(English) Double Chins Suck (And That’s Exactly What We’ll Do For You)
Don’t we all love a good selfie? With the right app and filter, you can even make your face angular, iron out a double chin and look just the way you would like to. But then again, life isn’t exactly a selfie, and I’ve caught my profile in the mirror looking more “chin-ed out” more often than I would have liked.
The dreaded double chin is a force to be reckoned with. Borne from excess fat, these extra folds in the chin are often caused by weight gain.
But here’s the truth bomb – you can get a double chin, even without the excess baggage. There are a host of other reasons why you may sport a double chin- think genetics, loose skin and aging.
First of all, it’s important to know that we do not have to live with a double chin. If exercise and other modes of weight loss are not working, a plastic surgeon could be your next line of defence. Vaser Liposuction is a breakthrough treatment that uses ultrasound to break down the fat deposits before removing them via suction. Known to work particularly well for small pockets of fat, Vaser Liposuction is perfect for that hard-to-get-rid-of double chin!
Vaser Liposuction Explained
The procedure starts off with an injection of a numbing agent, to ensure maximum comfort during the removal of fat on the double chin area. This is followed by small incisions below the ears and under the chin, where a small ultrasonic probe is inserted. The probe emits high frequency energy to shake the fat cells loose, so that they can be extracted from the double chin. This fat is then gently removed via a suction technique.
Will I see a visible difference?
Yes, indeed! Chiselled jawlines via Vaser Liposuction are no longer just what dreams are made of. Not only does the procedure remove excess fat from multiple chins, it also works to tighten the skin on top. While optimal results take at least a month to show post-surgery, they definitely deliver when it comes to that chiselled, angular jawline.
What about pain and recovery after liposuction?
This procedure is categorized under day surgery and is done under sedation, and is therefore painless.
