What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction, also known as double chin surgery, is a simple surgical procedure to help get rid of a stubborn double chin.

Chin lipo is intended for those with excess fat around the chin, wrinkling or a lack of a defined jawline, caused by excess skin tissue.

During this procedure, the surgeon will insert a small tube called a cannula in different locations in the chin. The tube is moved back and forth to break down the fat and the loosened fat cells are sucked out of the body. The cannula that is used is very fine, so only small incisions are needed.

As well as removing excess fat, double chin liposuction leaves the patient with a smoother, more defined, profile.

Chin lipo is a popular treatment for both men and women, but for different reasons. Whereas women are seeking this leaner profile, men generally hope to achieve a more chiseled, masculine shape. Fatty deposits in the chin are often an issue for men. Men benefit from a more simple and precise liposuction technique as their skin is thinner and not as elastic as in a woman.

Chin liposuction can be combined with other surgical and non-surgical treatments, such as a neck lift or mini face lift, which focuses on improving the lower portion of the face, for an enhanced result. 

Although double chin liposuction is a great way to remove excess fat, it does not improve skin quality. You may not be a good candidate for double chin liposuction if your skin isn’t very elastic and looks loose and saggy. 

If you are aged over 50 with substantial skin laxity, your consultant may recommend a neck lift instead of chin lipo. A neck lift will correct a double chin and address loose, hanging skin around the neck. Although liposuction is an invasive treatment, chin lipo is less invasive than a neck lift.

Those aged in their 40s or 50s with problematic sagging skin on the lower part of the face, including the chin, jaw, jowls and upper neck, would benefit from a mini face lift, either with or without chin liposuction.

Your surgeon will be able to discuss all the available treatment options with you at your initial consultation.

  • To restore a more chiseled, masculine appearance to the male face
  • Desire for a quick result
  • To restore definition to the lower part of the face
  • Double chin is causing unhappiness or insecurity

Chin Liposuction Surgeons

We have invited a selection of the country's very best consultants to join us at the Cadogan Clinic so that you can be sure that whatever the nature of your treatment, you will be seeing one of the top practitioners in the country.

What to expect

Below you will find some key information to help you prepare for surgery and make necessary arrangements to ensure you have the support you need and that everything runs smoothly on the day.

Your journey with the Cadogan Clinic will start with up to two consultations with one of our leading specialist plastic surgeons at our award-winning premises in Chelsea. These consultations will take between 30 and 60 minutes.

During your consultation, your surgeon will ask about your expectations for your double chin surgery and talk about what will happen during the procedure. They will also explain how the procedure will affect you.

It is important that you are open and honest about what you hope to achieve through surgery to help ensure the best possible result. Your surgeon will be happy to answer any questions you may have at this point. It may be a good idea to write your questions down before attending the consultation. Having established what you want from the surgery, and what is possible given your facial anatomy, several key measurements will be made and standard clinical photography will be taken. Your medical history will be discussed and a physical examination will be carried out.

If your surgeon feels you are a good candidate for surgery, you are then invited to consider whether you would like to proceed with your double chin liposuction or not following a two week 'cooling off' period.

If you decide to go ahead with surgery following the cooling off period, the next time you will return to the clinic is on the day of the procedure.

What are the risks?

Chin liposuction is a relatively straightforward procedure. However, like any surgical procedure, there are risks attached.

Common liposuction side effects include:

  • Bruising and swelling
  • Temporary numbness
  • Scarring
  • Inflammation
  • Fluid coming from cuts

Liposuction can occasionally result in:

  • Lumpy and uneven results
  • Bleeding under the skin (haematoma)
  • Persistent numbness
  • Changes in skin colour in the treated area
  • A build-up of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary oedema) 
  • A blood clot in the lungs (pulmonary embolism)

Any type of operation also carries a small risk of:

  • Infection
  • An allergic reaction to anaesthetic
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Developing a blood clot in a vein

Your surgeon will discuss the potential risks with you at your initial consultation.
