Submental liposuction is an adjunctive surgical procedure that allows for the relatively predictable soft tissue recontouring of the cervicofacial region (Figs. 13 to 17). It may be performed independently as an outpatient procedure under intravenous sedation or as an adjunctive procedure during orthognathic surgery. Surgical complications are rare and are usually preventable with appropriate patient selection and surgical technique. Submental liposuction is a useful tool for enhancing the esthetic benefits of orthognathic surgery.
