Chin liposuction is the procedure of removing the excess fat from around the chin. This can make the chin more defined and visible, giving a nicer shape to the face. Chin liposuction is suitable for any man or woman over the age of 18 who has excess fat on their chin that they want to remove.

How do I prepare for Chin Liposuction?

Even though chin liposuction is a straightforward surgical procedure, it is still a surgical procedure. Therefore you must prepare in the same way. You shouldn't consume any alcoholic beverages during the week prior to chin liposuction, and you should stop taking a medication which thins the blood, as this could cause severe blood loss during the chin liposuction surgery. Prior to any liposuction you should talk to your consultant about how to prepare for the chin liposuction.

During Chin Liposuction

Chin liposuction is performed under local, or general anesthetic depending on how extreme the liposuction is. Once the area is numb the liposuction surgeon will normally inject the chin area with a formula which will turn the fat into liquid. An incision will then be made for the hollow tube which will vacuum out the liquefied fat. After all the unwanted fat from the chin area is removed a compression garment, i.e a bandage will be applied to the chin to aid the healing process.

After Chin Liposuction

Even though all the unwanted fat from the chin has been removed, there will be swelling and bruising which might make your chin look bigger than it actually is. But once the swelling has gone down then you will see a noticeable difference. With the bruising and swelling will come some discomfort and pain, so you may need to painkillers for the first few days after the chin lipo. For a full list of side effects from chin liposuction it is best to talk to your chin liposuction consultant. Chin liposuction is a great way of reducing the fat around your face and neck to back the chin more contoured and visible.
