Precise solution for double chin

A double chin is a fold of skin in the area under the chin that is caused by a build-up of fat. It can be caused by a number of reasons: weight changes, aging and genetics can all contribute to the development of this condition. Over time, as part of the aging process, the skin loses elasticity and sags, the connective tissue in the area becomes looser and looser, which can add a few years to your actual age.

Getting rid of the sagging double chin is not an easy task, although it can be reduced by regular exercise and a healthy diet, unfortunately it can still not be completely eliminated. The solution is double chin surgery, which corrects the problematic area.

Youthful, firm neck and chiseled jawline

Double chin surgery is a corrective procedure that:

  • removes excess fat from the neck by liposuction
  • removes excess loose skin

This can put an end to sagging, adipose, loose skin. In many cases, double chin surgery is combined with other plastic surgery procedures (such as a neck lift) to achieve an even more fulfilling result in rejuvenation.

Your neck will be completely rejuvenated

With double chin surgery, the contours of your neck and chin are completely transformed: they become firm, slim and youthful. Thanks to the surgery:

  1. the skin under the chin and on the neck is tightened,
  2. and the excess fat tissue is removed,
  3. wrinkles, creases and folds on the neck are evened out,
  4. your jawline becomes much more defined.
Your neck will be completely rejuvenated


The process starts with a consultation with aplastic surgeon, during which we will create a treatment plan based on your individual needs and discuss the exact course of the surgery and aftercare in detail. Before your double chin surgery, you will have a full check-up, including laboratory tests, X-rays and an ECG to make sure you are ready for a surgery.

On the day of the operation, we will prepare you thoroughly for the 1-1.5 hour procedure. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain. After the preparations, our plastic surgeon will make small incisions in the area under your chin. We then remove excess fat tissue, stitch up the separated neck muscles and get rid of excess skin under the chin and on the neck. At the end of the operation, the wound is closed with absorbable sutures.

After the procedure, you'll spend one night in our clinic and then be discharged the next day with an accompanying adult.

Frequently Asked Questions

Double chin surgery is recommended for both men and women at any age when sagging skin or significant weight gain/loss has resulted in a double chin on the lower face that is disturbing to the patient.

The result of double chin surgery is immediately noticeable, but the final result can be expected after the healing period ends (after about 6 months the final shape will be present).

You should stop smoking and using nicotine-containing products for a few weeks before the operation, as nicotine slows down the healing process significantly. You should also make sure you drink enough water to keep your body properly hydrated.

Avoid tanning and certain facial treatments (e.g. with exfoliants, acid products) for 1 week before the double chin surgery. A few days before the operation, avoid taking blood thinners (e.g. aspirin), vitamin C, selenium, zinc, ginkgo biloba, and other herbal products and alcohol.

After the surgery, you might experience swelling, inflammation, pain and bruising in the treated area, which will gradually subside over a few weeks. For the first few days, it is advisable to cool or ice the swollen area. At the end of the procedure, a compression band will be placed on your neck, which you will need to wear for 1-3 weeks, and then wear it during the night for a few more weeks, as instructed by your doctor.

  • In the days after surgery, plenty of rest is recommended. Sleeping on your back with your upper body elevated and padded is recommended.
  • Keep the treated area dry for 1 week.
  • It is recommended to eat mushy food for a few days to protect your jaw.
  • Avoid activities that stimulate blood flow (e.g. alcohol, hot baths, spicy foods, steam) for 1 week.
  • Physical activity, intense exercise, bending and lifting should be avoided for 6 weeks. 
  • Avoid solarium, sauna and sunbathing for 2 months.

Surgery is not recommended in case of pregnancy, breastfeeding, menstruation, fever or acute illness. Also, in case of diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease or organ damage, a separate consultation with a specialist is recommended before surgery.
