Is a Mini Chin Tuck Right for You?

For many people, a chin tuck is what is needed to restore youthful facial definition. This procedure can remove an unsightly “turkey wattle,” excess skin and fat beneath the chin, and significantly enhance your appearance. For many people, this is the ideal approach.

What Are the Benefits of a Chin Tuck?

A chin tuck can dramatically improve your facial appearance and has many benefits, including:

  • Shorter recovery time
  • Less invasive
  • Performed with Local Anesthesia
  • Minimal bruising, swelling, or scarring
  • Shorter, faster procedure

What is the Procedure?

When under the care of Dr. Sofonio, your chin tuck will be performed in our state-of-the-art, fully accredited private clinic, where we are equipped with the most advanced patient health and safety technology. The procedure is performed with local anesthesia rather than general anesthesia, allowing for a faster, more comfortable recovery.

The incisions are placed beneath the chin, to access and remove excess skin and fat while meticulously tightening and smoothing the area. Each procedure is customized to match the needs of the individual and can vary slightly. Some patients may need some minor correction of the neck muscles. Once complete, you can drive yourself or have a family member take you home.

A Surgeon with Exceptional Talent

Dr. Sofonio is not only a very talented, board-certified plastic surgeon – he is a true master of the art. His meticulous surgical technique creates results that appear refreshed, natural, and youthful rather than “worked on.” You can look far younger with excess under-chin fat and skin removed and tightened, along with a swift recovery. His caring demeanor and his genuine dedication to his patients have led to a reputation for excellence. As a perfectionist, Dr. Sofonio takes all the time needed to produce changes that enhance your confidence and quality of life.

How Long is the Recovery After a Chin Tuck?

You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising after your procedure, along with a tight sensation.

Stitches are usually removed within a week or two. In most cases, the beauty of your procedure becomes fully visible in several weeks. If you are one of the countless people who look older due to sagging neck tissue and double chin fat, you deserve to find out about this less invasive facial surgery. The first step is to meet with Dr. Sofonio in a private consultation and find out what procedure will produce the most beautiful results. We offer a wide array of surgical and non-surgical facial treatments and may advise a combination of treatments to produce the most beautiful result.
