We know that the appearance of a double chin or lax jaw line is the natural results of ageing or weight gain, and there are a few solutions. This condition is known as a ‘double chin’ or submental fat.
This is an invasive surgical procedure that reduces excess skin and fatty tissue, and lifts any lax skin on the neck to redefine the jawline. As a surgical procedure is it conducted under a general anaesthetic in a hospital or approved clinic. Generally entry will be achieved under each ear and has the associated risks of any surgical procedure plus downtime of some weeks, and costs around $5,000 to $8,000.
Suitable for patients with a small amount of fatty tissue but no skin. This treatment is performed under light sedation and is an invasive procedure so involves the risks of infection and anaesthesia, and the resulting downtime, with costs from around $3,500.
A surgical procedure for reducing the excess fatty tissue around the neck and jawline suitable for patients with medium fatty deposits. Expected recovery will be some weeks. This procedure will not improve lines, wrinkles or skintone. Will the fat come back? Because the fat cells have been removed, if you gain weight the fat cannot go back to that area, but can go to other areas where fat cells still exist. Usually just one treatment is necessary. Cost around $3,500
A long lasting, non-surgical and non-invasive solution to excess fat in the submental area, truSculpt uses a technology tested in many studies, which destroys fat cells in a 30 minute in office procedure. Because the ‘hand-piece’ is small it can be tailored precisely to your contours and will not produce the hard edges that some other fat destruction technologies experience. And unlike some other technology needs to heat the skin to only 43 degrees not 70 degrees. Suitable for any skin type or colour and generally 3 treatments are necessary with 4 weeks between each treatment. Costs for 3 treatment package $1,080*
before and 12 weeks after truSculpt
