Losing weight is never easy. Sometimes, no matter how much weight we lose, there is still some unwanted fat on the face. When the face looks rounder, it can impact confidence. Who doesn’t love a good and sharp jawline? Sometimes this unwanted fat doesn’t go away because of the genetic disposition. If you have been wanting to get rid of it, the best way to go about it is by undergoing chin liposuction Toronto. This procedure can help you to achieve the chiselled jawline you have always dreamt of. Here is all that you need to know about this procedure.
What is Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that has been designed to permanently remove the unwanted subcutaneous fat pockets that are present under the chin. There is no removal of skin during the procedure. Only a small incision is made. When paired with a neck lift, can help to achieve comprehensive results.
Are you an ideal candidate for the procedure?
Age and diet are two main reasons why people develop the stubborn double or triple chain. Some people also develop it due to their genetic disposition. However, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. The surgeon will determine whether you are an ideal candidate for chin liposuction. Some of the basic criteria include having good skin elasticity. As the fat is removed, the skin needs to bounce back so that you have a smooth result.
How is the procedure performed?
Before the surgery begins, the patient is put under general anaesthesia or local anaesthetic with IV sedation. The surgeon will begin by making a small incision of about a couple of millimetres in diameter. As the treatment area is smaller, there aren’t going to be a lot of visible incisions. You don’t have to worry about them being noticed. Through the incision, the surgeon will remove the dried amount of fat which will help to achieve the desired contours. After that, the surgeon will close the incision.
Can you pair it with other procedures?
Chin Liposuction can be paired with other procedures to achieve more contoured results and balance out the face proportions. You can choose to undergo a neck lift. Apart from that, many people also prefer to get their chin implant done at the same time as the chin liposuction. This will improve the look of a recessed, small chin and create a look that is stronger-looking.
What does recovery look like?
After the procedure is over, you will be moved to the recovery suite. If you are feeling up to it, you can leave the same day with a family member or friend. You will be provided with a list of instructions you need to follow to the T. Apart from that you will be provided with pain medication as well, though recovery is not painful. Experiencing mild swelling or bruising, is normal and will subside within a couple of days. It is suggested to avoid bending over and heavy lifting for the next couple of weeks as it can increase swelling. While sleeping, ensure there are multiple pillows under your neck as it will help to reduce swelling.
