Chin & Neck Liposuction Inland Empire
Excess weight around the neck and chin can make you seem heavier and older than you actually are. A smooth and well defined chin and jaw line can make a world of difference in your appearance. At plastic Surgery SoCal, Chin and Neck Liposuction/Liposculpture is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that involves virtually no down time and results can be seen immediately. Dr. Wali uses advanced liposculpture procedure to create a younger and thinner appearance by improving unattractive neck rolls, bulging jowls or double chins.
Reasons for considering Chin or Neck Liposuction
- Excess tissue around the neck
- Large and bulging jowls
- Double chin
Am I a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for chin or neck lipo are patients who have not had any luck losing stubborn fat with the help of diet and exercise. While diet and exercise are excellent for overall health and generalized fat reduction, they are not effective for spot reduction. Liposuction provides effective spot reduction, permanently removing fat cells to contour the area.
Ideal candidates have realistic expectations in terms of results and are in good health. Good candidates are non-smokers, since smoking negatively affects the health of the skin. After liposuction, skin must contract to fit the region’s new contours, and skin elasticity declines as a result of smoking. Patients considering chin or neck liposuction must quit smoking at least two weeks before treatment and for the entirety of recovery.
Your Initial Liposuction Consultation
During your initial lipo consultation, Dr. Wali will ask you about your goals for the procedure. He will also perform an examination of the area to ensure that chin and neck liposuction is right for you.
Dr. Wali will go into detail regarding the procedure, including the necessary steps for preparation. He will also ask you about your complete medical history, including past procedures, current medications, and allergies.
Liposculpture improves body symmetry by removing fat deposits that develop between the skin and muscle tissue. By removing the fat Dr. Wali is able to smooth, slim and sculpt the neck. All Liposculpture procedures are performed by Dr. Wali at our Plastic Surgery SoCal Facility and are typically performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Wali begins by creating a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location around the chin or neck. Next he inserts a thin hollow device called a cannula through the incision and begins vacuuming the unwanted fat deposits. Tumescent anesthetic fluid is used during the procedure to liquefy the fat, enabling it to flow through even the smallest cannula. The procedure usually lasts 30-60 minutes but will depend on how much fat is being removed from the chin and neck area.
Post procedure, patients generally report little pain and often return to work almost immediately with no down time. Following Dr. Wali’s care directions diligently will ensure a quick recovery while minimizing the chance of complications.
A degree of post-surgical bruising and swelling will be present in the treated region, but these will fade quickly. A chin strap may be worn after surgery to aid in this process. Ice packs can also help to reduce swelling. Additionally, it will be necessary to keep your head elevated at all times.
