Both men and women can store excess fat under their chin and around the neck. This can be caused by genetics, weight gain and even some health conditions that affect the shape of the chin, jawline and neck. Liposuction can remove the excess fatty tissue and reshape the neck for a more defined chin, jawline and neck. Dr. Ali Charafeddine and our team at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offer neck liposuction and reshaping at our medical center in Miami.
Excess fat on the neck or under the chin are common facial problems. While it can occur due to weight gain or aging, even young adults can have excess neck fat or a double chin. Genetics often play a role in where fat is stored, as you can be height-weight proportionate and still have a double chin. Liposuction or liposculpture is used to remove fat deposits under the chin and on the neck to create a slimmer, more defined neck and jaw line.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Neck Reshaping?
Liposuction can remove fat cells permanently to reshape the neck and chin, but not everyone is a candidate for liposuction alone. Good candidates for neck liposuction are individuals who want to reshape their neck with fat removal but also have good skin elasticity. Those who have excess or loose skin on the neck with fatty deposits may require both liposuction and a neck lift to reshape and slim their neck and chin.
If excess fat on your neck and under your chin are impacting your appearance and self-confidence, consider the benefits of neck liposuction. Contact our team at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute in Miami to schedule a neck reshaping consultation with our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ali Charafeddine, to discuss whether liposuction is right for you.
