What Is Double Chin Liposuction?

Double chin liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that effectively removes excess fat beneath the chin and improves the appearance of a double chin. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr Rotsaert understands the impact a double chin can have on your self-confidence. With meticulous attention to detail, she performs this procedure to contour and refine the jawline, providing you with a more defined and youthful profile.

Things You Should Know Before Your Double Chin Liposuction Procedure In London

  1. Pre-procedure Preparation: Before undergoing double chin liposuction with Dr Veerle Rotsaert, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the procedure and prepare accordingly. Dr Rotsaert will provide detailed instructions during the consultation, which may include refraining from smoking, adjusting certain medications, and avoiding blood-thinning substances. Following these guidelines will help ensure the best possible outcome and minimise potential risks.

  2. Risks and Potential Complications: As with any surgical procedure, double chin liposuction carries inherent risks. It is essential to be aware of these risks and potential complications, such as infection, bleeding, and changes in sensation. Dr Rotsaert will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your health and address any concerns you may have during the consultation, ensuring that you are fully informed and prepared.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: To optimise the results of Double Chin Liposuction, Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide specific pre-procedure instructions tailored to your individual needs. These instructions may include fasting prior to surgery, avoiding certain medications or supplements, and arranging for a responsible adult to accompany you on the day of the procedure. Adhering to these instructions is crucial to ensure a smooth surgical experience.

  4. Preparing for Recovery: Proper preparation for the recovery period after Double Chin Liposuction is key to a successful outcome. Dr Rotsaert will guide you through the necessary steps, which may involve arranging for time off work, creating a comfortable recovery space at home, and gathering any recommended post-operative supplies. By following these guidelines, you can facilitate a smoother and more comfortable recovery process.

  5. Questions to Ask: It is important to come prepared with any questions you may have before undergoing Double Chin Liposuction. Dr Veerle Rotsaert encourages open communication and will take the time to address your concerns during the consultation. Consider asking about the expected results, recovery timeline, and any specific post-operative care instructions. Dr Rotsaert’s expertise and personalised approach will ensure you feel confident and well-informed before proceeding with the procedure.

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

During the double chin liposuction procedure, a local anaesthetic is typically used to numb the treatment area. This ensures your comfort throughout the procedure. Dr Rotsaert will discuss the anaesthesia options with you during the consultation and determine the best approach based on your individual needs and preferences.

How Long Does Double Chin Liposuction Take?

The duration of the double chin liposuction procedure depends on various factors, including the extent of fat removal and your unique anatomy. On average, the procedure can be completed within one to two hours. Dr Rotsaert prioritises patient safety and dedicate ample time to achieve exceptional results while upholding the highest standards of care.

Double Chin Liposuction Results & Aftercare

Following double chin liposuction, you can expect a noticeable improvement in the contour of your jawline. While some swelling and bruising may be present initially, these effects will gradually subside over the following weeks. Dr Rotsaert will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery process. Regular follow-up appointments will also be scheduled to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

Recovery time can vary from patient to patient, but most individuals can resume their normal activities within one to two weeks after double chin liposuction. It is important to listen to your body and avoid strenuous activities during the initial healing period. Dr Rotsaert will guide you through the recovery process, providing personalised recommendations to optimise your healing and ensure long-lasting results.

Will I Have Scars After Double Chin Liposuction

The incisions made during double chin liposuction are typically small and strategically placed to minimise visible scarring. I employ advanced surgical techniques to ensure discreet incisions and meticulously close the wounds. Over time, any residual scars will fade and become less noticeable, allowing you to enjoy the improved contours of your chin and jawline with confidence.

Dr. V's View On Double Chin Liposuction

“I firmly believe that double chin liposuction can have a profound impact on both the physical appearance and self-confidence of my patients. The accumulation of excess fat under the chin can create an undesired aesthetic, and through this minimally invasive procedure, I aim to address and refine the jawline, providing a more sculpted and youthful profile.”

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
