A double chin, also known as submental fullness, is a common condition that occurs when a small amount of fat accumulates below the chin. This can happen to both men and women, and regardless of weight, and can be caused by genetics, aging, or even posture.
While there are non-surgical options for reducing double chin, double chin correction surgery is the only way to completely remove the excess fat and create a more defined jawline.
Double chin correction surgery is used to contour the neck and jawline by removing extra fat, tissue, and skin.
Ideal candidates for double chin correction surgery should:
Have excess fat under the chin and jawline that has not responded to diet or exercise
Be in good physical and mental health
Have realistic expectations for the results of surgery

During the consultation for double chin correction surgery, Dr. Anjali will:
Examine your chin and jawline.
Ask about your medical history and current health.
Ask about your goals for double chin correction surgery.
Discuss the potential risks and complications of double chin correction surgery.
Dr. Anjali encourages patients to ask questions and seek clarity about anything related to their surgery, from the procedure itself to all its possible outcomes.
Double chin correction surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, though general anesthesia can be used if desired.
A Double chin is reduced with liposuction at Dr. Anjali's Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, Visakhapatnam. Through a small incision, Dr. Anjali inserts a tiny tube called a cannula through which tumescent fluid is first injected to loosen the fat cells which are then suctioned out of the body through the cannula.
Dr. Anjali then cleans and stitches the incision after removing all of the fat. Finally Dr. Anjali ensures that the site of the operation is secure with a bandage and a chin brace.
After double chin correction surgery, you will need to wear a chin brace for the first few days. This will help support your chin and jaw as you heal. You may also have drains in place to help remove any excess fluid from the surgery site. These drains will be removed after a few days.
You will need to take it easy for the first few days after double chin correction surgery. You should avoid strenuous activity, bending over, and lying flat on your back. You will need to sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling.
Most patients take 1-2 weeks off from work after double chin correction surgery. You will need to avoid wearing makeup or glasses for at least a week.
You will have follow-up appointments with Dr. Anjali to ensure that your double chin correction surgery is healing properly.
