During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss the patient’s treatment options and help them make a well-considered decision. Drs. Sundin provide treatment for double chin to patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities and cities in The Mother of States.

Focus on Submental Fat

While CoolSculpting has been used for years to enhance body contours for thousands of patients, most non-invasive procedures are not effective for difficult to access areas such as the submental fat pockets below the chin. This hurdle is now eliminated with the FDA clearance for CoolMini applicator, which has a size, shape and curvature ideally suited to treat stubborn fat deposits below the chin, which are creating a double chin appearance.

How to Reduce a Double Chin?The CoolMini treatment for double chin reduction is popular among busy moms, working people and others who want to avoid the extended downtime and potential risks that are typically associated with a plastic surgery procedure. CoolMini procedure can be performed comfortably in-office, involving no anesthesia, and with little to no downtime.

Safety and Efficacy

CoolMini treatment is completely safe and non-invasive, and does not even involve any injections, medications, or special diets. The FDA cleared the CoolMini procedure following the results of a pivotal clinical trial that involved 60 men and women between the ages of 22 and 65 years.

Each of these subjects was given one to two treatments with CoolMini device in the submental region, below the chin. Each treatment was delivered six weeks apart. On average, the patients achieved a fat reduction of 20 percent during this trial. The patients reported little to no discomfort or downtime, and no significant adverse events were noted.

Permanent Fat Elimination

One of the key benefits with CoolMini double chin reduction procedure is that the targeted fat cells that are destroyed with its unique cooling process are gone for good. The patient can enjoy a sculpted, slimmer appearance of the chin and neck for a long time to come.

However, patients should note that CoolMini and CoolSculpting procedures are not a substitute for diet and exercise, and it is important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle to prolong the aesthetic benefits of these treatments.

In-Office Procedure

The double chin fat reduction procedure with CoolMini by CoolSculpting is performed in-office. A single treatment session will last for about 45 minutes, while the patient relaxes in a comfortable office environment. Best outcomes are usually obtained after two to three treatments. Wonderful and poignant plastic surgeons at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and nearby areas.
