About Neck Liposuction
Tumescent liposuction of the neck and jowl areas (Submental Lipectomy) is a safe and effective method to significantly improve the facial appearance. Excess fat in the chin and neck areas, sometimes called “double chin”, can cause a person to appear to be chubby.
Elimination of the fat bulges through the use of neck and chin liposuction can increase someone’s motivation for further improvement in other areas of the body. This may cause a renewed determination for implementation of proper diet and exercise.
Liposuction of the neck and chin is ideal for a person who has good skin elasticity. In rather severe cases, older patients that have excess skin may benefit from liposuction of the neck in conjunction with a neck lift.
Neck and chin liposuction is done through a tiny incision under the chin. Liposuction is not a cure for obesity, rather it is an effective procedure for eliminating “that bulge”.
As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. As with any surgery, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you.
