Submentoplasty

English subtitled video

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.
