Outpatient procedure performed in our AAAHC accredited surgery center under local anesthetic.
Takes about thirty minutes.
A tiny incision is made under the chin, and a cannula attached to a suction device is inserted. The unwanted fat is loosened with a local anesthetic solution and by moving the cannula back and forth, and then is suctioned from the area.
No drains are used.
A light dressing and a gentle compression garment are then applied over the incision area.
