Are you unhappy with your Double Chin or profile in the mirror?
Do you want a solution to your double chin? Our plastic surgery center in New Haven CT offers you several ways to help you like your neck again! During your free consultation you will learn about the following as effective, non-surgical and surgical treatment options.
What is the cost?
Each treatment option has its own pricing which will be discussed when you come to our top plastic surgery center and medspa. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will discuss each option, their costs and what results you should expect after each procedure. Some people develop their double chin over time and some people are just not happy with their profile and wish to gain a more sculptured chin/neckline area. Either situation can be helped with one of these 4 procedures.
NON SURGICAL OPTIONS FOR YOUR DOUBLE CHIN
Kybella has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of chin-based fat and no other area of the body. Our cosmetic surgeons will inject deoxycholic acid which breaks up dietary fat, making your body naturally absorb it. This is the latest in non-surgical treatments that can aesthetically improve your chin and neckline area. Kybella works well for those who do not want to undergo surgery and for those who have lost weight but still show a sagging profile in their neck.
At least 2 Kybella treatments are usually necessary to maximize a change in chin profile. Treatments can be spaced as close as 4-6 weeks apart.

Are you looking for a nonsurgical procedure that also offers no needles and no downtime? You may be a perfect candidate for the non-invasive CoolSculpting treatment to reduce fat under the chin and help contour the neckline. A free consultation with our top cosmetic surgeons will show you before and after pictures of many happy clients, as well as review costs for CoolSculpting the neck area. Multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results. All of this will be discussed privately when you sit down with either of Connecticut’s top plastic surgeons, Deborah Pan, MD or Javier Davila, MD.
The CoolSculpting procedure results in a noticeable and measurable reduction of fat in the treated area. Most patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of one to three months. Every patient is unique, so patients are encouraged to talk to their physician about a customized treatment plan as part of the initial consultation. Additional treatments in the same or multiple areas may enhance the desired aesthetic effect.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE OPTION FOR YOUR DOUBLE CHIN
Chin liposuction (also called submental liposuction) is designed to reduce excess fat under the chin, or in the neck, and jowls. These fat collections are often not metabolized easily with diet and exercise, and thus rarely improve with weight loss. Subplatysmal fat is especially stubborn and can be prevalent in your neck regardless of your overall body weight. Sometimes eliminating your double chin requires a little extra help.
Procedure and recovery
Most patients have liposuction of the neck (with or without the laser) under local anesthesia. They walk in, have the procedure, and drive themselves home. They can return to work immediately although they are required to wear a chin strap garment.
Successful liposuction of the chin area will best be determined by the quality of the skin and patient compliance. During your consultation at our premiere Connecticut medspa, our two board-certified plastic surgeons, Deborah Pan MD and Javier Davila MD will evaluate whether you have enough elasticity for the skin to contract after the removal of the underlying fat. In some cases, the best results come from a combination treatment. In addition to a chin liposuction, a neck lift might help remove or tighten loose skin for the best overall result.
