What is a Submentoplasty?

If you want to see a firmer, slimmer neckline accomplished with minimally invasive techniques, a submentoplasty may make a good option for you.

A submentoplasty addresses the area under the chin where people often see fullness or a double chin. Called the submental area, this part of the body can accumulate fat even if you lead a healthy lifestyle. A submentoplasty uses less invasive techniques than a full neck lift. Your surgeon will use liposuction to remove deposits of fat from under the chin, then use small incisions to tighten the neck muscles for a more contoured, balanced appearance.

Ideal candidates have fat accumulations in the submental area but do not have large amounts of loose skin. We will discuss the benefits of a submentoplasty and similar procedures during your consultation to determine which will work best for you. Ideal candidates will be in good overall health and not smoke.

Patients will undergo submentoplasty under anesthesia so that they will feel no discomfort. The length of the procedure varies from patient to patient but will usually last a few hours. The surgery will remove a noticeable amount of excess fat, leaving you with a more contoured chin and neck. The muscle tightening, which gives the area a firmer appearance, sets submentoplasty apart from neck liposuction alone.

You may receive a supportive strap to wear around the area to improve healing after submentoplasty. You will also receive instructions for the care of the surgical area. Following these closely will help ensure the best final results. Most people can return to work within a week. Risks, including the possibility of infection in the incisions, will be discussed at your consultation. 

You will see a firmer, more slender neckline with a more defined chin. The appearance of a double chin can disappear, leaving you looking slimmer and more youthful. We can let patients see the possible results of their surgery using computer imaging. This allows patients to provide their input on what they envision for their results. Seeing your results before surgery can help make sure you achieve the look you had pictured for yourself. 

Our expert surgeons will be pleased to meet with you to discuss submentoplasty, give you some idea what to expect, and review the possible risks. We can discuss the range of options available for the neck area and help you decide if submentoplasty is right for you.
