When it comes to facial features, there are few things more dreaded than having a double chin.. Even those who are close to or at their ideal body weight still struggle with the submental fat that accumulates underneath the chin. For both men and women from Atlanta and Alpharetta struggling with unwanted fat under the chin and in the neck region – submental liposuction with Robb Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery may be the go-to solution. This cosmetic surgery has all the potential to help men and women feel more confident, look great, and feel healthy.

What is Submental Liposuction?

Submental liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to get rid of the excess fat around the jawline and neck. The submental liposuction procedure gives a toned, well-contoured facial profile by removing the excess fat in the area. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can safely return home soon after it is completed. However, there is minimal downtime involved with the procedure so you will need to take some time off work to rest and recover.

Why Choose Submental Liposuction?

The stubborn fatty deposits under the chin and in the neck region oftentimes do not respond to dieting and physical exercise. This fundamentally means that someone with a healthy lifestyle and ideal body weight can still face aesthetic trouble that they cannot solve without reconstructive surgery. In addition, many are hereditarily prone to develop submental fatty tissue and might have lived with the trouble for a big part of their lives.

Patients prefer the submental liposuction procedure as it can offer first-class results quickly to get rid of any unreactive fatty tissue that persists after weight loss. This simple procedure demands IV sedation (conscious sedation) and takes under an hour to complete. Only tiny incisions are made to approach the excessive fat. A tiny dissolvable suture will be used to close the incision. Numerous patients express feeling much more confident once they fully recover. The result of this procedure is a more defined and sculpted chin and jawline.

Like all other surgical procedures, submental liposuction requires some downtime. Most patients typically need to take one to two weeks off work and other routine activities, including physical exercise. Patients may shower the day after the surgical procedure but will need to avoid submerging the area while it heals. Side effects like discomfort, bruising, and swelling are temporary and can well be minimized with prescription medication. The side effects will fade bit by bit as the incisions heal and the new contours emerge.

How Long the Results Last from the Submental Liposuction Procedure?

Submental liposuction procedure offers long-run results. Extreme weight fluctuations may negatively impact results, so a healthy lifestyle is recommended to prolong results from this procedure.
