Are you disturbed by the excess fat beneath your chin? For some, diet and exercise fails to achieve fat reduction in this area. Fortunately, those stubborn deposits of fat can be easily and safely removed with liposuction.
Chin and neck liposuction is designed for people with specific areas of localized fat deposits that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. It’s ideal for patients with a double chin, “no neck,” or a poorly defined jawline.
With this procedure, both men and women can improve the contour of the chin and neck area with a relatively simple and safe technique.
- Restore a slimmer and younger-looking facial appearance
- Remove unwanted fatty deposits on the neck and beneath the chin
- Create a contoured and well-defined neck and jawline
- Reduce heavy jowls
If you struggle with excess fat in the chin and neck area, or a poorly defined jawline, chin and neck liposuction may be right for you.
To Be Considered An Ideal Candidate For This Procedure, You Should:
- Be close to your ideal weight
- Be a non-smoker and in good health
- Want to enhance and define your jawline
- Have good elasticity and no sagging skin in the treatment area
- Have realistic expectations for what the procedure can accomplish
In performing chin and neck liposuction, the goal is to remove localized pockets of fat in the area, while sculpting a more attractive and contoured neck and jawline. After administering the anesthesia to ensure your comfort, we will create small incisions hidden behind the ear and beneath the chin.
We will then inject a special solution into the fat that’s being removed to numb the area and minimize bleeding. From there, we will remove the excess fat using a cannula, which is a thin tube attached to a suction.
Because this area is small and delicate, we will use an extremely gentle technique and remove a precise amount of fat – just enough to accomplish your goals. To complete the procedure, we will close the incisions and apply a compression garment to support your new contours.
Chin and neck liposuction takes about 30 minutes to complete. You will be free to return home the very same day to begin the healing process, and will need to return to the office within 24 hours so that we can monitor your progress.
Some swelling, bruising and discomfort is to be expected. You’ll need to wear your compression garment regularly to minimize these effects.
Your results should be apparent immediately and will continue to improve as your body heals. In general, swelling and bruising will subside within two weeks. You will be permitted to return to sedentary work within four days and more rigorous exercise within three weeks.
