Alberto Arevalo Plastic Surgeon

This is the name given to the reduction of abnormal fat deposits in the submental or neck region.

This is the name given to the reduction of abnormal fat deposits in the neck, under the chin.

This procedure consists of suctioning the abnormal fatty tissue in the neck region, under the chin, which makes the face look rounded and gives the person the impression of being overweight or older.

This submental lipolysis or jowl lipolysis can be performed at any age, starting at 18 years old.

It is performed by making a small incision (2 mm) in the skin fold under the chin, and introducing a small tube or cannula to aspirate the excess fat in that area. It may or may not be accompanied by the concomitant use of laser or internal ultrasound (i.e. vaser). Along with bichectomy (i.e. surgery to reduce the cheeks), it is the star procedure to adequately define facial angles or contours.

Disability is minimal and usually involves swelling of the neck area, as would occur with any dental extraction. This swelling can last from 3 days to a week. During the first few days, local application of cold can significantly reduce the swelling.

It is not a surgery associated with the presence of hematomas, as occurs with other facial surgeries, and it is minimally painful.

As in other surgeries, the final results, to evaluate the benefits of the procedure, can be appreciated from the 4th week after the surgery.
