Stubborn fat under your chin can make you look older and heavier, even if you’re healthy and youthful. Unfortunately, fat cells under your chin and jawline are hard to get rid of through diet and exercise alone. Our patients often choose CoolSculpting to reduce fat deposits under the chin and to achieve a more sculpted profile. This can be a great option for individuals who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure like liposuction.

What Is CoolSculpting Elite?

CoolSculpting Elite is a noninvasive fat-freezing procedure that can reduce fat deposits in certain areas of your body. Once the fat cells are frozen, your body removes them through natural processes. CoolSculpting Elite represents the latest fat-freezing technology, and has applicators suited for virtually any area of the body, including one that works well on smaller areas like the chin and neck.

What Are the Benefits of CoolSculpting Elite for a Double Chin?

Some of the benefits of CoolSculpting Elite for this area include:

  • No downtime
  • No needles, anesthesia, or incisions
  • Gradual results

If these characteristics are important to you, CoolSculpting might be a good option.

CoolSculpting vs. Liposuction: Which Is Better?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can also reduce stubborn fat on your neck and chin. We offer both procedures for our patients and help them choose based on their goals and concerns. If you have more excess fat; want immediate, precise, and predictable results; and don’t mind a little recovery time, liposuction might be a good option for you. Liposuction uses small incisions, requires local anesthetic, and causes some bruising, swelling, and discomfort.

Recovery and Results After CoolSculpting Elite

Since CoolSculpting Elite is a noninvasive and nonsurgical treatment, you can resume your regular routine immediately after the treatment. You may experience some mild discomfort, redness, and swelling in the following days, but it should not keep you from your regular activities or exercise.

You should start seeing results in a few weeks, even though your body will keep eliminating fat cells for several months. Some patients require more than one session to achieve their desired results. Read this previous blog for more information on CoolSculpting recovery.
