The most frequent reason for a so called double chin or fatty chin is fat accumulation in the submental area, sometimes additionally in the submuscular (subplatysmal) area. Younger patients do not need a skin correction, but need a meticulously performed liposuction, and sometimes an open fat resection of a suplatysmal fat pad through a very limited submental approach.
The older patient will eventually require additional procedures to correct the skin excess or the platysmal bands. Skin surgery of the neck is performed via a limited classic face-lift incision around the earlobe and behind the ear.
