What is the difference between liposuction or 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).

What is the best solution for treating a double chin?

Victoria Park is pleased to offer multiple options to treat your double chin, this way you can choose the best solution that is right for you, not just the one solution we happen to have.

For cases of a larger double chin (also known as submental fullness), we find that CoolSculpting treatment for double chin can work best. For a smaller double chin, we often recommend Belkyra®. Where there is not an issue of fat, but of skin laxity, we find that Ultherapy or Exilis can work best. We have also found that dermal fillers used for enhancing the jawline can make a big difference in reducing the appearance of double chin.

A consultation with one of our physician specialists where all your questions can be answered is the recommended starting point for determining the treatment program that is just right for you.
