Should You Consider Double chin correction?

A double chin is one of the most common complaints with patients who want to improve the appearance of their neck. The double chin refers to the excess fat and skin in the neck area. Many people feel it is an unattractive feature, and thus try to camouflage it with scarves and turtlenecks.

However, different treatments can improve the look of a double chin, and it can be difficult for patients to know which technique is most appropriate for them.

Dr. Boudana offers a wide range of treatments to correct a double chin, from non-surgical procedures (CoolSculpting®, injection of lipolytic agents) to surgical procedures (neck liposuction with or without a face lift).

What are the procedure techniques and scars

There are several treatments available to correct a double chin:

  • Liposuction with or without a neck lift;
  • Cryolipolysis: CoolSculpting®;
  • Injection of lipolytic agents (Belkyra®).

Neck liposuction - Surgical method

Neck liposuction can be performed under local or general anaesthesia depending on your preference. The procedure sucks fat from under the chin using a cannula, which is inserted into a small incision in the neck. This is a surgical procedure that must be performed in the operating room and has a recovery time of a few days.

This treatment is recommended when there is a large amount of fat in the neck area.

It can be combined with a neck lift if there is significant excess skin that needs to be lifted.

CoolSculpting® - Nonsurgical method

Cryolipolysis, a revolution in non-invasive treatments.

CoolSculpting® is a Health Canada and FDA approved device for the treatment of localized excess fat. The treatment consists in freezing and killing fat cells, which will then be naturally eliminated from the body. The treatment is sometimes used as an alternative to liposuction and is suitable for patients who are not or only slightly overweight and who have little to no excess skin.

The CoolScultpting® session is performed at the clinic and lasts approximately 45 minutes to one hour. The treatment is virtually painless and recovery is immediate.

Belkyra® - Nonsurgical method

Desoxycolic acid injections.

Belkyra® treatments consist in injecting a lipolytic agent, i.e. a substance that melts fat, into the neck. This substance dissolves fat, which your body will naturally reabsorb in a few weeks. This technique is suitable for patients with little to no excess fat in the neck/chin area and in patients with little to no excess skin.

It is a non-invasive, simple, painless treatment, performed at the clinic and recovery is immediate.

Several injections over a period of a few months may be required to obtain the desired result.

  • Anaesthesia:
    Varies according to the technique
  • Duration:
    45 minutes to 1.5 hours
  • Pain level:
    1/10 to 4/10 depending on the technique
  • Recovery time:
    0 to 2 weeks depending on the technique
  • Resumption of physical activities:
    1 to 4 weeks depending on the technique

Procedure details

During the consultation, Dr. Boudana will be very attentive to your expectations. The choice of technique will depend on many factors: skin quality, quantity of excess skin, muscle relaxation, and the presence of excess fat in the neck and chin area.

However, your expectations and the desired result are the most important factor in choosing the right treatment. But not all goals are realistic, and it is important to understand what surgery can and cannot accomplish. If applicable, Dr. Boudana can suggest complementary procedures such as blepharoplasty, or a facelift, or can recommend nonsurgical treatments such as CoolSculpting® or Belkyra® injections.

Only requiring tiny incisions and small cannulas, our expert surgeons can remove fat from the chin with the tumescent liposuction method, which is not only very safe but incredibly effective, offering the following benefits:

  • Mild sedation is all that is required, avoiding the use of general anaesthesia
  • A shorter period of downtime and recovery leave the clinic the same day as the procedure
  • Minimal scarring that is strategically placed to be inconspicuous
  • Long-lasting results
  • A popular way to tone and reshape the face
  • The removal of excess fat with less discomfort
  • A greater sense of self-confidence when you look in the mirror every day

After surgery, swelling is possible but varies depending on the amount of liposuction performed and on the patient. The pain is very moderate.

We do not recommend resuming physical activities in the first week, but office work can usually be resumed the day after the surgery.


Look More Youthful and Elegant

Double chin correction creates a firmer, smoother, and more refined appearance to the neck, chin, and underjaw area. This can help you look younger, more balanced, or as if you’ve lost weight.
