Sometimes, extra chin fat is caused by genetics and age, not weight. So, this beauty issue can be hard to solve without medical-grade intervention. You could exercise and be diligent to eat healthy, yet still not see your double chin go away. It is far from true that this problem only occurs in overweight people.

That’s where our non-surgical procedures to remove a double chin comes in.

You may notice that some cases require tackling a cosmetic concern from more than one ‘angle;’ we can do that at our clinic, thanks to the many tools in our arsenal, and over two decades of experience in medical aesthetics. We don’t just sell you what we have: we give you what you need.

We offer, not one, not two, but THREE options for getting rid of a double chin. And, that’s not to mention the four additional, add-on perks we can provide, which help to enhance your facial slimming results. These are discussed in more detail below.

Highly trained staff and doctor

We’ve been serving happy patients with Belkyra™ (a.k.a. Kybella®) since 2016, shortly after it was approved by Health Canada.

Our team has achieved both the CoolSculpting® Master and Scholar certificates from CoolSculpting® University in California.

We were among the first in Canada to acquire the truSculpt® iD – an advancement to laser lipolysis, since it hurts less, tightens skin and can treat larger areas in one cycle.

Unbiased results tracking with the VECTRA® 3D facial scan

To track your progress, we use advanced tools, such as the VECTRA® 3D facial scan, which gives us a 3D image of your full facial anatomy. This allows us to see your results, in detail, using high-resolution imagery from multiple angles.

After chin reduction treatments, effects can take 6 to 12 weeks to materialize. At that point, we’ll make contact to ask you to come in for a follow up appointment. We’ll take more 3D photos for a fair, unbiased comparison of your before and afters. This way, we’ll know whether or not you need more treatments, or if another treatment type will be best for ‘finishing touches.’

And, of course, we’ll be calling to make sure you’re doing well in the days following your appointment!

What are other options for Vancouver double chin removal?

We discuss the answer to this question in detail in the following blog post:

Essentially, when your double chin is caused by genetics or age, the only other option to get rid of it would be surgery. Attempting to lose weight won’t help.

Choosing a non-surgical or minimally-invasive procedure to reduce double chin fat is highly advisable. It can be much safer, and result in fewer complications than ‘going under the knife.’

There are some blogs on the web that discuss chin exercises you could try. However, these are not scientifically proven to work.

What are the side effects of a non-surgical, double chin reduction?

The main side effects of non-surgical double chin reduction can depend on the specific technique used to get rid of it. However, in most cases, the common side effects will be along the lines of bruising, redness, swelling and tenderness at the site of the treatment area. This can last for a few days to a week or so.

More severe side effects are possible, but extremely rare, like they are with any medication or medical procedure.

You will be asked not to take blood thinners for about a week before and after treatments (but please speak with your doctor before stopping any prescribed medications). You also should not do heavy exercise immediately after your treatment sessions.

During your consultation, you’ll be given a list of all the possible side effects of the double chin treatment you choose to go with.

How can I know what is causing my double chin?

Sometimes, the cause of a double chin can be a tough mystery to solve, even for medical professionals. Below are the common culprits:

Weight gain

For overweight individuals, excess fat in the submental region (i.e. under the chin) is expected. In these cases, diet and exercise are usually recommended as the first step to reducing a double chin.

Genetics

For young individuals with a healthy weight, double chins can seem to appear for no reason. People can develop a lining of fat or extra skin under their chin due to genetics.

Aging

For mature individuals, a double chin can be a natural part of aging. As the face loses its collagen, muscle and fat pads, skin has less to ‘hang on’ to. As a result, it sags. This can happen on the face, as it can under the chin. So, sometimes, a double chin is actually the start of a ‘turkey neck.’

Anatomy

Lastly, your issue could be merely the appearance of a double chin. It might actually be a small chin. When the chin bone is small, there is hardly anything to give it definition. As a result, it looks like part of the neck. In these cases, dermal filler is useful to help extend the chin, so that it looks more distinct from the neck.

The best way to find a solution for your double chin, is to get the advice of a trained aesthetic doctor or technician.

Can you do buccal fat removal on the cheeks too?

Technically, there is no non-surgical fat removal method that is indicated for buccal fat removal on the cheeks. However, some of our ‘add-on’ solutions, noted above, can greatly help achieve the look of a slimmer face. You may find you won’t even want surgery after experiencing the effects of these additional treatments.

We encourage you to visit us for a consultation, so we can take a closer look. We’ll be honest about what we think will, or won’t work on you.

  • $600 – $800 per cycle for CoolSculpting® or truSculpt ID® chin fat removal
  • $900 – $1,800 per session for Belkyra™ injections

The starting price points of our add-on services to complement double chin treatments are listed on their respective pages, linked-to above.
