Chin and neck liposuction in Kharkiv

Chin and neck liposuction is a plastic surgery aimed at removing excess fat deposits in the chin and neck area (withers, “widow's hump”). Surgical correction of double chin and neck allows giving clarity to the face oval and create a graceful neck-chin angle.

Causes of double chin

The double chin is an excessive overgrowth of adipose tissue in the cervico-chin area. The main causes of the double chin appearance include:

  • age-related decrease in the density and elasticity of the skin, as a result of which it becomes prone to sagging;
  • sagging skin as a result of drastic weight loss;
  • genetic predisposition;
  • poor posture (negatively affects the tone of the muscles of the neck and chin).

The effectiveness of special exercises for the double chin has not been scientifically proven. They can only strengthen the tone of the neck and chin muscles (provided that they are performed regularly), but they are not able to affect the reduction of body fat. You can get rid of a double chin only with the help of liposuction. The liposuction procedure also allows slightly tightening of the chin if the patient’s skin is firm and elastic enough.

With age-related decrease in skin elasticity, liposuction of double chin and neck is combined with a surgical neck lifting. If it is necessary to remove cheeks, chin liposuction is performed along with the removal of Bichat's pads in order to achieve more pronounced cheekbones and clear outlines of the lower part of the face.

Preparation for chin and neck liposuction

  • complete blood count;
  • coagulogram;
  • HIV test;
  • test for hepatitis B and C.

The list of mandatory examinations before surgery on the double chin also includes electrocardiogram (ECG). 48 hours before liposuction, it is necessary to do enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for Covid-19 (IgM antibodies).

Chin and neck liposuction procedure

Two hours before the chin and neck liposuction, a patient shall not eat or drink. Removal of double chin in Kharkiv at the medical center “ON Clinic Kharkiv” is carried out under general anesthesia (intravenous sedation). In order to remove fat from the neck and chin, the surgeon makes thin punctures (only three to five mm in diameter) in the skin with the help of special cannulas through which excess fatty tissue is gently removed.

If necessary, liposuction can be combined with chin lifting. Upon completion of the operation, a compression bandage is applied to the neck and chin area. Liposuction of double chin and withers on the neck in Kharkiv at the medical center “ON Clinic Kharkiv” lasts about one hour. During the day, the patient is under the supervision of medical staff in the hospital, and then can be discharged home.

For several weeks after surgery, you should wear a compression bandage without removing it and avoid tilting your head forward. You only need to sleep on your back. Full rehabilitation after removing fat from the chin and neck takes four weeks.
