Chin liposuction removes excess chin fat and is a minimally invasive procedure that does not cause scarring.
Chin liposuction will enhance your jawline, minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and improve your profile.

Chin Lipo Procedure
Chin liposuction is a short procedure that is non-invasive. It is both safe and effective, making it a great option for patients.
Chin liposuction begins by making one small incision under the chin. The incision is made in a natural crease that normally is present between the chin and the neck. This makes it unnoticeable after recovery. Afterward, different sized liposuction cannulas (small tubes) are inserted into the neck. Using gentle suction, fat cells are strategically removed from the neck.
The procedure will only take one or two hours and will be entirely painless. There is very little risk involved with this procedure; at worst minor bleeding, bruising, or discomfort may occur. Dr. Dominic performs this procedure routinely, so you can trust you’re in good hands.
Recovery from chin liposuction usually takes from 1-3 days. Some patients feel well enough to return to work the day after the procedure. The discomfort associated with the procedure is minimal, and anesthesia minimizes your discomfort. Swelling can be minimal and bruising is variable depending upon each patient (if someone is taking Aspirin or herbals that increase chances of bruising). However, most patients are back to the gym within 2-3 days.
Chin Liposuction Aftercare
For the first 24-36 hours following chin liposuction, we recommend that you continue to wear a wrap or chin strap to help minimize swelling. Additional aftercare recommendations will include:
- Eating a healthy diet and avoiding carbohydrates and sodium for the first 24 hours
- Wear the elastic chin strap when you sleep for 3-5 days post-op
You will begin to see results even during the recovery period. The suture will dissolve the first week to 10 days. As the swelling and bruising subside, your newly enhanced jawline will emerge, and your double chin will be in your past. The good news is that once fat cells are removed, they do not return.

Chin Liposuction vs. Neck Lift
Chin liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes to perform, has very little downtime, and provides you with dramatic results. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia or IV sedation to minimize pain and discomfort. General anesthesia (breathing tube) is not required.Chin liposuction will remove excess fat from the chin area and can improve the look of sagging and wrinkled skin in the area.
A neck lift will remove excess fat similar to liposuction by the muscle below the skin is tightened and in some cases involves removing excess skin. A neck lift is appropriate for someone with neck skin that has lost elasticity and with laxity of neck muscles. The procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours and is performed under either IV sedation or general anesthesia.
While many patients may be under the impression that the best surgery for them is chin liposuction, it could be true that a neck lift would be more effective. While chin liposuction does remove fat cells from the neck, it does not address the muscle or sagging/wrinkled skin.
This is the most comprehensive way to address your facial cosmetic issues. However, if you are only looking to receive one surgery, then it is important to weigh your options and speak with Dr. Dominic about your best course of action.
