Question : I am a 62-year-old male and I have struggled with a double chin for the past decade. Should I have a facelift to correct this problem? Or does liposuction under the chin work better?
Answer : It really depends on what is the nature of your double chin. Some people have a double chin which is really due to the fact that the bone in the neck is in a slightly lower location than normal. This can be related to the sagging of skin with age. Another cause of this may be excess adipose tissue. Depending on exactly what is the cause, this will determine the best way to manage this. If it is just some extra adipose tissue, liposuction will be effective.
