LOWER FACE AND NECK LIPOSUCTION
Ideally, the lower face and neck region should have a lean, angular, well defined appearance, and a clearly marked transitional delineation from the lower face to the neck. Unfortunately, as a result of weight gain or the natural aging process, fat may accumulate in this area, distorting the lower facial contours and creating an undesirably round, wide facial appearance. These stubborn fat pockets in the lower face and neck region can also contribute to the development of a double chin, neck bands, “jowls,” and weak jaw definition. Attempting to eliminate lower face and neck fat through diet and exercise alone is often a very frustrating endeavor, which is why liposuction surgery of the lower face and neck is an effective and rewarding option for many patients.
Liposuction of the lower face and/or neck region is a surgical procedure performed to remove surplus fat from the lower face and neck area, thereby restoring a more youthfully defined facial profile and aesthetically desirable lower face and neck contours. As with any facial surgery, in order to safely achieve a successful outcome your lower face and neck liposuction should be performed by an experienced and skillful surgeon, such as Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, world-renowned oculofacial plastic surgeon whose private practice is located in beautiful Beverly Hills, California.
LOWER FACE AND NECK LIPOSCULPTING PROCEDURE
Schedule A Consultation with Dr. Steinsapir
The exact amount of fat removed during your lower face and neck liposuction surgery will depend upon your specific facial structure and cosmetic objectives. During your initial consultation, Dr. Steinsapir will perform a careful assessment before making his treatment recommendations, and will create a custom-tailored treatment plan to fulfill your cosmetic facial rejuvenation goals.
During your lower face and neck liposuction procedure, Dr. Steinsapir will make small incisions below your chin and just behind the ear lobes, before saturating the fat with tumescent solution (used to numb the fat), in order to prepare it for removal. He then use a small, tubular surgical instrument known as a microcannula to suction the excess fat from the neck, lower chin, and jaw region. Patients are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the process is. It is possible to have just local anesthetic for this amazing procedure.
When your lower face and neck liposuction is complete, Dr. Steinsapir will wrap the treatment area with gauze, and provide you with a soft facial compression garment to promote proper skin contraction and reduce swelling during the healing process. This is typically worn for just three days and the swelling is typically very acceptable. Many patients have the procedure at the end of the week and return to work after the weekend. Minimal swelling hides the fact that any work was done, and as the procedure heals over the course of many weeks, your improved, subtly slimmer facial contours will be revealed.
The overarching goal of any liposuction surgery is to target and eliminate excess fat—this procedure is not optimally suited to correct aesthetic concerns pertaining to excess, loose, or sagging neck skin, which is why the ideal lower face and neck liposuction candidates should have adequate skin tone and elasticity in the lower face and neck region. Patients seeking to treat and correct skin laxity (looseness) in the lower face and neck region may benefit from a neck lift procedure in lieu of, or as an ancillary procedure performed together with their lower face and neck liposuction.
