In some people, substantial deposits of fat can form in the neck and chin region. These deposits are resistant to dieting and exercise and can create a double chin and displeasing neck bulges and folds. Because these fat deposits generally form in response to genetics, they are almost impossible to remove by non-surgical methods. Neck liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure available in Dallas that can precisely target neck fat and quickly make individuals look younger and trimmer.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. In this procedure, tiny openings are made in the area to be treated and after infusing the area with anesthetic, a cannula is inserted and fat is vacuumed out of the targeted area. For neck liposuction, a tiny opening is usually made just under the chin and sometimes one behind each of the ears. Since there are no key blood vessels in the fat layer under the skin, there is no risk of damaging anything important during neck liposuction, and no visible scars will form. For individuals with excess loose neck skin, better aesthetic results can be achieved if a neck lift is performed at the same time as neck liposuction to produce a trim, tight, more youthful look. If desired, a chin augmentation can easily be added on to the procedure. Neck liposuction in Dallas can usually be performed under sedation with a local anesthetic and takes less than an hour, although if additional procedures are performed, sometimes general anesthesia is necessary and of course it will take longer to complete.
Patients can return to their normal routine within a week; makeup to hide any bruising can be applied if desired. After the swelling subsides, the results will immediately become apparent: a more youthful, elegant, and slimmer look to the neck and chin area. The skin will continue to tighten over the next few weeks to further improve the results. Because the fat cells are permanently removed via liposuction, the fat deposits in the neck are very unlikely to recur, even if the patient gains weight elsewhere in the body.
