What Is Submental Liposuction?

Submental liposuction surgically removes fat cells from the upper neck to create an improved jawline contour and remove the “double chin.” Dr. Joshua Cox at Cox Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, Texas, performs safe and effective liposuction techniques to loosen, emulsify, and remove unwanted fat deposits. The procedure begins with one small incision in a strategic area to remove the fat precisely and efficiently.

Dr. Cox will then inject a tumescent solution, which is a mixture of saline, a medication that decreases bleeding, and a local anesthetic to decrease postoperative pain. A cannula will then be used to break up the fat deposits for gentle removal. Once the fat has been effectively removed, the remaining fat cells are equalized to ensure excellent contour and symmetry.


Why Get Submental Liposuction?

Do you have a stubborn “double chin” fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise?

Submental liposuction may be able to help! Submental liposuction permanently removes fatty deposits from problem areas of the upper neck to give you a better definition, overall look, and contour of the neck and jawline with only one small unnoticeable scar under the chin. In the hands of Dr. Cox, surgical submental liposuction is reliable and predictable with the majority of submental liposuction patients experiencing an immediate rise in self-esteem and confidence!

The Day of Your Liposuction Procedure

If you are undergoing submental liposuction under general anesthesia, on the day of your liposuction procedure in Dallas, Texas, Dr. Cox will meet you in the preoperative area to go over any last-minute questions or concerns you may have. He will make preoperative markings and will perform extensive checks with careful attention to detail, ensuring high-quality care and safety. You will meet the anesthesiologist and their team, as well as the members of our plastics surgery operative team.

During your surgery, Dr. Cox pays meticulous attention to detail and works to ensure a great result with a focus on safety and quality. Your family will be updated on your status periodically and will be able to talk with Dr. Cox one-on-one after your submental liposuction procedure is completed. The timing of the submental liposuction procedure varies greatly depending on which other procedures are combined with this procedure. Submental liposuction can also be performed under local anesthesia in the office but only on the appropriate candidates. This will be discussed at your consultation.

Recovery after Submental Liposuction

After your submental liposuction procedure, you will have a surgical dressing that covers the small incision as well as a head/neck compression garment. It is normal for you to have some leftover fluid that drains from these areas and the liposuction dressings may require changing or reinforcing the night after your liposuction procedure.

You will be advised to refrain from strenuous activity for two to four weeks during the healing process. You should expect some swelling and bruising for up to a few weeks after the procedure, and mild swelling may remain for months after arm liposuction. It is typically safe for you to go home the day of the procedure.
