Neck liposuction and facial liposuction are separate but related procedures which can be performed together. As with all liposuction procedures, excess fat is extracted from the neck and/or face to create appealing new contours and enhance definition in the targeted areas.
Even patients who are doing everything right in terms of diet and exercise can have excess facial fat and surgery may be the only means of addressing it. Moreover, research has indicated that what patients call a double chin (medically known as submental fat) can harm an individual’s self-esteem, and other types of facial fat are not much better. With the help of intelligently applied liposuction, however, patients can enjoy a more youthful and slimmer look with relatively little downtime.
