It is said that most likely the true age is determined by the chin, the skin of which is aging faster than of the face. This is one of the most popular procedures among older people. It is performed when the fat layer accumulates in the dewlap at some age. Also, it is often performed for people of all ages who gain weight and thus the double chin is formed, or, conversely, when they lose a lot of weight, therefore, the skin sags and it does not shrink. This surgery is often combined with the face lift procedures.
The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia. During this surgery, the excess fat is sucked and, if needed, the unnecessary, sluggish skin is removed. After the surgery, when swelling is gone, your neck will look more shapely, because the excess skin will not hand and the double chin will not be visible. The image in profile changes the most extremely.
The comment of Dr. G. Papečkys
This area is very important in correcting the age-related facial changes. As years go by, the fat layer accumulates in it, the muscle edges become slack, the underjaw gland falls down. All these changes are corrected surgically, but if they become apparent at younger age due to the problems of obesity and of the congenital undeveloped chin, at present, they also can be corrected by mini-invasive procedures, such as lifting surgical threads, liposuction, chin correction with tissue fillers.
