What Is Submental Liposuction?

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that permanently removes deposits of fat to sculpt a leaner, sleeker appearance. Submental liposuction targets the submental fat below your chin to reduce the appearance of double chin and create more definition in the jawline. 

While each minimally invasive submental liposuction procedure is specifically designed to address the unique needs of each individual patient, typically they will improve the appearance of: 

  • Double chin
  • Skin laxity
  • Jawline definition

Patients who are considering submental liposuction may also be concerned about the appearance of their mid- or upper-facial regions as well. Other rejuvenation procedures can be performed simultaneously for full facial rejuvenation, including: 

No matter your facial rejuvenation goals, double board-certified Dr. Daugherty takes the time to understand your concerns and recommend only those treatments that will help you achieve your desired results.

What Are the Benefits of Submental Liposuction?

Typically, submental fat is stubborn and does not go away no matter how much you diet or exercise. Submental liposuction can help rejuvenate and enhance your appearance by tightening the chin and neck region, creating a sleeker, slimmer, more youthful jawline and profile that will boost your confidence.

Following your submental liposuction procedure, you’ll experience:

  • Slimmer, more balanced facial profile 
  • More youthful appearance
  • Tightened skin 
  • Safe, effective, long-lasting results

Often, chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelifts, brow lifts, eyelid surgeries, or neck lifts are performed with submental liposuction for full facial rejuvenation. Visit our gallery for before and after submental liposuction results.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Submental Liposuction?

Generally, submental liposuction candidates in Louisiana are patients who are bothered by the appearance of fat under their chin (double chin) and are seeking long-lasting results for a slimmer, more youthful-looking facial appearance. Patients who have excess loose skin or minimal submental fat are typically not good candidates for submental liposuction. However, Dr. Daugherty offers other procedures, such as neck lift, that may suit your needs. 

Dr. Daugherty recommends candidates for submental liposuction:

  • Live a healthy lifestyle
  • Be non-smokers, or be willing to quit prior to surgery
  • Have no medical conditions that impair healing
  • Have realistic expectations and a positive outlook 
  • Understand the surgical risks

What Can I Expect During a Submental Liposuction Procedure?

Dr. Daugherty customizes all submental liposuction procedures for the optimal results of each patient. However, here are some general steps you can expect.

Check-In and Anesthesia
Plan on arriving about an hour prior to your procedure. After you’ve been greeted by our team, Dr. Daugherty will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, and perform surgical markings. Once you are safely sedated, Dr. Daugherty will begin your procedure.
Submental Liposuction Procedure
According to your procedural plan, Dr. Daugherty will create small, well-concealed incisions beneath the chin or behind the ears. From these incisions, Dr. Daugherty will remove excess fat to sculpt and refine the appearance of the chin and jawline.
Submental Liposuction Aftercare
After your submental liposuction, bruising and swelling are quite normal. A compression dressing may be placed around your head and chin to minimize swelling and allow your body to adjust to its new contours. Typically, most patients can return to work in a week.

Baton Rouge, LA Submental Liposuction

The cost of submental liposuction in Louisiana is determined by your individual needs and desired aesthetic results. Following your consultation, Dr. Daugherty will give you a breakdown of the cost of your submental liposuction.

Following submental liposuction, you will experience swelling and bruising that may last for a couple of weeks. However, most patients feel better and can return to their normal routine three to five days following their procedure. Minor swelling may persist for several months; however, most patients are back to normal activities by a month post-procedure.

Depending on your procedural plan, Dr. Daugherty creates small, well-concealed incisions beneath the chin or behind the ears. However, these scars heal well and are usually not noticeable.

In addition to submental liposuction surgery, Dr. Daugherty also specializes in other facial rejuvenation procedures, including brow lift surgery, eyelid surgery, facelift surgery, and neck lift.

While compression dressings and chin straps might be a bother, they help minimize swelling and allow your body to adjust to its new contours. Without compression dressings, swelling may persist longer than necessary.
