Submental liposculpture is performed in Dr William Mooney’s clinic or in a hospital setting as a standalone procedure or as a part of other surgical procedures.
Dr Mooney will begin the procedure by infusing adrenalin and local anaesthetic to decrease bruising and bleeding during the procedure. Usually, one entry port underneath the chin, 2mm across is sufficient for access. Sometimes, ports may be required behind each ear for an extensive reduction.
The fat is broken down and sucked out until we have achieved a pleasing contour.
The procedure can take about one hour and can cause minor bruising and swelling, this resolves in a couple of days.
Submental liposculpture should only performed by a dedicated surgeon because the neck is a super highway of structure that need to be avoided during this procedure.
