Neck and chin (submental) liposuction is an ideal procedure for people with stubborn fatty deposits under the chin or in the lateral neck region that do not respond to diet and exercise.
These contour deformities can be sculpted to match the surrounding face by suctioning out unwanted fat cells. Sometimes surgical tightening of the deeper muscle layers is also needed.
Candidates for Submental Liposuction
Submental Liposuction Procedure
During the first 24-48 hours following surgery, excess liposuction fluid and liquefying fat cells drain from small openings. Your chin and neck area may be swollen, bruised, and sore for several weeks.
Eighty percent of the swelling is gone after 2 weeks. The remaining swelling fades away within the next 2-3 months as your results continue to improve. The day following surgery, you may shower.
You should wear the compression garment 23 of the 24 hours of the day, including to bed each night for the first week. Beginning week two, you will need to wear the compression garment 12 hours a day for an additional 3 weeks of compression. Your scars are permanent but will fade over time. Most patients return to work in one week.
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for neck and chin (submental) liposuction procedure is to schedule a consultation. You will learn the reasonable expectations for the goals you wish to achieve.
