Before and After Photos

What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction, or submental liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to remove excess fat cells beneath the chin and in the submental area. It specifically targets the area commonly called the “double chin.” In addition to the submental site, upper neck treatment is often included in chin liposuction for comprehensive results, contouring the entire chin and neck region.

It is an effective way to address localized fat in the submental area and for double chin removal, which enhances overall facial aesthetics and restores balance to the profile. The extent of the procedure is determined during the consultation, considering individual anatomy and desired outcomes, aiming for a smoother jawline and improved overall aesthetic appearance.


Preoperative preparation and consultation

A thorough preoperative preparation and chin liposuction consultation process is essential before undergoing chin liposuction. During this stage, you will meet with Dr. Greenberg, our experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, who will evaluate your specific goals and assess your suitability for the procedure.

Dr. Greenberg will discuss the anticipated outcomes, address your chin lipo questions or concerns, and guide you through the process. Additionally, preoperative instructions will be provided to ensure optimal preparation for the procedure.

Chin lipo procedure

On the day of the chin lipo procedure, you will be comfortably situated in our state-of-the-art surgical facility. The double chin liposuction procedure typically involves local anesthesia or twilight sedation, ensuring comfort. Dr. Greenberg will make a small incision beneath the chin or discreet locations around the jawline.

A thin cannula is inserted through these tiny incisions, gently suctioning the excess fat deposits. Dr. Greenberg performs the procedure precisely to sculpt the chin area and create a more defined contour. The duration of the chin lipo procedure may vary depending on individual circumstances.

Recovery and Postoperative care

After chin liposuction, you will receive detailed postoperative instructions to promote a smooth recovery. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or minimal discomfort in the treated area, which is normal and temporary.

Following Dr. Greenberg’s prescribed medication, dressings, and care guidelines is essential. A compression garment may be recommended to aid healing and support the newly contoured area. Dr. Greenberg and our dedicated staff will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, answer any postoperative questions, and ensure a successful recovery.


After chin liposuction, you can expect a significant reduction in excess fat beneath the chin, resulting in a more defined and sculpted jawline. The procedure aims to eliminate the appearance of a double chin and create a balanced facial contour. The exact results will vary depending on individual factors such as skin elasticity and overall facial structure.

In the long term, maintaining the results of chin liposuction requires a commitment to a healthy lifestyle. For chin liposuction patients, it is essential to understand that while the targeted fat cells are permanently removed during the procedure, weight gain in other body areas is still possible. Therefore, maintaining a stable weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise is necessary to preserve improved chin and jawline contours.

Additionally, proper skin care and sun protection are essential for maintaining the quality and elasticity of the skin in the treated area. Protecting the upper neck skin from excessive sun exposure and following a skincare routine recommended by Dr. Greenberg can help minimize aging effects and ensure your results’ longevity.

Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Greenberg will allow them to monitor your progress and provide guidance on any additional maintenance or touch-up procedures that may be beneficial. By adhering to a healthy lifestyle and practicing good skincare habits, you can enjoy the long-term benefits of chin liposuction and sustain the improved appearance of your chin and jawline for years to come.


Chin liposuction offers numerous benefits that can positively impact your physical appearance and self-confidence. Here are some critical advantages of undergoing this procedure:

Is neck liposuction the same as chin liposuction?

Yes, neck and chin liposuction is the same. Both target the area beneath the chin by removing excess fat from the entire neck area, including the jawline and under the chin, to enhance chin definition.

Who is an ideal suitable candidate for chin liposuction?

Good candidates for chin liposuction typically have localized fat deposits beneath the chin, resulting in a double chin or lack of chin definition. In addition, candidates should have good overall health, realistic expectations, and be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle following the procedure. Finally, a chin lipo consultation with a plastic surgeon must determine individual candidacy based on good skin elasticity and overall facial aesthetics.

Can chin liposuction eliminate a double chin?

Yes, chin liposuction is a highly effective procedure for eliminating a double chin which targets and removes excess fat cells beneath the chin and can significantly minimize the appearance of a double chin, revealing more natural-looking results of a defined and contoured jawline and chin.

What are the potential complications or risks of removing excess fat from the chin area?

Chin liposuction carries potential risks and complications like any surgical procedure. These may include infection, bleeding, scarring, asymmetry, nerve damage, and adverse reactions to general anesthesia. However, such risks are minimized when performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon.

What procedure or skin tightening can address loose skin after excess submental fat removal?

Various procedures and techniques are available to address loose skin after removing excess submental fat cells to achieve optimal results. A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery treatment that aims to lessen and tightens sagging or loose neck skin in the neck and jawline area. By carefully trimming and tightening the excess skin, a neck lift can enhance the contour and firmness of the neck and jawline. Skin tightening treatments can be used to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, such as radiofrequency skin tightening. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes focused ultrasound energy for gradual skin lifting and tightening. Injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers or collagen-stimulating injections, can also be used strategically to add volume and enhance skin tightness.
