Santa Barbara, CA – Observing considerable unawareness of double chin surgery in patients visiting the Santa Barbara-based plastic surgeon with similar requirements, Dr. Robert W. Sheffield converses about the double chin surgery to enlighten people, allowing them to make informed decisions, being inclined toward it.
According to him, extra fat, also known as submental fullness, is the leading cause of a double chin. However, one can have a double chin problem for many factors, including weight, airway positioning, hereditary factors, etc. The renowned surgeon from the SB Aesthetics Medical Spa in Santa Barbara has discussed the surgical and the new-age non-surgical alternative of eliminating double chin here in unison.
While conversing about the various methods surgeons adopt to diminish double chin problems in patients, he stated, “double chin surgery isn’t any single procedure. For the patients visiting my clinic with double chin problems, often, I need to use procedures like liposuction, facelift, and neck lift. Thus, we exquisitely remove extra fat and sagginess of skin and muscles around the face, endowing clients with more prominent contour around the chin area.” He further adds, “Those who want to get rid of the stubborn fat normally caused by the aging process but have not been successful doing so through diet and exercise will be recommended this liposuction Santa Barbara treatment. Patients can save money and recover more quickly if they opt for a tumescent or local anesthetic procedure rather than complete general anesthetic surgery, which is the most cost-effective option. In some cases, patients can return to work after only a few days of rest, so there’s no need to worry about a protracted recovery period if they’ve had a minor procedure.”
He adds that problems like swelling and bruising can remain for around 10 to 14 days after the surgery. Furthermore, patients about to undergo the surgical procedure are also asked to stop smoking and taking anti-blood-clotting drugs for a few days before the surgery.
How Dr. Sheffield Deoxycholic Acid: A Non-invasive Alternative to Double chin surgery
Dr. Sheffield also discusses the non-surgical route using Deoxycholic Acid, otherwise known as Kybella Santa Barbara, noting that it’s a marvel of modern advancement in anti-aging science and is a substance the gallbladder utilizes for dissolving dietary fat. In addition, he mentions that it’s an injectable used to melt fat from the double chin area, facilitating the body to reabsorb it afterward.
Its ability to provide long-lasting results is indeed a benefit Dr. Sheffield mentioned. But he also underscored the comparably more twinging attribute of the injectable and post-procedure swelling for around 10 days as drawbacks. Successful Kybella injections depend heavily on the candidacy, which includes the type of fat beneath the neck and the level of skin laxity.
