Fat that is under the chin can be removed using liposuction. The area is identified and numbed with lidocaine. Oral sedatives are given to relax and reduce pain. A canulla is used to suction the fat above the muscle layer. An very small incision is made directly under the chin and behind the ear lobes. The canulla is used to reduce the fatty deposits. After the procedure, a compression bandage is placed onto the patient, which must be worn for 3 days. After the three days, a compression garment should be worn at nights for a period of 10 days.
