Submental Liposuction


Submental liposuction is the surgical removal of unwanted fat deposits from the area below the chin by suctioning them away. The main objective of the surgery is not to remove excess weight, but improve contour of the jawline/chin. Small incisions are made near the area of lipodystrophy (excess fat); fluid is then injected, followed by the use of a cannula, which suctions out the fluid and the fat.
