One of the first things that people notice about an individual is their neck and jaw area. A double chin, fat pockets, or jowls can adversely impact a person’s appearance, making them appear old and tired.
Over time, fatty pockets can develop in the chin, neck, and lower face. It is difficult to eliminate or reduce these fat deposits with diet and exercise. Weight loss also does not have a significant impact on these areas. Chin and neck liposuction cosmetic surgery can greatly enhance a person’s feelings of youth and confidence.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides liposuction of the chin, neck and jawline to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
Chin and Neck Liposuction for Double Chin Removal
Regardless of age, a double chin can adversely impact the appearance of an otherwise appealing face. The skin may sag, and fat can accumulate under the chin and in the front of the neck. This causes the appearance of fullness under the chin, commonly known as a “double chin.”
Liposuction plastic surgery can eliminate the fat causing the double chin. In this procedure, the surgeon will insert a thin tube, known as a cannula, into the fatty area.
They will disintegrate and remove the fat. The skin may contract and tighten by itself if it has sufficient elasticity. Otherwise, the patient may require a neck lift procedure to tighten the neck skin.
Chin and neck liposuction can be undertaken using a local anesthetic. The recovery period is brief, and most patients can resume their routine activities within a few days.
Chin and Neck Liposuction for Men and Women
Both men and women may consider liposuction of the chin and neck. The accumulation of fat in the lower face causes the development of jowls or a double chin, and this can age the entire face.
Chin and neck liposuction can effectively reduce the excess fat under chin, jowls, and neck. This lifts the entire face and restores the youthful appearance that an individual once had.
This procedure enhances the jawline enabling the facial features to appear more appealing and balanced.
How is Liposuction Performed?
At the outset of the procedure, the plastic surgeon or surgical nurse will prepare the patient’s chin and neck by sterilizing and draping the site. The surgeon will then use a pen to mark the treatment area.
The patient will then receive either local or sedation anesthesia. A local anesthetic may be used when liposuction is undertaken on smaller areas, such as the chin and neck. The patient and surgeon will discuss the most suitable anesthesia type in advance of the surgery. The patient may also be given a sedative at this point.
Now the surgeon will place a tiny incision and insert a thin tube (known as the cannula) attached to a suction tube into the fat layer in the treatment site.
They will “vacuum” the excess fat from the targeted sites with this suction procedure. The time taken for the procedure depends on the number of treatment sites and the amount of fat to be eliminated.
Safety of Chin and Neck Liposuction
Liposuction-related complications are more likely to occur when a large surface area of the body is being treated, or when a substantial amount of fat is eliminated during one surgical procedure. The risks associated with liposuction are generally reduced in the treatment of smaller areas. For this reason, chin and neck liposuction is quite safe.
