Neck Liposuction: Define Yourself With A New Jawline

There are genetics that are passed along that are enviable, like blue eyes or dimples, and there are traits that are not-so-desirable, like excess fat storage in the neck region (aka a double chin). Or maybe you’ve recently lost weight, but have found that the weight is stubbornly accumulated in the neck area. One procedure that can effectively target fat storage in the neck region is neck liposuction.

 

Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that sculpts out a perfect neck and jawline by removal of the excess fat. This will enhance a woman’s feminine facial structure, while chiseling out a masculine jawline for a male patient. This will also improve the facial profile, though some patients will pair the procedure with a chin augmentation to further enhance their jawline.

 

Combination surgeries is a frequent concern that patients have. Though people wonder if performing more than one procedure at a time elevates risks, it is a common misconception. In actuality, it consolidates recovery time into a simultaneous healing period and it lowers the overall cost of the procedures.

 

Though neck liposuction is ideal for patients who have a relative amount of elasticity in their skin and firmness in their neck region, there are other surgeries that could be a better option for your concerns and needs.
