A double chin can appear from a buildup of fat deposits and loosened skin over time. The stubborn fat under your chin can be nearly impossible to eliminate, even with a perfect diet and a healthy amount of exercise. A double chin can be caused by genetics, weight, anatomy, and airway positioning. Plastic surgeons use various methods, including chin liposuction, to improve the appearance and minimize excess fat under the chin and around the neck area. Chin liposuction can melt away your insecurities by diminishing excess fat and sculpting your jawline, causing a more youthful appearance.

What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is also known as submental liposuction and neck liposuction. This cosmetic procedure helps to minimize unwanted fat under the chin and near the neck area. This procedure contours and defines your chin area, resulting in a more sculpted chin and neckline.  Chin liposuction works by inserting a small cannula into the chin and sucking out unwanted fat cells from the area. This minimizes fat, causing a smoother and more sculpted facial profile.

Chin Liposuction Procedure

Your doctor will discuss the chin liposuction procedure in depth during a consultation with you before your procedure. Here, you can discuss your medical history, medications, and all stages of the procedure.

Your chin liposuction procedure will start with your surgeon making 3 small incisions in a discreet spot hidden under the chin and behind the ears where a cannula is inserted which sucks away your unwanted fat. The procedure is takes about an hour and is performed under general anesthesia. You will need someone to care for you on the day of surgery.

Recovery Process

You should wear the chin wrap continuously for 2-3 weeks after your chin liposuction procedure to help define the jawline and improve the results. After your procedure, you can expect between 10-14 days of bruising, swelling, and tenderness. Your full recovery can take between three to four weeks.
