Liposuction Area Spotlight: The Chin

If you are like many people, you may find that you have extra fat located under your chin. You may also have these extra fat deposits along the jowl and neck area. This fat can be a result of weight gain, genetics, or even pregnancy. The fat can often lead to the “double chin” or “turkey neck.”

If you are carrying around extra fat in the chin and neck, it can also make you look heavier than you are. Excess fat in these highly visible areas can make you look overweight and/or less fit. About the age of 40, people will start to experience a “drop zone” that cause saggy cheeks and an overall heaviness to the jawline and jowl.

The good news is that liposuction can help you achieve a firmer, sleeker look. And with that firmer look, you will also gain a more youthful appearance, with toned skin and a better profile.

Chin Liposuction

With chin liposuction, you can easily gain a more slender, contoured chin and neckline. Often, chin liposuction is performed with liposuction on other facial areas to give you an overall improved look. Additionally, skin tightening, resurfacing, and other cosmetic procedures are performed for a smoother, younger look. The tumescent liposuction procedure is one of the best options to contour these areas. This virtually pain-free technique is minimally invasive and very effective.

The Procedure

A tumescent anesthetic solution will be injected in the treatment area. This solution serves double duty, as it will numb the area, along with loosening up the fat. The fat will then be gently suctioned away using tiny cannulas.

You may be required to wear compression bandages for a few days to ensure that the healing process proceeds in the best manner. You will not experience any scarring, which is very important when considering the facial area.
