In this study, thirty patients underwent concomitant submental tumescent liposuction and fat augmentation with the FAMI (fat autograft muscle injection) technique in order to assess short-term results and complications associated with these two relatively noninvasive procedures.
All patients had improvement in the cervicomental border, a smoother mandibular border, and a more proportioned chin following 3-5 days of swelling. Patients followed for 6 months to one year had long term retention of fat. There were no significant complications.
In this preliminary series, submental tumescent liposuction with FAMI provided enhanced aesthetic results with little downtime and minimal complications
