What is chin liposuction

Submental liposuction, or lipectomy, is a surgical procedure to reduce the fat under the chin directly and mechanically using a small incision under the chin and two incisions behind the ears. The procedure is sometimes combined with a facelift, FaceTite radiofrequency or facial implants.

Benefits Of chin liposuction

There are many benefits of chin liposuction. It removes excess fat from your chin, refines your jawline, improves your silhouette, and even reduces neck wrinkles because it tightens your skin. It’s a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that gets rid of chin fat without scarring, bruising or side effects.


If you are experiencing sagging neck tissue, you likely want to have this optimized and achieve a noticeable improvement in your overall appearance.

Dieting and exercise only goes so far.

Your surgeon will determine whether local or sedation anesthesia is best suited during your consultation. In most cases, local anesthesia is fine for the procedure.

Liposuction should take under an hour in most cases.

The chin and neck are where the early signs of aging tend to appear early on. Chin liposuction helps reduce natural fat build-up.

The procedure is considered minimally invasive with tiny incisions being made. A surgical cannula is inserted and used to suction out the fatty tissue safely. Results are seen quickly, and side effects are minimal.

What happens during a submental liposuction consultation?

A consultation starts with a complete history and physical examination. We specifically examine skin elasticity and excess facial fat. This is an essential communication tool as some patients want changes that are not always possible in surgery.

Then, we talk about surgery and recovery, and Dr. Moubayed answers any and all questions you may have.

Multiple consultations are sometimes necessary before deciding to proceed with surgery. Cosmetic facial surgery is an important decision to make and it is important that you are well informed before proceeding with it.

How do I prepare myself for a submental liposuction consultation?

It is a good idea to prepare yourself for your consultation and this is easily done.

First, prepare to list in order of importance the elements you would like to improve in your face: jowling, submental fat, neck platysmal bands, among others. Do you find you have weak cheekbones or a weak chin? Are there any other regions that bother you in your face such as your eyebrows, eyes, nose, or lips?

Finally, if you have had cosmetic soft tissue fillers to the face, try to find out which products were injected and when. If you have already had facial surgery, try to bring with you the operative report of your prior procedures if this is possible.

Am I A Good Candidate For A Chin Liposuction Procedure?

To find out if you are a good candidate for submental liposuction, consider the following factors:

  1. Do you have real excess fat under the chin, or is it excess muscle or skin? A consultation can help you find out.
  2. Is your chin in the appropriate position? A weak chin can give the impression of excess submental fat and is corrected using chin augmentation.
  3. Have you tried (and failed at) weight loss and diet change to reduce submental fat?
  4. Is your skin elastic enough to re-drape over your new chin after liposuction? A consultation can help you find out.

What type of anesthesia is used for submental liposuction?

Submental liposuction can be performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. When combined with a more extensive surgery such as a facelift, it can be performed under general anesthesia.

When combined with another procedure under general anesthesia, the type of anesthesia used is total intravenous anesthesia (without using anesthetic gases). This type of anesthesia is safe and helps reduce nausea and coughing after surgery. Our patients often report how positive their anesthesia experience was.

How long does it take to perform submental liposuction?

Submental liposuction is a quick and painless procedure when performed appropriately. By using modern techniques that enable maximum control, it generally takes around 30 minutes.

How long is recovery after submental liposuction?

Patients leave the surgical center the same day and recover at home with an elastic pressure garment to be worn 24/7 and very precise instructions.

Your first post-operative appointment will take place 5 to 7 days later, where your dressing and stitches will be removed, and your wound will be examined. At that point, you can return to your regular activities and any swelling and bruising can be hidden with concealer.

Light physical activity can be resumed after a week, but for more vigorous activities like weightlifting, it is recommended to wait three weeks to minimize bleeding risk.

How long does swelling last after a submental liposuction treatment?

After a week, you’ll be very presentable in society. The majority of swelling decreases over the first 6 weeks, but minimal (barely visible) swelling can persist for up to a year.

It is important to look at multiple factors during your submental liposuction surgeon choice:

  1. Does your surgeon have specific expertise in facial surgery and anatomy to be able to minimize complications?
  2. Can your surgeon perform all types of procedures on the chin and neck to be able to choose which one is most adapted to your needs?
  3.  Did you have a positive experience and feel comfortable during your consultation?

Are there non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to submental liposuction?

Carefully selected patients can benefit from deoxycholic acid injections. However, given that these injections require multiple settings and are generally expensive, Dr. Moubayed’s patients most often opt for submental liposuction.

Nothing replaces consultation with a certified facial plastic surgery doctor that can offer all procedures (non-invasive and invasive) to determine which one is most appropriate for your facial needs.

What are the risks of submental liposuction?

Like any plastic surgery, submental liposuction presents the universal (but minimal) risks of scarring, bleeding, swelling and bruising, infection (superficial or deep), and pain (temporary or permanent).

However, the main risk of any cosmetic surgery is not being satisfied with the expected result.

After a proper consultation that includes a complete examination and photo evaluation, Dr. Moubayed can generally produce the results desired by the patient. However, we do not control the healing of tissues, and some patients heal in an unpredictable way producing asymmetries or irregularities that can sometimes require touch-ups.

Submental liposuction involves the risk of producing paralysis of a facial nerve branch, scars, temporary (and sometimes permanent) numbness of the face or ear (via the great auricular nerve), hair loss, and changes in skin pigmentation.

Dr. Moubayed is a surgeon that is exclusively trained in facial surgery. He has a conservative and individualized approach with each patient. All patients are followed closely after surgery with very precise and very clear instructions. All of this is done in order to minimize the risks listed above.

Things You Should Know Before Getting chin liposuction

Chin Liposuction: Frequently Asked Questions for Cosmetic Chin Surgery.

Chin Liposuction Recovery Time Is Usually One to Three Days

Almost all are back within three days when the swelling has lessened, and many are fully recovered after a week. Pain associated with chin lipo is usually minimal. Dr. Moubayed uses local anesthesia for the procedure itself to sedate the patient.

How long after chin liposuction will I see results? The results of chin liposuction surgery become noticeable within one week of treatment. Patients often find that their neck starts to look more youthful and sculpted once swelling and bruising disappear after their chin liposuction surgery.

As with any major surgery, liposuction carries risks, such as bleeding and a reaction to anesthesia. Possible complications specific to liposuction include: Contour irregularities. Your skin may appear bumpy, wavy or withered due to uneven fat removal, poor skin elasticity and unusual healing

There’s just one potential drawback to the fat removal surgery. While it will quickly get rid of unwanted fat, it can also leave you with skin that’s loose and saggy. Depending on how much fat gets removed and the condition of your skin, you might feel more self-conscious after liposuction than you were before.

What should I eat after liposuction?

  • Lean meat such as chicken breast.
  • Fish.
  • Beans and legumes.
  • Nuts and seeds.
  • Whole grains.
  • Leafy green vegetables.
  • Red meat in moderation.
  • Protein supplements, such as protein powder for shakes.

SLEEPING POSITION: Sleep on your back with your head elevated on 2 pillows for at least 1-‐2 weeks after surgery. Avoid turning your head from side to side. Turn with your whole upper body. nausea.
