Ageing features in the chin can occur as early as your 30s. The sharp pulled-up skin under your chin may slowly disappear, revealing a “turkey neck” and start becoming more apparent in the mirror. With overweight people, the neck can develop localised fat deposits.
Excessive stubborn fat under the chin is one of the hardest things to get rid of. Loose sagging skin is a very visible sign of age or weight-gain, or simply genetics. In medical terms, it is called buccal fat and submental fat, and is present in everyone - the only difference is how visible they are. Double chins are extremely frustrating as they don’t necessarily appear from being overweight, and oftentimes, diet and exercise can’t specifically target that area.
Today, there are multiple solutions to combat this issue, and achieve a smaller and more V-line chin.
Double Chin Reduction Through Threadlifts, HIFU Sygmalift and
Secret Botox Lifting Techniques
Threadlifts are a made up of biodegradable material that are 100% absorbed into the body. Threadlifts can be used for a variety of areas, including the cheeks, laugh lines, eyebrows, jawline and neck. These threadlifts for the double chin work by tightening up the skin and stimulating natural collagen growth around the skin surrounding the neck to give a firmer and more defined appearance.
Threadlifts work by providing support through an immediate lifting and anchoring of soft tissue. The threads act as suspension lines, holding the soft tissues in place.
Under-chin thread lift requires moderate lift, which uses threads with mini-barbs for better grip. With little downtime, patients can achieve more dramatic and immediate results. Both the threads and barbs will naturally and eventually be dissolved by the body’s enzymes, stimulating new collagen formation. Progressive tightening is achieved through stimulating the collagen, providing natural firming and tightening over 3 - 6 months.
When combined with HIFU Sygmalift, we are able to not just tighten the skin with the use of threads, but also melt unwanted fats at the chin area. With no pain and no down time through this unique fat melting procedure, you will get the definition not only over the double chin area but also over the entire jaw and neck area creating the definition you need.
Depending on your expectations, the doctors at The Clifford Clinic will recommend the number of threads required to achieve the desired results.
HOW DOES THIS PROCEDURE WORK?
Local anaesthesia is carefully injected into the entry and exit locations. The threads are then gently inserted and passed through the skin to induce the lift at the chin area. The whole procedure would take just around 30 minutes - 1 hour. There’s no scarring, and the results will be immediate! Thread lifts for the double chin is also an art. Through unique methods and precise placement of the entry and exit points of the threads, our doctors are able to accurately tighten the reduce any unwanted sagginess of the fats under the chin, hence reducing the appearance of the double chin as well as recreate a new jawline definition.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
With proper maintenance in between, the threadlifts are expected to last at least 1.5 years.
There is no one size fits all technique – our highly experienced doctors at The Clifford Clinic will perform a consultation and suggest the best treatment for your double-chin woes.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Mild bruising and swelling may occur after the procedure, but will be resolved on its own.
