Chin Fat Removal
Excess fat can deposit beneath the chin and in the neck and can prove to be stubborn and unappealing, despite a healthy total body weight. In these cases, depending on its location and distribution, various surgical and nonsurgical options such as Kybella, CoolSculpting, liposuction or surgical removal (submentoplasty) of these fat pockets can be considered.
How a submentoplasty differs from a neck lift:
- It is much less invasive and requires less recovery time
- Focuses specifically on the chin and upper neck area
- Ideal for those with excess chin fat and normal skin elasticity (do not require face or neck lift)
- Addresses excess fat deposits beneath the chin that are not reached by weight loss
