Slim and Sculpt
To begin your procedure, Dr. Augenstein will administer local anesthesia to ensure you do not feel anything during your submental liposuction. Next, he will make small incisions under the chin and behind the ears to access the fat deposits. These incisions are usually less than half an inch long and strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. Dr. Augenstein will then use a small cannula to gently suction the excess fat from the submental area. Last, he will carefully close the incisions with surgical glue.
You will notice an improvement immediately after your submental liposuction procedure. Your neck and chin will be noticeably slimmer, though you may have some redness and soreness around the incisions. You will be able to see your full results in about two months once your skin adapts to its new contours. The final results of submental liposuction can last up to almost a decade.
The first few days after submental liposuction are usually the most uncomfortable. You will likely experience some discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the chin and neck area. You may be prescribed pain medication to manage any discomfort. In addition, you must wear a compression garment on your chin and neck to help minimize swelling and support the healing process. Plan to get plenty of rest during the first week after submental liposuction. You can return to work within four or five days, but avoid strenuous exercise, bending over, or lifting heavy objects. We will provide you with aftercare instructions to support your recovery. You should see your full submental liposuction results in about two to three months.
The incision sites will be uncomfortable for a few days. We may prescribe or recommend over-the-counter pain medication to help with this discomfort.
Since many patients end up pairing their submental liposuction with a neck lift, it is hard to place a set price on this procedure. However, you can get more detailed and personalized information during your consultation, where one of our aesthetic specialists can provide an estimate for your procedure.
