Liposuction for the Chin and Neck

By Steven Wiener M.D. on June 10, 2019

A woman's chin and neck in profileAs people gain weight, a lot of the excess body fat they gain accumulates around the abdominal area and the lower body. This is a natural manner of fat distribution. Some body fat also winds up around parts of the face. That’s why Dr. Steven H. Wiener performs liposuction for facial rejuvenation and fat reduction, which can have a dramatic impact on a person’s appearance. Many patients in the Scottsdale, AZ area have benefited from facial liposuction.

The team at New Image Plastic Surgery would like to consider the need for facial liposuction, how effective the procedure is, the benefits to patients, and who is an ideal candidate for facial fat reduction.

Flabbiness Around the Lower Face

With excessive weight gain, it’s not uncommon for people to accumulate fat in the lower portion of the face. This typically means the neck and the chin area. This facial flabbiness is what causes double chins and a host of other aesthetic issues. While a lot of this fat goes away with normal weight loss, some of it will remain in place despite a healthy diet and regular exercise.

To remove this facial fat, some patients undergo facial liposuction. This will allow the unwanted pockets of fat to be sucked out of the face and neck area, leaving a person’s face looking slimmer, trimmer, and better proportioned overall.

The Benefits of Facial Liposuction

The key benefits of facial liposuction include:

  • Improved facial appearance
  • Slimmer overall appearance
  • Results that diet and exercise cannot achieve
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Lasting cosmetic results

Good Candidates for Facial Liposuction

Good candidates for facial liposuction are people who have flabbiness of the neck and chin that will not go away despite weight loss in other parts of the body. They should be in good overall health so that the liposuction procedure is not a detriment to their overall health and wellness. During a consultation at our Scottsdale practice, we can go over the pros and cons of the procedure for your situation in greater detail.

How Much Fat Is Removed During Chin and Neck Liposuction?

The amount of fat removed during facial liposuction can vary from patient to patient. We will remove enough fat to improve the overall appearance and shape of the lower portion of your face, but we will avoid removing too much fat in order to ensure a natural overall look. This topic can also be discussed in the consultation process.

Will There Be Visible Scarring?

Generally no. While there will be minute incisions made to insert the cannula and extract fat from the chin and neck, all efforts will be made to keep these incision areas out of sight. When the incisions heal, the scars will be small and difficult to detect.

The Results of Facial Liposuction

The results of facial liposuction can be dramatic. If you’ve lost a lot of weight, the facial liposuction may be the last touch required to make you appear much slimmer overall. Many of our patients are extremely satisfied with the final outcomes of their chin and neck liposuction.

Is Chin and Neck Liposuction Right for Me?

The best way to find out if chin and neck liposuction is ideal for you and your needs is to schedule a consultation at our Scottsdale plastic surgery center. We can answer your questions, address your concerns, and go over various treatment options that may be right for you.
