What is Chin Liposuction?

Chin liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure involving the removal of excess fat from the chin and neck area using a thin, hollow tube called a cannula. This procedure typically targets a double chin or “turkey neck” through contouring and sculpting the area. In its present form, liposuction has been around for decades.

Candidates for this procedure include those with excess fat below the skin. Some patients considering cervicoplasty (”neck lift”) may see sufficient improvement from chin liposuction, avoiding a more extensive operation.

If neck aging is not due to excess subcutaneous fat, then those patients will not benefit from chin liposuction. Dr. Zubowicz will conduct an extensive consultation to establish whether or not neck liposuction will deliver the desired changes.

Why Choose Liposuction at Thrive Medical Spa?

Liposuction is exceptionally safe when performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Zubowicz. Our approach utilizes negative pressure liposuction, a proven method that prioritizes your safety and minimizes complications compared to more expensive and invasive techniques. Other options, such as laser, ultrasound, or radiofrequency, are available to our patients, but they increase complications and are less effective. When you consult with us about your treatment options, we help educate you on different techniques.
