What is Double Aesthetics?
The jowl starts from the chin area and extends down from the lower part of the chin. Double chin aesthetics covers the distance between the chin level and the décolleté area. It is an operation to treat the area of chin , lower face and neck . Jowl liposuction is a method used in jowl aesthetics. Excess fat tissue in the jowl area or adipose tissue that causes sagging is removed by liposuction. If there is a serious sagging of the skin, the excess skin in this area is treated with neck lift surgery. The problem in elderly patients is usually neck skin sagging and surgery is more appropriate. Jowl liposuction is more suitable for young non-smoker patients with tight skin and increased subcutaneous adipose tissue. The jowl area of patients with submuscular fat tissue does not improve with liposuction, and the fat should be removed with open neck surgery. In other words, the fats taken with jowl liposuction in the jowl area are subcutaneous adipose tissue. Patients with sagging jowl areas due to excess weight gain and loss are also more candidates for surgery.
In Which Situations Is Jowl Liposuction Performed?
The jowl starts from the chin area and extends down from the lower part of the chin. It is applied due to the following situations occurring in the jowl area;
- Due to excessive fat tissue of the jowl area,
- if fatty tissue of chin / neck area is subcoutaneous type ( You can understand with palpation of chin. İf fatty tissue is soft nad slight it is probably subcoutaneous fatty tissue ; if it is hard ana excessive and specially in men it is gennraly subcoutaneus + submuscular fatty tissue )
- Neck lift operation is performed due to wrinkles in the jowl area.
Jowl liposuction can be applied to patients of all genders, regardless of male or female. However, since sagging and lubrication of the jowl is more common in women than in men, more women undergo jowl surgery.
Jowl Liposuction Process
Jowl liposuction is a procedure that takes sixty minutes. The patient who has excess fat from the jowl area does not need to be hospitalized. Edema and bruising may occur for one week after the operation. Bruises can last up to 6 -8 weeks. If the chin aesthetic operation was performed with liposuction, it is possible to return to social life within 1 week. Patients do not remove the corset for the first 2 days, and then they should use the corset more frequently for 5-6 days. Some pink liquid may come from the treated area. For 2-3 weeks after the procedure, the patient is recommended to perform a self-made jowl massage to ensure lymph drainage.
If the chin aesthetic operation was performed with liposuction, it is possible to return to social life within 1 week. If the jowl aesthetic operation and neck lift operation was performed, it is possible to return to social life within 10 days. Since the incisions in neck lift surgery are behind the ear and on the scalp, scars are not visible. There are no scars in the double-chin liposuction procedure. There may be redness, bruising, and edema in the applied area for a few days after the double-chin operation. These are considered normal situations. There are no criteria for eating, drinking, or nutrition. However, in the first two days after the procedure, the patient’s jaw movements may be somewhat restricted due to the corset and the pain of the procedure, and she may have to eat soft foods for 1-2 days . It may take several months for the skin to take its new form after it is taken from the jowl area to its fat. The final result is achieved within 3 to 5 months.
