Laser Double Chin Removal Nonsurgical Neck Lift

Millions of people (including me) can’t stand to see their double chin looking back at them in the mirror. In the past the options for getting rid of a double chin were surgical-either liposuction or a plastic surgical neck lift. Results of surgery for removal of a double chin can be dramatic-see before and after picture below:

Problems With Surgical Removal of a Double Chin

However many people simply do not want to have surgery because of the scars and recovery involved following a neck lift. Many people have opted for liposuction of the neck. While liposuction of the neck can remove fat, in many people excess loose skin is left behind after a traditional liposuction. This loose skin beneath the chin left after a liposuction of the neck is very distressing for many people who often decide to have a neck lift after they have already gone through a liposuction.

The New Way To Get Rid of a Double Chin

New laser technology which melts fat and tightens skin has made it possible to remove a double chin with minimal down time and no surgical scars. The new technology is called SlimLipo® and consists of new, patented 924nm and 924/975nm laser wavelengths that specifically target fat and loose skin. The results can be dramatic as shown in the photo below which shows a before and 4 days after SlimLipo® of the neck and a small chin implant:

This new procedure which I call a nonsurgical neck lift can help get rid of a double chin without the surgery involved with a neck lift. It works best on individuals who have a fat neck without a lot of loose neck skin. Older patients who have a lot of loose sagging skin beneath the chin (turkey neck) may still need a traditional neck lift or face lift.

How The Laser Removal of Double Chin is Done

The procedure is done with a tiny laser fiber which is inserted beneath the chin skin and can be done with local anesthesia. Usually a supportive garment called a chin strap is worn for 4-5 days after the procedure to help keep the skin tight during recovery.
