What is Neck and Jowl Liposuction?

As we age, the skin loses elasticity and volume, resulting in wrinkles, lines, loose skin and localized deposits of fat. These visible signs of aging appear in the face and neck areas first, often resulting in an accumulation of fat in the neck or creating a jowled appearance underneath the chin.

On sensitive, highly visible areas such as these, liposuction can effectively create natural-looking contours with minimal scarring. A common aesthetic procedure worldwide, liposuction permanently removes fat with a technique that is less invasive and is less traumatic to the body than surgery.

During liposuction, tiny (2mm) incisions are created in and around the areas being treated. A small, hollow tube called a cannula is then inserted through the incisions and gently manipulated to break up fat cells. The fat is then extracted through the cannula using vacuum suction.

Neck and Jowl liposuction can be performed as a standalone treatment or combined with other cosmetically enhancing procedures such as ThermiTight. These options can be discussed during your consultation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neck and Jowl Liposuction?

Men and women aged 40 and younger who have excess skin with good elasticity, are in good health, have realistic expectations and have no contraindicating medical conditions are typically approved for this procedure. For individuals older than 40, liposuction alone may not be enough to effectively reverse the signs of aging, and other procedures may need to be utilized. The options that are available to you will be discussed during your consultation.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Slight bruising and swelling at the incision sites is common but temporary, and should subside within a few days. When combined with other procedures, more time off from work may be required.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The fat from your neck and jowl areas is removed permanently, but results can still be affected by the natural aging process as well as fluctuations in weight. Maintaining proper diet and exercise as well as taking care of your skin will help add longevity to your sculpted, younger-looking profile.
