Neck Shaping: Submental Liposuction

Submental liposuction can oftentimes be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Removal of fat from below the chin helps define the neck and jawline taking age and weight off the lower face profile.

The Basics

Submental liposuction is a popular procedure for those seeking to improve the contour of their neck and jawline. By removing unwanted fat from the submental area, the surgery helps create a smoother transition from the chin to the neck, enhancing facial harmony and proportion. This procedure is ideal for individuals who feel that excess fat under the chin is detracting from their overall facial structure, offering a relatively quick and minimally invasive way to achieve a more refined look.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for submental liposuction is someone with a noticeable accumulation of fat beneath the chin, commonly known as a “double chin.” This condition can be caused by factors such as genetics, aging, or weight gain, and it often persists despite diet and exercise. Candidates seeking a more defined jawline and neck profile may find that submental liposuction offers an effective solution to remove this stubborn fat, creating a more sculpted and balanced facial appearance.
