A nice profile with a defined jawline is the desirable look for most people. Unfortunately, many of us are born with just a little extra fat under their chin. There is also a tendency to develop excess fat in the neck as we age. Liposuction is commonly used to remove subcutaneous fat from the chin and neck areas and better contour them to the patient’s desired image.
Liposuction of the chin and neck is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to contour the neckline and remove excess fat from the area below the chin. Chin and neck liposuction aims at improving the aesthetic appearance by:
- Removal of excess fatty tissue from the chin and neck
- Refinement of the jawline
- Improvement of neck line definition and silhouette
Liposuction is a safe and effective technique for removing fat from the chin, cheeks and jowls. When compared to a facelift, liposuction involves fewer complications, fewer scars, avoids the dangers of general anesthesia, has a more rapid recovery, lower costs and typically gives a more natural appearance.
