Banish Your Double Chin without Surgery

Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing the area under your chin slowly expanding and bulging? If you’re looking for a way to avoid cosmetic surgery, but still want to get a toned and tightened under-chin, there’s a minimally invasive procedure that can help.

At the practice of Gae Rodke, MD, FACOG, located on the Upper West Side of New York City, we can help you finally banish under-the-chin fat and reduce bulges under your chin using WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure®.

Under-chin fat

Both men and women can accumulate fat below the jawline. This “submental fat” causes bulging, forming a double-chin. Causes include:

Using WarmSculpting with SculpSure for fat reduction

Non-surgical fat reduction treatments are safe and effective. They’re used in slimming and toning procedures for more than 170,000 men and women every year. Dr. Rodke can reduce the appearance of your double-chin using WarmSculpting with SculpSure. This process was initially developed to reduce fat on the flanks, hips, and abdomen, but the FDA has also cleared it for use to reduce the appearance of double-chins. 

How it works

The headpiece uses a warming technology to gently penetrate the skin and lightly injure your fat cells. Your body will then react by seeing them as waste and direct your lymphatic system to slowly and thoroughly flush them out of your body over the next few months. Just one WarmSculpting treatment can eliminate up to 24% of stored fat under your chin.

What to expect

Dr. Rodke will make sure you’re comfortable, and our staff will give you protective eyewear. We’ll carefully strap the headpiece in place and position it to direct the warming at the correct area under your chin. Then you can just lie back and relax. The WarmSculpting technology will gently and painlessly go to work, disrupting your excess fat cells, and encouraging skin tightening. The laser energy treatment only takes about 25 minutes, and you’ll probably feel nothing more than a faint tingling.   

When you’ll see results

Typically, you’ll be able to see early results at around the six-week point after your first treatment. At the 12-week point, you’ll be able to see the full results. The best thing about WarmSculpting is that there’s no downtime like there is with cosmetic surgery. You can go right back to your normal routine after treatment.
