Neck Liposuction in Baltimore, MD
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Theda C. Kontis offers neck liposuction to the residents of Baltimore, Maryland, Washington, DC, and the surrounding areas.
Liposuction is a technique that sculpts and reshapes areas of your body by removing unwanted deposits of fat, and neck liposuction focuses on specific areas of the face and neck. Patients find neck liposuction to be an effective way to restore a youthful contour to the jaw line. The procedure can enhance your overall look and impact your self-esteem by making you feel younger and more attractive.
How is neck liposuction done?
Liposuction is generally performed under local anesthesia. A small tube called a cannula is used to suction and aspirate fat deposits from under the chin and other areas of the neck. A small amount of excess, loose skin may be removed during the procedure.
Is neck liposuction appropriate for everyone?
Neck liposuction is most effective on younger patients with small collections of fat under the chin, and it can help many people achieve a smoother neck contour. However, if larger amounts of fat and skin need to be removed and if the skin no longer has sufficient elasticity to snap back into the normal neck contour, achieving a proper jaw contour may not be possible with neck liposuction alone. In these cases a lower face and neck lift would be required. Contact our office and learn more about whether neck liposuction is the right choice for you.
