Submental Liposuction

Submental liposuction addresses the excess fat deposits that accumulate under the chin, often referred to as a”double chin”. It removes this excess fat making the chin area younger-looking. Submental liposuction also treats the sagginess of the skin, which will treat the imbalance in facial harmony between the face and neck. During the submental liposuction, a small incision is made behind the submental groove, and a rigid cannula is used to remove the fat deposits of the neck underneath the chin and lower jaw. Sometimes submental liposuction and neck lifts are often performed at the same time, and are commonly performed in concert with a chin implant and/or a facelift to enhance the overall appearance and achieve the most natural-looking results. Dr. Tien has vast experience in the different options and treatments needed for the neck that will create the facial harmony that patients desire.
