Double Chin

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.

Candidates

​​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.

Procedure

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.

  • KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved medication that is injected under the chin to destroy fat cells. It contains deoxycholic acid, a substance found in the body that breaks down dietary fats. A topical numbing cream is applied, and injection sites are marked in a grid pattern before treatment. Approximately 20 to 30 injections are administered in specific sites in the fatty area. You will need a series of treatments spaced about one month apart.
  • CoolSculpting® is FDA cleared to eliminate stubborn fat in nine different areas of the body, including under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen, flanks, bra fat, back fat, and the upper arms. There are seven applicators to choose from to freeze the fat. Once the fat cells are dead, they are naturally eliminated from the body. Multiple treatments may be needed to achieve desired results.
  • Tumescent Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and does not require general anesthesia. A local anesthetic is injected into the targeted fatty tissue. It firms the fat and numbs the area, making Liposuction more comfortable and efficient. Microcannulas are then introduced below the skin and suctions the fat gently. This technique makes Liposuction more comfortable, efficient, and safer.
  • Evoke is an innovative new hands-free and pain-free remodeling technology that deploys radiofrequency energy to lift and tighten treated skin. This procedure remodels the deep skin tissues and subcutaneous layers in the cheeks, jawline, or submental area without surgeries, scalpels or downtime. Dr. Ostad and his aesthetic team personalize each treatment to your specific needs, ensuring you achieve your aesthetic goals with natural results.

Recovery

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.
