Excess fat on the neck and under the chin can affect the youthfulness and definition of your face and profile. For men and women with fat accumulation without sagging skin or tissue, neck liposuction can offer a cosmetic solution. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, offers neck liposuction to restore a slimmer, youthful chin and neck.
Even those with a healthy body weight can have fat deposits under the chin and on the neck. A small amount of fat can make a difference in the definition of the jaw line, chin profile and neck size. For men, excess fat can soften the jaw line and make the face appear heavier, and they may also experience difficulties shaving. For women, a double chin can detract from a svelte appearance. For both genders, neck liposuction can be an option to improve their overall appearance.
Are You a Candidate for Neck Liposuction?
The neck skin and muscles change as you get older. For some people, simply removing excess fat through neck liposuction is not a viable solution. If the skin has lost elasticity, a neck lift procedure is more appropriate. Men and women with good skin and muscle elasticity who only want to remove fat from under the chin or in the neck area are good candidates for neck liposuction.
Dr. Rosenberg can perform neck liposuction and reshaping at our private surgery center. Patients undergoing this procedure will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for the surgery and recovery and options for anesthesia during the procedure. Recovery includes taking antibiotics and resting for about a week before returning to normal activities. Swelling and some discomfort are to be expected, which will dissipate over the days following surgery.
If you want a slimmer neck and chin, neck liposuction and reshaping may be the right procedure for you. Contact the office of Dr. Rosenberg in NYC or Staten Island to schedule a consultation.
