Women and men commonly want to have their ”double chins” removed. The age ranges from late teenagers to upwards of 70 years old. For younger patients often liposuction or a neck lift will do the trick. For those patients who have weak chins a chin implant will be the most useful technique to correct their problem. For those older men who have loose skin a lower facelift may be necessary to chisel the neck and jaw line and give the definition to the lower face that they are hoping for.
The best technique is really dependant on the given patients anatomy and age. We can best determine that with an in person consultation or very clear photos. The options include chin liposuction, neck lift, thread lift or implants.

Duration of Surgery: 1-3 Hours
