CORRECTION OF THE CHIN
Chin results from a relaxation of muscles in the neck and body fat. His emergence relates to the legacy and the consequence of aging. It is often associated with excessive thickness but is found in people who are not prone to weight gain.
In young people with fat tissue accumulating in the area, and the effect is not achieved with the diet, the best choice is liposuction. In the elderly, most often, apart from the accumulation of fatty tissue, the problem is that relaxed structures occur, and the neck “hangs”, and it is necessary to do additional correction of tensile. The operation is possible in local or general anesthesia, which depends on the extent of the procedure.
General health check and basic laboratory analysis are mandatory for all patients. It would be preferable to stop smoking, and taking drugs and preparations that affect blood coagulation.
During preoperative preparation, photo documentation should be completed, it is completed with photos during and after the surgery, as well as during rewinding.
- Anesthesia: The surgical procedure is usually done in local anesthesia, but at the request of the patient, it can also be done in general endotracheal anesthesia.
- Duration: The operation takes 30 to 90 minutes.
For the first 7 to 14 days, it is obligatory to wear a compression bandage for 24 hours in order to regain the skin and adapt it better, to reduce swelling and accumulation of secretion, and after that, the next month the bandage will be worn only at night. Greater efforts, as well as more demanding exercises, should be avoided for the first 4 to 6 weeks. Our professional staff will explain all the steps in detail.
