The neck area, especially under the chin, tends to be a very common area of concern due to excess fatty tissue in this area. Neck liposuction can be performed quickly and easily to address this problem. This procedure is often performed as a stand-alone procedure, but can also easily be performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures such as face or neck lifting procedures.
Liposuction is performed using specialized instruments called cannulas that are designed to remove fatty tissue without affecting the other normal surrounding tissues. Very small incisions are hidden under the chin or behind the ears in order to allow access to the fatty tissue under the skin. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or under deep sedation, depending on patient preference.
The shape and appearance of the neck is also affected by the size and shape of the chin. Sometimes chin augmentation can make a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the jawline and neckline, especially when performed at the same time as neck liposuction.
