Submental liposuction is a minimally invasive treatment that removes stubborn fat deposits from the submental region (the area beneath the chin). With submental liposuction, Houston patients can enjoy a more contoured and sculpted facial profile.

Countless people experience an accumulation of submental fat due to genetics and aging. This excess fat hides chiseled jawlines and creates a double chin, making people look older and out of shape.

Double chins can be stubborn to eliminate, even with the harshest exercise regimens and diets. Submental lipo reduces the volume of a double chin. It can improve the appearance of the jawline and enhance definition.

Can Anyone Get Submental Liposuction?

People with an average or high degree of skin elasticity tend to be better candidates for submental liposuction than people with poor skin elasticity. Smokers are not ideal candidates for this treatment, since smoking reduces skin elasticity and hurts the body’s ability to recover after the surgery.

The best candidates have realistic expectations in terms of their submental liposuction results and are in overall good health.

Patients who belong to a family with a long history of submental fat are typically excellent candidates for submental liposuction.

Anyone who has been unable to get rid of excess submental fat through diet and exercise is an ideal candidate for submental liposuction. Candidates must be committed to maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle after the liposuction procedure.

What Happens During Submental Liposuction?

Submental lipo is a simple treatment that makes use of anesthesia and takes an hour to complete. Once the anesthesia takes full effect, Dr. Hennessy first marks the area to be treated, then makes a very small incision under the chin. A tumescent solution is administered, preventing the skin from bleeding while the fat is being suctioned away.

A cannula is inserted into the incision. This surgical tool is a thin tube with a sharp end used to loosen stubborn fat from the surrounding tissues. The fat is removed from the region through the tube with the help of vacuum suction. After treatment, the area will be dressed with a bandage.

What Happens After My Submental Liposuction Treatment?
