Excess fat in the chin, neck and cheeks may lead to the appearance of being overweight. Despite aggressive diet and exercise routines, this fat often will not go away. To fix this, Dr. Demetri can perform a minor procedure called neck (submental) liposuction.
It’s important for patients to schedule a consultation before neck liposuction so that they have all of the information they need. This will allow them to feel more at ease regarding the procedure and what it can offer them.
During the consultation, patients will also get the opportunity to ask questions regarding the procedure and can bring up any concerns they may have. Everything from the cost to the aftercare can be discussed so that they can prepare ahead of time.
Dr. Demetri uses very small incisions that are hidden so there are no noticeable scars. Then, he will use a suction cannula to gently remove the undesirable fat with a vacuum. He is able to improve the jawline and double chin all at the same time.
After the fat has been removed, Dr. Demetri wants his patients to use compression dressing for a couple days at nighttime. This allows the skin to settle smoothly over the new and improved neckline.
Patients will be advised to rest over the course of the recovery period. Surgical bandages will be used to cover the affected areas, and instructions on how to care for the region will also be provided.
Patients will be able to return to work after three days, as long as there are no strenuous movements involved. Full recovery can be as short as a week.
Yes! Buccal fat removal is performed for those patients who have round cheeks but desire a more defined facial appearance. As a hereditary condition, it is nearly impossible for some people to get rid of their “chubby cheeks.” Buccal fat removal is the solution for this! It can help slim the cheeks and contour the face better.
The final cost of a neck liposuction procedure can depend on several factors, including the exact techniques used and the time required to perform the surgery. Price can often be determined when patients come in for their scheduled consultation.
