One of the common effects of aging is excess fat accumulating below the jaw line. For many people, it is almost impossible to lose neck fat with diet and exercise, and you may be feeling very self-conscious about that double chin. Liposuction performed around the neck can enhance your facial contours and create a more youthful and defined appearance. It is a very targeted and effective procedure for anyone who wants more jaw definition and a well-contoured look.
Why Neck Liposuction May Be Right for You
Do you find yourself hiding under scarves and wearing turtlenecks just to hide your neck? Many people who have sagging jowls and excess fat around the neck avoid wearing clothes and jewelry that attract attention to the face and may even hide behind layers to mask the problem. That extra fat and lack of definition can be even more visible in photos — especially candid shots taken with unflattering camera angles.
If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about your facial profile and just want to maintain a more youthful face shape, consider the benefits of a facial liposuction procedure. Neck liposuction in Denver is a targeted fat removal procedure that can create a more chiseled and give you a more youthful contour.
What to Expect with Neck Liposuction
Liposuction of the neck is a targeted procedure and requires making a very small incision right under the chin or around the earlobes. A cannula is inserted into the incision to break up the fatty deposits and remove excess fat while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed and intact. It can be a delicate procedure because only the tissue around the jawline needs to be treated. Once the fat is removed and the swelling is resolved, you will notice a significant improvement in the contours of your face and your skin will appear tighter and smoother as it heals.
Whether it’s because of genetics or weight gain, excess fat around the neck can detract from an otherwise youthful appearance and make you feel self-conscious.
