Submental Liposuction: Liposuction of the neck and liposuction of the chin

Posted By

Double Chin Removal, Dennis Dass, MD
Some of us have a double chin due to genetics. Some people just have a double chin when they look down, which is more apparent during a telephone-video chat session. Unfortunately, the extra fat in the neck and chin area make people look overweight and older. The neck is difficult to hide with clothes unless you live in a very cold climate. Fortunately, liposuction of the chin is a simple fix for this problem.

The process of neck and chin area skin tightening

Surgery requires just one small 2mm incision under the chin that hides very well. Over fifty percent of people have a scar in this area from a childhood fall anyway. Good candidates for surgery have extra fat below the chin and still have healthy skin. Liposuction of the chin and neck causes your body to form collagen, thereby tightening the skin, and creating a modest lift. Patients with loose skin may not get enough of a lift from liposuction alone, and would require a neck lift. Patients with very small chins can benefit from chin augmentation with a chin implant. These procedures can be combined to create a very well-defined neck and jawline, and a more youthful appearance.

Recovery from double chin removal

  • During the recovery, you will need a garment that wraps around the chin and the top of the head. This is worn all the time for the first week after surgery to help with the swelling and improve the way the skin re-drapes to create a neck lift.
  • After the first week, the garment will be worn at night or when you are at home, and not in public.
  • It is preferred that one sleeps without a pillow to keep the head in full extension for the first week after surgery.
  • There is minimal discomfort after liposuction in the chin.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
