Double Chin Liposuction
Liposuction of the double chin and liposuction of the neck is very effective. The neck beneath the chin is a concave surface. The “slack” of the excess skin of the neck can be taken up due to the unique concave shape of the neck.
How is liposuction of the neck performed?
The skin in the neck is quite thin. Small diameter cannulas should be used to treat both the deep fat and the superficial fat associated with the skin. One very small incision beneath the chin and possibly two more beneath the angle of the jaw are used for liposuction of the chin. The excess fat is suctioned to define the neck and jaw-line.
What should I expect after double chin or neck liposuction?
It is extremely important to wear a compression garment to help encourage skin reshaping. The garment should be worn day and night for at least a week followed by as much as possible for 3 weeks after surgery.
What kind of anesthesia is used for neck liposuction?
Liposuction in the neck area generally requires very little sedation. It is easy to get very good local anesthesia in this area.
What alternatives are there to liposuction for the double chin?
CoolSculpting is an incredible option for patients with minor issues who would prefer a nonsurgical option
