The area of the double chin has become a hot topic lately. With new products such as Kybella and CoolSculpting hoping to decrease the amount of fat below the chin, attention has been drawn to the dramatic effect neck fat removal can have. But the tried and true definitive treatment for a double chin is direct liposuction. Liposuction can be a minimally invasive procedure done in the office under local anesthesia. Dr. Richard Balikian a Temecula Facial Plastic Surgeon is now offering the One Hour Double Chin procedure.  For many people a double chin is something that diet and exercise simply can’t help with. Despite hours working out trying to reduce this little fat pocket when you can have it removed in less than an hour?

Dr. Balikian says, “I have had very athletic clients that work out daily and are in great shape but for some reason they simply can’t get rid of their double chin”.  The body stores fat in many places on a person’s body and under the chin is very common and can be one of the most stubborn fat pockets.

Dr. Balikian is one of the few facial plastic surgeons in Temecula that offer the double chin quick fix.  Dr. Balikian uses Liposuction to extract the fat under the chin and contour the jawline.  The procedure is performed under a local anesthesia so you can have the treatment done at lunch and be on your way, there is minimal down time and recovery is usually only a few days.

Dr. Balikian will make a small incision about a quarter of an inch after a local anesthetic is introduced to numb the areas.  Liposuction is used to extract the fatty pocket and contour the jaw line.  Dr. Balikian says, “it only takes one treatment and the results are very dramatic, it can totally change the profile of a person making them look younger and more fit”.   The skin will continue to tighten over next few months and the results are permanent.

Dr. Balikian is an experienced, double board certified, facial plastic surgeon.  He is double board certified both in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Balikian belongs to a very select group of elite cosmetic surgeons with at least six years of specialized surgical training exclusively in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck.
