Many of our patients travel a great distance to have surgery with Dr. Schulman, so we understand that it may not be possible for you to come to our office for your initial consultation.
If you have struggled with excess fullness beneath your chin and have found limited success with lifestyle adjustments such as diet and exercise, chin liposuction may be for you. Excess fat around the neck and chin area is often genetic, so correcting this issue frequently necessitates surgery. Fortunately, if you live in Westchester chin liposuction is a commonly performed, minimally invasive procedure that requires little downtime.
What is Chin Liposuction?
Chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction or simply “chin lipo”, is a cosmetic procedure that can effectively eliminate a double chin and improve your overall jawline and neck appearance. The process involves numbing the treatment area, making a small incision beneath the chin, and using a cannula to gently suction out fat. Only a small amount of fat removal can make a significant difference in your appearance.

Chin and Neck Liposuction Benefits
Neck and chin liposuction removes excess fat from the neck and creates a more defined and well-contoured jawline and chin. Once healed from this procedure, individuals can attain a more youthful, attractive appearance and redefine their facial profile. Incorporating chin liposuction into your aesthetic journey can lead to a profound change in your self-perception and confidence.

How Does Fat Removal Under Chin Work?
First, a specialized tumescent numbing solution will be injected into the chin area to constrict blood vessels and plump up fat cells. When necessary, the addition of intravenous sedation can be used alongside the numbing solution.
Next, a small incision is carefully made beneath the chin (and sometimes behind the earlobes). A thin, specialized tube called a cannula is then inserted through the incision. This gently suctions out the excess fat cells.
Dr. Schulman aims to achieve a smooth, natural-looking result. After the fat removal is complete, your incision(s) will be carefully closed, and a compression garment will be placed on the chin and neck area.

Submental Liposuction Recovery
During your double chin surgery recovery, there will be some normal swelling and bruising. Pain and discomfort are usually minimal and can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.
You will be required to wear your compression garment for around a week. Take it easy during the healing process, but you may continue on with your normal activities. Just don’t push yourself too hard physically.
It is critical that you follow Dr. Schulman’s instructions for post-operative care. As the weeks progress, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in your chin and neck contour. Most individuals can expect to see their full results in about six months.
Chin Liposuction Risks
Complications from chin liposuction are rare. Still, as with any facial plastic surgery, it’s important to know about the potential risks. These may include infection, bruising, swelling, and uneven contouring. Going to an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon and following post-operative instructions is crucial for minimizing risks and ensuring a smooth recovery and great outcome.

Questions and Answers
What does chin liposuction after 1 week look like?
After a week, you can expect a reduction in swelling and bruising, so you’ll have a clearer idea of your new and improved appearance.
Still, it’s important to keep in mind that individual healing varies, and the extent of swelling and your final results will continue to evolve over the coming weeks and months. Always follow Dr. Schulman’s post-operative instructions with care to ensure the best possible outcome.
How long do chin lipo results last?
The results of chin liposuction are generally long-lasting. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight, the improvements achieved with this procedure can remain visible for many years, contributing to a more defined and youthful chin and neck contour.
How painful is chin liposuction?
Chin liposuction generally causes minimal discomfort. Most patients just require local anesthesia (numbing medication), as opposed to general anesthesia, and report feeling only mild to moderate pain. Neck lift surgery procedures to correct skin laxity can sometimes cause more discomfort.
Will I have a chin lipo scar?
The incisions made during chin lipo are typically small and strategically placed to minimize visibility. This results in little scarring. Dr. Schulman takes great care to ensure that the incisions heal well and blend seamlessly with the natural contours of your chin and neck area.

Is chin liposuction bruising normal?
Yes, bruising is a common and expected side effect after removing excess fat with chin liposuction.
The delicate blood vessels in the treated area can be temporarily affected during the procedure, which can lead to bruising. This typically subsides within a few weeks after neck liposuction as your body heals.
Does Liposuction under chin work?
Yes, under the chin liposuction can enhance the definition of the jawline by eliminating surplus fat and refining the shape of the chin and neck region. This technique is specifically designed to address submental fat, located beneath the chin, and can significantly diminish the visibility of a double chin or an indistinct jawline contour.
