Double chin surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure that helps to contour and create a more defined jawline. The procedure involves removing excess chin fat and skin resulting in a sleeker, more youthful appearance. It can be combined with neck lipo or a neck lift to remove excess skin and fat and tighten the skin around your neck leaving you with a beautifully defined and slim throat.
Our cosmetic doctor will help you set realistic expectations, answer your questions and discuss if double chin and neck liposuction is the right course of treatment for you at your first appointment.
There are many associated benefits with neck and double chin liposuction procedures for redefining your jaw, chin and neckline:
- Improved self-confidence
- A firmer, youthful facial appearance.
- Same-day surgery
- Short surgical procedures with only mild sedation
- Fast recovery times.
Neck and double chin liposuction procedures for the removal of double chins and defining your neckline have many benefits.

What happens on the day of the chin liposuction procedure?
This procedure is a day surgery performed with a local anaesthetic and sedation so you won’t feel any pain.
Once the local anaesthetic is injected and your chin area is completely numb, a small incision is made under your chin. A thin, hollow tube called a catheter is inserted through this incision and the fat cells will be sucked out. This small incision is then sutured closed.
What does recovery from double chin treatment involve?
Recovery is relatively straightforward after your procedure.
You will have some bruising and swelling, but this will start to settle after approximately 5 days. You will wear a chin and neck compression garment to aid with the swelling and healing post-surgery. You can return to your normal activities and work 1-2 days after your procedure.

Read through the commonly asked chin liposuction questions below.
Yes, chin lipo can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a neck lift, neck liposuction or a chin implant. It is always best to discuss options and expectations with your surgeon and they can tailor a specific package to you.
If you follow the recommendations of your surgeon then the results are long-lasting. The chin lipo removes fat cells from your chin and upper neck area permanently.
Our highly skilled surgeons strive to not leave any visible scars post this procedure. The incision site is tiny and placed in a less noticeable area of your chin so scarring won’t be visible and will fade over time.
We recommend you wait until the day after your procedure to have a shower, and then be mindful of your incision sites. Don’t scrub the sites and pat gently to dry with a soft towel.
A chin procedure does not include your cheeks. It targets your chin and upper neck. However, you will notice once the fat cells have been removed your features will look slimmer and more sculpted.
You cannot drive home on the day of your surgery as you will have a sedative for your procedure and may be drowsy. You will need someone to drive you home.
You can eat your normal diet after the procedure, there are no restrictions. We do recommend you stick to a healthy and nutritious diet to maintain the results of your surgery.
You may notice results immediately after your surgery, however, it can take up to 2 to 4 weeks for the swelling and bruising to subside. After this period you will notice a big difference in the shape of your chin but it can take 3 months to see the full results.
We recommend you allow yourself 1 to 3 days to recover before you resume exercising and return to your normal activities.
In the first 5 days after your procedure, we recommend you avoid alcohol to reduce the risk of excessive bruising, swelling and bleeding and negative interactions with any medication you may have.
