“The results are good and durable, nothing is ever certain, however, because aging continues, you could just turn back the clock a few years and make them start from there”
Interview with Dr. Patrizia Gilardino Specialist in Plastic Reconstructive Surgery
What the so-called ‘double chin’ is a problem that affects many women, especially not young, and often is a problem that could be resolved, but no one knows how. Cosmetic surgery can be helpful, in case of a double chin that was a problem so heartfelt that it must be solved at any cost. To learn more, we interviewed Dr. Patrizia Gilardino Specialist in Plastic Reconstructive Surgery, and we put some questions on surgical techniques to remove a double chin, and opportunity costs. Here’s what he told Dr.
What is basically a double chin, or the ‘crop’ as they call many women?
It is an accumulation of fat below the chin, often concomitant with an excess of skin and the muscle relaxation of the neck.
Many women have recourse to exercise real ‘exercises’ to try to reduce its size. Serve a purpose? And if so, what?
May serve to give tone to the platysma muscle, and therefore to reduce one of the components that determine the formation of double chin.
What does the surgery, nowadays, to eliminate a double chin?
If the predominant component is given dall’adipe, the solution is a liposuction or laser lipolysis a better (less invasive and capable of promoting even in part the retraction of the treated skin, reducing a modest excess). If the main problem is an apparent excess of skin, the only possible solution is a lifting of the neck. Finally, in the event of a relaxation of the platysma muscle (which is evidenced by the presence of two or more unsightly vertical bands under the chin) can be simply intervene with some punt urine of botulinum toxin or, in a more definitive surgery, suturing together the bands or interrupting.
What results is reasonable to expect. And there may be relapses or intervention solves the problem for good?
The results are good and durable, nothing is ever certain, however, because aging continues, you could just turn back the clock a few years and starting them from there. And convalescent care after surgery. You only need to wear a belt for a few days compressive
How much, approximately, the intervention for the reduction of double chin?
It depends on the technique used, ranging from 700-1000 euros for a laser lipolysis to 5-6000 of a neck lifting
