It’s not something you want to show off to the world, but it’s difficult to keep it hidden in today’s world of video chats and social media platforms. You want to post pictures but are ashamed of your appearance. Dr. Anthony Miller at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery in California has effective solutions to help his clients meet their goals.

What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a surgical procedure. It removes excess fat from below the chin. The procedure breaks down the fatty deposits, suctioning them away leaving you with a slimmer profile around the neck and chin.

It is important to note that chin liposuction only removes fat, the procedure does not tighten sagging skin.

Recovering from chin liposuction is relatively painless and only takes a couple of weeks. The procedure only involves minor incisions, and most clients return to work after a week. You can choose to resume your normal routine earlier, but most patients prefer to let the swelling subside.

Even though it is an outpatient surgical procedure, some side effects are possible. Swelling and bruising around the incisions are common, and typically subside after a week or so. Bruising may also occur, but it also goes away within a few days.

Some rare side effects to be aware of include temporary numbness and hematoma. Improper wound healing and contour irregularities can also occur.

Is Chin Liposuction Right for You?

Chin liposuction is a relatively simple cosmetic procedure routinely performed by Dr. Miller at Orange County Cosmetic Surgery. Clients who are good candidates for chin liposuction are in good physical health and are ready to learn more about the risks and benefits associated with the procedure.

You want to have a stable body weight, before scheduling chin liposuction and have realistic expectations of what the procedure can achieve. Remember, the procedure only removes fat, so the best candidates have elasticity in their skin.
