One of the most common cosmetic concerns adults have regarding their appearance is a double chin due to excess fat accumulation. In some cases, individuals may struggle with extra fullness underneath the chin due to excess fat despite maintaining a stable, healthy weight. In these situations, neck liposuction in Fort Worth can be a great option for slimming your chin, neck, and jawline.
Your skin health, cosmetic goals, and amount of extra body fat may determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this surgical procedure, so it is important to speak with Dr. Steele about your medical history and goals during an initial consultation. To schedule yours, give us a call today.
People struggling with extra fat in the neck or jowls while maintaining a healthy, stable weight are good candidates for neck liposuction. Since the procedure does not prevent new, additional fat cells from forming, neck liposuction patients must maintain their ideal weight before and after surgery. Otherwise, weight gain after the procedure could result in a double chin returning after surgery.
Since liposuction procedures exclusively focus on removing excess fat cells from treatment areas, having sufficient skin elasticity is important for optimal results. This means that the procedure tends to be better suited for younger individuals, with good skin elasticity. In many cases, FaceTite will be combined with neck liposuction to optimize skin contraction. However, without adequate skin elasticity, liposuction treatments could result in visibly loose or sagging skin on treatment areas.
Liposuction uses a minimally invasive approach to remove excess fat cells from the body through minor incisions that typically fade over time. For neck liposuction procedures, the incisions are placed behind the ears and underneath the chin, resulting in minimal visible scars. This procedure is minimally invasive, and you should be able to return to normal activities after a few days.
By eliminating extra fat from the neck and chin, neck liposuction can provide patients in Fort Worth with several other cosmetic and emotional benefits. For example, the procedure significantly enhances the definition of your jawline and neck. Neck liposuction can also provide a more balanced and proportionate appearance between the facial features and the neck.
For most neck liposuction patients, the surgery’s effects are apparent for five to ten years afterward. After a decade, some individuals will likely develop new skin laxity and extra fat accumulation on the neck due to aging. Individuals who undergo neck liposuction surgery at an earlier age may enjoy their results for longer than ten years, depending on skin elasticity. Dr. Steele can provide more insight into what to expect from your surgery and how long the effects of your neck liposuction might last.
Despite being at a healthy weight, many individuals develop excess fullness beneath their chin due to genetics, older age, and aging skin. If you are tired of being insecure about your double chin and are ready to explore our surgical options, consider neck liposuction in Fort Worth.
