When it comes to your face and neck, Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Anita Mandal believes that a little refinement can lead to dramatic improvements. If you have isolated fat deposits along your jaw line, chin or neck, liposuction can give the appearance of a firmer, more defined neck and jawline. As a Palm Beach Plastic Surgery specialist, Dr. Mandal performs face and neck liposuction in her practice near West Palm Beach to restore the youthful contours of the neck and jaw area for a natural look.
Liposuction can sculpt and refine face and neck contours by removing unwanted fat deposits. Since each person’s face and neck are unique, Dr. Mandal customizes the liposuction procedure to your individual needs. She can perform it as an single procedure or combine it with other procedures. For example, chin augmentation with neck liposuction can be very effective in defining the lower face and neckline in patients with early signs of aging who are not yet candidates for a facelift.
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that Dr. Mandal typically performs in her office surgical suite, while the patient is under local anesthesia without the need for IV’s or general anesthesia. Through small hidden micro-incisions, she inserts a thin, hollow tube or cannula under the skin to suction away excess fatty tissue. After the procedure is complete, typically in under an hour, the area is covered with a thin dressing for a few days. Swelling and bruising are typically mild and resolve in about a week. Minimal sutures are removed at one week. Incisions are so small that they are usually not visible once healed.
Neck or face liposuction is often combined with other rejuvenation procedures for enhanced results. Liposuction is often performed with:
- Botox® of the platysmal neck bands to further define the cervico-mental angle
- Genius™ RF / Infini™ RF skin tightening to address sagging skin of the lower face and neck
- Injectable fillers in the marionette lines to further soften the appearance of fatty jowls
- MyEllevate™ to further define the jawline
Kybella Alternative to Surgery
In patients with fat deposits in more limited areas such as with double chin, Kybella® is a great permanent, completely non-surgical option for submental fat removal. In addition to double chin, Kybella® has also been used for the treatment of fatty jowls. Kybella® can also fine tune the results of liposuction by treating small amounts of residual fat.
