AAs we age or experience fluctuations in body weight, our neckline can often suffer. If it seems that no amount of exercise will remove the loose skin and excess fat that accumulates in the chin, neck, and jowl areas, neck liposuction could be the answer.
Liposuction can create a firmer, smoother and more refined appearance. Improving this one feature can even help patients look years younger or as if they’ve lost weight.
For most patients, neck liposuction is a fairly quick procedure and can be performed using local anesthesia. Dr. McCullom will remove excess fat and sculpt a natural contour using one or two small incisions, concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears. After the procedure is over, patients typically wear a supportive chin strap for a few days and return to work within 1 week. It is typical for some swelling and bruising to occur, but this should be resolved within 10 to 14 days post surgery.
If patients maintain a stable body weight, the results of this procedure are permanent and can bring balance to the facial features. You can expect a strong jawline and chin that look natural, attractive and more youthful. This procedure can also be combined with others, including rhinoplasty, to further enhance facial contours.
As it is a delicate area of the body, Dr. McCullom takes special care to safely perform neck liposuction. He is highly trained and experienced, delivering great results to his patients.
