Will Neck Liposuction Help Me Look Slimmer?
Do you have a double chin or sagging jowls that simply will not go away no matter how much weight you lose? Neck liposuction can help remove the unsightly double chin and give your jawline a more contoured appearance that can make you appear slimmer and more shapely.
If you have a double chin that you simply cannot get rid of, and you want to look slimmer, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio M. Sosa at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery in West Bloomfield, MI. Dr. Sosa will meet with you to discuss your goals and determine if neck liposuction is the right choice for your needs.
All about neck liposuction
Neck liposuction removes fat on the neck to diminish the appearance of a double chin and jowls. The liposuction procedure can give you a chiseled jawline. It effectively removes areas of fat, small lumps, and dense areas on the neckline to achieve a slimmer appearance. Many people in their 20s and 30s who have lost weight but simply cannot get rid of their double chin fat can opt to have neck liposuction to create a chiseled profile.
If you have fat on your neck or jawline, then neck liposuction can give you a slimmer appearance by removing pockets of fat. As long as you maintain your weight and live a healthy lifestyle following liposuction, the body contouring results can last for a long time. If you also have sagging skin on your neck, you might want to couple neck liposuction with a neck lift to help achieve a slimmer neckline that is also tight and more youthful looking.
Neck liposuction procedure
A small cannula is inserted through a tiny incision under the chin. Depending on your needs, Dr. Sosa may use a tumescent or super-wet technique that involves the injection of a numbing solution combined with another medication to reduce bleeding. The cannula is worked through the neck area to extract the unwanted fat cells. Following neck liposuction, the incision is closed. The small incisions and scarring are usually minimal and barely noticeable.
Many patients opt to combine neck liposuction in combination with a facelift, neck lift, or some other cosmetic procedure to create even greater results.
Recovery after neck liposuction
Neck liposuction surgery is an outpatient procedure. You’ll probably need to wear a compression garment, such as a chin strap, for a few days. Most patients will experience some bruising and swelling. Abstain from putting pressure on the neck following surgery for a few days. You can usually return to work and normal life activities within a few days. Most people who undergo neck liposuction start to notice visible and dramatic results within a few months following neck liposuction.
