Chin And Neck Liposuction
In facial plastic surgery, we specialize in liposuction of the cervico-mental area–the neck and area under the chin. Facial liposuction can also be performed with care in some patients. Small incisions are made below the chin and behind the ears, then liposuction cannulas are introduced in order to re-contour the desired areas.
Two of the defining features of a youthful face are a well-defined jawline and a pleasing angle where the neck and chin meet. Chin and neck fullness, or a poorly defined jaw line, can create the illusion of excess weight or premature aging.
If you are not pleased with the loss of definition in your jawline, chin or neck, liposuction may improve the appearance of these areas. This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure best suited if you have excess fatty tissue of the neck but minimal excess neck skin. Through three small, well-concealed incisions, the fatty tissue is removed by use of a specialized suction device.
Neck Liposuction Before & Afters
Neck Liposuction Recovery
The recovery from a chin and neck liposuction is usually under two weeks, with some mild bruising and swelling of the area. Some skin or soft tissue irregularities can occur, but these tend to disappear in a few weeks. Numbness of the operated area also is temporary.
The operation is often done under local anaesthesia as an outpatient, but can be done under general anaesthesia if desired.
