What Is Submental Liposuction?
Submental liposuction helps tighten the muscles beneath the chin. By doing so, it minimizes the appearance of a double chin and improves the chin's contour.
In many instances, chin liposuction may be performed in conjunction with a facelift, neck lift and/or chin implant. The combination of chin liposuction and a facelift, neck lift and/or chin implant can significantly enhance a patient’s overall facial appearance.
Dr. Azizzadeh will teach an individual about chin liposculpture as part of an initial consultation. He will address a person's chin liposculpture concerns and questions and ensure he or she can establish realistic expectations for a chin liposculpture treatment.
Benefits of Chin Liposuction
Chin liposuction offers many benefits, including:
- Eliminates Double Chin: Chin liposuction offers a safe, proven treatment to eliminate a double chin.
- Enhances the Jawline: Thanks to chin liposuction, an individual can reap the benefits of a more defined jawline.
- Reduces Fat in the Neck: Double chin liposuction makes it simple for a person to minimize fat in the neck, creating a more natural transition from the neck to the jawline.

Recovery from Chin Liposuction
Bruising and swelling are common after double chin surgery. Meanwhile, most patients will be able to return to work one week following treatment.
After double chin liposuction, a patient will usually wear a head-wrap that keeps pressure under the chin. The head-wrap helps minimize chin swelling and ensures the skin will conform to the neck contour correctly.
Typically, a double chin liposuction patient will wear a head-wrap for about a week following surgery. He or she should try to remain elevated in an upright position in the days after surgery to speed up the healing process and reduce swelling.
Dr. Azizzadeh and his staff will help a patient prepare for double chin liposuction recovery. The surgeon will offer expert support before, during and after double chin surgery to help a patient achieve his or her treatment goals.
Am I Candidate for Double Chin Surgery?
An individual who is concerned about excess skin and fat in the chin area may prove to be an ideal candidate for double chin surgery.
Alternatively, Kybella injections represent popular non-surgical treatment option for submental liposuction. The in-office injections consist of a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a substance that the body produces naturally to eliminate fat. To get the best results, patients typically need 2 - 4 Kybella treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Azizzadeh can describe how Kybella injections work, outline the benefits of Kybella injections and help an individual determine if chin liposuction or Kybella is a better option.
