Doc. Antonio Garcia performs this procedure to remove excess fat in the so-called double chin.
Until recently, people with the problem of having a double chin had no other solution than removing it directly, and exposing it to a large surgical area with consequences, such as the formation of very difficult scars to hide.
Today, with new liposuction techniques, this process can be avoided and gratifying results are achieved with minimally invasive surgery.
By performing a small incision between 4 to 5 millimetres, excessive fat is removed after anesthetizing the area to be operated on.
This procedure takes place entirely under local anaesthesia.
Often, this procedure is performed in association with neck and facelift.
