The submentoplasty is a surgery that rejuvenates the look of face and neck. For this we combine a neck liposuction, that eliminates the excess fat under the chin (double chin), treating the neck muscles, eliminating the skin that hangs under the jaw and rejuvenates the face.
If, after some time you notice that you get a double chin or excess skin that makes you feel self-conscious, then you are a good candidate for one of these procedures or a combination of them for the neckline that are minimally invasive. The results are highly gratifying as you can see in the before and after pictures shown below.
The submentoplasty and neck liposuction will redefine the chin and jaw.
The neck liposuction eliminates the “double chin” that comes with age and brings back the juvenile outline of the jawline. The submentoplasty eliminates the prominent muscular bands of the neck and the fat tissue under the jaw. Both interventions also allow to tighten the loose skin from the neck and improve the outline.
Clínica Sanza in Barcelona is a center of reference in neck and face surgery.
WHERE DO WE OPERATE?
At Clínica Sanza we rely on the Sagrat Cor Hospital, part of the Quirónsalud group, to perform our surgical procedures.
Its prestige, facilities, medical and healthcare staff, as well as its technology are a guarantee.
Men and women that have a fat neck (double chin) or very flaccid skin, that want to rejuvenate the look of their face.
More frequently in men that shaving is uncomfortable for or is hard on them and want to emphasize the jaw outline and the Adam’s apple.
Women that want a more terse and firm neck, meaning elegant and clean.
A small incision is done adjacent to the natural fold under the jaw. The skin under the chin is raised to eliminate any excess fatty tissue in that area.
Any muscular band prominent under the chin will be placed back to a juvenile middle line.
The incisions are closed in layers with dissolvable sutures.
