One of the more common aesthetic procedures in young patients to improve or restore a more youthful appearance to the face is submental liposuction. There are plenty of people who tend to store fat in the area beneath there chin or submental region. Often the fat in this region of the body is the last place for fat to be lost when people are training, dieting, or trying to become leaner. These “resistant” areas often yield excellent results for surgical liposuction. In order for liposuction to be most effective, patients should have localized deposits of fat and the skin around the fat should have had minimal sun exposure or not have lost its elasticity. Once the fat is surgically removed, it is helpful if the skin around the fat can contract.
