You’re at a party, and someone is about to take a photograph of you and your friends. Do you find yourself smiling with enthusiasm, or hiding behind your tallest friend to avoid it? Many patients who have submental fullness, or a “double chin,” will often feel incredibly self-conscious in situations where photos are taken. This excess fat underneath the chin can cause a patient to look heavier than they really are, and can impact their overall appearance. Thanks to continued improvements in cosmetic surgery, patients can now address this extra fat with submental liposuction.
How does submental liposuction work?
As with any type of liposuction available at a plastic surgeon’s office, submental liposuction suctions out the fat manually from a specific area of the body. In this case, the suctioned fat is removed from underneath the chin area. When this is done, patients will notice a significant reduction in the appearance of their double chin, and a more defined appearance around the chin and jaw line. Patients often restore their self-confidence and feel better about being in social situations where photos are being taken!
Who is a good candidate?
Both adult men and women have approached the team at The Bougainville Clinique to learn more about the treatment of submental fullness. The best candidates for submental liposuction are patients who are in good overall health and who are interested in the reduction of excess fat in this area of the face. During an initial consultation appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Hartog, patients can ask questions about the procedure and find out if this is the best approach to achieve their desired results.
