“All my life I’ve had a double chin… until now.

… I finally have a jawline and profile I’m happy about.”

Double Chin Cincinnati, OHIn the words of one of our patients…
“From the time I was a teenager, my double chin was all I ever saw in the mirror or in photos of myself. I’m not overweight. A double chin just happens to run in my family. I tried to hide it by wearing turtlenecks or scarves around my neck, but that only seemed to bring more attention to the bulge. I tried creams and lotions, tightening treatments, head wraps, facial exercises, everything I could find. Some of it seemed to help a little, but not for more than a few months. None of it was worth the cost.”

Like many people, this patient wanted to put off having surgery at all costs, until she saw the results a coworker had after having submental liposuction, a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia by Dr. Robert J. Smyth, face and neck rejuvenation surgeon and specialist in Cincinnati, OH. Submental liposuction takes about 30 minutes. Performed under strictly local anesthesia by Dr. Smyth, patients feel no pain or discomfort and avoid the risks and recovery associated with general anesthesia. After the procedure, which Dr. Smyth performs at a renowned and easy-to-access outpatient treatment center, patients leave with a small bandage over the tiny incision strategically placed under the chin where no one can see it. Some patients may experience a bit of bruising that can easily be covered with makeup. Most go back to work and resume activities within two days post-procedure. The patient’s double chin is gone, and results can last for decades provided they don’t gain any large amounts of weight.

If you’re looking for a solution to a double chin, be sure to weigh all of your options –- submental liposuction, Kybella, CoolSculpting, and/or a lower facelift/necklift –– based on your age and the resilience of your skin (which determine your results), the experience of the facial cosmetic specialist performing the procedure, and the cost and return on your investment.

The good news is that you don’t need to fret about a double chin for a lifetime. You can take next steps and start feeling better about yourself right now.
