Chin Liposuction Overview

  • Chin liposuction (also called submental liposuction) is designed to reduce excess fat under the chin, neck, and jowls. These fat collections are often not metabolized easily with diet and exercise, and thus rarely improve with weight loss.
  • Most patients have liposuction of the neck (with or without the laser) under local anesthesia. They walk in, have the procedure, and drive themselves home. They can return to work immediately although they are required to wear a chin strap garment.
  • The most important determinants for a successful liposuction result are the quality of the skin and patient compliance. During a consultation, a plastic surgeon will evaluate whether you have enough elasticity for the skin to contract after the removal of the underlying fat.
