The neck tends to age quickly, often making us look older than we really are. It generally experiences quite a bit of skin laxity and accumulates excess fat, giving the appearance of what is known as “turkey neck.” Through cutting-edge neck fat liposculpture treatments at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our doctors can remove this excess fat, tighten the skin, and restore you to a more youthful state.
It is important that you visit a liposculpture expert for this treatment, as the throat is such a visible part of the body. Our neck liposuction specialists can utilize the innovative tumescent liposculpture method to remove the unwanted double chin and artistically sculpt the area, eliminating the appearance of a turkey neck. This treatment can also improve the appearance of a double chin and sagging jowls. Getting rid of excess fatty deposits from a double chin can dramatically improve the appearance of the entire face, giving you a younger, rejuvenated look!
During your consultation with one of our liposuction experts, the doctor will be able to determine the best treatment for your needs, which may include tumescent liposculpture, laser lipo for a skin tightening effect, or a combination of cosmetic treatments to give you your desired result.
Non-Invasive Neck & Face Rejuvenation
Patients who are just beginning to notice sagging of the skin around the throat may want to consider the non-invasive Ulthera procedure for skin tightening. Ulthera uses ultrasound technology to penetrate the deep layers of tissue underneath the skin and stimulates collagen production to produce a tightening and lifting effect. Without a single incision and no downtime, Ulthera is often a great option for those not ready for full neck liposculpture, who do not have too much excess fat, or who just need subtle rejuvenation.
Double Chin Liposuction FAQs
It is common to have a lot of questions when researching neck liposuction treatments. The doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have compiled a list of answers to frequently asked questions to help you decide if neck liposuction is right for you. Contact our office in San Diego if you have any more questions about double chin fat removal procedures.
Q: Does liposuction under the chin cause loose skin?
A: Generally neck liposuction in this area will not cause loose skin, especially if the patient is on the younger side. If a patient is worried about looseness of the skin, there are skin tightening options available such as CoolLipo or ThermiRF which can be used in conjunction with neck liposuction to ensure tight, smooth skin after the neck liposuction procedure.
Q: Can it be done on the face?
A: Lipo is not usually done on the face, but you may hear the term “facial liposuction” used to refer to liposculpture of the neck, chin, and jowl region. Neck liposuction can rejuvenate the overall appearance of both the neck and face.
Q: What is the recovery like?
A: The exact recovery will depend on the specific procedure utilized in your customized neck liposuction treatment plan; however, most patients return to their normal daily activities within a few days to one week of treatment. You may experience some redness and/or bruising of the treatment area, but this generally dissipates within a week.
Q: What is the price of a procedure?
A: There is not one set price for liposuction of the neck, as each patient’s customized treatment plan will be different. We recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our experienced, board-certified dermatologists so that he/she can assess your problem areas, discuss your desired outcome, and create your individual treatment plan. Then, the cost of liposuction can be determined.
Q: Am I a good candidate?
A: If you are between the ages of 16 and 70 and in good health, you may be a candidate for the procedure. Remember, though, that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, but a procedure to eliminate stubborn fat that does not respond to exercise and a proper diet. Contact our office for a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for facial lipo today.
Q: Who performs this fat reduction procedure?
A: All liposculpture procedures are done by one of our board-certified dermatologists who has had extensive training and experience. Our fat removal experts are among the best in the field and are known for their results.
