What is Chin Liposuction?
It is the removal of fat under the chin that can give you the appearance of having a double chin. With a simple chin liposuction procedure, the fat deposits are removed with little downtime. As we get older, putting on a little weight, leading more sedentary lives are all factors that may contribute to having excess fat on the chin. Nothing is more annoying than a double chin. Genetics can also leave your chin, neckline, and jawline flabby.
It may show sagging and a less than defined look. Chin liposuction can give you the sleek profile you want and the added confidence that goes with it. It is a more straightforward process than a facelift. It does not require sutures. With SmartLipo, the doctor can perform contouring procedures to make your chin and face appear slimmer. Liposuction can effectively target the stubborn fat deposits in your double chin or jowls. It is the fastest, most efficient way to make your jawline look more chiseled. Chin liposuction removes excess fat to restore a defined jawline. It can help you get rid of:
- A double chin
- Sagging jowls
- Fat deposits along your jawline
Chin lipo is often combined with other face and body contouring procedures.
How Does Chin Liposuction Work?
Chin liposuction is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. It is done using a technique called tumescent liposuction. It uses local anesthesia to numb the area. It requires only one or a few tiny incisions to give you excellent results. It does not require general anesthesia or expensive plastic surgery. It is well suited for younger patients. The patients first receive mild oral sedation to help them feel relaxed yet aware.
Small incisions in the skin are made to introduce a tumescent solution. With the SmartLipo Triplex laser, your procedure will be performed to contour and remove fat cells in the submental area. The use of SmartLipo enables the best skin tightening possible. It allows the doctor to balance facial features and reduce the appearance of loose skin. The local anesthetic will wear off after a few hours. The results will start showing as the new collagen tightens the skin. Chin liposuction is an effortless procedure. Most patients can return to work the very next day. We advise patients to organize transport from the clinic because of the remaining effects of the sedative.

Particular Chin Lipo Risks
- Tightness It’s normal to experience some tightness after chin lipo. Depending on the patient, the tense/tight sensation may last for a period after surgery. We provide our patients with specific instructions and other resources (meds) to minimize neck tightness issues after the procedure.
- Bruising and swelling Slight bruising and swelling are expected after any liposuction procedure. Patients wear compression garments after surgery to minimize swelling. Bruising and swelling disappear within the week following your cosmetic surgery.
- Numbness Numbness isn’t as common as swelling and bruising. It can be a side-effect after the surgery. Usually, skin sensation returns within a month, but occasionally, numbness or nerve irritation persists.
