Are you looking for ways to improve your neck and jawline to create a more youthful and healthy appearance? Neck liposuction and Chin implants are great options to enhance patient’s features by creating natural structure and contours.
Plastic surgeon baltimore Dr. Jeffrey Schreiber uses liposuction to make the neck look smoother and slimmer while accentuating the jawline. Because liposuction removes excess fat, but cannot significantly improve sagging skin, the typical neck liposuction patient will be younger, his or her 20’s through early 50’s, as younger patients typically have good skin elasticity, which is necessary for the skin to contract smoothly and evenly after liposuction.
For most of Dr. Schreiber’s patients, neck liposuction is a fairly quick procedure, and many times it can be performed using local anesthesia. Through 1 or 2 tiny incisions, concealed beneath the chin or behind the ears, Dr. Schreiber inserts a small liposuction cannula, removing excess fat and sculpting a natural contour to the chin and neck. Following the procedure, patients typically wear a special supportive chin strap for about 3 or 4 days, return to work within 1 week, and are ready to return to full activity after about 2 weeks. It is typical to experience some swelling and bruising after neck liposuction; this should resolve during the first 10 to 14 days after baltimore plastic surgery.
