What is the Best Procedure to Get Rid of a Double Chin?

Date 21 Oct 2023  

A double chin is caused by age-related sagging of the lower face and neck and a buildup of fatty tissue deposits underneath the chin when one gains weight.

The loss of structure in the jawline as a result of age-related bone loss and soft tissue changes, including more skin laxity, means there is less 'scaffolding' to support the tissues underneath. This can cause the fat pad beneath the chin to sag even more. Fat deposition increases with advancing age and intake of poor diet, contributing to the heaviness and development of the double chin. However, double chin in most people is the result of a genetic component and so weight loss alone will not eliminate it.

Double chin can be reduced or permanently removed with a variety of options. This article explores different procedures to get rid of a double chin and help achieve a cleaner, more youthful appearance for the rest of their life. Read on to see what options you have for double chin reduction in Hyderabad

The right treatment option for you will be determined by your medical practitioner during the initial consultation with the experts at Eternelle Aesthetics.  

Best Procedures to Get Rid of a Double Chin

1. Chin Liposuction

Chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, is a cosmetic minimally invasive surgery designed to remove extra chin and neck fat. This surgery can significantly improve the contours of a double chin and create a more defined jawline, giving people a more youthful appearance.

Individuals with good skin elasticity who want to reduce persistent, stubborn fat deposits localised under their chin are ideal candidates for chin liposuction. Chin liposuction is not suggested for people with loose or sagging skin because it does not treat skin laxity.


Chin liposuction in Hyderabad is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation or sometimes under general anesthesia. The treatment usually takes around an hour to complete, depending on the amount of fat removed and the patient's requirements.

To suction out excess fat from the targeted location, the plastic surgeon uses a small, thin tube known as a cannula. The cannula is introduced underneath the chin through a small incision and moved back and forth by the surgeon to break up and dissolve the fat cells for a more sculpted appearance. Firstly a silicone tube is placed through the chin incision to protect the skin and then a laser-assisted cannula is inserted to melt the fat beneath the double chin skin and suction the undesirable fat cells while tightening the skin. VASER liposuction can be used to close the skin incision, get rid of fat, and improve the contour of the jawline as well as the angle between the chin and the neck. 

For the first few days after liposuction, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. A compression garment or chin strap will be offered to aid in the reduction of swelling and ensure smooth healing. The majority of patients can return to work and normal daily activities within a week, while strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks.

2. Kybella Injection

Kybella can help achieve a sleek, well-defined chin profile by reducing submental fullness. It is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment that does not require any downtime.

Kybella is a good option for healthy people who want to lessen the appearance of a double chin, and those who have lost a lot of weight but still have submental fullness or a double chin. It is a great option for those who are unable to undergo surgery or who choose a less invasive procedure providing remarkable results.


Kybella in Hyderabad is a non-surgical method, the entire procedure will take place in comfortable clinical rooms. The procedure is quick and simple, taking about 20 minutes to complete. 

If required, numbing medication will be given to avoid discomfort during the procedure. The clinical specialist will carefully mark the areas that will be used for the injections on the skin using a specific grid. The temporary grid placed on the chin will subsequently be used as a guide by the specialist to administer 14–50 Kybella injections, depending on the patient's specific needs.

The majority of people who have received Kybella injections are quite happy to experience minimal to no complications, a minimal downtime process, and stunning results that boost their esteem. People who have been treated with Kybella become more attractive, joyful, and self-assured. The benefits of Kybella go beyond the surface.

3. Thread Lift

Some people may have a double chin appearance because of sagging or loose skin on their lower face or neck. A thread lift in Hyderabad is a cosmetic non-surgical procedure that lifts sagging or loose skin from the face or neck for a younger, fresher, more rejuvenated appearance. Thread lifts are also known as the 'lunchtime facelift' or 'weekend lift' because the treatment may be accomplished in a very short period. It is a simple procedure with no incisions or stitches (no scarring) and a short recovery period, allowing patients to resume their usual lives as soon as possible. 

A thread lift is a safe and effective treatment option for people who have loose, sagging skin (skin laxity) around their upper, mid, and lower face and neck.


Thread lifts are performed under local anesthesia. A mild sedative is given thirty minutes before the procedure to help the patient rest.

The surgeon marks the area to be treated before injecting a mixture of local anesthesia and adrenaline into the entry points. The local anesthesia injections ensure that the patients do not feel the threads being stitched into their skin and their post-procedure bruising is minimal.

Once the area is numb, the surgeon uses a needle to make an opening in the skin and insert the threads. The surgeon inserts a dissolvable thread into the jawline and midface using discrete insertion areas. The thread stimulates the production of collagen. Collagen along with elastin and hyaluronic acid help maintain skin’s elasticity, volume, and hydration and ultimately restore facial shape. 

Thread lifts can provide roughly 20% of the lift that a surgical facelift would do. To achieve the best effect, the threads are slid in opposite directions, tugging on the skin. Before the surgeon secures the thread and completes the procedure, little pressure is applied to contour the surface, resulting in clearly lifted, smoother skin.
