The appearance of a double chin is an issue that affects many people regardless of physique or age. Going on a diet with fat loss intentions may not help because, in most situations, the double chin can be stubborn and resistant to diet. A combination of sagging skin and excess fat affects a person's appearance and, even more so, their self-confidence. Nonetheless, help and hope are at hand.
A procedure such as liposuction can help to get rid of the double chin for good.
The neck is one of the first places to show when it comes to skin ageing, and for some people, excess fat tends to accumulate in areas such as under the chin. The goal of the double chin liposuction procedure is, as the name suggests, to remove the excess fat present.
MDC-Sculpt® Lipo technique is a modern liposuction technique developed by Dr Ivan Puah, who is also the Medical Director at Amaris B. Clinic. This proprietary technique enables Dr Puah to meet the specific needs of patients when it comes to excess fat removal and facial sculpting.
Facial liposuction is a delicate procedure that requires experienced and steady hands. The patient's well-being is always Dr Puah's primary concern, and meticulous attention must be given to achieve desired results. Facial liposuction by Dr Ivan Puah is performed in an accredited Day Surgery Center. The patient will be under twilight sedation (GA is not required), and the procedure will be done under local anaesthesia. With his proprietary technique, incisions are created strategically for maximum access to the different fat layers, and scarring is minimal and well-hidden. Patients can expect a faster recovery and lesser discomfort post-surgery.
An ideal candidate for double chin liposuction should be in good overall health. Good skin elasticity also helps, but the doctor will be in a better position to advise.
When it comes to the signs of ageing, the double chin usually appears before others. It can reflect and, perhaps more concerning, inflate a person's actual age.
Getting rid of the issue helps not only with appearance but self-confidence as well. Another cause of a double chin is genetics, so those affected can also get it addressed.
The double chin creates a tired and aged look, and facial liposuction not only addresses the issue of excess fat and, in some individuals, targets "turkey neck", but it also can, under the hands of abled liposuction doctor, create a sculpted, and slimmer face.
The liposuction technique has progressed in tandem with advancements in science. An example is the MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique, developed by Dr Ivan Puah. Dr Puah's extensive experience in liposuction and body contouring procedures has equipped him with a better understanding of a patient's unique fat, skin, skeletal and muscle anatomy. The MDC-Sculpt®️ Lipo technique enables Dr Puah to remove facial and body fat from a multi-dimensional approach but also encourages skin tightening and achieves subtle lifting, which is not doable with traditional liposuction.
Liposuction is a strictly regulated surgical procedure in Singapore. It can only be performed by an MOH-accredited doctor. When you choose a liposuction doctor, it is crucial to select one that is licensed, experienced and skilled.
Dr Ivan Puah has over 17 years of liposuction and body contouring experience. He is certified to perform Laserlipolysis (Laser Liposuction), Ultrasonic assisted liposuction such as Vaser Liposuction, having completed his fundamental and advanced body sculpting training in Italy, the U.S. and Argentina.

Getting enough sleep is an essential part of recovery. While this can be challenging considering the circumstances, it can be done. The patient will need to wear a compression garment and sleep in an upright position during the initial period of recovery. This may be uncomfortable if they have a habit of sleeping on the side or stomach.
Common side effects of double chin liposuction include:
A patient's role is equally vital to that of the doctor. As such, the onus is upon the patient to heed the advice dispensed by the doctor for every step of the process to reduce possible complications and optimise the results.
