Liposuction Chin & Neck Nashville
Liposuction, or liposculpture, benefits women and men who have isolated deposits of fat, causing certain areas to appear disproportionate. These localized areas may be an inherited trait and typically do not respond to dieting or exercise. In most cases, liposuction is a great, minimally invasive way to eliminate these fat deposit areas.
Liposuction is the surgical removal of fat at a superficial level beneath the skin through well-hidden incisions. One of our board certified surgeons will show you where these incisions would be made during your initial consultation.
Liposuction is often utilized for the chin/neck area to provide a more refined contour to the face. Without undergoing any other procedures, we can dramatically improve the appearance of a thick, wrinkled or sagging neck with this minimally invasive, little downtime surgery. Patients often look years younger or as though he or she has lost weight post-procedure. Neck contouring can also help restore balance to facial features, while providing a more defined jawline
Liposuction removes excess fat but cannot significantly improve sagging skin which is why a consultation with one of our board certified surgeons is the best way to determine if this is the right procedure for you. Results will last as long as a patient maintains a stable weight.
Is This Procedure for You?
The best candidates for chin liposuction are within their normal weight with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of excess fat in chin or neck area. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Your age is not a major consideration, however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin. Other factors that can affect your result include smoking and your skin’s ability to heal following surgery.
Chin Liposuction carries greater risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation or those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.
At the time of your consultation, you will meet with your chosen surgeon who will talk with you about your goals and the best way to achieve your desired outcomes. They will also discuss your medical history and your current medical status. Our goal is to make sure every one of your questions is answered and you feel comfortable with your knowledge of the procedure. In your initial consultation, we will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. He will then explain the body-contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you. It’s important that you describe your expectations upfront so that he can help you determine the best way to meet your goals.
