat to be removed, and your personal health. Both general and local anaesthesia have their own risks and benefits, which our team will discuss with you to determine the most appropriate option for your procedure.
What does double chin liposuction recovery involve?
After liposuction to the chin and neck, some patients may experience pain under the chin and around the neck area. While this can often be managed with pain relieving medication, it’s important to note that individual experiences may vary, and some discomfort is part of the recovery process.
The next day, or within a few days of your procedure, a post-operative check is typically scheduled. You’ll likely be given a chin brace to wear, which can help support your recovery. The duration for wearing this may vary, but it’s often recommended for around 2 to 4 weeks full time, and then for 2-4 weeks at night. It’s important to remember that individual recovery times and experiences can vary.
Our team will aim to support you throughout your recovery process with post-operative check-ups. However, it’s important to remember that recovery can involve challenges and potential side effects. If you have any concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us.
If you have any questions or concerns during your recovery, please don’t hesitate to contact our clinic. It’s important to remember that while we aim to provide support, recovery can involve challenges and potential side effects.

What about dermal fillers and liposuction?
At Me Clinic, we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures, including dermal fillers. Our team of registered medical practitioners, with their respective registration numbers and types of medical registration, are experienced in administering both hyaluronic acid and autologous fillers.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are a common type of dermal filler treatment. They are made from a naturally occurring sugar found in the body, which can help to give the skin moisture, volume, and elasticity. However, it’s important to note that individual responses and results can vary.
Autologous fillers offer a more natural alternative to dermal fillers. This treatment involves extracting fat from another area of your body and reinjecting it into the face and cheeks, which can help to re-contour your face and provide definition to your jowls and chin. It can even be used to correct some facial deformities. However, individual responses and results can vary.
