OUR TECH

Double Chin Surgery in Vancouver, BC

Some people are frustrated by what is commonly referred to as a double chin. There are some common features that contribute to the appearance of a double chin, and patients may have a combination of the following that are often inherited features from their parents: a lax platysma muscle, excess fat in the neck area, and/or a recessive chin. Patients with any combination of these features may be candidates for double chin surgery—a form of a neck lift.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for double chin surgery?
+
-

Patients with any combination of features including: a lax platysma muscle, excess fat in the neck area, and/or a recessive chin may be candidates for a double chin surgery. Double chin surgery may be appropriate for younger patients under the age of 40 who don’t have any lower face or neck skin laxity. Patients over the age of 40 typically have lower face laxity that would render double chin surgery ineffective. Patients over the age of 40 who have a poor neck angle or double chin are also typically looking for an improvement in the jowls, jawline, and cheek area—making them more ideal candidates for lower facelift surgery.

How is double chin surgery performed?
+
-

An incision is placed just underneath the chin where it is easily hidden. The skin of the neck is elevated to expose the underlying fat. If there is extra fat, it is removed either directly or with liposuction. If the patient has a lax platysma muscle, it is tightly bound with sutures. This allows for significant structural support for the neck and a defined neck angle. If the patient’s chin is recessive, a chin implant is used to create a more prominent chin area. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches. A compression garment must then be worn diligently for several weeks after the surgery.
