Neck & Chin Liposuction
Some people develop a fatty, double chin early in life, destroying the natural curvature of the chin and neck. Others develop a floppy-skinned, “turkey gobbler” deformity. This is caused by weakening of the muscles forming a band from the chin to the base of the neck.
To address these problems, a small incision is made in the crease below the chin, excess skin is removed, and the underlying muscles tightened or excised. Liposuction is then used to remove the excess fat in this area. A tiny incision may be added behind the ear to remove excess fat in the neck. When healed, these incisions are tiny and extremely well hidden becoming virtually invisible. A supportive bandage is removed the morning after the surgery and replaced with a light dressing. The final result depends upon the slow progression of the healing process. Improvement continues for months after the surgery.
