What is chin liposuction?
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.
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.
Ideal Candidates for Chin Liposuction
If you have excess fat under your chin, you may be a good candidate for chin liposuction. If you start seeing sagging skin around your chin or neck, it may be time to explore your options.
It is important to maintain a positive attitude and realistic goals when you plan to undergo chin liposuction. The best candidates for this procedure are in good overall health and are non-smokers (or are willing to quit before the date of surgery).
Your initial consultation with Dr. Kenneth Hughes will involve a physical examination of your neck and chin. Dr. Hughes will help you determine if chin liposuction alone will give you the neck contour you desire. He will discuss your medical history, including underlying health conditions, allergies, past procedures, and current medications.
A discussion of the benefits and potential complications of the procedure will help you make an informed decision before undergoing chin liposuction.
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. Excess fat is carefully removed through the cannula via medical suction.
Recovery and Healing
There is a short recovery period after your chin liposuction. 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. You can get back to your normal routine a week after your procedure.
You may be prescribed certain medicines to manage discomfort and any side effects. Compression garments may be recommended to hasten the healing process. Please look at the before and after galleries below to see the transformations.

BEFORE & AFTER GALLERY
Chin liposuction, more accurately termed submental liposuction, can radically improve jaw and chin contours without making any noticeable scars in the appropriately selected patients.
Dr. Hughes and Lorena have been very helpful and patient with me. Dr Hughes answered all of my questions promptly by email and also spent 20 minutes on the phone with me discussing liposuction and a chin implant. He is direct and honest which I feel is what prospective patients need to look for in a surgeon. I have decided to move forward with chin/jawline liposuction because of the Dr & staff’s willingness to work with me. I have had difficulty deciding on the chin implant because my recessed chin and deviated septum cause breathing difficulties and because these are coupled with TMJ and neck pain I may need to do some kind of functional surgery. Again the Dr and his staff have been cool and I have not felt pressured. Will be going in for an in person assessment and will update my results after the liposuction
