Get Rid of Unwanted Chin Fat with truSculpt® iD Treatments
A double chin can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness, even if you're not overweight. It's a common concern that often arises due to factors like genetics, aging, and skin laxity. Fortunately, truSculpt iD treatments offer a nonsurgical and effective solution to get rid of unwanted chin fat. Here, Dr. Avi Ishaaya of Optima Medical Spa in Los Angeles, CA, shares helpful information about how truSculpt iD can be used to reduce unsightly and stubborn chin fat.
Why do I have a double chin if I am not overweight?
A double chin, medically known as submental fat, can develop for various reasons, even if you're at a healthy weight. Common factors contributing to a double chin include:
- Genetics: Your genetic makeup plays a significant role in determining how fat is distributed in your body. Some people are genetically predisposed to store excess fat in the chin and neck area.
- Aging: As you age, your skin's elasticity decreases, leading to sagging and a loss of definition in the chin and neck region. At the same time, stubborn fat deposits may accumulate in certain areas, like beneath the chin and on the neck.
- Weight changes: Even minor fluctuations in weight can affect the appearance of a double chin.
How can I get rid of my double chin without surgery?
Traditionally, surgical options like liposuction or a neck lift were the primary methods for removing a double chin. However, many individuals prefer nonsurgical alternatives for reducing chin fat. It is important for patients considering truSculpt iD for a double chin to understand that the treatment is primarily designed to target excess fat cells. For patients who have loose or sagging neck skin (sometimes referred to as a “turkey neck,” Dr. Ishaaya may recommend an alternative treatment or procedure that specifically aims to tighten lax skin.
What can I expect during a truSculpt iD treatment for double chin fat?
truSculpt iD is a noninvasive procedure designed to target and reduce stubborn fat pockets, including those beneath the chin. During the treatment, a specialized handheld device is applied to the treatment area. This device delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to the underlying fat cells, effectively heating and destroying them without causing harm to the surrounding tissues. The destroyed fat cells are gradually removed by your body's natural processes.
The procedure is virtually painless and requires no anesthesia. Most patients report feeling only a mild warming sensation during the treatment, making it a comfortable experience. Each session typically lasts around 15 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities almost immediately afterward.
How many truSculpt iD treatments will I need for my chin?
The number of truSculpt iD treatments needed to achieve your desired results can vary based on factors such as the amount of fat you want to reduce and your individual response to the treatment. In many cases, patients see noticeable improvements after just one session. However, multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal results.
Will fat come back after truSculpt iD?
One of the most compelling advantages of truSculpt iD is that the fat cells destroyed during the treatment are gone. Unlike weight loss, which only shrinks fat cells, truSculpt iD gets rid of them. However, patients should understand that gaining weight after truSculpt iD treatments can cause nearby fat cells to become enlarged, which may reverse the cosmetic outcome of the procedure. For the longest-lasting results possible, patients should be committed to maintaining a stable weight after treatment through a balanced diet and regular exercise routine. With this approach, the results of truSculpt iD can keep your neckline looking smooth and slim for years to come.
