An Effective Solution to a Stubborn Issue

Submental liposuction, or chin liposuction, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat and sculpt the area under the chin and jawline. This procedure can effectively address a "double chin" or fullness in the submental region, resulting in a more defined and youthful appearance. Submental liposuction is a minimally invasive technique that can significantly improve facial contours and overall aesthetic harmony.

The Submental Liposuction Procedure

During the submental liposuction procedure, Dr. Kim utilizes advanced techniques to remove excess fat from the submental area. The procedure typically involves making small, inconspicuous incisions beneath the chin or behind the ears. Dr. Kim then uses a specialized liposuction cannula to gently remove the targeted fat, sculpting a more refined and harmonious contour to the chin and neck.
