Neck Liposuction Beverly Hills
Unwanted fat underneath the chin is a frustrating feature that may not improve with exercise or weight loss. Neck liposuction is an excellent treatment option for this stubborn area. Though commonly performed with a facelift or necklift, neck liposuction can easily be done by itself, especially in younger adult patients who otherwise look youthful. This provides a more contoured profile to the jaw and neck and helps alleviate the stubborn fat underneath the chin.
During the procedure:
The procedure is performed in a fully accredited operating suite and all incisions are very small (about 1 cm) and hidden behind the ears and underneath the chin. The procedure itself is usually an hour long.
A light, elastic compression bandage is worn for the first week to minimize the swelling and bruising; though, some swelling and bruising is normal. Sutures are removed between 5-7 days and most patients are able to resume daily activities around their home the next day and resume social and work activity after a few days, depending on their comfort level.
