Woman is getting a fat neck reduction with Dr Yusra's CoolSculpting treatment.

Everything in this world changes, including our physical appearance. As time goes by, you may find yourself wondering, “Why do I have a double chin?” or “How can I reduce neck fat?”. If so, you’re not alone, and we have some answers.

Struggling with excess fat under the chin and around the neck area is a common issue, which can easily lead to self-consciousness and a desire for a more defined profile.

In the hunt for a slimmer neck and jawline, options like neck lift surgery and CoolSculpting have gained popularity. These are two very different cosmetic treatments, both with their own set of benefits and drawbacks to consider.

Read this blog to gain more detailed explanations of your fat reduction options so that you can make a more informed decision about your appearance.


What Causes a Double Chin?

Before exploring solutions, let’s understand why a double chin develops. Several factors contribute to the accumulation of fat in this area. Including:

  • Weight gain due to excess fat around the neck and chin accumulating
  • Platysma muscle starts to sag
  • Weak chin muscles
  • Small chin shape
  • Genetics
  • Age increases cause the skin to lose elasticity and lead to sagging neck skin (aka, ‘turkey neck’)

This can give the appearance of a double chin, even in individuals with a healthy diet and weight. Similarly, if you lose weight, you may find that the fat may disappear but the excess skin remains. But, is it possible to reduce neck fat?


Can I Reduce My Neck Fat?

As technology and science evolve, there are more possibilities than before. So, if you’ve been wondering, “Can I reduce neck fat?” the answer is yes!

Neck fat reduction is achievable through various methods, including both surgical and non-surgical options, to help you remove neck fat conveniently and enhance your facial profile.

If you have never had any cosmetic procedures performed before, you may seem confused at first. But don’t worry, we have simplified your options to make them easier to understand – keep on reading!


Neck Lift Surgery vs. CoolSculpting

Whether you prefer a surgical procedure or a more natural approach, there are options available to reduce your double chin. Both of these options are effective yet very different in their approach.

To best understand what the best treatment is for you, speak to a qualified surgeon or anaesthetic professional, or book a consultation.


Fat Neck Reduction With Neck Lift Surgery

For those seeking immediate and dramatic results, surgical neck lift procedures are available. This procedure involves making small incisions to tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess skin to create a more sculpted neck and jawline. This process is often referred to as ‘neck liposuction’.

The benefits of double chin surgery include a dramatic improvement in neck contour and the elimination of excess fat. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks to consider, such as infection, scarring, and general anaesthesia complications.


Fat Neck Reduction With CoolSculpting

If you prefer a non-invasive treatment with minimal downtime, CoolSculpting is an excellent choice. This innovative and FDA-approved method freezes away stubborn submental fat cells under the chin to achieve a slimmer neck appearance.

The frozen fat cells are then naturally eliminated by the body over time, which results in a more contoured and defined neck to provide natural-looking results.

CoolSculpting has gained popularity due to its effectiveness in reducing fat without surgery, minimal discomfort during the procedure, and no downtime afterwards.

Due to its powerful ability to get rid of excess skin, sagging skin and neck fat, without having to actively lose weight or undergo surgery, CoolSculpting is becoming a hugely popular method.


The Benefits and Drawbacks of CoolSculpting for Double Chin and Neck Fat

Like all treatments, procedures and services, we like to weigh the benefits and drawbacks, so why should it be any different for CoolSculpting? Let’s start with the benefits of CoolSculpting:


The Benefits of CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting can be an exciting aesthetic treatment for many reasons. Fat reduction is one, but that’s not all. Additional benefits of CoolSculpting include:

  • CoolSculpting is non-surgical, requiring no incisions or anaesthesia
  • Minimal discomfort is experienced during and after the procedure
  • It offers a noticeable reduction in neck fat
  • Results are gradual and natural as the body naturally eliminates fat cells
  • Treatment can be customised for specific areas, like the neck and chin
  • There is no recovery time which gives you the freedom to immediately return to normal activities


The Drawbacks of CoolSculpting

Although the risks of CoolSculpting are not as severe as those of surgical treatments, there are still drawbacks to consider when choosing to remove excess fat from your neck. Some of the common risks to take into account include:

  • Temporary side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area
  • Rare complications may include skin sensation changes or fat growth in treated areas
  • Unsuitable for some medical conditions or unrealistic expectations
  • Treatment costs can vary and may not be covered by insurance
  • Multiple sessions might be needed for desired results, which can increase the overall cost and time commitment

Managing your expectations for CoolScultping treatment is essential. As it’s a natural procedure, you must be aware that the results can take time to show. In some cases, a few treatments are required to achieve your desired outcome.

For a complete understanding of how your treatment plan may look so you can make more informed choices, speak with a professional or book a CoolScultping consultation.

I visited the Liverpool clinic for NSR treatment with Dr Lauren she was lovely welcoming and very talented. She went through everything with me in great detail and ensured I was comfortable and getting the right treatment, we discussed my concerns before the treatment so I felt very safe and knew I was in the best hands. I’m happy with the outcome and not to forget the follow up care and call which I didn’t expect. My advice is if you are thinking of getting any treatment then stick with the best professionals in the business and Dr Lauren is an asset to Dr Yusra’s team.

Had very bad hallow eyes and dr yusra and her team were amazing with the process. Being a man it can feel uncomfortable to consider these procedures but they do everything to make it as smooth and comfortable as possible. Listen to the advice! Dr yusra analysed my face and realised it was cheeks that needed some help and not the under eyes, its given me such a fresh younger look and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Title: Exceptional Aesthetic Experience I recently had an aesthetic treatment at Dr Yusra Clinic, and I cannot express enough how pleased I am with the entire experience. From the moment I walked in, the staff displayed a level of professionalism and kindness that instantly put me at ease. Dr. Yusra, in particular, went above and beyond in ensuring my comfort. She took the time to calm my nerves and spent an extended period discussing my reasons for seeking the treatment. What truly set her apart was her thorough explanation of the treatment process. She didn't just outline the procedure; she made sure I understood every aspect, leaving no room for uncertainties. Dr. Yusra's genuine care for her patients was evident throughout the consultation. I felt valued and reassured, not just as a client, but as someone she genuinely cared about. She took the time to discuss various products, explaining why each was the best fit for me. Additionally, she offered valuable advice on other concerns I had, demonstrating a holistic approach to my well-being. One of the most comforting aspects of the consultation was the lack of pressure to proceed with the treatment. Dr. Yusra allowed me the time to carefully assess the costs involved and make a decision that I felt comfortable with. Her advice was not only honest but also presented in a factual and easily understandable manner. In conclusion, my experience at Dr Yusra Clinic exceeded my expectations. Dr. Yusra and the entire staff made me feel more important than just a client, providing a level of personalised care that is truly commendable. I highly recommend their services for anyone seeking not only effective aesthetic treatments but also a compassionate and considerate approach to patient care.

Wow well what can I say? What a lovely lady Dr Yusra is and so talented! She went through everything with me in SUCH detail and analysis in a way I have not experienced before, so before the treatment I felt very safe and sure she would do a great job. She did! I’m so happy with the teaks to my nose which has been wonky for years after several breaks. She also covered my whole face and discussed many areas where there was volume loss, or over active muscles etc. She was wonderful and I will definitely be booking in with her again! Thankyou SO much Dr Yusra!
