Double Chin Removal Surgery in New York
There are many effective ways to get rid of a double chin. Injectable treatments, minimally-invasive liposuction, and augmentation surgery are all safe methods for eliminating chin fat and creating a more sculpted jawline. The best treatment for each patient depends on their specific situation and desired results.
Procedures can also be combined to cater to each patient’s needs as well. Philip J. Miller, MD, FACS, is a double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon who creates customized treatment plans to meet the precise needs and goals of each of his patients.
Double Chin Treatment Options in NYC
Dr. Miller offers these options for treating a double chin:
NeckTite™ is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes patented radiofrequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to rejuvenate the neck and jowls. NeckTite removes excess fat while tightening skin, often producing superior results to liposuction alone.
Liposuction is another chin contouring procedure Dr. Miller offers patients. This procedure may provide more dramatic neck fat removal than NeckTite, making it a good choice for patients with more submental fat. This procedure uses a microcannula to loosen and suction away fat from the treatment area, resulting in a more defined jawline.
Kybella® is an injectable treatment and alternative to surgery for fat reduction. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which targets and destroys fat cells so the body can eliminate them through natural processes. During the procedure, you will receive multiple injections in a grid-like pattern across the treatment area. Results develop over time and patients typically need more than one treatment session to achieve full results.
A neck lift addresses chin fat and loose skin in a single procedure. It is recommended for moderate to severe aging symptoms that can't be sufficiently addressed using a non-surgical procedure like NeckTite. Although this treatment requires anesthesia and some downtime afterward, the improvements are very dramatic and long-lasting.
Chin augmentation increases the projection of the chin to bring the entire facial profile into balance. Dr. Miller offers both injectable dermal fillers and surgical implants to achieve this goal. Dermal fillers do not require anesthesia or downtime and results typically last up to 12 months. Surgical implants are placed using anesthesia and recovery is typically 1-2 weeks. However, this procedure yields permanent improvement unless the implant is removed.
Dr. Miller can perform any of these treatments as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with others to achieve the most comprehensive results for each of his patients.

Double Chin FAQ
How much does it cost to lose your double chin in New York?
Depending on the procedure or combination thereof, it can cost patients anywhere from $1,200 to $5,000 per method. Dr. Miller will discuss the options that are best for you during your personal consultation. Once you develop a treatment plan, a more accurate estimate can be provided.
What surgery is best for double chin?
The best surgical procedure to address this issue is chin augmentation surgery. Liposuction is also an effective surgical method, but it doesn’t directly address a patient’s profile. Chin augmentation enhances the profile to reduce the appearance of a double chin, so it can help stop the issue from recurring. Patients who undergo liposuction alone risk the issue resurfacing if they don’t maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Can double chin be removed permanently?
Yes, it can be permanently removed through surgical alteration. Not every method can offer permanent results, but surgical procedures do if a patient maintains a healthy lifestyle after treatment.
Does double chin come back after surgery?
Without a healthy lifestyle, patients risk dealing with this issue again. Augmentation can help to prevent a recurrence by permanently altering the profile and proportionality of a patient’s facial features. Patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle after surgery to avoid this issue resurfacing, especially after liposuction.
How painful is chin liposuction?
Patients are put under local anesthesia to avoid pain during the procedure. The first 2 to 4 days after surgery is when patients will experience the most pain, but this is mitigated by choosing a highly-qualified surgeon. Soreness and tenderness may persist for up to 4 weeks after the procedure.
How much fat is removed during chin lipo?
Less than 10% of the fat is removed during liposuction. This avoids any significant risk to the patient while still achieving effective aesthetic results. Removing an excessive amount of fat could lead to unnecessary trauma for the patient. This is another reason why choosing a highly qualified, double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Miller is so important.
