Chin liposuction is a relatively simple and non-invasive surgical procedure. Its goal is to contour the transition between the jaw and the neck by removing excess fatty tissue under the chin. At Timeless Clinic, neck liposuction is performed as one of the closing stages of the facial feminization process, allowing for cosmetic contouring of the face and chin. The procedure helps to visually improve the contour of the jaw and chin without leaving scars. At the same time, it gives the face a more feminine and youthful appearance.
Liposuction in the chin and neck is one of the more popular aesthetic procedures, including the MtF procedure. It is usually combined with other surgeries as part of facial feminization.
Excess neck fat, commonly referred to as a “double chin,” disrupts the visual perception and harmony of facial and neck proportions. Liposuction in this area helps to slim the chin, giving the face a youthful and delicate appearance. The altered profile enhances the attractiveness of the face while emphasizing its more feminine character.
If chin liposuction is a separate procedure, then it is performed under local anesthesia. When it is combined with other FFS modifications, then general anesthesia is used.
The surgeon makes very small incisions below the chin and both earlobes. Using gentle movements, he suctions out the excess fat with a thin blunt cannula. At Timeless, we use a VASER lipo ultrasound device to do this. This minimizes the risk of interference in adjacent tissues and increases the precision of surgical manipulation. The treatment leaves no visible scars.
The healing process is not painful. It mainly involves the adjustment and change of skin elasticity in the modified chin area. An elastic chin mask should be used for a period of several weeks to give the neck a proper profile and improve the achievement of the correct shape. Not only will it help keep the soft tissues in proper alignment, but it will also reduce postoperative swelling.
The basic recovery after the procedure takes about 10-14 days. During this time swelling and bruising should subside. The final effect, after complete healing of the changes, will be visible after a few months after surgery. .
