If we consider skin aging, the neck is the first place that shows age. This is because fat is more likely to collect under the chin than in other body parts.

The extra fat and loose skin will affect their jaw and facial profile. Some treatments you make take into consideration, including a double chin laser for those who are massive fans of new laser treatments.

The laser is designed to tighten the skin, increase collagen, and strengthen the muscles around the affected area.

Some other methods include chin liposuction, Jaw Reduction Surgery, and neck lift. 

Type of double chin surgery

Many people prefer to start with a double chin laser treatment, but if the size of the double chin is advanced, the laser may not be beneficial. In this case,

the surgeon will recommend one of the following: 

Chin liposuction 

is a procedure that removes the extra fat under the chin through suction or a small open incision. 


 Another standard procedure combines both chin liposuction and small incisions under the chin. This procedure tightens the muscles and improves skin elasticity. 

Neck lift

Neck Lift Turkey is also called a lower rhytidectomy. It removes excess skin and tightens the muscles around the neck to offer a more contoured appearance of the face. It can also be done with Fat Transfer to the Cheeks.

All procedures can reduce the appearance of a double chin. However, if your skin isn’t very elastic and has a hairy appearance, you may not be a good candidate for liposuction or submentoplasty. 

HayatMed, located in Istanbul, is highly experienced in performing Neck Lift Surgery surgeries with satisfactory results, according to our patients’ evaluations.
