--> Chin Liposuction - Cosmetic Surgery Orange County | Image Plastic Surgery by Dr. Peter Newen MD

Chin liposuction is most frequently sought by those who have an amount of fat in the area beneath their chin and hanging below the jaw, a condition sometimes referred to as “double chin.” A plastic surgeon uses a tube called a cannula to suction out the unwanted fat. The incisions used for this procedure are relatively small, and only local anesthesia is needed. After surgery and healing time, patients see a firmer appearance in their profiles, with tighter-looking skin under the neck.
