For some time, the best way to make unwanted fat under the chin disappear was a turtleneck! Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz is excited to offer treatment for double chin removal (also known as the “turkey neck”) that is minimally- or completely non-invasive. This means an improved contour on your neck with little to no downtime!
If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and seen what appears to be more than one chin, you may struggle with submental fullness. Submental fat forms directly under the chin and around the neck, and can be difficult to get rid of, even with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Thankfully, you have options.
Dr. Schwartz and the team at Premier Vein & Body offer the following treatment options for double chin reduction:
Liposuction: Dr. Schwartz performs minimally-invasive liposuction around the double chin area, removing the unwanted fat and ensuring it will not return. Unlike traditional liposuction, minimally-invasive liposuction requires less downtime while still showing outstanding results with just a single treatment.
Renuvion: Liposuction is the most effective way to reduce a double chin, removing excess fat cells. If you are relatively young (the 20s through the early 50s) and have healthy, elastic skin, liposuction alone may be enough to remove your double chin. However, if you have a larger volume of fat to remove or your skin has lost some of its elasticity, adding the Renuvion procedure will tighten the loose skin that is left after liposuction. Some visible results are immediately noticeable after the swelling subsides, and optimal results are noticeable 3 months post-treatment, with continued improvement for 6-9 months after treatment. Dr. Schwartz is able to use the same tiny incisions that he uses for the liposuction procedure.
CoolMini: CoolMini uses the well-known fat-removing power of CoolSculpting® for non-invasive fat reduction around the chin. Using controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells, the treatment targets the fat cells underneath the skin, without damaging the surrounding skin. Depending on the amount of fat to remove, many patients often require two treatments. Results will be visible 8-12 weeks post-treatment, with many patients requiring two treatments spaced 3 months apart depending on the volume of fat to be removed.
WarmSculpting™ by SculpSure®: WarmSculpting™ harnesses the SculpSure® device’s powerful laser heating mechanism to warm up submental fat cells to damage their structural integrity. Once the fat cells can no longer function, they are naturally expelled from the body and will not return. Results will be visible 8-12 weeks post-treatment, with many patients requiring two treatments spaced 3 months apart depending on the volume of fat to be removed.

If you are one of the seven million Americans seeking help for their double chin, we have the double chin reduction treatment for you! Patients who struggle with small areas of fat, including submental fat contributing to a double chin, may benefit from treatment. The team will work with you to determine which treatment option is right for you.
Visible results can be seen as soon as the swelling subsides with the liposuction option, while 8-12 weeks are needed for the non-invasive options (CoolMini and WarmSculpting), with many patients requiring two treatments. All procedures offer long-lasting results, provided you follow a healthy diet & exercise, as each treatment cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells.
Liposuction and Renuvion are minimally-invasive procedures performed under local anesthesia and require a day or two of downtime, along with a period of swelling. The downtime is, however, notably less than that of traditional liposuction or a facelift!
Just like regular body contouring, there is no downtime associated with CoolMini or WarmSculpting™. Following the treatment, patients may have some slight swelling and bruising which typically goes away with the week following treatment.*
