Benefits of Chin & Cheek Liposuction

Chin and cheek liposuction offers several benefits:

  • Improved Facial Contour: The procedure removes excess fat from the chin and cheek area, enhancing the contour of the face and creating a more defined jawline.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Unlike some cosmetic treatments, the results of chin and cheek liposuction are long-lasting. Once fat cells are removed from a particular area, they do not regenerate.
  • Minimal Scarring: The incisions made during chin and cheek liposuction are very small and typically placed in discrete locations, which means any scarring is virtually unnoticeable.
  • Quick Recovery Time: Recovery from chin and cheek liposuction is generally quick. Most people can return to their normal activities within a week or two.

What Can A Chin & Cheek Liposuction Address?

Chin and cheek liposuction addresses several aesthetic issues related to the lower face and neck region. Here are the key issues that the procedure can help with:

  • Excess Fat: The primary purpose of any liposuction procedure, including chin and cheek liposuction, is to remove excess fat. People with a double chin or chubby cheeks that persist despite diet and exercise can benefit from this procedure.
  • Undefined Jawline: By removing excess fat from the chin and jaw area, liposuction can help to sculpt a more defined and attractive jawline.
  • Facial Balance: Excessive fullness in the chin or cheeks can throw off the balance of the facial features. By reducing this fullness, chin and cheek liposuction can help to create a more proportionate and harmonious facial appearance.
  • Aging Changes: As we age, fat can accumulate in the chin and neck area, leading to the appearance of a double chin or jowls. Liposuction can address these changes, helping to create a more youthful facial appearance.
  • Genetic Predisposition: Some people are genetically predisposed to carry excess fat in the chin and cheek areas. Liposuction can help address this issue, creating a more contoured and less full appearance.

Ideal Candidates for This Procedure

Ideal candidates for chin and cheek liposuction are individuals who:

  • Have Excess Fat in the Chin and Cheek Areas: The primary purpose of this procedure is to remove excess fat in these areas. People who struggle with a double chin or overly full cheeks despite maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine are often good candidates.
  • Have Good Skin Elasticity: It's essential for achieving the best results, as the skin needs to be able to conform to the new contours of the face once the fat is removed. Those with loose or sagging skin might not achieve the best results and may need to consider additional or alternative procedures.
  • Do Not Smoke: Smoking can complicate both the procedure and the healing process, so ideal candidates are either non-smokers or are willing to quit before and after the procedure.
  • Are at a Stable Weight: Significant weight fluctuations after surgery can affect the results of the procedure, so it's recommended that candidates be at a stable weight before undergoing liposuction.


The consultation process with Dr. Truong begins with a comprehensive review of your medical history, followed by a thorough facial examination. He will discuss your aesthetic goals and explain the Chin & Cheek Liposuction procedure in detail. Throughout the process, Dr. Truong prioritizes clear communication and patient comfort, ensuring you feel well-informed and confident in your decision.

Treatment Options

Other treatments that can enhance facial contours include facial fillers, Botox, and non-surgical skin tightening procedures. Dr. Truong will discuss these options during your consultation, helping you choose the best approach based on your unique needs and preferences.

What happens during The Chin & Cheek Liposuction Procedure?

A chin and cheek liposuction, often performed under local or general anesthesia, begins with small incisions made in discreet locations - often inside the mouth or under the chin. Dr. Sony Truong then injects a tumescent solution to minimize bleeding and ease the removal of fat. A small, thin tube called a cannula is introduced through these incisions to suction out the fat. The cannula is carefully moved to break up the fat deposits, which are then removed from the body. This process sculpts the chin and cheek areas, creating a more defined and balanced facial appearance. Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed, and the patient is moved into recovery.


Recovery from Chin & Cheek Liposuction is typically quick, with most patients returning to normal activities within a week. Initial swelling subsides within a few days, and any residual swelling usually disappears within three months.

Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care involves wearing a special compression garment to minimize swelling, taking prescribed medications to manage any discomfort, and following a gentle skincare routine to maintain the health of your skin. Dr. Truong will provide detailed instructions tailored to your specific needs.

Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

Chin and cheek liposuction is a targeted cosmetic procedure that can effectively address several mild to moderate facial concerns, including:

  • Double Chin: This is one of the most common issues addressed by chin liposuction. Even people who are otherwise slim can accumulate excess fat under the chin, leading to a double chin appearance.
  • Excess Facial Fat: Some people naturally carry more fat in their cheeks, leading to a "chubby" facial appearance. Cheek liposuction can help to reduce this excess fat, leading to a more sculpted and refined look.
  • Lack of Definition: By removing excess fat from the chin and cheek areas, liposuction can create a more defined jawline and facial profile.
  • Age-Related Concerns: As we age, fat distribution in our face can change, leading to the development of jowls or a double chin. Liposuction can address these age-related changes, helping to restore a more youthful appearance.
  • Genetic Predisposition: Some individuals are genetically prone to store excess fat in the lower face. Chin and cheek liposuction can help address this predisposition, resulting in a more balanced facial contour.

Other Recommendations

Dermal Fillers

Fillers can be used to add volume to areas of the face that may appear hollow or sunken after liposuction, helping to achieve balanced, natural-looking results.

Skin Tightening Treatments

Procedures like Ultherapy or Thermage can be used after liposuction if there is mild skin laxity. They use ultrasound or radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin.

Facelift or Mini Facelift

If skin laxity is a concern, a facelift or mini facelift could be considered alongside liposuction. These procedures can address sagging skin and provide more dramatic rejuvenation.
