Whether it is something you have always had, or something that you recently acquired, I understand the concern with fullness or excess fat under the chin. I typically hear that it is something that “runs in the family”. Fortunately there are a number of options available which may be performed individually or along with another procedure – such as a neck lift. Keep in mind that the following procedures will address the excess fat, but if there is excess skin you may need a skin tightening procedure as well. A consultation with me will help to determine the best step forward.

1. Neck lift – If excess skin is present, a neck lift provides removal of excess skin, often performed in combination with liposuction, to provide the most dramatic improvement in neck line and submental appearance.

2. Liposuction – by using very small incisions (less than a centimeter), small canulas can permanently remove fat cells that have built up in that area. This can be combined with muscle tightening for more dramatic results.

3. Non-surgical options – Options like Radiofrequency Skin Tightening or Kybella may be options in select cases. Results vary by patient.
