One of the most unsightly signs of aging is the “wattle.” It’s an area that facial exercises can target safely and more effectively than any other technique, from mesotherapy to liposuction. Also known as a “double chin,” “chin fat” or “submental fat,” this area is difficult to treat. The wattle can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetic, aging, weight loss and gain.
Facercise allows you to reduce this area without all the risks associated with invasive procedures. Read on to learn about some of the side effects caused by going the surgical route instead of following a regimen of facial exercises.
With both mesotherapy and liposuction, there is a chance that the wounds can get infected. This lengthens downtime and recovery while causing serious pain. An infection can lead to serious illnesses and diseases.
The Risk of Anesthesia
When you opt to do liposuction to eliminate chin fat, you will most likely need to be anesthetized. This is a risk that always should be avoided at all costs. Patients may also experience post-operative nausea and dizziness. Side effects of anesthesia can result in serious conditions including seizures, stroke, heart attack and sometimes even death.
Don’t believe those who tout liposuction as a “lunchtime procedure.” It typically requires a few days of downtime and causes significant soreness.
Bruising & Swelling
Many patients endure redness and bruising, as well as swelling after liposuction or mesotherapy. Some who get mesotherapy “fat melting” injections suffer from nausea, headaches, numbness and nerve injuries. The procedure can also escalate hypertension.
Many patients experience a dimpled appearance after liposuction, while some have dents and unevenness. With mesotherapy, patients endure multiple treatments consisting of up to 50 injections in the area! I’ve had clients try it and experience no results yet suffer uncomfortable swelling and bruising after each session.
