Possibly, depends: I am not exactly sure which area you are referring to as it is uncommon to perform liposuction on the chin. However it is very common to perform liposuction on the area below the chin and the neck. I hope this helps answer your question.

Liposuction: Cervical liposuction can remove excess fatty tissue from the neck. There are additional procedures which may help too. Seek an evaluation from a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Below the chin, yes: If your skin is relatively smooth and firm, but you have an accumulation of excess fatty deposits beneath your chin and/or along the jawline, liposuction may be all that you need to restore a smooth, defined, contour in this area.

A 27-year-old female asked:
Read abt Kybella to help with sub-chin flab. How does it work and how long for results to show? Cost? Side effects? How does it compare to smart lipo?

Plastic surgeon: Deoxycholic acid, under the trade name Kybella, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for reducing moderate-to-severe fat below the chin. When injected into submental fat, deoxycholic acid helps destroy fat cells. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Cost is $1-2,000. Not covered by insurance
