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 some 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 area often do not respond to diet and exercise. This means that someone with a healthy lifestyle and ideal body weight can still have aesthetic issues that they cannot solve without reconstructive surgery. In addition, many are hereditarily prone to developing submental fatty tissue and might have lived with the trouble for much of their lives.

Fast & Great Results

Patients prefer the submental liposuction procedure as it can offer results quickly by reducing 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 remove the excessive fat. A tiny dissolvable suture will be used to close the incision. Numerous patients express feeling much more confident once they recover. The result of this procedure is a more defined and sculpted chin and jawline.

Recovering From Submental Liposuction

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 Do Results Last?

Submental liposuction procedure has long-term results. However, extreme weight fluctuations may have a negative impact, so a healthy lifestyle is recommended to keep the area contoured and slim-looking.
