Chin Liposuction

Bichectomy (Buccal fat removal)

    Excess fat under the chin, commonly referred to as a “double chin,” is a common concern for many people. While diet and exercise can help reduce overall body fat, they may not always be effective at targeting the submental (chin) area. Fortunately, chin liposuction is a safe and effective solution for those looking to remove excess fat from this area and achieve a more defined jawline.

    Chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction or chin sculpting, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess fat from under the chin and neck area. The procedure involves making a small incision under the chin or behind the ears and using a thin tube called a cannula to suction out the excess fat.

    If you have excess fat under your chin that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for chin liposuction. It’s important to note that this procedure is not a weight loss solution and is best suited for individuals who are at or near their ideal weight. It’s also important to have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure.

    Chin liposuction is usually performed under local anesthesia, and patients can return home the same day. The procedure typically takes around one to two hours to complete. After making a small incision under the chin or behind the ears, the surgeon inserts the cannula and carefully removes the excess fat.

    The results of chin liposuction are typically long-lasting and provide a more defined and contoured jawline. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to prevent the accumulation of new fat in the treated area.

    If you’re considering chin liposuction, it’s important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. During your consultation, the surgeon can evaluate your medical history, examine your chin and neck area, and discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure.
