Beneath the chin and jawline is a common problem area when it comes to stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. The natural aging process, weight loss, and other factors can cause the skin in the chin and neck to droop while accumulating problematic fat cells. At Biotech Cosmetic Surgery, it is our goal to help our patients to look and feel their best throughout each step of their aesthetic journey. For patients that are searching for a solution to achieve a slimmer and defined jawline, chin liposuction could benefit you.
What is Chin Liposuction?
Submental liposuction, or chin liposuction, is a safe and effective procedure that is designed to eliminate stubborn or unwanted fat from beneath the chin and neck. The treatment involves removing a significant amount of fat using a suction method to diminish the fat from the body for good. The process is performed using a minimally invasive method by creating a very small incision in a discrete area of the chin. The incision is small and well hidden – making it difficult to notice afterwards. Once the incision is made, a small cannula is gently inserted to effectively break-up and suction out the unwanted fat. If needed, the skin may also be tightened for a smooth and re-defined jawline. If you are unsatisfied with excessive skin and fat in the chin area, chin liposuction could be the solution you have been searching for!
What to Expect
During an initial consultation, a personalized plan for treatment is created which is tailored to your specific needs and aesthetic desires. Submental liposuction is performed as an out-patient procedure using anesthesia or local anesthesia in order to ensure optimal patient comfort. During the procedure, an incision is made in the natural crease beneath the chin. The fat is then gently removed using a break-down and suction method. The chin is then re-contoured to eliminate the appearance of a “double-chin.” If necessary, excess skin is also removed, and the remaining skin is tightened.
Following the liposuction procedure, a light wrap is placed over the treated area and should be left on for about 6 day. There is a short recovery time and at-home recovery instructions that must be followed to achieve a smooth recovery and optimal results. Following recovery, you can see immediate results for a sculpted and refined jawline.
Who is a Candidate?
