A prevalent cosmetic concern for many adults is the appearance of a double chin due to excess fat around the neck, chin, and jawline. As a result, facial contours, specifically the jawline and chin, are less defined, and individuals may appear older than their actual age. In that case, neck liposuction in Virginia Beach is the best choice for slimming the neck and enhancing facial definitions.

The surgery relies on traditional liposuction methods to remove fat cells for patients of all ages. Though the procedure requires two weeks of recovery, enhancements are immediately noticeable and long-lasting. Schedule a neck liposuction consultation today at Galardi | Bowen Plastic Surgery to talk with our talented team about the surgery and how you could benefit from it.

What is the Neck Liposuction Process and Recovery?

Neck liposuction surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia. Next, our surgeon makes a few incisions either behind the ears or underneath the chin, both places that easily hide scars. Afterward, a small, specialized tube goes within the incisions for liposuction, which then liquefies and vacuums away fat cells.

Consequently, the number of fat cells underneath the chin reduces and eliminates the appearance of a double chin. However, the amount of fat that liposuction may remove varies based on a patient’s fat volume, so realistic expectations for results are necessary.

Normally, neck liposuction patients in Virginia Beach must wear a supportive chin strap for up to 1 week. After two weeks of recovery, it is safe to resume a patient’s full range of daily activities, including exercise.

Possible Appearance Changes After Neck Liposuction

Primarily, neck liposuction surgery in Virginia Beach reduces excess fullness underneath the chin resulting in a double chin appearance. An added benefit is the improved definition of the jawline and chin, which could balance facial proportions as the features are vital focal points. Further, neck liposuction may substantially rejuvenate a patient’s overall facial appearance.

However, the surgery may provide better results for patients up through their 40s as skin laxity has not usually declined significantly by this point. After neck liposuction, good skin laxity is vital for the skin to adhere to the newly enhanced neck, chin, and jawline contours. Therefore, older patients in their 60s to 80s may benefit more from a surgical neck lift if loose, sagging skin is a substantial concern in addition to excess fat.
