Do you look in the mirror or see younger pictures of yourself and wince at the double chin you’ve developed over the years?

If so, you may be interested in learning more about liposuction for the neck.

As people age, skin begins to lose elasticity which means it loosens. Muscle laxity also occurs which can cause sagging in the center of the neck.

Due to a shift in hormones, many people also start accumulating fat under the chin. This fat, along with the loose skin, sags underneath the chin causing a double chin.

Not to worry, however, there is a solution: Removing neck fat with liposuction and manually tightening the muscles and skin (via neck lift surgery) can effectively eradicate a double chin.

How It Works

When you decide to get rid of your double chin, you can benefit from the procedure in two ways. Before we surprise you with the second way, here’s how it’s done.

By using liposuction, we remove fat from under your chin and neck area. Instead of throwing this fat away, we can send it to a FDA registered laboratory for processing. We are part of a network of authorized providers offering fat storage for later use in autologous fat transfer surgery.

Once the processed fat is ready, we can then inject it into another part of the body. For example, some patients decide to have the fat injected into their faces because as they have aged, they have lost fat and have sagging skin or deep wrinkles and creases.

Filling the face with the fat from the neck can bring back a more youthful appearance to any area of the face.

Some patients would like to inject their fat tissue into their breasts. This is referred to as a natural breast augmentation because the bosom is enlarged with fat rather than breast implants.

Think about an area of your body you’d like to enlarge and maybe other body areas you’d like to tighten. This is what you could do with fat transfer.  Of course, not enough fat exists in the neck to augment the breasts. Your plastic surgeon will offer you the option of having additional liposuction on another area of the body such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, or thighs if you desire a natural breast augmentation.
