A double chin develops from an excess of submental (under the chin) fat. A double chin can appear in people who are at or near their ideal weight, creating the impression that the individual is heavier or older than they truly are. If you are troubled by a double chin, advanced treatments are available to restore the firm, defined jawline that signals youth and vitality.
Ideal candidates for a double chin procedure are men and women who experience excess fat under the chin and along the jawline. A double chin is usually genetic and won’t respond to diet and exercise, so if you’ve tried different remedies without luck, then one of our treatments may be right for you. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Ostad will allow you to discuss your goals, and he can determine the right plan of action for your double chin removal.
Ariel Ostad, MD, PC, in New York City, offers KYBELLA®, CoolSculpting®, Evoke, and Tumescent Liposuction to treat a double chin. Each of these treatments is effective in its own way, and a thorough consultation with Dr. Ostad will determine which treatment is right for you.
Downtime is minimal with KYBELLA®, CoolSculpting®, Evoke, and Tumescent Liposuction. You may experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness. These minor side effects typically subside on their own in one to two weeks. Patients can return to work almost immediately after undergoing these double chin reducing treatments.
KYBELLA®, CoolSculpting®, Evoke, and Tumescent Liposuction destroy the fat cells under the chin, and once the fat cells are gone, they can no longer store fat. Because these treatments eliminate the fat cells for good, the results are long lasting as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Enjoy the fact that you can now take a selfie from any angle with your newly contoured jawline!
