If you find yourself sticking your tongue on the roof of your mouth, trying to take selfies from higher angles, or even insisting friends delete unflattering pictures, chances are you're suffering from a double chin. Although numerous procedures are available to treat this issue, chin liposuction has proven to be the most effective. This procedure creates a balanced definition of the jawline. We welcome you to contact Pearce Plastic Surgery in Austin, TX and schedule your consultation with Dr. Paul Pearce to learn more about your cosmetic surgery options.
What Is Chin Liposuction?
Dr. Pearce offers chin liposuction, a minimally invasive procedure that effectively improves chin and jawline definition. A specialized hollow tube removes fat from the chin and neck region, reducing bulk to unveil a more chiseled and well-defined profile.
Who is a Good Candidate for Chin Liposuction?
Patients with fullness beneath the chin and along the sides of the neck are good candidates for chin liposuction. Those in their 20s and 30s typically respond well to chin liposuction without skin tightening, while those in their 40s to 50s might require skin tightening based on their level of skin laxity. Dr. Pearce has found that patients ages 50 and older may be better candidates for a neck lift as chin liposuction alone may not provide optimal results due to sagging neck muscles.
How Is Chin Liposuction Performed?
Chin liposuction can be performed either under general anesthesia in an operating room or local anesthesia in an office setting. Dr. Pearce begins by creating small incisions to insert a hollow tube into targeted areas of your chin and neck. Gentle suctioning off of fat then helps create your desired look. The incisions will be closed using small stitches, and a compression garment will be placed to reduce swelling. Chin liposuction often results in a smooth and even profile with less fat below the chin.
What Can I Expect during Recovery after Chin Liposuction?
During the initial two weeks after surgery, refrain from intense physical activities. Patients can gradually reintroduce light exercises and return to regular activities by week four or five. Dr. Pearce will provide a supportive compression garment following your chin liposuction procedure, which must be worn continuously for 5 - 10 days. The garment must then be worn at home or during sleep for the next seven days.
Redefine Your Profile
Chin liposuction creates harmony and a balanced definition, redefining your facial appearance. If you feel displeased with the appearance of your jawline, chin liposuction can create the look you wish for. We welcome you to contact Pearce Plastic Surgery in Austin, TX and schedule your consultation with Dr. Paul Pearce to learn more about your cosmetic surgery options.

After a major weight loss and a few uncomfortable consultations, I decided to look outside the San Antonio area to have a tummy tuck and an arm lift. Dr Pearce was my first consultant after expanding my search. When I walked in his office, I was greeted with the biggest smiles. After meeting Dr Pearce, I knew I found my surgeon!! I’m a year post op and feel amazing! Dr Pearce is a perfectionist!! I’ve recommended him to a couple people!
10/10 recommend - I severed a tendon in a kitchen accident and I am on my way to 100% recovery! Excellent care
My appointment was awesome !
I went to Dr. Pearce for a breast augmentation. He is transparent, kind, and funny. Him and his crew made me feel comfortable and welcome considering this was my first time having a procedure like this done. My surgery went smooth and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.

Chin Liposuction FAQs
What is the cost of chin liposuction?
The price may vary depending on whether the procedure is performed in the office or the operating room. Please fill out our contact form to schedule a consultation and get an accurate price for chin liposuction.
What determines if a patient can have chin liposuction in the office or operating room?
Safety is the primary focus of your procedure. Dr. Pearce will consider your medical history and discuss your comfort level with awake in-office liposuction or being under general anesthesia in the operating room before making a recommendation.
Where are the incisions for chin and neck liposuction placed?
Dr. Pearce places one incision behind each ear and one under the chin, using a special scalpel that creates a tiny circular hole exactly 2.5 mm in size. Once sutured, these incisions promote superior healing, resulting in a blended appearance similar to a skin blemish.
When can I expect to see the final results of my chin liposuction?
Patients can expect final results about six months after the procedure, with about 90 percent of results visible 3 to 4 months following surgery.
