Stubborn Chin Fat? Liposuction Can Help


Excess chin fat is a common cosmetic concern, and it is not always linked to weight. It can be a natural part of your anatomy but one you struggle to feel confident with. Also known as submental fullness, chin fat can be remedied through cosmetic surgery. Chin liposuction is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure that can work to reshape the lower area of the face, and it can usually be performed under local anesthesia.

What Is Chin Liposuction?

Just like liposuction anywhere else on the body, chin liposuction works to surgically remove excess fat. When you have a liposuction procedure, the fat cells in the treatment are broken down and removed.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Chin Liposuction?

Many people are healthy candidates for the process of chin liposuction. Your doctor will discuss whether the procedure is a good fit for your health and goals. To be a good candidate for chin liposuction, you should generally be in good health. It’s important that you’re committed to maintaining your body weight, as large fluctuations in weight can change the appearance of the chin.

Does Chin Liposuction Hurt?

Thankfully, chin liposuction is not painful. In most cases, people who have chin liposuction only need local anesthesia, much like you get at the dentist when you’re getting a cavity filled. Before the liposuction procedure, your doctor will inject tumescent fluid into the treatment area. This fluid contains a combination of lidocaine (to numb the area), epinephrine to prevent excessive bleeding, sodium bicarbonate as a pH neutralizer, and saline.

Chin Liposuction Recovery

Most people who have chin liposuction experience some soreness and discomfort following the procedure. Typically, these effects are mild. Most people who have chin liposuction find that their soreness is at its worst a day or two after the procedure, then fades over the next few days.
