Chin, Jowls & Neck Lipo
Perfect your facial profile with a sleek, new jawline
People of all ages can be affected by excess flesh in the chin, jowls, and neck. Weight gain is an obvious factor, but age also contributes to the dreaded double chin, sagging jowls, and neck rolls we all want to avoid. There are no double chin exercises, but with jowls, neck, and chin lipo, you can get rid of a double chin, enhance your jaw line, and achieve the perfect profile.
Both men and women can benefit from chin, jowl, and neck liposculpture. lipo of the chin, jowls, and neck removes excess fat, tightens the skin, and restores the clean, smooth, defined jawline you had in your youth. lipo of the jowls, chin, and neck produces noticeable results, making you appear younger and slimmer at first glance.
Having a lipo surgeon eliminate your chin, jowl, and neck fat tissue with liposculpture is much easier and safer than undergoing traditional liposuction. The process is simple:
- You are given a local anesthetic to numb the area.
- Your liposculpture surgeon uses a laser to gently melt the fat directly under the skin and to encourage skin tightening.
- Your surgeon then places small incisions to begin the suctioning process with a cannula, which is only about 3mm wide.
- Your lipo surgeon uses slow, gentle movements to remove the fat, meaning limited pain, fewer bruises, and a rapid recovery for you.
The entire tumescent liposculpture procedure usually lasts only an hour and acts to reduce fat and tighten skin. lipo patients need only light sedation, and most patients are back at work in one or two days.
- lipo is permanent. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they do not grow back.
- lipo produces noticeable results, leaving you with a sculpted, contoured, and slimmer jaw line.
Chin, Jowls & Neck Lipo Before and After Photos
Why choose chin, jowls, and neck lipo? Is it for men or women?
Both men and women benefit from chin, jowls, and neck liposuction. Chin and jowl lipo gives you a more defined jawline and an improved facial profile. Neck lipo targets lax skin and neck wrinkles, eliminating or reducing neck rolls and also improving your profile. Jowl, neck, and chin lipo patients see visible, definite results. With lipo, recovery is quick and post-op bruising and pain is minimal. Results are permanent, so you never have to worry about that jawline again.
What is chin, jowls, and neck lipo like?
Liposculpture is usually performed in an office or clinic setting under local anesthesia. Patients remain awake and alert during the entire procedure. First, the surgeon numbs the skin and places small incisions in the area. Using gentle suction, excess fat is removed with a small vibrating cannula, or straw-like instrument. The cannula is only 3mm-about the size of a cooked spaghetti noodle-and leaves no unsightly scars. The procedure lasts for about one hour, and patients walk out of the office with their new, youthful jawlines.
Am I a good candidate for chin, jowls, and neck lipo?
lipo of the chin, jowls, and neck is a safe procedure for most men and women who have a double chin or loose, sagging skin and excess fat in the chin, neck, or cheeks. Anyone who is over the age of 60 might need to take extra precautions and might want to consider further skin-tightening procedures for loose skin. A consultation with the lipo doctor can help address these issues.
Can chin, jowls, and neck lipo be combined with other procedures?
Certainly. Tumescent liposuction of the chin, jowls, and neck can be performed concurrently with any other lipo procedure so that you can customize and perfect your problem areas. Of course, not all patients need lipo on other areas, so your surgeon can target the chin, jowls, and neck area alone if you prefer.
Will I have any scars or sagging skin after chin, jowls, and neck lipo?
Tumescent lipo of the chin, jowls, and neck leaves only a couple of small incision sites, each only about 3mm wide. The puncture sites naturally close within a day or two, fading into the natural color of the surrounding skin. Scarring does not usually occur.
lipo is designed to promote skin tightening and to restore collagen. Anyone under the age of 60 with good skin tone will generally not have sagging skin and will instead see an improvement in skin tone and firmness. lipo is specifically designed to promote skin tightening as the fat is removed. However, older patients or those who have experienced dramatic weight loss may still experience sagging or lax skin.
What are the post-op procedures for chin, jowls, and neck lipo?
Patients generally experience only mild discomfort after the procedure. You can walk immediately afterward, enjoy light to medium activities, and return to work in a day or two. A compression garment similar to a headband is worn for 72 hours. You can wash and shave your face normally after the first 24 hours.
Some patients might experience swelling for a week or more after the procedure. While it does take a while for the swelling to subside, there is minimal to no pain involved. With lipo of the chin, jowls, and neck, there are no stitches, and the tiny puncture wounds naturally close within two days.
