Excessive fat and sagging skin in the neck and chin areas can be found in men and women, and is more common with age. While some fat is normally found under the skin, larger than normal amounts can be cosmetically unappealing. Are you concerned about the way your chin and neck look in photos? Are you increasingly self-conscious about a double chin, jowls or the dreaded "turkey neck"? Laser-assisted neck and chin liposuction (Smartlipo) may be an excellent treatment option for you.
This procedure involves carefully determining the treatment areas to optimize results. In general, portions of the upper neck, areas under the jaw and chin, and the jawline itself (jowls) can all be treated. Your optimal treatment areas will be determined during your consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeron. Should you decide to under go neck and chin liposuction, the treatment areas are marked and photographed just prior to starting the procedure which is done under local tumescent anesthesia supplemented with prescription strength oral medication. One or more tiny access sites are utilized to laser and carefully remove the troublesome fat. One key benefit of the Smartlipo technique is reduced tissue damage, less bruising and swelling, and the potential for skin and soft tissue tightening.
Once the final shape and contour is achieved, small dressings and a compression garment are applied. After a brief recovery, patients undergoing neck and chin liposuctin are released to home, with a return visit in one to two days. Resumption of most daily activities occurs in one to two days, with a return to work in two to three days.
Improved contour changes can be noted in just a few days after the procedure, and tissue tightening can continue for up to several months. All in all, Smartlipo of the chin and neck is an attractive option for safely and predictably improving those areas without significant downtime or the risks of more invasive treatments.
