Classical beauty is espoused with various clichés: fresh faced, perky, square jawed. While aesthetics are often in the eye of the beholder, there are many cosmetic ideals that stand the test of time. When the neck loses its definition, its cervicomental angle shifts. Put simply, the throat looks more bulbous than taut. To replenish the sharp contours of a youthful neck, submental liposuction is a great option.
Submental Liposuction Alone
To achieve the optimal mandibular border (a strong jawline), your surgeon will begin by making a careful incision under the chin. Through this incision, the doctor will insert a thin tube called a cannula. The cannula delivers a soothing bath of tumescent fluid to the unwanted fat around your neck and jowls. Once the fat is sufficiently loosened, the cannula vacuums it away, contouring your features as it goes. The submental liposuction procedure is great for people with healthy skin elasticity. Your neck can resume its ideal shape once the unwanted fat cells are removed.
Submental Liposuction with a Lift
If you struggle with skin laxity, then liposuction alone may not be sufficient. After your unwanted fat is removed, the surrounding skin may hang loose. To address a sagging neck, you may want to consider a facelift with Esthetica. Your surgeon will not only contour the natural definition of your youthful expression, but also remove any excess skin that obscures your good looks. The result is a sculpted, toned new you!
Submental Liposuction with Facial Implants
While Esthetica excels at removing unwanted fat and skin, it can also augment your appearance with subtlety and precision. Facial implants are a great supplement to submental liposuction. A chin augmentation, for example, can provide the submental skin with a tautness that fills out your face and provides a balanced profile and defined jawline.
Regardless of the specific approach you may desire to craft your look, Esthetica can help.
Our Orange County staff can address your questions and concerns regarding the profile you wish to attain. To begin your aesthetic journey toward improvement and excellence, contact us at your earliest convenience.
Benefits of Submental Liposuction
In addition to looking great, neck contouring can also make you feel great! By slimming and trimming your submental region, Esthetica will unleash a confidence you may never knew you had. Other benefits of strategic liposuction include:
- A strong, sleek profile
- Comfort and improved range of motion
- Better fitting shirts, ties, and jewelry
- Compliments from your loved ones
Am I a Liposuction Candidate?
An eligible patient is a healthy individual who is dissatisfied with the shape or size of their neck. Residents and visitors to the Newport Beach area can find support and solutions at Esthetica Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
If you are tired of endless hours on the treadmill that go nowhere, then liposuction may be perfect for you.
Diet and exercise are a great way to maintain health and happiness, but they may fail to target the stubborn fat around your jowls, chin, and neck. The best way to determine if you are an ideal candidate for submental liposuction is to schedule an individualized consultation with our knowledgeable staff.

Preparation for Submental Contouring
During the consultation period, Esthetica will provide you with a detailed list of instructions regarding your upcoming liposuction procedure. These directions will be tailored to you, so please follow them carefully.
In general, we discourage our patients from using any tobacco products. Nicotine is detrimental to healing and wellness, so please quit smoking at least two weeks before your procedure. You may also be advised to stop taking aspirin and other blood-thinning supplements.
The Esthetica team wants you to realize your aesthetic goals. To help you along the way, we will assign two patient consultants to your case. If you have any questions or concerns at any point during the preparation process, please lean on your representatives. That’s what they’re here for!
You should also arrange for a loved one to transport you to and from our Newport Beach location on the day of your procedure. They may also need to monitor your progress in the 24 hours following surgery, so please inform them of their vital role in your recovery.
The Submental Liposuction Procedure
When you arrive at our Orange County clinic, your comfort is our primary goal. The doctor dedicated to your procedure will meet with you to discuss any last-minute questions you may have. You will also get a chance to meet the support staff: your anesthesiologists, nurses, and technicians who will be facilitating the fine details of your submental liposuction needs.
The specific details of your procedure will depend on the parameters laid out during the consultation period.
Whether you are receiving liposuction alone, or in combination with facial implants and/or a lift, we will explain all the details relevant to your surgery well ahead of time.
Once you emerge from your anesthesia, any post-operative instructions will be provided to your caregiver to ensure a safe, supportive transition to the recovery phase of your aesthetic journey.
Here’s to a Speedy Recovery
Your Esthetica support staff will fit you for the proper compression garments to cradle your submental area. These garments are designed to minimize discomfort in the 48 hours following your surgery. Please avoid strenuous activity and plan to return to Esthetica 2 days after your procedure.
After three weeks, you may be able to resume your normal activities (exercise, work, etc.). If you have any questions or concerns, we are available to chat. Call (949) 721-1113 to contact a trained professional at any point during your recovery period.
You will notice your amazing results over the course of several fabulous phases. First, the fat beneath your chin and around your jowls will be reduced immediately. Next, your swelling will subside as the tumescent fluid used during the liposuction procedure dissipates. Finally, your neck will adapt to its new contours and reflect the strong, sleek silhouette you have always envisioned.
Once you enjoy the benefits of a submental liposuction procedure from Esthetica, you may want to consider other facial enhancements. To attain a naturally balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance, a rhinoplasty (nose job) may be the ideal solution.
Or if your concerns revolve around “problem areas” below the neck, then Esthetica offers a myriad of liposuction options. You can eradicate fat rolls, bulky thighs, or unflattering flanks with the help of a skilled Esthetica surgeon. Your best self awaits!
Every procedure is as unique as every patient. To discuss pricing, scheduling, and other practical concerns, please contact Esthetica.
