Neck contouring uses liposuction to remove accumulated fat, revealing a contoured jaw and sculpted neck. This minimally invasive procedure can provide a dramatic effect for an instant confidence boost.
Is Neck Contouring
right for you ?
Neck contouring is an excellent option for patients looking to remove fat from the neck and jawline. It is typically recommended for younger patients, 20-40 years old, with more robust skin laxity. This procedure can easily be combined with other options, such as a facelift, chin implant, or facial rejuvenation with fat grafting to achieve even more dramatic results.
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to help you decide what procedure is best for you.
Eliminate the appearance of a double chin
Improve overall jaw and neckline profile
Reduce neck wrinkles
Reveal tighter skin along the jawline
A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.
The surgeon makes tiny incisions under the chin on both sides of the face or behind the ears. A slim cannula is then inserted to gently remove stubborn fat in the neck and chin areas. Very few, if any, stitches are needed after liposuction since the incisions are small enough to heal on their own. When necessary, a unique layered suturing technique is used to close incisions, minimizing tension on the incision during the healing process and allowing for minimal scarring.
Liposuction's most common side effects include mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. A compression strap will be worn around the chin for a few days to help reduce these symptoms while healing occurs. Your surgeon will provide detailed postoperative instructions and closely monitor your healing and recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
