Liposuction VS SmartLipo of a double chin and Belkyra?
Liposuction involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure with local anesthesia. There is a special device such as a laser, in the case of SmartLipo, inserted into the fat of the double chin and where the fat is melted. The melted fat is aspirated out and removed. The advantage of liposuction for a double chin, triple chin or even quadruple chin is the immediate removal of fat in a single stage. However, it does require between 3 and 7 days of recovery and a modest degree of bruising and discomfort. Clients seeking a one-time treatment for the removal and improvement of their double chin with modern forms of liposuction, can discuss these options with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. Clients that want a noticeable improvement of a double chin, but performed subtly without any incision, sutures or recovery over time are good candidates for Belkyra Injectable (also known as Kybella injectable procedures in the US).
