The Gill, which is one of the earliest signs of age, is a common problem in both men and women. In addition to this factor, there are still people who, by genetic inheritance, have a greater predisposition to the accumulation of fat in this region, forming the “double chin”.
To remove the accumulation of fat in the submento, popularly known as the chin, liposuction is a good option as long as there is no sagging skin. In the presence of this, the best option is the association of lipo with skin removal surgery. Through a small hole underneath the earlobe on each side and a furrow below the chin, liposuction is performed throughout the region.
The liposuction procedure is simple, takes about half an hour and should be performed in a surgical center, with local anesthesia plus sedation. The hospitalization has 12 hours, with discharge on the same day. The patient goes home the same day, with a band from the chin to the head, which should be used for 48 hours. The place gets a little swollen in the first week and from there you are already beginning to see the result.
If there is also flaccidity and excess skin on the neck, the liposuction of the chin will have to be associated with the surgery of the double chin. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia and sedation in the surgical center. The cut is done behind the ear. The skin of the neck is loose and drawn behind the ear, leaving a smoother contour. The jowl surgery lasts around one to two hours, and will require a greater rest of the patient, from four to five days. If it is associated with face lift, the patient will need a rest week before returning to normal activities.
