Fullness or excess fat under the chin resists almost all efforts to remove it. Even people who maintain a healthy lifestyle can develop a double chin. You can achieve a slimmer, more contoured chin and neck with neck liposuction. This procedure removes stubborn fat to sculpt your neck and define your chin.
Liposuction uses a cannula to break up fat under the skin and suction it out. Surgeons use liposuction as a body sculpting tool. The submental area, the area under the chin, tends to accumulate fat that then refuses to leave. Liposuction can eliminate this difficult fat, leaving your neck slimmer and more refined.
How Does Neck Liposuction Work?
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we specialize in tumescent liposuction. This technique makes liposuction safer and decreases recovery time. Before inserting the cannula to remove the fat, your surgeon will fill the space with a combination of sterile saline and local anesthetic. As a result, you will experience less bruising, swelling, or discomfort after the procedure. Your surgeon will break up and remove the excess fat from your neck and under your chin.
How Much Does Neck Liposuction Cost?
The cost of any cosmetic surgery depends on the surgeon you choose and your location. When asked, a group of providers reported that neck liposuction typically costs between $1,500 and $3,500. Most providers noted that this cost includes most but not all surgical expenses. Neck liposuction may only address submental fat or may extend to excess fat along the jawline.
Can I Have Other Procedures With Neck Liposuction?
Many people choose to have other cosmetic procedures along with their neck liposuction. For people with sagging or loose skin around the neck and chin, a neck lift with liposuction can slim the area and tighten the skin for a sculpted look. If you want your chin to look more defined, chin augmentation with a small silicone implant can give your features strength and contour. You may even have procedures like rhinoplasty to achieve facial balance and harmony. Talk to your surgeon about all your concerns and the results you would like to see.
What is Recovery Like From Neck Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction makes a recovery easier and faster. Most people can go back to work within a week. You can usually resume your usual activities in about two weeks. You may notice some minor swelling or bruising during the first few days after your procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
Good candidates for neck liposuction have excessive fullness under the chin and around the neck. You will see the best results with good skin elasticity so that the skin can tighten naturally after fat removal. You should not have any significant health problems that would prevent you from having surgery.
I had breast augmentation done in November, it’s been 3 months, and I am loving the results. Dr. Sozer did an amazing job and the staff was very friendly.
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
