Chin and Neck Liposuction in Albuquerque, NM
If you’re bothered by a double chin, saggy neck, or a droopy jawline, chin and neck liposuction can dramatically improve your appearance by giving you tighter, slimmer, and more athletic facial features.
Liposuction sculpting is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures at our practice. It’s not only safe, but the results are outstanding as they establish a strong jaw line and neck. And the overall liposuction experience involves minimal discomfort.
How does chin and neck liposuction work?
This outpatient surgery that is done in our office under light general anesthesia only requires a tiny incision that we make in the natural lines of your skin. This means any trace of the procedure is nearly imperceptible. With targeted suction, we remove fat and excess skin from your chin, neck, and jawline and tighten it all up to give you a more contoured look.
As we contour the fat around your neck to the perfect thickness, we establish an optimal neck contour that is unique to you alone. We apply a pressure bandage to minimize swelling and bruising.
If neck laxity is what you’re experiencing, there’s a weakening of the thin platysma muscle under the skin, and we can tighten that muscle at the same time as we perform liposuction.
Am I a good candidate for chin liposuction?
If you have fat under your chin and in your neck that won’t go away despite your attempts at dieting and exercise, you may be an excellent candidate for this procedure.
How long will it take to heal from a chin and neck liposuction?
Recovery varies from patient to patient, but initial healing usually takes 7-10 days at which point you should feel comfortable enough to return to your normal, everyday activities.
