Face and neck liposuction can help
Patients commonly come to us to address the sagging skin around their neck, reduce a double chin, or to refine their jaw or neckline. Liposuction of the face and neck works the same way as liposuction in other areas of the body—by removing excess fat from the intended area. Also known as facial contouring or neck contouring, liposuction can create a more youthful appearance by restoring fullness and smoothness to the face and neck.
In general, patients seeking liposuction of the face and neck are looking to address one or more of the following:
- Sagging skin of the neck (“turkey neck”)
- Reduction or elimination of double chin or fullness underneath chin
- More refined jawline and/or neckline, which helps balance facial features
Most patients only need local anesthesia for liposuction of the face and neck. The procedure will start with numbing the treatment area. Then your surgeon will make one or two small incisions and insert a thin tube. The tube will remove excess fat as your surgeon sculpts a natural contour of your face and neck. Once the surgical sites have been sutured, you will be bandaged and fitted with a special chin strap. This device will offer additional support while you heal.
Most patients return to work about a week after their procedure.
