A common cause of a double chin is submental fat, another name for the layer of fat that forms beneath your chin. Anyone can have a double chin, despite the fact that it is frequently associated with weight gain. Genetics or loosening of the skin due to aging are two additional potential causes of a double chin.
You probably don’t like having extra skin under your chin, which is also known as a “double chin” or “turkey neck.” The condition that results in a “double chin,” also known medically as submental fullness, is feared by nearly 80% of those who have it. Although diet and exercise can help, aging and genetics can sometimes make it difficult or impossible to completely eliminate submental fullness without medical assistance.
These days, double chins are frequently discussed. incredibly grateful for technology. Even though you can’t see your neck, taking selfies, using Facetime, and using an iPhone on a smooth surface bring your double chin back into focus. Because of this, some people might like to take selfies with the camera above them. Regardless, individuals wish to eliminate these extra neck bags as soon as possible.
This novel submental liposuction technique can tighten the skin around the neck and remove fat through an entryway the size of a freckle. Even better, there is no need for a scalpel, needle, stitches, or general anesthesia. We offer the most recent treatment for double chin removal in San Diego.
Ways to get rid of a double chin.
Masks for the face There are a lot of masks for the face that can tighten the skin and make a double chin look smaller. Exercisers may benefit from the success of glycerin, coffee, or green tea masks. Some people find that using an egg white, honey, and lemon juice mask on a daily basis helps them get rid of the fat under their chin.
Diet: A natural diet might be able to help you lose weight and get rid of your double chin. Some people may benefit from consuming fewer calories per day.
Surgery: There are some people who opt to have double chins treated surgically. The three primary methods for treating a double chin are as follows:
Mesotherapy: In mesotherapy, substances that break down fat are injected into the chin. For some patients, the procedure could take up to six months and more than one hundred shots. If you do it wrong, it could hurt your nerves.
Liposculpture: By using suction or a laser, liposculpture can treat a double chin. Liposuction only reduces fat; The skin will not become more flexible. In this alternative, a machine freezes and kills fat cells by exposing them to temperatures below freezing. This process is called cryolipolysis.
Kybella: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States has granted approval to this medication. The medication is injected up to 50 times into the adipose tissue during a single treatment.
Prior to Kybella injections, chin numbing cream is typically applied topically. In order to determine how much Kybella needs to be injected, a sticker with a template diagram is applied to the submental area.
Lower face and neck lift: Without surgery, you probably won’t be able to get the results you want if you have troublesome extra skin on your neck. A lower face and neck lift may be beneficial for patients who want to reduce excess skin on the neck and submental fat.
Patients can achieve a more youthful appearance by undergoing a lower face/neck lift, which tightens the lower face and neck while also removing excess skin. This facelift, which takes place under general and local anesthesia and requires a recovery period of 10 to 14 days, is also known as a weekend or neck lift.
How much will I need and how much does Sculptra cost?
The cost of Sculptra vials is $695. A week before the treatment, you must schedule a complimentary 30-minute consultation with Dr. Kat Khorrami to find out if you are a good candidate and how many vials are needed. In general, one vial of Sculptra is required for every ten years of life. For instance, if you are in your 50s, you will require five vials; however, this number may be higher or lower depending on your volume loss.
Because Sculptra must be mixed one week prior to the appointment, we require full payment before performing a Sculptra treatment. Sculptra mixed solution must be disposed of if it is not being used at that time.
Per treatment, only two vials of Sculptra can be injected. At least two treatments are required, spaced out over a period of four to six weeks between each.
When will I see the outcomes?
Because Sculptra uses your boy’s natural ability to build collagen in the skin, the effects are not immediate. Collagen production can take anywhere from three to six months, depending on age and volume loss. Improvement will continue where it reaches its peak in nine months.
Sculptra is not for you if you want results right away. Additionally, we recommend dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm. However, you are willing to wait because the outcomes are beyond compare and absolutely amazing. The wait is well worth it.
How long do the effects of Sculptra last?
The effects of Sculptra will last for two to three years after the series of treatments is finished. Considering that the majority of dermal fillers only last a year, Sculptra is regarded as an excellent investment.
How much downtime is there?
There is no interruption. The Sculptra treatment only takes about 60 to 90 minutes to complete. The majority of patients return to their previous routines following treatment. At the injection sites, you may experience some redness and swelling that typically subsides within a few days. Other frequent side effects include bruising, tenderness, and itchiness.
