Submental Liposuction

The Permanent Solution to Fat Loss

Submental Liposuction is a common in-office procedure to permanently get rid of unwanted fat under the chin/neck area. The “double chin” is often times genetic or a difficult area to get rid of even with diet and exercise. Liposuction in the chin and neck area is the permanent solution to looking and feeling slimmer, more youthful, and your most confident self.

What Should I Expect?

The Submental Liposuction treatment is minimally invasive. You will first come in for a consultation where we will evaluate if you are a candidate. Following, you will have a pre-treatment appointment where we will go over all after-care and instructions.

Procedure Day:

On procedure day, we will numb the area with local anesthesia and then treat the submental fat. We will use our device to break up and suction out the unwanted fat. You shouldn’t feel much during the treatment due to the numbing agent. With advanced techniques, Dr. Espinoza can do the procedure without any surgical incision or stitches.

Immediately After Procedure:

Often times we will treat immediately after with our MORPHEUS8 treatment. This is the best time to offer additional skin tightening and heat to make sure the skin in that area retracts even more, yielding the best possible result. After that is complete, we will wrap the area treated in a dressing in which you will go home with that day.

Following your procedure, we will see you at 1 week for a follow-up visit. You will avoid strenuous lifting and exercise for 4-6 weeks. We expect to see full results at about 3-6 months out when swelling has fully subsided and skin has tightened.

Potential Follow-up Procedures:

After your submental liposuction swelling has gone down, we may follow up with Ulthera, Kybella or even dermal filler to chisel your lateral jawline depending on your individual goals.
