Chin and Neck Liposuction: Sculpting the Lower Face
At Tarrant Plastic Surgery, Dr. Vishnu Rumalla has plenty of ways to help patients look toned, trim, and more athletic. When it comes to getting rid of unwanted body fat, the clear option is liposuction, a cosmetic fat removal surgery that can work wonders for your looks.
The team at Keller, TX practice has performed liposuction on various areas of the body, including the love handles, and abdomen, the arms, the thighs, and even parts of the face. With that in mind, we want to consider how liposuction on the chin, jawline, and neck can make a major difference to your appearance.
Fat and Flab Around the Lower Face
Excess fat can build up in different parts the body, including the face. It’s not uncommon for people to accumulate a lot of fat around the jawline, chin, lower cheeks, and neck area. It’s what leads to double chins and faces that appear excessively round. This could be the source of great self-consciousness.
The Limitations of Diet and Exercise
Many people struggle with fat and flab around their neck and chin area, even if they’ve been able to lose fat from other areas of their body just fine. While eating right and going to the gym regularly can help you lose a lot of unwanted body fat, it doesn’t always target the fat you want to lose.
Why Facial Liposuction May Be the Best Option
When diet and exercise won’t help you lose that unwanted body fat or facial fat, it’s important to consider liposuction. Liposuction means targeted fat removal from specific parts of the body, doing what concentrated exercises cannot.
Facial liposuction can be especially helpful when your face is the last problem area you’re dealing with. It’ll help you reveal the definition and contour of your jawline, and can enhance the appearance of your face.
Good Candidates for Chin and Neck Liposuction
Ideal candidates for chin and neck liposuction are people who struggle with losing unwanted fat from around the face. They should be in good overall health and not suffer from medical conditions that would make cosmetic surgery procedures a risk to wellness.
During your visit to our Keller plastic surgery center we can consider all of your options for treatment and which may be most ideal for you.
Eliminating a Double Chin
If you have a double chin, facial liposuction is an excellent option to consider. Just removing a little bit of fat under your chin and along the neckline can help you look slimmer and in better shape as well.
Slimming Out the Jawline
Many people experience loose skin and flab around the lower part of their face. This is particularly an issue as people get older and as jowls form and sag. Thanks to facial liposuction, these problems can be address, helping pattens look years younger in the process.
Will There Be Visible Scars?
Incisions made during liposuction are small, meaning that the resulting scars tend to be minor and difficult to notice. Over the course of weeks and months, these scars will fade to a point that they will be extremely hard to see, even when people are up close.
Additionally, the incisions are made under the chin itself. This is an angle of your face that most people don’t see regularly. The size of the incisions and smart incision placement helps keep the facial liposuction scars as discreet as possible.
