Many men and women develop fat underneath the chin as they age, causing them to appear heavier and older than they are. When this occurs, Dr. Farzaneh will commonly recommend neck liposuction to restore a youthful contour and defined jawline.
What is Neck Liposuction?
Neck liposuction is a specialized cosmetic surgery designed to remove excess fat on the neck, reducing the appearance of a “double chin” and creating a more defined jawline.
It is important to note that neck liposuction eliminates excess fat only. If you also have excess skin that needs to be addressed, Dr. Farzaneh will typically perform neck liposuction along with a neck lift to create the smooth and youthful look you desire.
An Overview of the Neck Liposuction Procedure
To begin the neck liposuction procedure, Dr. Farzaneh will first administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety, before making one or two tiny incisions hidden beneath the chin or behind the ears. From there, he will insert a small liposuction cannula, expertly removing excess fat and sculpting a beautiful, and more defined silhouette.
The recovery period for this surgery is relatively easy, with most patients returning to work within one week. Some swelling and bruising in the area is to be expected, though it should resolve completely within two weeks. In addition, the results of your procedure will be permanent, as long as you maintain a stable weight moving forward.

Are You a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?

In addition, ideal candidates for neck liposuction are generally:
