Improve Your Facial Contours With Submental Liposuction

Submental liposuction, also known as chin liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure designed to combat stubborn fatty deposits on the chin and neck in order to improve the contours and appearance of your face.

This form of liposuction can be used to:

  • Remove small deposits of excess fat in the chin and neck
  • Provide a mild skin tightening effect
  • Improve the appearance of a double chin
  • Create a sharper jawline and better facial proportion
How is a submental liposuction procedure performed?

A submental liposuction procedure is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure during which any fatty tissue under the chin is suctioned away using small mini-cannulas and a sculpting technique.

How long does this liposuction procedure take?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, this liposuction treatment is a safe and short procedure, typically lasting between 30-60 minutes.

What are the risks associated with a submental liposuction treatment?

As with all cosmetic surgeries, there are certain risks associated with a submental liposuction treatment including bruising/swelling, infection, scarring and nerve damage.

How long does it take to recover from this procedure?

It typically takes patients 1 week to fully recover from a submental liposuction treatment. If you are looking for a cosmetic facial procedure with no downtime, you may want to consider Botox or Juvederm.

When will I see the results of this procedure?

The results of your liposuction will be visible as soon as the swelling dissipates, generally within a few days.


Am I a Candidate For a Submental Liposuction Treatment?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a submental liposuction is a safe and effective procedure for achieving a more pleasing facial appearance. However, it may not be suitable for everyone.

Patients who are candidates for this type of liposuction are those that are/have:

  • Generally in good health
  • Non-smokers
  • At or close to their ideal body weight
  • Under the age of 50
  • Good skin elasticity and skin tone, with no stretch marks in the treatment area

Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, whether it’s a chin liposuction or Botox, it is always best to discuss your options with a qualified plastic surgeon. They can assess your medical history, aesthetic goals and cosmetic needs to determine which procedure is safe and right for you.
