Liposuction in Facial Plastic Surgery
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and Dr. Lee performs liposuction using only the latest techniques. Liposuction is a procedure that can help contour your body by removing unwanted fat from certain parts of the body, including the double chin (submental liposuction). Combined with proper diet and exercise, liposuction helps you achieve the appearance you’ve always desired. While diet and exercise shrink the fat cells, liposuction actually removes the fat cells permanently from stubborn areas of your body.
In the face, the most popular region of liposuction is for the double chin in the submental area (the area under the chin that sags and is more prominent when you smile). Almost immediately after liposuction, you will notice a difference in the contour of the region. Minimal swelling will be present after submental liposuction to remove the double chin but will resolve with time to achieving a tight neck contour from liposuction.
Many people seeking submental liposuction have excess fat under the chin that creates a double chin appearance. This double chin becomes more prominent when smiling and persists even with diet and exercise. In fact, some people who are fit and thin still have fat in this submental area. Submental liposuction is an in-office procedure that can remove the fat cells permanently and contour this double chin area. Submental liposuction can be done under local anesthesia so that you are awake during the entire procedure. Scarring is minimal and essentially unnoticeable, especially with Dr. Lee’s meticulous attention to detail and with our special post-procedure recommendations to minimize any potential scarring.
