Your Questions Answered!
Chin liposuction is a procedure designed to define your features and eradicate the troublesome “double” chin. If you struggle with excess bulk along the lower face, Advanced Body Sculpting (ABS) Institute can help.
Under the esteemed leadership of Dr. Zuhlke, ABS will transform your chin from shapeless to shapely. Below, we will discuss the myriad benefits of liposuction and how they apply to your appearance. Please contact our Denver office either through our convenient online portal or by calling (303) 708-8770.
What Is Chin Liposuction?
Liposuction is a fat removal process that targets unwanted deposits and gently extracts them from the body. If you have a double chin, liposuction may be just what the doctor ordered! Dr. Zuhlke begins the liposculpture procedure by administering tumescent fluid to the submental region (below the ridge of the chin).
Tumescent liquid contains lidocaine, so it helps to numb the treatment area. The fluid also bathes fat stores until they are soft and pliable. Once the fat deposit beneath the chin has been sufficiently treated, Dr. Zuhlke contours the area with a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula uses reverse pressure to skillfully and safely vacuum away unwanted fat cells.
Benefits of Booking with ABS
In the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Zuhlke, a cannula becomes a magic wand. He does not simply sculpt your ideal chin; he creates the best version of you possible. Your enhancement journey does not end once your procedure is over. ABS offers skin tightening treatments after every liposuction procedure we perform.
Chin liposuction is a focused, elegant process that requires a delicate, precise touch. You will only need a local anesthetic, so you do not need to worry about navigating the fog of general anesthesia. Local anesthetics mean less downtime and fewer days off work. These are just some of the many benefits you will experience when you schedule your chin liposuction procedure with ABS Institute.
Liposuction vs. Kybella
Some med spas advertise a non-surgical approach to double chin reduction called Kybella. Kybella is an injectable that utilizes deoxycholic acid to trigger the body’s ability to absorb fat from within. The results of Kybella can be a bit unpredictable. Asymmetry often occurs as the body chooses which fat cells to diminish. Kybella can leave the chin looking lopsided or uneven.
Patients who opt for Kybella are often required to undergo multiple treatments to achieve their desired look. Potential side effects include muscle damage and trouble swallowing.
Liposuction, on the other hand, is a time-tested, long-lasting solution to unwanted fat under the chin. Dr. Zuhlke gets the job done right the first time rather than engaging in an endless trial and error process.

Am I an Eligible Candidate?
If you are a healthy individual with realistic expectations for facial rejuvenation, then you may be an ideal candidate for chin liposuction. Please inform your ABS team if you have a history of severe coagulation disorders such as thrombophilia. Patients with chronic cardiovascular issues may also be ineligible for liposuction. Dr. Zuhlke can determine your candidacy for chin liposculpture during your thorough consultation.
Personal Consultation in Denver
The world-class aesthetic results you will achieve at ABS begin with world-class communication. You tell us how we can help and we will formulate a strategy to do so. In the spirit of excellent communication, we regularly update our blog. Feel free to read through our posts and bring any questions that may arise to your consultation appointment.
The purpose of this article is to present a series of frequently asked questions (FAQ) to illuminate the art and science of chin liposuction. But your questions may be geared to your specific case. That is why we are eager to listen to you and answer any concerns that pertain specifically to your anatomy and goals. If you find yourself at a loss for words on the date of your consultation, here are some handy conversation starters to keep in mind:
- Is my face too wide for chin liposuction?
- Will liposuction make my jawline more pronounced?
- Given my medical history, am I a viable candidate?
- How subtle are the results?
- How much fat can you remove from my chin?
To answer these queries and many more, contact ABS Institute at your earliest convenience.
Preparation and Procedure
During your consultation, you will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for chin liposuction. These directions will be customized to your case, so please follow them closely. In general, it is advisable to quit smoking at least three weeks prior to any invasive procedure. Tobacco products impede the healing process, and we want you at peak performance to enjoy the benefits of your chin enhancement.
Dr. Zuhlke may also recommend that you cease taking certain supplements. Blood-thinners may add to the risk of bruising and bleeding, so be ready to share your current list of medications for the doctor’s assessment.
On the day of your chin liposuction procedure, please wear loose fitting clothes. We want you to feel right at home, and cumbersome outfits may get in the way of that goal. Dr. Zuhlke will meet with you one last time to review the specifics of your chin liposuction treatment. He will mark the skin with pre-op lines to indicate where the cannula will sculpt away unwanted fat.
When it is time for your tumescent liposuction procedure to begin, a medical professional will administer the proper local anesthetic. Once you are sufficiently anesthetized, Dr. Zuhlke will apply his considerable expertise to crafting the chin of your dreams.
What Is the Recovery Time for Chin Liposuction?
Immediately following your chin liposuction procedure, you will be escorted to a private room where a caring ABS team member will monitor your progress. Once you are ready to resume your recovery from the comfort of home, we will release you into the care of a loved one.
You should plan to take at least two days off work following the date of your liposuction treatment. Avoid strenuous activity for approximately ten days, but consult ABS with any specific questions you have about resuming your normal routine. “Normal” means very different things to different patients!
When Will I See the Results?
The results of your chin liposuction will manifest themselves in several distinct waves. You will notice an immediate improvement in the size and dimensions of your chin, but these rewards will continue to emerge as your body adapts to its new contours. It may take 1-3 months for the full results of your chin liposuction to take shape.
Complementary and Alternative Procedures
Chin liposuction is a fantastic method of facial rejuvenation, but it is just one component in your quest to be the best. To experience the full suite of ABS services, explore the options below.
The belly is often the most difficult area of the body to flatten. Abdominal liposuction accentuates your natural midsection and reveals the six-pack abs you have worked so hard to create.
Liposuction for Arms
If excess bulk is obscuring your triceps, biceps, and general attractiveness, consider the benefits of arm liposuction. You can wave goodbye to “bat wings” and hello to upper body splendor.
Liposuction is a great way to remove unwanted fat, but you may also wish to build muscle mass as part of your comprehensive road to rejuvenation. EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to promote thousands of muscular contractions in the span of 30 minutes!
Let’s check the scoreboard: you have already sculpted away bothersome fat with liposuction, toned and strengthened your physique via EMSCULPT, so what’s left? How about addressing the loose, sagging skin along your midriff? After pregnancy or significant weight loss, the belly can appear withered and droopy. Dr. Zuhlke can alleviate lax skin along the midsection with a tummy tuck procedure. Show off your V-shape or hourglass figure with pride!
Regardless of which procedures work best for your goals, Advanced Body Sculpting Institute is your premier destination for enhancement done right. Contact us online to embrace your best self.
