Are you struggling with having your photo taken due to a noticeable double chin? Do you have a weak chin and seek a more defined chin and jaw? Are you ready for aesthetic surgery to help you achieve your cosmetic goals? Dr. Derek Steinbacher and his team in Guilford, Connecticut, help with facial surgeries and can educate potential patients on the benefits of augmenting with genioplasty.
With options to tighten, contour, and augment the chin and jaw, patients can address problems such as a double chin or weak chin affecting their profile and forward-facing appearance.
The genioplasty procedure is a chin reduction surgery performed to alter the size, shape, or even the position of the chin. It can be done for cosmetic purposes to improve facial symmetry and balance or for functional reasons such as correcting a receding chin that may affect speech or breathing. During a consultation with Dr. Derek Steinbacher and his team in Guildford, Connecticut, he will determine if double chin fat removal may also be performed to sharpen the chin and jawline for a more defined appearance.
During genioplasty surgery, excess fat from the “double chin” can be removed through liposuction. This involves making small incisions under the chin and using a thin tube called a cannula to suction the fat cells in the area from the body. This effectively creates a more defined jawline and enhances the procedure’s overall results. Excess skin may also be removed depending on the severity of the double chin to keep the area tight and contoured.
Dr. Derek Steinbacher and his team in Guilford, Connecticut, work routinely with patients seeking aesthetic surgery to remove any excess fat and skin in the chin and jaw area to reduce the appearance of a troublesome double chin.
