double chin liposuction procedure

A double chin can detract from the natural angles of your face. Even for individuals who are otherwise in good shape, fat deposits can collect beneath the chin and create the impression of a double chin. Liposuction can delicately remove unwanted fat from below the chin and help you appear younger and healthier. Don’t let a double chin detract from your attractive features, liposuction will enhance your jawline and restore symmetry to your face.

About Liposuction

Liposuction is a simple surgical procedure that removes stubborn fat deposits. This procedure can be applied all over the body.

Liposuction treatment areas include the neck, abdomen, thighs, knees, arms, flanks, hips, and back. Lipo surgery will work to slim down these areas by removing fat. Dr. Yoo will artfully sculpt the treatment area and help you achieve a slim, healthy body.

The fat under the chin, also referred to as submental fullness, is very difficult to remove with exercise or healthy eating. This fat can build up and stretch the skin, causing the jawline to appear less sharp and instead appear droopy. A chin fat reduction can be easily be accomplished with liposuction. Dr. Yoo will use a steady hand and keen eyesight to shape the jaw and neckline. You will be impressed by how much a double chin removal treatment will impact the way you appear!

Tumescent Power-Assisted Liposuction

Dr. Yoo specializes in a particular form of liposuction called tumescent power assisted lipo. This technique allows Dr. Yoo to remove fat seamlessly and accentuate your natural features. There are a lot of new techniques available in liposuction today but Dr. Yoo implements the tumescent power assisted technique because it has been tested for many years and has proven to effectively improve patient’s bodies in a safe, healthy way.

Tumescent fluid is a revolutionary technique that allows liposuction to be executed quickly and efficiently. This fluid is comprised of saline and anesthesia. These two components help to swell and numb the treatment area. Fat cells are better exposed and overall bleeding is much less than with traditional liposuction methods. These benefits will transfer to your recovery and allow it to be quicker and more comfortable. Dr. Yoo chooses to use tumescent fluid alongside power assisted liposuction because the method brings about better results.

Power-assisted liposuction implements small vibrations to break apart fat cells. Tumescent fluid allows the fat cells to be better exposed to the small vibrations. Once the fat cells are gently detached from surrounding tissues, they will be removed with a thin cannula.


double chin liposuction benefits

Liposuction produces immediate results! We strive to produce beautiful results and healthy procedures for each of our patients. With liposuction, you don’t have a very long recovery period before you can show off to our friends. Although liposuction is a surgical process, it is not as invasive as most surgery. Liposuction only penetrates to the fat layer below the skin. This allows your recovery time to be much shorter than an invasive technique.

One thing we love about liposuction is that it lowers your overall fat count. When we reach adulthood, our bodies have a specific number of fat cells. This number will not change throughout our life. The fat cells can change in size but they will not go away. Liposuction actually removes fat cells, which in turn helps to keep your results around for a long time.

Personal Consultation

double chin liposuction consultation

A private meeting with Dr. Yoo will allow you to ask questions, learn about the details of lipo surgery and voice any concerns you have.

Dr. Yoo will listen to you carefully and make sure you understand what liposuction is and how it will impact you.

This meeting also gives Dr. Yoo a chance to meet you and learn about your medical history, current health and what your aesthetic goals are.


Prior to your appointment, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you have a healthy procedure and recovery. Arrange for rides to and from the appointment. Ask a friend or family member to stay over with you while you adjust to moving around and eating after surgery. We also encourage you to pick out an area of your home where you can rest on your own. Make sure this area has plenty of pillows, entertainment and a water bottle nearby.

The most important instructions to follow are the ones Dr. Yoo provides. Follow his instructions and feel free to call us with any questions or concerns.


When you arrive to your appointment, you will change into a gown. The surgical team will clean and mark the area beneath your chin. General anesthesia is often used alongside minimal sedation to make the procedure comfortable.

Once you are resting, Dr. Yoo will begin the surgery. Tumescent fluid will be administered to the treatment area. Small vibrations will be used to break up fat cells and make them more accessible. A small cannula will then be used to suction out available fat.

Once Dr. Yoo has artfully sculpted the face, he will close incisions. You will be taken to a recovery room where you will be monitored by specially trained staff until you wake up.


Following your treatment, your incision sites and chin area will be swollen. A compression garment will need to be worn to help your chin take on its new shape. The garment will also help to minimize swelling after surgery.

Keep your head elevated and go on short walks to improve blood circulation. The best way to have a healthy recovery is to drink lots of water and get plenty of rest. Many patients are able to return to work after a week.


The outcome of your surgery will be noticeable right away and final results will set in once the swelling has diminished. We produce results you can be proud of! The best way to keep your jawline firm and your neck shapely, is to eat healthy and live an active lifestyle.
