Chin Liposuction Los Angeles, CA

Chin liposuction, more accurately termed submental liposuction, can radically improve jaw and chin contours without making any noticeable scars in the appropriately selected patients. The technique can be used in conjunction with chin implants and/or face and neck lifts to make an even more marked improvement.

Dr. Hughes will help you determine if chin liposuction alone will give you the neck contour you desire. As people age, skin laxity or looseness becomes greater, and people eventually need face and neck lifts to address their hanging neck skin and fat as well as loose muscle in the neck called the platysma.

Chin liposuction is performed with a 2 mm liposuction cannula through a 2 mm incision hidden in the chin fold. The procedure can be performed under local anesthetic, sedation, or general depending on patient preference. The patient goes home the same day. The patient wears a compression garment around the head for the first few days to a week. There will be some bruising and swelling that will quickly fade. Please look at the before and after galleries below to see the transformations.
