Chin (Submental) Liposuction

The appearance of a double chin is a common complaint among men and women of all ages. Chin liposuction, also known as submental liposuction, performed by Boston plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Davidson, can reshape your neck and jawline, giving you the contoured look that you want. This outpatient procedure removes pockets of unwanted fat from under the chin, resulting in a slimmer, more contoured appearance of the face and neck. Men and women from Wellesley, Framingham, Newton, Natick, and other western suburbs of Boston and throughout the area visit Dr. Davidson for chin liposuction to remove their double chin.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

What Is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes pockets of unwanted fat from under the chin. Typically performed in-office under local anesthesia, this is a simple surgical procedure that can have a big impact on the appearance of your face and neck.

To perform the procedure, Dr. Davidson makes a small incision under the chin then inserts a small tube, called a cannula, to perform liposuction to remove the pocket of fat that forms a double chin.

Depending on the severity of your double chin and the amount of fat to remove, it is sometimes necessary to make an additional incision behind the earlobes to remove all of the fat and reshape the contours of your chin and jaw. 

How Much Does Chin Liposuction Cost?

The cost of chin liposuction varies depending on the amount of excess fat that needs to be removed and if there is additional skin tightening required to achieve the desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Davidson will develop a customized procedure with you, and will provide details including the cost of your chin liposuction procedure.

Can I Get Rid of a Double Chin with Diet and Exercise?

Diet and exercise can help reduce the appearance of a double chin if you are overweight, but for many individuals, genetics, aging, and other factors are to blame for a double chin, and no amount of jaw exercises or dieting will remove your double chin. For patients who are bothered by the appearance of a double chin, liposuction is the best option to remove it.

How Long Does Chin Liposuction Take?

Chin liposuction only takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete, depending on the amount of fat to remove. Dr. Davidson usually performs this procedure in his office under local anesthesia. This means you can return home the same day and usually return to normal activities within 3-4 days.

Chin Liposuction Recovery

The beauty of chin liposuction is that you will see results right away and will continue to see results as your body heals.

You can expect some initial swelling and will be provided with a compression garment to wear following surgery to help reduce swelling and improve results. Any pain from the surgery can be managed with oral pain medication.

Can Chin Liposuction be Combined with Other Procedures?

Chin liposuction can be combined with a chin implant or a neck lift for patients who require more jawline contouring and shaping to achieve a balanced appearance to their face and neck.

For patients seeking a nonsurgical option for treating a double chin, Dr. Davidson offers Kybella®, a minimally invasive injectable treatment designed to dissolve unwanted fat under the chin. Another nonsurgical option for treating a double chin is CoolSculpting®, which works by freezing the fat cells.
