Liposuction Chin Tunisia: double chin liposuction

Liposuction chin Tunisia: what is chin surgery?

Chin liposuction is a facial cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to remove excess fat located under the chin on the neck. It is the ideal treatment for a problem known as double chin, which mainly affects men and women aged 40 or older. With age, the area below the chin begins to accumulate fatty residue that is unfortunately very difficult to eliminate with sports and diet. Liposuction of the chin can treat this problem and refine the oval of the face and the neck.

As with any other liposuction, the results can be permanent and long-lasting if the patient is careful with his or her weight.  It should be noted that double chin liposuction is performed on excess fat and not on the skin. If it is the skin that is in excess, the patient will be advised to consider a genioplasty in order to remedy this problem.

Double chin liposuction in Tunisia: what you need to know before you start

The first step is the pre-operative check-up. The surgeon asks you questions about your general health and performs a morphological examination of your face to identify the problem. This examination allows him to evaluate the characteristics of the skin and to determine the appropriate technique to treat the problem. He will then discuss with you the risks, recovery time and cost of the procedure, as well as the possibility of combining liposuction with other medical procedures.

*Disclaimer: results may vary from one person to another depending on the morphology of the patients.

How is double chin liposuction performed in Tunisia?

Liposuction of the chin is done under general or local anesthesia. It lasts about 30 minutes and does not require hospitalization.

A tiny incision is made under the chin (at the level of the crease, to avoid a visible scar). A very fine cannula (2mm) is then inserted through the incision and the fat is suctioned out.

This procedure is sometimes combined with other facial surgeries, such as blepharoplasty, liposuction of the cheeks or cervical face lift.

Liposuction of the chin is generally not painful. If there is pain, it is slight and can be soothed with simple painkillers.

A feeling of tension in the chin is felt. It takes about 1 month for this to disappear and for the skin to regain normal sensitivity.

A chin strap should be worn for 2 weeks. It is important to avoid exposing the operated area to the sun during the 3 months following the operation.

Daily activities can be resumed after 3 days. Sports activities can be resumed after 3 weeks, as long as they do not present any risk to the chin.

Mouth bleeding is frequent but not serious. It is recommended to maintain a very good oral hygiene to avoid any risk of infection.

There is an appearance of edema (swelling) and bruising which will disappear after 2 weeks.

The final result will be visible after 3 months.

As far as anesthesia is concerned: during the consultation, the anesthesiologist will inform the patient of the risks of anesthesia. The fact of having recourse to a perfectly competent anesthesiologist, practicing in a real surgical context (recovery room, possibility of resuscitation) means that the risks incurred have become statistically very low.
It is important to know that techniques, anesthetic products and monitoring methods have made immense progress over the last thirty years, offering optimal safety, especially when the operation is performed outside of an emergency and on a person in good health.

As far as the surgical procedure is concerned, by choosing a qualified and competent plastic surgeon, trained in this type of procedure, you limit these risks as much as possible, without however eliminating them completely.
Real complications are exceptional after a quality liposuction: a great rigor in the choice of the indication and the surgical realization must ensure in practice an effective and real prevention.

To be complete, we must however mention, despite their usual rarity
– Thrombo-embolic accidents: wearing anti-thrombosis stockings, getting up early, and possible anti-coagulant treatment help to reduce this risk.
– Bleeding is rarely serious, unless there is an associated coagulation disorder or the patient is taking medication that promotes bleeding.
– Hematoma and lymphatic effusion appear exceptionally after a correctly performed liposuction.
– Similarly, localized skin necrosis, which lengthens the healing process and can leave scars, should no longer be observed.
– Infection is rare in this type of “closed” surgery and can be prevented by prescribing a prophylactic antibiotic treatment.
– Alterations in sensitivity can sometimes persist in the treated areas, but it usually returns to normal within 3 to 12 months.
