SUBMENTAL LIPOSUCTION PROCEDURE

Submental liposuction procedure for individuals who have excessive submental fat but good skin elasticity. Patients are generally forty to forty-five years of age or younger. As with all types of surgeries, good health and realistic expectations are also important.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Dr. O’Mara will often perform submental liposuction in the office procedure room under local anesthesia. When combined with other procedures, it may be performed in an outpatient surgery center under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia is administered, Dr. O’Mara will make a small, inconspicuous incision beneath the chin. A narrow liposuctioninstrument called a cannula is then placed beneath the skin and the fat is removed, shaping the jaw line and neck.

SUBMENTAL LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY

The recovery after submental liposuction takes approximately five to seven days but the cosmetic result may not be fully realized for up to three months. During this time, patients may experience some minor bruising and swelling. Discomfort is generally mild. Most patients find that they can return to non-strenuous work the next day, though strenuous work and activities will need to be postponed for about three weeks.
