What Is Submental Liposuction?

The primary goal of this procedure is to enhance your profile, reduce the appearance of a double chin, and create a more defined, youthful contour from the chin to the neck.

What To Expect From Your Submental Liposuction Surgery

Submental liposuction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you can go home after your procedure. Patients are given local anesthesia or a small injection of tumescent solution to numb the area. Dr. Garza then makes a small incision beneath the chin, through which a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) is inserted to break up and remove the excess fat. The incision is very short, resulting in minimal scarring.

Submental Liposuction FAQs

Is submental liposuction a substitute for weight loss?

Submental liposuction is not a weight loss solution but is ideal for removing localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise.

How long do the results of submental liposuction last?

Your results can last indefinitely with a stable weight and healthy lifestyle. The fat cells removed during the procedure will not return, but the remaining fat cells can still shrink or enlarge with weight fluctuations and affect your results.

When will I see the final results?

The initial swelling may take a few weeks to subside, but you should start seeing a noticeable difference within a month and ongoing improvements up to a year after your procedure.
