Dr. Sahar Nadimi explains how neck liposuction can help patients eliminate unwanted pockets of fat underneath the chin when exercise and diet do not help. The procedure is simple and is usually combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures to achieve a more balanced appearance. Her compassionate and caring nature allows patients to feel comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Unwanted fat underneath the chin is a common complaint and a lot of times, this doesn't improve with exercise or weight loss. And for some patients, this is a genetic trait that they've had their entire life. Submental liposuction is a quick and easy procedure that can address the fat underneath the chin. It's a small incision underneath the chin and behind each earlobe. And oftentimes, we do it with a facelift or a neck lift, but in the right candidate, it can be done as a standalone procedure.
