What is Chin Liposuction in Thailand?

Chin liposuction in Thailand is a relatively non-invasive and is considered a minor but very effective Cosmetic Surgery procedure. Typical areas on the body where liposuction is performed are the thighs, abdomen and buttocks, but many people are now opting for the fat under the chin.

How does Chin Liposuction Perform in Thailand

It’s a tricky area, as exercise can have little to no effect on the chin area. So to remove the famous “double chin” the surgeon will make a very small incision under the chin, insert a small stainless steel tube known as a cannula and suction out the fat from between the skin and muscle.

The suctioning process creates small tunnels through the fat layer that later collapse after the operation, creating a thinner body contour, thus eliminating the appearance of a double chin. This procedure can be performed with only a local anesthetic and is considered outpatient surgery.

What Result Can I Expect?

The human body has a determinate number of fat cells that grow or shrink with varied amounts of caloric intake and exercise. Liposuction removes some of the fat cells in an area of the body resulting in an immediate smaller contour.

Due to the fact that some fat cells remain, a client without a good diet or healthy amount of exercise may stretch out remaining fat cells in time, resulting in a less permanent result.

Those patients maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will enjoy continued smaller contours.

Chin Liposuction Recovery

Chin Liposuction Recovery varies from patient to patient and depends on a variety of factors.  We generally recommend that patients take a week off from work following this procedure because of swelling and bruising.  The majority of patients feels good in about 24 to 48 hours, but may not feel presentable for at least a week. 

It is recommended that patients wear a compression garment under the chin in the days following surgery. This should be considered part of the recovery time if the use of a compression garment would inhibit work or strenuous activity. Sutures or stitches may be removed after about five to ten days.

Patients are able to resume most activities in about one to two weeks, but heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 4 to 6 weeks following surgery. In addition, it’s also important to avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, Motrin and other drugs that can cause bleeding.  When these steps are taken bruising and swelling are minimized and recovery periods tend to be shorter.

Preparing for Chin Liposuction

If you wish to undergo Chin Liposuction, ensure that you are mentally and emotionally strong, because, quite a few people have experienced a period of depression post surgery. Take time to explain to the surgeon about your requirement and expectations so that common understanding is arrived. This will help your surgeon reveal what can realistically be achieved.

Once decided, your surgeon will call you for two sittings. During the first sitting, the surgeon explains as what to expect from chin liposuction. The surgeon takes some pictures of you and then explains the post surgical effects with the help of computer assisted morphing technology. The procedure also enables the surgeon to understand your unique facial anatomy.

During the second sitting, the surgeon evaluates you physically for any active disease and pre-existing medical condition. If you are taking medicines like oral contraceptives, aspirin-containing medications, your surgeon might ask you to stop the same for a while. You will also be advised to stop smoking before Chin Liposuction. Diabetes patients must have their sugar levels under control before undergoing chin liposuction. Radiological tests for chin liposuction are generally prescribed for patients with unusual facial anatomy. However, your surgeon will decide whether you need any laboratory tests before your surgery

What are the Risks and Complications?

Common side effects of liposuction include bruising, swelling, pain and numbness. Scarring will vary per individual based on hereditary factors that affect skin healing, but because the incision for chin liposuction is so small it will usually be very minimal and if with BodyTite technique, there will be no scar at all.

Most common side effects last for a brief period of a few weeks. Depending on the area of the body that was operated upon, limited mobility may also be a temporary side effect.

In some rare circumstances complications may arise due to liposuction surgery. Patients undergoing liposuction should be aware that infection, skin necrosis, contour irregularities and burns are all possible complications.

As Chin Liposuction does not require general anesthesia and is for a small area on the body, it is one of the safest liposuction procedures with a very low chance of complications.
