A leading AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice based in Manhattan, NYC, bodySCULPT® is always ahead with the latest technologies and treatments. The plastic surgeons are providing the newly FDA-approved CoolSculpting® treatment to resolve fat under the jaw. This procedure is unique in that it can effectively resolve a double chin without injections or surgery.
This non-invasive procedure by Zeltique Aesthetics has gained popularity since it was introduced to treat stubborn fat pockets in areas such as abdomen, flank (love handles), inner thighs and outer thighs. Now, the FDA has approved it to treat a double chin. CoolSculpting® Zeltique uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise.
The plastic surgeons at this Manhattan-based practice are experts in performing this non-invasive procedure and can provide noticeable and lasting results. The treatment, which involves very little downtime, involves applying a specially designed cooling applicator to the targeted site. Double chin treatment is performed using CoolMini™, a more scaled-down applicator appropriate for this delicate area. The affected area is sucked into this hand piece as it is being chilled and the fat is destroyed without aggravating the nerves located along the jaw line. The frozen fat cells that get collected underneath the chin are gently massaged away by the surgeon.
This CoolSculpting procedure offers several advantages over other treatments for a double chin:
- No knives or suction hoses
- No needles or anesthetics
- No surgical incisions or scars
- Short treatment session of around 1 hour
- Surrounding tissues are preserved
- Permanent removal of fat
Some redness and swelling can be expected, but resolve soon. Complete results appear within a few months.
The short duration of the treatment, quick recovery and minimal to no discomfort make this procedure an ideal option to treat a double chin. The surgeons at this NYC-based surgical practice carefully assess individual goals, concerns, and preferences to set up customized treatment plans. Patients are provided personalized end-to-end care and follow-up till complete recovery.
