Double Chin Liposuction in Dubai

A double chin is a cosmetic condition commonly occurring when a layer of excess fat forms under the chin, mainly due to weight gain, aging, and genetics. It is also known as submental fullness, filling the area between the chin and neck and this often results in a deep crease below the chin, known as a shadow effect, which accentuates the appearance of a double chin. It also distorts the neck and jawline contouring, affecting the aesthetic appearance adversely.

One of the most effective options to treat this problem in Dubai is double chin liposuction, a cosmetic surgery to eliminate submental fullness.

What is Double Chin Liposuction?

Double chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, specifically targets and removes excess fat beneath the chin through a suction technique, improving the chin’s contour. The procedure involves making a small incision, inserting a cannula to dislodge excess fat, and then using a tube to suction out the fat. The aim is to enhance the chin, neck, and jawline contouring in a way that improves your facial and neck appearance.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Double Chin Liposuction In Dubai?

A good candidate for double chin liposuction is someone:

  • Who has excess fat beneath the chin affecting their facial aesthetics
  • Candidates should be in good overall health, without any underlying conditions that could impair healing or increase surgical risks.
  • Candidates should have elastic and firm skin for optimal results, as this affects the skin’s ability to contract after fat removal.
  • Who doesn’t smoke or is willing to commit to stopping smoking for at least six weeks before and after the procedure due to significant impacts on healing and results.
  • With a stable body weight
  • Who is willing to adhere to a healthy lifestyle


Here are some of the several benefits of double chin liposuction in dubai:

  • Double chin liposuction typically eliminates submental fullness in one session, although individual results can vary based on the extent of fat removal and individual healing processes.
  • Compared to more extensive surgical options, double chin liposuction is generally quicker and less painful, with a shorter recovery period. And it may only require local anesthesia.
  • Its results are typically more dramatic and long-lasting than most non-surgical chin reduction options.
  • While results can be long-lasting, maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle is essential to preserve the contouring effects.

Chin Liposuction Procedure

Here are the steps involved in double chin liposuction:

  • The surgeon will mark the treatment area with a pen to outline the sites for incision and fat removal.
  • The treatment area will be cleaned with an antiseptic solution to prevent infection.
  • The type of anesthesia used, whether local with or without sedation, will be determined based on the patient’s health, preferences, and specific procedural needs.
  • A small, strategically placed incision is made, often in a discreet location such as under the chin or behind the earlobes, to minimize visible scarring.
  • The cannula is carefully maneuvered in a back-and-forth or fanning motion to effectively break up and remove excess fat, ensuring even contouring and minimal trauma to the area. Once the target fat is separated, it will be removed using suction.
  • After fat removal, the surgeon will apply bandages and dressings to support the skin during recovery.It’s important that these bandages and dressings are kept clean and dry to prevent infection and support optimal healing.

A double chin liposuction can be combined with a facelift or neck lift. This combination treatment is most commonly provided to patients more likely to have excess loose skin in the neck after fat removal.

Post-Op Care

  • Increase your fluid intake to help with swelling and healing.
  • Keep your head elevated while sleeping for at least a few days to reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Avoid driving if you must take narcotic pain medication.
  • You may wear makeup, but avoid it on the incision sites for at least a week.


Double chin liposuction is less invasive than liposuction on a larger body area. Therefore, its recovery duration is relatively shorter and with fewer complications.

Since it is a surgical procedure, some swelling and discomfort in the treated region are expected. Consult your surgeon for appropriate pain management and follow-up care. Feeling tightness in the lower face and neck due to bruising and swelling is normal and typically subsides as the healing progresses.

Drainage tubes, if placed, are a normal part of the procedure to prevent fluid accumulation and aid in the healing process; they are typically removed within a few days post-surgery.

The initial recovery after chin lipo can take a few days to a week, after which you may return to work. Antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection, not necessarily to accelerate healing, and it’s crucial to complete the course as directed. You will have discomfort in the treated region, which will reduce to a minimal level by the end of initial recovery.

Full or significant recovery is usually achieved in 4-6 weeks. By the end of this duration, you will have little to no swelling and bruising left in the region.


Due to bruising and swelling, you will not notice a significant difference in appearance right after surgery. Initial results are encouraging, but the final outcome will be more apparent once all swelling has subsided, typically several weeks post-procedure.

The appearance of the neck and chin continues to improve over the next few weeks. The final results of the treatment are usually visible after 5-6 weeks when most of the swelling and bruising subsides.

Double chin liposuction results are permanent in the sense that fat cells responsible for submental fullness are no longer there to regrow. However, maintaining a stable weight is crucial to preserve the results, as weight gain can lead to fat accumulation in surrounding areas.

Risks and Complications

While safe for the most part, double chin liposuction does have some potential risks, such as the following:

  • Fluid accumulation or blood clotting
  • Complications related to anesthesia, while rare, can include allergic reactions, respiratory issues, and sensitivity, depending on the individual’s health and history.
  • Temporary hair loss or thinning around the incision site can occur, particularly if the incision is made in an area with hair, but normal growth usually resumes post-recovery.
  • Infection
  • There is a risk of asymmetry post-procedure, which can be minimized with a skilled surgeon.
  • While some pain and swelling are normal, prolonged symptoms should be reported to your surgeon as they may indicate a need for further evaluation.

That said, the chances of these side effects can be significantly reduced if you get the treatment from a skilled surgeon. At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, our surgeons and doctors follow the highest safety standards to keep the procedure and subsequent recovery complication-free.

How Much is Double Chin Liposuction in Dubai?

The average starting cost of double chin liposuction in Dubai starts from AED 10,000. The exact treatment price may vary from case to case based on the following factors:

  • The amount of fat beneath the chin
  • Anesthesia cost
  • The cost of lab tests and medications
  • The surgeon’s skill and expertise are critical factors in the cost, reflecting their experience, the complexity of the procedure, and the expected quality of results.
  • The clinic’s location and reputation


Is double chin liposuction safe?

Yes, the procedure is 100% safe as it is approved by the FDA.

Are the results permanent?

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the results are permanent. But not in all cases. If you gain weight, the fat cells will again accumulate in your chin, developing a double chin again. So, you need to follow the diet plan instructed by your doctor.

Are there any scars?

You will not get any scar as a result of double chin liposuction. In case, there is any scarring, it will be temporary.

Is the procedure painful?

After getting the procedure, there is a possibility of experiencing mild pain or discomfort. In such situations, you need to take the prescribed medicines.
